The Bailey Theatre presents: MAC DADDY – The Fleetwood Mac Experience
Every song evokes a memory. Every lyric takes you back.
MAC DADDY – The Fleetwood Mac Experience celebrates the music of Fleetwood Mac with integrity and passion. This is a Fleetwood Mac live experience that pays homage to the classic line-up of the band, with respect for its artistry and influence on popular music and culture.
You’ll hear all the songs you know so well, as well as some classic tracks Fleetwood Mac has never played live. MAC DADDY performs Fleetwood Mac’s biggest hits from the ‘70s and ‘80s, and even touches on their early years as a British blues band.
It’s time to get your Mac on. Its time for MAC DADDY!
Shikaoi Park, Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. June 19 – August 7, 2019
Bring your blanket or lawn chair to this free music series featuring Canadian talent. Tim Isberg, accompanied by band mates Marc Ladouceur and John Hewitt will headline the concert and entertain with songs from his newest album ‘Running On The Edge’, along with others.
Sled Island Music & Arts Festival which is held annually at 30+ venues across Calgary’s downtown core. Our 13th edition will take place from June 19 – 23, 2019. Each year, hundreds of volunteers help us make the festival possible. In return, volunteers receive a free festival pass that gives them access to all Sled Island music, comedy, art and film events, discounts for goods and services at select businesses around the city and many more perks! It also gives them an opportunity to meet like-minded individuals and to get acquainted with Calgary’s music and arts community.
There are many volunteer roles available such as admitting festival goers at venues, helping with the installation of art exhibits, or serving drinks at various events. We need a variety of talents to fill our wide range of positions and can accommodate different schedules and abilities. This year, in order to foster added engagement of youth participation with the festival, we have reduced the amount of volunteer participation for those who are 16 & 17 years old to only 8 hours.
Inclusivity is incredibly important to us here at Sled Island, and we want to ensure that all Calgarians have the chance to participate in this diverse and one-of-a-kind festival. Folks can also find more information on our website at sledisland.com/volunteer or by contacting us at email@example.com.
Volunteer registration is now open!

2019 is the 25th anniversary of the tragic Rwandan genocide. As a young army captain in the summer of 1994, Tim Isberg was deployed for a one year mission to Rwanda as an unarmed UN Military Observer. It was his first of many tours of duty, but one that would change his life forever.
Combining a cascade of photographs, genuine stories and live music, Tim will share a very personal account of his experiences in Rwanda and songs it inspired.
ACMA Male Artist of the Year Nominee, Tim is an accomplished singer-songwriter originally from Alberta, Canada, who is emerging in the performance scene after a lengthy hiatus from music to serve in the Canadian Army. From Rwanda to Afghanistan, Tim experienced the challenges of living and working in different cultures and conflicts, and amid the best and worst humanity has to offer. As a performer, he has entertained audiences in many corners of Europe, east Africa, Afghanistan and throughout the Middle East and Levant. Many of his storyteller songs stem from these life adventures.
Tim brings well crafted contemporary Americana songs to the stage along with an appealing vocal timbre in styles similar to Lennie Gallant, Ryan Adams, Rodney Crowell, and JJ Cale. More than that, Tim brings a special and endearing array of life experiences and shares them in a way that makes each listener feel connected. With a genuineness, sincerity and a natural sense of humour carefully woven through a fabric of stories and songs, it is Tim’s live show – whether solo or up to his full band – where he shines most. His shows are not to be missed!
Headlining folk circuits around the globe, Emmy award nominee Ruthie Foster has shared the stage with the likes of Bonnie Raitt, the Allman Brothers and Susan Tedeschi. Her soulful voice combines a taste of blues with the gospel of the American South in an intimate night with this talented songstress.
Inspired by the desire of youth to break away and be free. To seek freedom from imposed rules and becoming something that you do not want to become and finally finding some sort of redemption and peace from those wild and reckless years.
