Morning Music Notes – The show MUST go on! …except, without the show.
The recently flooded grounds of the Calgary Stampede are set to stage one of the greatest comebacks of all time.
Less than a month after bible-grade flooding in Calgary’s downtown, the Stampede track has been re-built, and is currently a 9 on the Chuckwagon 10-scale. This is great news if you love watching range sports, but there’s a sadder side to the story for music-loving Calgarians. All of the music has been cancelled because of poor air quality in the music venues; including K-OS, Sam Roberts Band, Corb Lund, Carly Rae Jepsen, Tim McGraw, Dixie Chicks and Kiss.
