ABOUT

Calling Lead Guitar Players ~ The StainGlass Social in Calgary is Auditioning for the House Band

The StainGlass Social is a grassroots, community-focused start-up in Calgary, Alberta – Canada's Capital of Country Music. Founded in the songwriter tradition of Nashville, our vision is to become a cultural destination of folk and country music performance right here in Calgary.

Bringing together the intimacy of an underground club with the professionalism of a theatre stage, The StainGlass Social provides an opportunity to turn down the noise and listen in to the music.

The intent of our show is to give country folk musicians, and their fans, a chance to get away from the bar scene and share in their love of a great song.

An evening on our stage will consist of 3-4 headline artists, backed by our professional house band. Opportunities to engage with fans and grow relationships within the artist community will be an integral piece of the evening as we believe community is truly what music is all about.

Our focus is on Original Folk and Country Performing Artists and Songwriters.

This is a community idea about bringing people together – the question is: how many branches of the Calgary community can we bring in on one idea?

The House Band is an integral piece in bringing a songwriter’s work to life. There will be an hour or so of music to learn – headline artists are getting a 20-25 minute slot and we are planning on having 4 of them in an evening. The genre is folk and country. Artists will submit their songs to the band in advance. The idea is to make this a recurring show, the timeline for now is once every three months. There will be a guaranteed fee, paid following the show.

More details about the project, and an application form, can be found on www.sgsocial.ca. Questions can be directed to connect@sgsocial.ca

We have some minimum requirements for Lead Guitar players. If you are interested in the project, please apply and the details of the audition will be sent to you.
