Working a day gig never made sense for Kevin Roy. Upon the release of the Winnipeg troubadour’s 2014 debut, Taller Than The Trees, he left the stability of his high school teaching gig for a life on the road. Swapping in students wielding knives, saws and implements of destruction in the high school wood shop for more attentive audiences in North American bars and theatres, Roy hasn’t looked back.
Now, he’s set to release his latest collection, the Kickstarter-goal surpassing Heartworn Highways, to his country and roots rock-loving backers, and anyone else interested in pulling up a chair and listening to some genuine, good ol’ storytelling songs. http://www.kevinroymusic.com
In With The Old
Made up of Ellen Froese-Kooijenga on mandolin, guitar, banjo, and vocals, Jaxon Lalonde on banjo, bass, and vocals, and Kasia Thorlakson on guitar, mandolin, vocals, autoharp, and upright bass, In With The Old is providing a fresh new take on old-time, folk, and bluegrass music. With a mix of unique originals, age-old traditionals, beautiful harmonies and a twanging banjo, they are sure to get all the hip kids popping and locking. http://www.inwiththeoldband.com
