Wildflower CD release

August 16 - Country duo Wildflower release their new CD at Wine-OHs. $15 at the door

In the varied landscape that is today’s Canadian music scene, Wildflower stands out bringing a unique blend of folk-roots & rock to their own brand of country music. As with most musical journeys, Wildflower started with a song. Singer-songwriters Jennie Clarke (vocals) and Dean Selby (vocals, guitar) first met in a Calgary recording studio in 2012, and an instant chemistry and creative connection emerged.
