MADDIE STORVOLD November 16, 2018
Raised in Dubai, Maddie Storvold grew up travelling and playing music all over the world and is now an enthusiastic member of the Edmonton music community. With emotive finger picking, and a honeyed, impassioned voice, her music seeks to tell a story, to challenge us, and to touch a fragile part of the human spirit.
Storvold immersed herself in the Edmonton’s vibrant arts community and recorded her debut LP "The Old Brag of My Heart" in bathrooms, basements, tree houses, and kitchens, seeking to capture an authentic and unedited experience of each unique song. The record received critical recognition and acclaim in the summer of 2017, charting Top 10 on folk/roots radio across Canada.
She has since spent her summers touring and playing festivals and venues, including the Edmonton Folk Fest, Canmore Folk Fest, and Tiny Lights. After receiving funding from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, the young folk singer will be releasing her second full length album in Spring 2019.

ABOUT THE CAVE
If you’ve ever climbed to the peak of a mountain or scrambled a ridge for stunning views of the Canadian Rockies, but never experienced what’s inside the mountain, you’re missing out.
Canmore Cave Tours has been caving and exploring in Canmore, Alberta for over 25 years now. Their guides (and even owners) go deep into the cave at every chance they get. While taking a tour only gifts you a glimpse at the inner workings of Grotto Mountain, there are several kilometers of caves that are still being discovered.
Enter, Rat’s Nest Cave. The only way to experience it is through a tour - its protected status allows responsible tourism guided by the experts at Canmore Cave Tours. It also means that you’re in good and knowledgeable hands. So, whether you’re an experienced spelunker or new to the sport, you’re sure to enjoy yourself – just pick the tour that matches your skill level.
