Mariel Buckley

Thursday, November 18

 “If you’re longing for the pensive tearjerkers of classic country music in the modern world, look no further than singer-songwriter Mariel Buckley. With the soul of Emmylou and the keen eye of Springsteen, Buckley is making a name for herself.”  — Bobbie Jean Sawyer, Wide Open Country. 


Doubling down on grit and authenticity, Mariel Buckley has planted her flag firmly as a songwriter who’s in it for the long haul. The glow of mainstream music holds no appeal for this neo-noir highway star, and she makes no apologies for her stark candor and delivery. As one of Canada’s busiest touring acts, she continues to charm new listeners both with her sharp perspective and tender melodies.
