Regina folk artist to make appearance at Park(ing) Day festival in Saskatoon
Keiffer and the Curiosity Club have released their single “Headful of Diamonds” in preview of their upcoming album Drama in the Attic.
The indie folk project of Regina’s Keiffer Mclean, the group will be playing the Ominocity-sponsored Park(ing) Day stage this Friday, September 20 at 6pm.
Basing his songs off an acoustic guitar along with a wide range of eclectic influences, Mclean’s latest single features a simple, winding acoustic melody and plaintive vocal lines. The results are a devastatingly haunting prairies folk song.
“‘Headful of Diamonds’ will have a video as well,” says Mclean. “I am planning on doing a release party and a show in preparation for the CD release.
“I’m hoping that will happen in November or December.”
Mclean says that he will be heading into the studio to finish Drama in the Attic.
“This next album is going to be quite different from the last, which was a seven song EP where I played solo. Two of the songs from that EP will be completely redone. The newer songs will be longer, and it won’t necessarily be as poppy or upbeat.”
In addition to the Park(ing) Day Festival, Keiffer and the Curiosity Club will be playing in Regina at the Artful Dodger on September 21 as well as the Kindersley Culture Festival on September 27.
