Luky to perform at Roots Branches Concert Series

Mission Folk Music Festival is going country for it’s next show being held this weekend

The Mission Folk Music Festival is going country for the next show in its Roots & Branches Concert Series with singer-songwriter Kayla Luky performing on Saturday, Sept. 23 at 7:30 p.m. at The Railyard in Mission.

Luky hails from Grandview, a small farming community in western Manitoba, a quiet rural setting that fostered her authentic, honest songwriting style and affable stage presence. While her sound is alt-country, she has a poetic folk-roots songwriter’s way with a story. She has toured Canada a few times over and performed at Folk Alliance International, Folk Music Ontario, North by Northeast, Indie Week, Dauphin’s Countryfest, and Home Routes, among others.

Her latest album, Back to Dirt (2017) was produced by award-winning producer Murray Pulver (Doc Walker, Bros Landreth) and features 12 tracks soaked in alcohol, dirt and sorrow, honouring the roots of real country music.

She won Emerging Artist of the Year at the 2016 Manitoba Country Music Association awards, and has six nominations at the 2017 MCMA awards including Song and Album of the year and Roots Artist.

The concert is presented by the Mission Folk Music Festival as part of its Roots & Branches Concert Series sponsored by the District of Mission. Tickets for the concert are $20 and are available at by phoning 604-217-3442. Visit for songs and video.
