For the third year in a row, Beaverlodge is a stop in the Untapped Alberta Concert Series. The performers and the community put on one heck of a show every time, and this year is sure to build off past success.

This year’s line-up features young country artists that are really going places. Katie Mission, the Command Sisters, and Jamie Arsenault are going to get the toes tapping and the hips swaying in Beaverlodge Community Centre April 14th. Doors open at 6:30. All proceeds from the concert will go to the Beaverlodge/West Country pool.

Katie Mission

When she was just 6 years old, Katie Mission discovered that she loved to sing country music after performing a rendition of “Grandpa Tell Me ‘Bout the Good Old Days” by the Judds for her Gido’s 75th birthday. From that moment on, she thrived on performing for family and friends and began taking classical singing and piano lessons.

Today, Katie is about to embark on her country music dream with the release of her debut, self-penned single, “When’s the Wedding.” She will hit the road this summer, visiting radio stations across the country with her record label Royalty Records. Her soon-to-be-released album was produced by CCMA’s 2006 Producer of the Year winner Gil Grand and hot Nashville tunesmith Anthony Smith.

The Command Sisters

The Command Sisters are young singer/songwriter multi-instrumentalists with a unique sound, hair-raising harmonies, and a captivating live show have been stealing hearts from Alberta to Tennessee.

The girls have had whirlwind year since they were first overheard singing at their great-grandma's table. Sisters Charlotte and Sarah went to Nashville to play eight shows, including a one-hour all-original show at the famed Blue Bird Cafe. The girls performed at CBC's nationally televised benefit concert for the victims of the Slave Lake fire (alongside Johnny Reid, George Canyon, Emerson Drive, and others). Then they took to the road this past summer spending time on the Edmonton Folk Fest and Canmore Folk Fest (U22), Lilac Fest, Lake Chestermere Water Festival, and St. Albert Children's Festival stages. Charlotte and Sarah were also privileged to represent Alberta's youth at a private reception to meet Prince William and Kate last July in Calgary.

The girls are also committed to helping out and entertaining many of Alberta’s great causes like singing for the children of Stollery Hospital, Ronald McDonald House, and Pilgrim's Hospice, as well as fundraisers such as JapanAid, The Huntington Retreat, La Salle Shelter, and Kid's Help Phone.
