MoSo: Willie Thrasher and Linda Saddleback, Anamai and Ride ‘Til Dawn at The Refinery
June 18, 2016 @ 7:30 pm
MoSoFest and MoSo Conference are very proud to present a special evening of music and stories featuring Willie Thrasher & LInda Saddleback along with Kevin ‘Sipreano’ Howe. With special guests Anamai & Ride ’til Dawn.
Willie Thrasher has been a mainstay on the Canadian music scene for decades, writing and performing songs about Inuit and First Nations culture and history. Known for touching upon difficult subjects with grace, sweet melodies and folk-rock guitar lines, Thrasher’s approach to music is about finding solace in sound and storytelling. With three of his songs on the 2014 grammy nominated historical compilation album Native North America (Vol. 1) and the 2015 rerelease of his 1981 album Spirit Child, Thrasher is loving the journey of finding a whole new audience. Willie performs alongside his partner Linda Saddleback.
This show will also include Native North America Vol. 1 producer Kevin ‘Sipreano’ Howe spinning records and showcasing archival videos and photos from his vast collection.
The haunting hymns of ANAMAI could fit in the halls of worship of an alternate universe. They preach merciless honesty on soothing compositions of folk, ambient and drone anointed with electronic elements, creating new sounds out of timeless ideas. http://buzzrecords.ca/anamai/
