The Medicine Hat Folk Music Club's Tongue on the Post Folk Music Festival ends with our famous Headlining Gala Saturday evening.

Starting your evening is the ever talented and familiar sounds of local legend Derek Hintz. This time he's bringing some of his friends from all over to get everyone warmed up and excited for the amazing evening.

Then comes the traveling sensation DRFTR, joining us from Ontario. DRFTR is the one-man creation of singer/songwriter Oscar Anderson-Shortt. His soaring, soulful voice is tinged with R&B his songs honest, intimate and from the heart. His music is best described as feely folk- all about emotion. From lost love to sharp political commentary with all life’s gritty and joyous bits in between, DRFTR taps into our common emotional landscape in a deeply thoughtful, melodic way.

Closing out the evening performances will be the iconic and legendary Maria Dunn. A true preserver of the spirit of folk music, twice Juno-nominated Maria Dunn is often compared to Woody Guthrie for her keen social awareness and her melodic, unvarnished songs about the lives of working men and women.

Tickets available on Eventbrite.
