Tongue on the Post

Tongue on the Post Festival celebrates 12 seasons of excellent music – and no frozen tongues.

It’s the middle of winter but there is a beat in the air, drawing you towards the old pottery factory in the heart of Medicine Hat. It’s the annual Tongue on the Post Music Festival where it may be chilly on the outside but inside the historic Medalta Potteries the music heats up the old kilns and festival-goers. 

Get a preview of this year's festivities here.

Through the week of Jan. 22 to 27, the Medicine Hat Folk Music Club will host over 40 shows at Medalta Potteries and throughout the city at various coffee shops, pubs and bistros. Music lovers are encouraged to buy tickets soon for the annual Supper and Song Gala highlighted this year with The Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra, the Singer Songwriter Event and the main event, the Saturday Evening Gala on January 27th.

Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra

Playing on the title of a classic novel, Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra could easily be described as storytellers. The musicians weave tales and harmonies together with an eclectic group of instruments. Listening to this group of troubadours will take you to faraway places and back again.
