 She is in the middle of recording her third solo Cd, though she has three out with her trio, the Fates.

“I’m not quite country, not quite folk. I’m folk roots” said Allen, describing her sound. She will be playing with  guitarist Mel Smith and  bassist Peter Loughlin, who also plays with Dave McCann.

 Allen has been touring with Smith and Loughlin for  the past 10 years and is looking forward to playing her very first South Country Fair.

“I’ve been to the fair, but it’s been many years. It’s been a long time. I always have a lot of little festivals booked during the summer. This is the first opportunity I’ve had to play the South Country Fair,” said Allen, who was born and raised in High River.

“I’m excited about it and the new record too,” Allen said adding her show, which begins at 8 p.m. July 16, will include ‘a mix of the old and new.’
“It will range from more swing  type music to straight ahead  acoustic roots music.” she said.
“I’ll be playing a lot of new material and some old. It will be a mixture,” she said.
