Leth­bridge’s own Leeroy Stag­ger un­plugged at the Em­press The­atre this fall

Prairie Post (West Edition) - - Alberta -

Roots rocker Leeroy Stag­ger is bring­ing a pared-down ver­sion of his show with The Re­bel­tone Sound to the Em­press The­atre with his Camp­fire Di­aries tour on Fri­day, Sept. 21 at 7:30 p.m.

Stag­ger, who fuses roots, rock and pop mu­sic, is widely con­sid­ered one of Canada’s best con­tem­po­rary singer/song­writ­ers. Since first mak­ing his mark on the Cana­dian in­de­pen­dent mu­sic scene in the early 2000s, Stag­ger has toured the world, both on his own and with the likes of Steve Earle, Pix­ies, Mod­est Mouse and Evan Dando.

Stag­ger’s per­for­mances and song writ­ing have won him 102.7 The Peak’s highly com­pet­i­tive Per­for­mance Project in 2015 and the Cal­gary Folk Fes­ti­val Pros and Prose con­test in 2014.

His al­bum Ra­di­ant Land was a nom­i­nee for the 2013 Western Cana­dian Mu­sic Award for Roots Solo Record­ing of the Year.

In April 2017, Leth­bridge-based Stag­ger added to his large body of work with the re­lease of his eleventh al­bum, Love Ver­sus. His songs have ap­peared in such tele­vi­sion shows as Grey’s Anatomy and Sons of An­ar­chy.

Tick­ets to see Leeroy Stag­ger and The Re­bel­tone Sound are only $28 and avail­able at Ma­cleodEm­press.com or by call­ing 403-553-4404.
