About the Event
A reformed bank manager, Kimberly realized she was doing a successful job of living someone else’s life—and a poor job living her own. In 2013, she launched her original songs into the world and took centre stage.
She has since released three full-length albums, and was awarded Female Artist of the Year at both the 2015 and 2016 Edmonton Music Awards.
She lovingly crafts and passionately performs songs that will move your heart, change your mind and stomp your feet. Weaving seamlessly between blues, folk and rock, her common threads are strength, vulnerability and badassery, always sizzling with soul.
“As in the past, MacGregor's voice takes the spotlight. With remarkable ease and fluidity she shapeshifts her instrument to fit the songs, from gritty and raw lo-fi tracks - think Black Keys- to modern soul, blues stompers, and folk tinged rock. A solid branch off the Lucinda Williams, Bonnie Raitt, Melissa Etheridge or Patty Griffin family tree.” - Kathy Valentine (Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, The Go-Go's)

Danny Bell and His Disappointments play Northern bc folk/country/punk with infections charm. Based in British Columbia on unceded Lhedli T'enneh territory, Danny’s music is regional. It’s steeped in his affection for his home in the hinterland, a blue collar town, the stink of the pulp mill, and everyday life in Northern BC. Bell's songs toe the line between tragedy and comedy.
Danny Bell and His Disappointments released their second album, “Songs for the town”, in December of 2020. Exclaim! magazine called the album an “anti-capitalist, anti-elitist, anti-asshole folk record for small moments in small places.”The band’s newest release, titled Killing birds, was mostly recorded in the foreman’s office in an abandoned sawmill just outside of Mackenzie, BC. The EP’s songs are reactions to a change in pace and identity during the pandemic. the slow pace and isolation of a part-time security job brought new perspective.
“It’s mysterious, artistically witty and grounding. It seems that Danny Bell discovered something invaluable and unique in those seemingly insignificant parts of our life.”
