9pm, songwriters circle with Geoff Smith (Gunner and Smith), Fern and Grant Davidson.
10pm, full band set from Slow Leaves
Slow Leaves is Winnipeg’s Grant Davidson. 2014’s Beauty is so Common like an early ’70s California country-folk record newly discovered in your parent’s attic is at once new and familiar, melody intense, and immediately classic. https://slowleaves.bandcamp.com/
2014 has been a busy year for Geoff and his band, Gunner and Smith. Criss crossing the country from one coast to the next Gunner and Smith has been working hard to get their songs and stories into the ears and hearts of as many Canadians as possible.
Often joined by other musicians to perform as Fern, Rachel Fowlie-Neufeld will be sharing her songs and stories with us solo this time around. With a sound rooted in folk, Rachel reaches into what some call folk and roll, creating soundscapes that capture the feel and beauty of our gritty prairie town.
