Information
Request for Decision Summary
In keeping with Policy CP-1006-18, Cultural Performances for Council, this performance will recognize the folk-country blend music artist, Mark Times.
Proposed Motion
That Mark Times be welcomed and thanked by Council for his musical performance.
Background/Analysis
The Cultural Performances for Council Policy was developed to acknowledge and recognize individuals or groups in the performing arts with performances before Council. Performers include, but are not limited to music, live art, dance and poetry. 

Hailing from our community, and playing in bars since he was seventeen, Mark Times is a songsmith at work. Mixing time-tested sounds with lyrics distilled from everyday life, his folk-country blend is garnering attention across the Canadian music scene. His self-titled EP, released in November of 2017, earned him nominations for the singer/songwriter and roots/folk recording of the year at the Edmonton Music Awards, while the track “Saskatchewine” received an honorable mention in the Canadian Songwriting Competition. Bringing his brand of neo-traditional country to stages from coast to coast, Times is moving Canadian country forward while keeping his rearview mirror fixed on tradition.

Mark Times is currently in Alberta Music’s Project Wild Artist Development program and has the chance to earn up to $100,000 to further his career when they announce the winner in Calgary this November.
