The Travelling Mabels

The Travelling Mabels are an ACMA award winning folk/country group from southern Alberta, Canada.
For more than a decade, they have brought their own unique brand of harmony, humour and musicianship to Canadian audiences from coast to coast, performing at venues ranging from folk clubs and community halls to big festivals such as the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival. In addition, they have shared the stage with many notable artists such as Ian Tyson, Tom Jackson, The Elvis Imperials and Gene Watson.

The group was formed in 2008 by husband and wife duo, Keith and Lana Floen and mother and daughter duo, Eva and Suzanne Levesque. Over the next ten years they collectively wrote and recorded three Cd’s and have enjoyed extensive airplay on radio stations such as CBC and CKUA. Their song release, Alberta Blue, has been a long time fan favourite and features a cameo vocal performance by the legendary Ian Tyson.

2018 marked the departure of Suzanne Levesque and opened the door to their newest member, Therry Lawson, a gifted and talented singer/songwriter in her own right. The Travelling Mabels are currently in the studio writing and recording material for their newest CD and are eager to hit the road to share it with the world.

As an ardent fan once humorously stated “If the Eagles and the Trio (Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris) were a family, then surely their children would be The Travelling Mabels”.
