Local Folk King Tyler Butler Shares F&M on Capital City Records

The sea may be in his blood but the prairies are in his heart. Tyler Butler was born on Canada’s east coast but taps into his Alberta roots. Tyler seeks to understand what makes a true folk musician, scouring Canada to find those tireless troubadours who craft stories of the land, in turn creating place through their song. In this podcast, Tyler shares one of his favourite F&M songs on Capital City Records Podcast. CLICK HERE.

Cool Fact: Tyler has been hired on occasion to sing F&M lullabies while on vacation near the sea. 

The Capital City Records podcast delivers a new song by Edmonton artists, as selected by taste-makers here at home and abroad. The podcast is produced by CKUA, with help from the Edmonton Public Library.
