About this Walk

This walk will be of interest to those who love music of all sorts, who may be interested in some of Calgarys music history and who would like to explore the role of music and the arts in the heart of inner city life.  From small cafe’s to Canada’s national museum of music to the Calgary home of Alberta’s arts radio voice, you will have a chance to have a conversation with one of the founders of the Music Mile, Calgarys music district since 2014.  Join me in the Fort Calgary parking lot…singing on the way is optional!!
