Alberta Spotlight: Mariel Buckley with Mark Times

The National Music Centre is pleased to present alt-country act Mariel Buckley with country singer-songwriter Mark Times as part of the Alberta Spotlight series.

Few performers combine the lyrical heartfelt authenticity of classic country music with a steely-eyed intensity that compels an audience’s attention like Calgary’s Mariel Buckley. Amidst a sea of neon-Nashville superstars, Buckley offers a crunchy, roots alternative.

Mark Times is a songsmith at work. He’s a novelist with a Gibson, plucking stories from the windswept prairies and humming to the slow clack of typewriter keys. His work is the product of raw emotion filtered through a thoughtful process, distilling songs that are just the right amount of head and heart.

Special thanks to the Viewpoint Foundation for their support. Thanks also to media partners Leading Outdoor, BeatRoute and theYYScene.
