The Bitterweed Draw is a six-piece collective comprised of equal parts urban and rural Alberta, much like Calgary itself. From diverse musical backgrounds including punk rock, heavy metal and High School Band class, the band has grown from its influences into a formidable combination of country, folk, and bluegrass, with a foot on the gas pedal when needed. The Bitterweed Draw has released a debut LP, toured across Canada and maintaink touring across Western Canada. The band is equally at home playing in front of craft beer swilling, bearded, and plaid-clad regulars of independent music venues, as they are on stage at The Brooks Hotel.
