Lacombe’s Track on 2 introduces Songwriter Series

Local, regional and national recording artists to perform in intimate setting

Lacombe — already a bustling centre of live entertainment — has another venue hosting live music going forward.

The Track on 2 and Trixstar are pleased to announce their new partnership. Trixstar has been contracted to act as an entertainment consultant for the Track on 2 Horse Racing and Event Centre in Lacombe, Alberta.

“We are thrilled to bring the expertise and professionalism of Trixstar on board. They share the same passion for live events as we do and see the full potential of our property as more than just a race track. They also understand our commitment to the community and will help foster that partnership.”, says Kurt Belich co-owner of The Track on 2.

“Kurt, Kyla and Ross are exceptional leaders in their industry. We are excited at the opportunity to work with their talented team and create an entertainment destination at The Track on 2. Their vision will no doubt enhance the community and region.”, says Trixstar’s Chris Melnychuk.

Work will begin immediately on planning for a variety of events to fill the 2020 calendar year.

Beginning January 15, 2020 The Track on 2 Event Centre will host a weekly Songwriters Series featuring local, regional and national level artists. Creating a special experience for both artists and fans, the listening room atmosphere will host 3-4 artists each week with a focus on the craft of songwriting and the stories that go along with it.

“Songwriting is all about telling a story, and revealing the inspiration behind that story. No only do The Track on 2 Stillhouse Songwriter Sessions offer a unique venue and experience for this to happen, it starts the process about the venue creating its own story by giving artists of all levels a place to be part of building something special,” Chris Melnychuk of Trixtrar said.

The Track on 2 stillhouse Songwriter sessions will begin on Jan. 15 with Clayton Bellamy, Dan Davidson, & Maddison Krebs, followed by a show on Jan. 22 featuring Ryan Langlois & James Murdoch.

Set in an intimate listening room atmosphere that will create a unique experience for both artists and all those attending, The Track on 2 Stillhouse Sessions will focus on the craft of songwriting and the stories that go along with it.

The listening room atmosphere will be a unique experience in Lacombe and while the performers love the audience to applaud, laugh and often sing along, too much conversation during the show distracts other listeners and is disrespectful to the songwriters who form the backbone of this very special evening.

“We felt that there was a need for a live music venue in Central Alberta. We wanted to provide an exceptional experience at an affordable price and provide opportunities for local, regional and national songwriters to share their talent,” Kyla Belich, director of marketing & events for the Track on 2, said

Plans are also in the works for various outdoor concerts, comprehensive race day programming and various other community events.
