Profile Last Updated: August 22, 2008
Nickelodeon Music is a non-profit folk music club founded in Calgary in 1980 with a vision to draw touring folk musicians to the city. Operating out of a 193-seat capacity community centre in the northwest, Nickelodeon schedules a 12-concert season featuring new and established folk artists that are mainly (but not exclusively) from Canada. Nickelodeon is fully operated by volunteers, and receives sponsorship and support from the Alberta Foundation, as well as Calgary Arts Development.
Sample of Performances
A night out at “The Nick” includes an opening act, as well as two 40-minute sets by the featured performers. In the past, the Nickelodeon played host to such classics as: Ani DiFranco, The Mollys, Laura Love, Fred Eaglesmith, The Bills, Connie Kaldor, Lynn Miles, Stephen Fearing, and many more great artists. In the coming season the Nick is bringing back some old favourites, and introducing new artists, including: The Pan Canadian New Folk Ensemble (Kim Barlow, Old Man Luedecke & Christine Fellows), Matt Andersen, the Santa Cruz River Band, Po’ Girl, and John Wort Hannam.
When and Where
The Nickelodeon operates from late September to early April each year. All concerts are held at the Crescent Heights Community Hall in northwest Calgary. Tickets can be purchased two weeks prior to each concert at: Highlander Wine & Spirits, online at “The Nick’s” website, or at the door (first come, first serve). Season tickets are also available, but they tend to sell out early!
Note : they accept visa and mastercard online.
