After exploring the musical mosaic of the country with Canada Day at Studio Bell, cap off your day of discovery with brews, bites, and bands at the legendary King Eddy across the street. No cover!

Catch six-piece honky tonk country and roots dynamos Tom Phillips and The D.T.s, country artist Robert Adam, alt-roots band Cold Little Crow, and bilingual indie/folk-rock duo Post Script on the Eddy's main floor, and old-time banjoist and songwriter Amy Nelson, indie-folk singer-songwriter Bennett Mitchell, country artist Mariya Stokes, and country duo The Rural Routes on the rooftop.

King Eddy opens at 11:00 am. Rooftop opens at 12:30 pm.

About the King Eddy:

Established in 1905, the King Edward Hotel was Calgary’s second oldest hotel and the longest operating bar and hotel when it closed in 2004. After over a decade of silence, the revitalized King Eddy re-opened as a live music venue, restaurant, and bar in 2018 as part of the National Music Centre development. Today, the Eddy continues as a cornerstone of music, community, and culture, building on its storied musical legacy.
