Calgary Alberta - Fallentimber, southern Alberta's award winning and picturesque farm style meadery is getting set to host an evening of events this August 19th including meadery tours & tastings, lawn games, dinner by Calgary's top billed restaurant, Double Zero Pizza and a festival style concert under the stars with one of Alberta’s most gifted songwriter musicians, WiL (www.ibreakstrings.com
As a member of the cottage winery industry in Alberta, Fallentimber Meadery crafts an array of meads one batch at a time using honey from The Ryan Family farm. Blake Ryan started the family business when he purchased the farm and established his first hives. Kevin Ryan carried on the profession of beekeeping and continues to do so with Fallentimber Meadery. Seasonal meads are available at select liquor stores, farmers markets and restaurants throughout the region Fallentimber is nestled in Water Valley, just 81 kms west of Calgary.
Alberta raised singer/songwriter WiL has been crafting his own eclectic array of roots inspired rock since making the leap from playing covers in Calgary bars in the 90's. In 2012, his song 'Roam
' became the flagship anthem to Travel Alberta’s stunning media campaign called 'Remember to Breathe
'. The fact that WiL grew up in Calgary, right in the heart of southern Alberta may have lent itself to his fierce connection with the campaign's visually stunning images. His music can also be heard in media campaigns for Travel Saskatchewan, The Calgary Stampede, Fly Over Canada/America and ‘A Miracle On Christmas Lake’ yet his fans know him for his electrically charged, roller coaster ride of a guitar-string-breaking live show. Performing with his band mates, drummer Keith Gallant and keyboard player/vocalist Lena Birtwistle, the trio exudes a mix of bold chemistry and undeniable musicianship that has critics and fans buzzing. A recent live review states "I had heard about
his live performance for years and it didn’t even compare to what it was actually like watching him"... it almost didn’t seem possible that he was making those sounds come from an acoustic guitar...The guy was on fire" - Songs in the Valley
As such he has had the honour of sharing the stage with the likes of Burton Cummings, Jann Arden, Feist, Ray LaMontagne, Matthew Good, The Tragically Hip and most recently, with a coveted opening spot for the legendary Mavis Staples.
What better pairing could there be than these two bold spirited collectives merging to bring you a truly eclectic and unique Albertan experience like no other?
Meadery tours/tastings, lawn games, dinner by Double Zero/two free drinks, concert and camping are included in the tickets price.
