Edmonton's longest running winter festival!

Joe Nolan

December 20, 2022

Joe Nolan, named by The Globe and Mail as “An Americana wunderkind to look out for,” shares Lost Verses, his seventh album – and fifth in just five years. During Nolan’s illustrious career he’s recorded with JUNO award winning producers Colin Linden and Hawksley Workman, has also won several Cobalt Prize songwriting awards at the Maple Blues Awards, earned a handful of BreakOut West nominations, and got a Canadian Folk Music Award nod for Contemporary Roots Album Of The Year for his 2020 release, Drifters. A typical year will see him playing anywhere from 150 – 200 shows; he is a true workhorse and road dog. Often framed as a lone wolf, Nolan self-produced Lost Verses, but called upon some friends to elevate the album. Key tracks feature Sarah Pagé on harp (Leif Vollebekk, The Barr Brothers), LA’s COULOU on trumpet and sister Nataya Nolan on background vocals.
