Finding your way can often be a rocky road.

Some stumble through life, while others blaze trails. Brett Wildeman has been slowly but steadily crafting his raw folk sound over the past few years while performing in intimate venues throughout British Columbia and Alberta.

A Rocky Road Tour is an ode to the fossil fuel-dependent path Canada’s federal and provincial governments are leading residents down, as the Joint Review Panel has given the green light to contentious Northern Gateway Pipeline, said Wildeman.

2013 was a year of success and artistic growth for the musician, with more than 40 tour dates, the release of Mother Earth, and a 700-km carbon-neutral cycle-tour of coastal B.C.

In 2014, Wildeman has turned his focus to the release of a forthcoming EP and carbon-neutral touring efforts.

Joined by guest artist Krystle Aspenlind, Wildeman will begin his tour in Langley, at the Watershed Arts Café in Walnut Grove on March 7, before heading into the B.C. Interior, with shows scheduled in Rossland, Nelson, Fernie, Field, Golden and Kamloops.

Watershed Arts Café is located at 20349 88 Ave.

Admission to the concert is by donation. The performance begins at 8 p.m.
