With two albums and a third on the way, we're off again October 6th to 28th for another coast to coast tour with dates all across the country. And we need your help getting there! We've set up this fundraiser for travel expenses and gas as we tour from Vancouver, B.C. to Cape Breton, NS. Check our social media for tour dates and venues; a full listing will be posted soon!

Thank you to every one who has come to a show or bought a cd and supported us with every project. We are SO thankful for your continued support as we head out, and in return we've setup some great incentives for helping us on our way.

Dont forget to check our website and social media here for updates as we tour!


Rotary Park is a Calgary based band playing a special brand of harmony driven, alternative bluegrass. The combination of ambient folk music, powerful vocal harmonies and banjo ripping bluegrass brings a unique brand of Canadian music to the table.

It was in 2011 when Rotary Park was formed by long time friends and fellow buskers. The band began playing live around the city of Calgary, while working on material for a full length album. October 2012 marked the start of recording as the boys headed into studio to cut their debut album. After over a year of production they released the self titled record on March 28 2014. With a fresh album and big ambitions Rotary Park hit the road on their first tour across Canada. Since then,

After a very successful tour the quintet got right back into the grind writing and recording "Be", Rotary Park's sophomore album released on July 10, 2015. Another  coast to coast tour including notable stops at South Country Fair and the Market Collective Locals Stage at the Calgary Folk Music Festival.

In early April 2016 Rotary Park performed at JUNOfest to a sold out crowd at the Palomino Smokehouse.

In September of 2016 our dear friend and mandolinist, Colton Daigle left the band to pursue his other career endeavors and we wish him the best in all he does. With his departure, we welcome Nicki McRae to our lineup, a long-time friend and session player to round out the vocals, mandolin and percussion. Look out for her at our future shows and events.

The future has never looked brighter for this group of fine gentlemen and lady. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for what Rotary Park has in store.
