Taking the stage as our host at TEDxYYC 2017… Michael Bernard Fitzgerald! A touring troubadour and artist with an acoustic folk sound.

Michael Bernard Fitzgerald (MBF) is a singer, songwriter and proud Calgarian. Most of MBF’s time is spent on stage playing clubs, theatres and festivals across North America – including Bonaroo, Firefly Festival and the Calgary Folk Music Festival.

Calgarians will gather and Intersect at TEDxYYC 2017 on June 23 at Arts Commons. We will navigate the fleeting and enduring moments where people meet, ideas converge, creativity flows, conversations spark and curiosity awakens.

In honour of #Canada150, this year’s TEDxYYC event will showcase an all-Canadian roster of big thinkers, action takers, courageous innovators, trailblazers and brave artists.
