For its second year, the Big Rock Barn Burner is heating up our Calgary brewery.
Let’s come together to enjoy an afternoon of live music, great food, cold beer and good company.
The Barn Burner transforms our brewery grounds into Calgary’s most unique music venue. This year we are pleased to reward your ears with our headliner, Sam Roberts Band along with Leeroy Stagger, and Jacob Rose.
Ticket Cost: $35, available through Eventbrite or at the door
Members: Sam Roberts, Dave Nugent, Josh Trager, Eric Fares
Sam Roberts Band is a staple in the Canadian alt-rock scene. Since coming into frame in 2000, the band has seen major airtime in Canada and the United States, having multiple successful singles coming from all six of their studio albums. Sam Roberts Band’s music has been described as confident, passionate, and energetic, all of which speak to the immense pleasure Big Rock Brewery has in welcoming this amazing band to the Barn Burner stage.
Since first making his mark on the Canadian independent music scene at the turn of this century, Leeroy Stagger has toured the world, both on his own and with the likes of Steve Earle, Pixies, Modest Mouse and Evan Dando. Although Stagger’s sound has most often been tagged Americana, in reality it’s always been much broader than that description might suggest. Learning to keep his art separate from any particular genre is a challenge Leeroy Stagger has confidently taken up and we are pleased to welcome his unique and beautiful sound to the Barn Burner festival.
Big Rock Brewery is excited to welcome singer-songwriter Jacob Rose to the Barn Burner stage. Splitting his time between his home-base of Alberta, and New Brunswick where he attends St. Stephen’s University, Jacob’s style traverses rock, hip-hop, folk, and pop genres. Drawing influence from Mumford & Sons, Ed Sheeran, and Jack Johnson, Rose is carving out a space for his own distinct sound, exploring subjects of identity, politics, religion, and justice in his music. In 2016, his song “Marco Polo” was a finalist in the Roots/Folk and Country categories at the YYC Music Awards. You won’t want to miss this up-and-comer kick off the second annual Big Rock Barn Burner.
