Sasquatch Gathering 22 returns to Rangeton Park, AB July 28-30 to make good on its mission to provide a blend of roots and blues to match the pristine splendour of its natural surroundings . That said, the festival is also injecting a few elements of rock-oriented, electronic and even hip-hop talent into the mix of more than 20 acts on the roster.

That eclectic combination is evident among Edmonton acts either hitting the Sasquatch stage for the first time or are being asked back. Newcomers like hip-hop performer Tzadeka and roots musician Jay Gilday comprise part of the local contingent, which includes returnees like blues party band Boogie Patrol, rockabilly rowdies Punch Drunk Cabaret, children’s entertainer Ben Spencer, soul ensemble Nadine Kellman & the Black Wonders, blues troupe Kimberley MacGregor Band and roots combo Billie Zizi Trio.

“These folks are Sasquatch family,” says Jenika Watson, the festival’s artistic director. “Festival Producer John Armstrong and I managed to pull together another tantalizing lineup. There really is so much to say about each of the bands we have selected.”

The selection process resulted in adding six B.C. based attractions, including reggae artist Buckman Coe, surf-rockers Kitty & the Rooster and alternative folkies Marina & the Specks, No Mothers, Twin Peaks and The Skye Wallace Band (with members from Vancouver and Toronto). Additional music groups include Quebec-based electro-fusion trio The OM Sound, Saskatchewan folk group Raven She Hollers and Australian folk act This Way North.

Also performing on site will be Duffy’s Puppets and Musical Mamas. Yoga, face painting courtesy of owlspotted, massage, a sweat hut and the highly-anticipated potluck meal complete the activities during the three-day festival.

Early Bird passes for Sasquatch Gathering 22 are $70 (plus service charge) and available at yeglive.ca and Blackbyrd Myoozik. For more information, go online to sasquatchgathering.com.
