Canada’s Best Indie Artists Play at Communitea Café

Music has always been one of Canada’s most valuable exports. That’s the case today more than it has ever been. Canada boasts a thriving independent music scene rich with talent. Luckily for anyone visiting Canmore, local music venue Communitea Café regularly plays host to some of the country’s rising independent music stars.

Communitea isn’t what you’d normally expect a music venue to look like. For starters they’re not a theatre or a pub but a coffee shop. Sounds strange, but once the latte-sipping crowd has dissipated for the day, Communitea transforms into a really unique live music venue, and a surprisingly spacious one at that. The intimate performances are unlike any concert you’ve been to, allowing the audience to really focus on the performer and allowing the performing to connect with the crowd in a way that simply isn’t possible in a larger or louder venue.

The lineup of upcoming shows at Communitea is always jam packed. Notable upcoming shows include:

Jordan Klassen & Layten Kramer | May 29th
Jordan Klassen and Layten Kramer craft powerfully personal songs delivered with a rawness and soulfulness that belies their unassuming appearance. They sing of the struggles of growing up in your twenties in a world that’s not always kind to its up-and-coming generation.  

Library Voices | June 17th
Regina, Saskatchewan based indie rockers Library Voices have been generating quite a bit of buzz south of the border, garnering praise from such illustrious publications as the New Yorker and Spin. Their intelligent lyrics and catchy melodies shine through brightly in their live performances, which often include a cast of nearly a dozen musicians including horns and accordion.

If you’re staying with us at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Pocaterra Inn & Suites, be sure to check out a show at Communitea. We look forward to being your hotel of choice the next time your travels bring you to Canmore, AB!
