Zachary Lucky in Concert.
Friday 22 November 2019, 08:00pm - 11:00pm
The Exchange, 2431 8th Avenue, Regina
GrassRoots Regina is pleased to present country-folk musician, Zachary Lucky, in concert.
Lucky unapologetically infuses his music with an old-school country flavour, delivered in a soulful baritone voice.
For his Regina show he will be accompanied by Mitchell Thomson on upright bass and Kevin Neal on pedal steel.
Zachary Lucky is a Canadian songwriter, folk and country artist who started his career in Saskatoon and now resides in Orillia, Ontario. He is the grandson of Canadian country music legend Smilin’ Johnnie Lucky. Prior to starting his solo career in 2009, Lucky was a member of pop bands Tuxedo Mask and We Were Lovers. He has made a name for himself as one of the hardest working singer-songwriters to come out of Saskatchewan in recent years - often booking long, and potentially gruelling tours.
Born and raised in Saskatoon, Lucky finds himself in the company of other Saskatchewan artists like Colter Wall, Deep Dark Woods, and Kacy & Clayton. Why has this rugged Canadian province produced such great roots music? Lucky thinks some of it must come down to the prairie landscape and its people. “There’s something about the Canadian Midwestern people,” he says in explanation. “There’s a strong work ethic, and a kindness to them that you don’t find anywhere else. There’s also something about being in the middle of nowhere, beneath that vast prairie sky, watching it come alive with colour as the sun dips below the horizon.”
Lucky released his first full-length album, Come and Gone, in August of 2010. Since then, he has released four additional albums: Saskatchewan (2012), The Ballad of Losing You (2013), Everywhere a Man Can Be (2016) and Midwestern in October of this year.
