Includes bibliographical references and index."Sonic booms: making music in an oil town is the story of the roots and country music scene in Calgary. Over the last twenty years, it has grown in response to the city's vast wealth, yet remains under the radar for the rest of Canada. A city that produced some of our country's greatest musicians - K. D. Lang, Ian Tyson, Feist, and Jann Arden, to name a few - is home to a community of performers who both embrace and resist stereotypes imposed on the city. Drawing on the author's twenty years in the scene, Sonic booms offers a snapshot of the vibrant musical community of Calgary."--Provided by publisher.
