Rising country music star Brayden King is adding Lethbridge College to his list of tour stops this fall. He’s set to close out a day of free fun and entertainment as this year’s Coulee Fest headliner.
King, who is originally from Weyburn, Sask., and now calls Lethbridge home, is quickly making a name for himself across the prairies. Originally inspired by rock and roll, King describes his sound as “riding on the edgy side of country.” He’s played hundreds of shows across western Canada over the past year, including the Calgary Stampede, and he is in the lineup for next month’s Country Thunder Calgary music festival.
“Brayden King is known for his high-energy, crowd-engaging performances, which is the perfect way to cap off Coulee Fest,” says Stephanie Savage, Alumni and Engagement manager at Lethbridge College. “We are fortunate to have another solid entertainment lineup this year, and we are looking forward to an afternoon of great music and fun with the community. Everyone is invited, so come celebrate with us!”
Coulee Fest live entertainment begins at 1:15 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16, with the Band Formerly Known as Karen, Lewis and Pam, who are known for their upbeat, interactive sets for the young and young at heart. Alli Price will take the stage at 2:15 p.m. to share her take on some familiar classics, and up-and-coming guitarist and country singer-songwriter Eric Braun will be in the spotlight at 3 p.m. Calgary-based rock band Waterfront will perform at 4 p.m., followed by Peach Panic, who will deliver high-energy indie rock at 5 p.m. King will hit the stage at 6 p.m. for a full one-hour set to wrap up the day’s entertainment.
The live stage is just part of an afternoon full of activities that includes family entertainment like carriage rides, caricatures, crafts, virtual reality activities, and a show and shine as well as food trucks, the Hudsons Canada’s Pub beer gardens, Prairie Made Market and more.
