Warm up at Tongue on the Post
Burrr. January can be so cold. It’s impossible to just chill (yes, pun intended) and listen to some sweet tunes when it’s so dang cold. Tongue on the Post Music Festival feels your pain and has come to the rescue. So, drop the skis and snowboard for six days and come in to warm up. From Jan. 22 through Jan. 27, Medalta Potteries and a bunch of cafés and restaurants throughout Medicine Hat bring you in from the cold with live music put on by some of the finest artists around.
Headlining the event is The Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra who leave audiences spellbound with their talented show, rich in storytelling accompanied by strings and accordions. No toe is left untapped when they hit the stage.
Other entertainers include the hillbilly trio of Boots & The Hoots from Calgary, the Vaudevillian act of Blackberry Wood and Their Circus Sideshow from Vancouver, Poor Nameless Boy (a talented musician named Joel Henderson), the talented duet of Chicken-Like Birds and Medicine Hat’s own, Kyle Church.
Different shows highlight the week of activities. Check out the artists in the intimate setting of a café at Verve Café and Zucchini Blossom. But make sure you find time to visit Medalta Potteries for some shows that are completely influenced by the surroundings. When was the last time you sat and listened to a musician strum in a kiln? Or danced in a pottery room?
Crazy? No. Acoustically interesting? Totally.
The best part is you can purchase passes for the afternoon side stages and the closing concert, an event and special features like the Supper and Song in Medalta Potteries on Jan. 25. Tequila Mockingbird will entertain while you dine on some of the best culinary delights found in Medicine Hat.
