To celebrate all the music genres and styles that are inspired by similar storytelling tradition as country music, Off-Country Music Series will run during Country Music Week (September 8 -11, 2022) and showcase approximately 50 acts in venues along the Music Mile and in surrounding venues in Calgary.
This is a paid performance opportunity. The majority of programming will prioritize Calgary-based artists, but we welcome any artists outside of Calgary to apply! Off Country will feature live music from artists who primarily perform country music on the fringes: Alt-Country, Americana, Roots, Singer-Songwriter, Blues, Rock, etc.
This opportunity is for acts who mostly perform original music and are emerging to mid-level in their careers.
All ages are welcome to apply as we will be programming an emerging artist showcase as well as presenting in some all-ages venues.
