Zachary Lucky with Ben Arsenault in the WISE Lounge
October 4, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Live at the WISE in the Lounge is proud to present Saskatchewan’s ownZachary Lucky on his Western Tour and Ben Arsenault home town hero fromReal Ponchos who will be releasing his solo 7’ album at the WISE Lounge on October 4th.
Zachary Lucky is unapologetically old-school country, armed with a husky, baritone voice – He carries himself like a younger Richard Buckner or a heartier Doug Paisley and receives comparisons to songwriters such as Gordan Lightfoot and Kris Kristofferson. He sings of Canadian places and people as knowingly as he might Townes Van Zandt or the Rio Grande. It’s a relatable show on many levels, and conjures universal feelings that have passed through our collective timelines. Already hailed as a master storyteller by outlets ranging from No Depression to The Globe and Mail!, Lucky’s Everywhere A Man Can Be is his most powerful statement to date

In a lonesome, scraggly drawl, Ben Arsenault sings songs about the road he’s travelled and the characters he’s spent time with along the way. Drawing on experiences from relationships of which he’s had the pleasure and pain of sharing, Ben’s songwriting takes a laid-back look into the conundrum that is human existence. Inspired by the wild mountains and waters of his BC home, and all the open country from Canada to Mexico, his music makes a good driving companion as you’re going down the road. His self-titled debut solo album, featuring Ben on acoustic guitar, harmonica and vocals, is a tribute to the likes of Townes Van Zandt, Merle Haggard and all the great singer/songwriters of country music.
