We make no secret of our love for Mariel Buckley.
She is one of this region’s best and brightest singer-songwriters — a winner on every level.
Now it’s official. This past weekend, Bucks earned herself top prize in the Project Wild artist development competition, which came with a sweet cheque for $100,953 to help further her career.
And on Thursday, Dec. 12 Buckley will take something of a victory lap when she wraps up the National Music Centre’s Alberta Spotlight fall series with a show at Studio Bell.
It should be a helluva night with the artist being backed by a seven-piece band and her promising it will be her last local show for the next little while.
We want you to go. As proud media sponsors of the Spotlight series, we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky person. To enter to win, head to our Facebook page, find this post, and comment underneath it tagging a friend who you think could use a night out. We’ll pick a winner at random and let them know by the end of the day Wednesday via direct message.
Good luck. And please keep supporting local artists.
