Music is coming back to the King Eddy.

For the first time in several years, blues, country and bluegrass will fill the building once again.

President and CEO with the National Music Centre Andrew Mosker said people will remember the King Eddy as the place to be in the 1960s through the 1990s.

“It welcomed all walks of Calgarian life,” he stated. “From the police chief to a CEO, to the mayor to bikers and everything in between. That was, I think, what was really special about it; it welcomed all.”

Bands will play during Stampede from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 a.m.

Tickets for the evening shows are $20 dollars each, available for pre-sale online.
