It’s no secret that I’m the world’s biggest fan of Michael Bernard Fitzgerald. Seriously. I once emailed him my thoughts on what one of his music videos should look like. The fact that he’s a Calgarian is just icing on the cake.
If you’re new to MBF’s music, I’m sorta jealous of you. Because you once you start listening, it’s a really unique feeling knowing that you’re listening to someone who’s going to be one of the biggest Canadian artists around someday. His latest album “I Wanna Make It With You” is just really fantastic, as is his older stuff when he was just getting started.
In his relatively short career, MBF has already shared the stage and toured with Joel Plaskett, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Steve Winwood, Third Eye Blind, Sam Roberts, Stars, K-OS, The Wallflowers, Elliott Brood, Lights and many more. He’s also played Firefly Festival, Mountain Jam, Calgary Folk Music Festival, X Fest, Virgin Fest, Regina Folk Festival The Calgary Stampede and Capital Ex.
One of the reasons I love following MBF’s career is because he’s so incredibly innovative. From his videos, to his concerts and social media presence, he’s changing out artists promote themselves and it’s a ton of fun to watch. All of this talent will culminate in a show coming up on Friday, February 17th at The Palace (Formerly Flames Central.) Tickets are only $25 and the show will also feature Calgary’s favs Windigo and from Brandon, Manitoba Middle Coast.
If you’re looking to get your hands on tickets, and helping the environment at the same time, (how often can you say that?), check out TreeEra, a Calgary-based organization,
which is actually co-founded by MBF himself! TreeEra is a subscription community that pays for the planting and continued care of hundreds (in some cases thousands) of trees.
Those that subscribe to become a part of the TreeEra community before Feb 17, 2017 will receive a ticket to Michael Bernard Fitzgerald’s concert. This is an amazing opportunity to support a few different communities, all at once. Email Melissa (Melissa@treeera.com) to claim your ticket.
Either way, make sure you get yourself to the MBF concert. You’ll be glad you did. I know I always am!
