February 9 - 12, 2023 marks the 8th iteration of the Calgary Folk Music Festival’s annual winter ritual Block Heater, powered by ATB.

Block Heater will recharge your soul with shows for every taste and vibe, filled with independent artists from our backyard and the globe. Choose your own adventure at diverse Inglewood and downtown venues. On Sunday February 12, the beautiful Jack Singer Concert Hall houses the Festival, with two separate events.

Evening (doors at 6:30pm, Duet Stage at 6:40pm, first act at 7:30pm)
This evening show is 6:30 - 10:45 pm, with doors at 6:30 pm. Two American iconic alternative roots groups – The Jayhawks, who blend impeccable playing and honeyed harmonies and Heartless Bastards who entrance with sly hooks, cacophonic crescendos and musical digressions – co-headline. Oji-Cree powerhouse Aysanabee opens with his driving melodic landscapes. Amy Nelson’s colourful brand of old fashioned-meets-new bluegrass will be the pre-show entertainment on the Duet Stage.
