Singer, songwriter, and boogie-woogie pianist Eden Brent comes to Calgary with her spontaneous and electric style of juke-joint blues. A Mississippi girl through and through, Brent’s love for the piano started at the young age of 5. She was later mentored by the late, great Delta piano player Abie "Boogaloo" Ames who affectionately dubbed her Little Boogaloo.
Brent’s rollicking original sound has earned her eleven blues music award nominations with four wins including Acoustic Artist of The Year and Acoustic Album of The Year by the Blues Foundation. A powerhouse of the keys, Brent’s style borrows from everything from blues and jazz, to pop and rock‘n’roll for a sound that’s irresistibly fresh.

Completed in 1994 the Engineered Air Theatre carries on the tradition of having a theatre located in its exact location for over 100 years, even incorporating rescued decorative elements from the old Empress Theatre into both its theatre and lobby design. In the summer of 2016, the Engineered Air had a face lift with the comfier chairs and updated décor.
