Saskatoon resident and HUFF alumnus Zachary Lucky – along with Albertan-now-local Taylor Ackerman – makes his Carleton debut on Sunday, April 15th. Show time is 7:30 PM and tickets are $12.50 advanced or $15 at the door. This is a good one, folks…
Recently nominated for a 2017 Canadian Folk Music Award for Solo Artist of the Year, Zachary Lucky is unapologetically old-school country, armed with a husky baritone voice. He carries himself like a younger Richard Buckner or a heartier Doug Paisley and receives comparisons to songwriters like Gordon Lightfoot and Kris Kristofferson.
He sings of Canadian places and people as knowingly as he might the Rio Grande or Townes Van Zandt. It’s a relatable show on may levels and conjures universal feelings that have passed through our collective timelines. Already hailed as a master storyteller by outlets ranging from No Depression to The Globe & Mail, Lucky’s Everywhere A Man Can Be is his most powerful statement to date.
Taylor Ackerman was introduced to rhythm and music by his mother, a career dance teacher, training as a dancer himself and performing in theatres across western-Canada throughout his youth. He began playing music at age 6 and has been actively gigging since age 14 with a passion, and understanding of roots, rock, and blues music developing as a member of the bands Treeline, Toques & Beards, Hurtin’, Juxtaposers, and Scott Macleod. A gifted multi-instrumentalist Taylor studied classical music at the University of Lethbridge, specializing in percussion, and earned a Bachelor of Music in 2012.
His latest project, Taylor Ackerman’s Global Acid Reset, released their debut EP RUIN LUST on March 23, 2018
