12/9/2016 BeatRoute’s Standout Calgary Acts Of 2016

A strong showing at last year’s Peak Performance Project brought light upon the Calgarian roots act Northern Beauties. Todd Stewart sings and rocks the stanky leg, and Craig Aikman plucks the banjo and electric guitar. Their heart-on-sleeve lyricism and dual lead vocal styling is magnetic, but 2016 also featured a fair few opportunities to see them as a six-piece with some of Alberta’s finest players, including Charlie Hase on the pedal steel. They rocked Block Heater in February, JUNOfest in April, Folk Fest in July, and after an excellent performance at Alberta Showcase, you might be seeing them touring around Alberta come spring. Craig also got married this fall, so things are going well on a couple of different levels.
