Calgary Folk Music Festival 2018

Story by Jesse Shire. Photo by Will Geier.

The Corey Hotline: “Please Hold” album release

Story and photos by Sara Kuefler. You know you are in for an enjoyable listening experience when you put on an album and the first song is a romantically toned ode to a motorhome, in which the line “you’re my little death machine” is featured, as in “Lady Pistol.” Not a lyric that the mothers of the band members were particular fans of.
