“Lucky’s songs have lived lifetimes. They sit you down, tell you their stories and heighten your senses to the wonders of nature, love and self.”
– No Depression
Everyone knows prairie boys are the salt of the earth, and Saskatoon-bred Zachary Lucky is a prime example. Hard-working, long-touring, and fine-crafting, Lucky creates beautiful music with a deeply intimate and emotive quality. Lucky is now based in Ontario, but he’s still got the open plains in his soul and his songs.
Zachary Lucky is a gifted singer-songwriter with the of old school tradition—echoes of Gordon Lightfoot, sparks of Townes Van Zandt, a tip of the hat to Hank Snow—blended with a contemporary, fresh flair that is all his own. Zachary works with guitar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, pedal steel, and his rich baritone voice to carve new emblems into the old wood of folk, country, and roots music.
Though he’s not even thirty years old, Lucky has been making music for well over a decade, and just released his latest album Everywhere a Man Can Be this past October. He’s received glowing press from Exclaim!, NOW Toronto, The Globe and Mail, and The Vancouver Sun, among others, and has toured the heck out of this big ol’ country (and beyond, into the USA), leaving his audiences sighing and wishing for more. He’s bringing his old fashioned charm on up to DCMF this summer, so you can see, hear, and experience the magic of Zachary Lucky for yourself.
