Meet the Outlaws of Canadian Country. The Canaries love to hoot, holler and raise a ruckus with an instrument in one hand and a beer in the other. They don't just play the party. They are the party.
The Coal Mine Canaries are a 5-piece country band from Calgary, Alberta with a big sound to match the crowd. With each band member bringing a unique musical background to the table, the resulting effect is a fusion of stylistic elements that pay deep homage to their Alberta country roots in a meaningful and imaginative way. Mixing that 90's country nostalgia with your favourite foot-stompin' classics, the Canaries use lap steel guitar and banjo are to provoke the audience in unexpected ways. The Coal Mine Canaries tease their listeners with a high-contrast sonic spectrum that showcases their multiple vocalists, strong musicianship and most importantly their entertaining stage presence and undeniable comradery and chemistry as a band. Infusing traditional country with blues and folk nuances, the Canaries are always concocting new flavours to add to the country music genre and create one-of-a-kind tunes.
