Few performers combine the lyrical heartfelt authenticity of classic country music with a steely-eyed intensity that compels an audience’s attention like Calgary’s Mariel Buckley. It’s the kind of sound many musicians take years searching for. She depicts the trials of everyday life with unflinching honesty, painting poetically plainspoken highs and lows, long nights and hard days, all filtered through her wry, no-bullshit perspective.
No Depression hails her as, “a new Loretta Lynn, speaking her mind… Throw in a little Townes Van Zandt mixed with Joan Jett and you’ve got an artist who’s going to grab a lot of people’s attention.”
Secret Streetcar Show concerts are truly one-of-a-kind in a beautiful intimate venue. To have high quality live music shows on a 105-year old streetcar, on a 105-year old bridge over a majestic river, at sunset is – as far as we know – done nowhere else in the world.
Who is it for?

Our trip starts at 7pm sharp, so please arrive by 6.45. Meet at the back of the Arts Barns (10330 84 Avenue), by the tracks. The streetcar will take us to the high-level bridge and stop right in the middle of it for a first set of music and wonderful views of the grand North Saskatchewan and the river valley. After crossing the river and a little break we return for a second stop on the bridge with more music.
