Concert: Pharis & Jason Romero (Doors: 6:00PM / Show: 7:00PM)

June 12
Grist Mill & Gardens, 2691 Upper Bench Road
Keremeos, BC V0X1N4 Canada
+ Google Map

Singing vibrant duets, writing deadly songs, playing handmade banjos and loving old acoustic guitars, Pharis & Jason Romero have a classic story. When some scratchy old records and a custom banjo led to their meeting in 2007, they quickly knew they were in for the long haul. They've since released five records - three as a duo - and toured across North America and the UK. They've won a Juno award, been featured on NPR Music, CBC, BBC, and Folk Alley, and have performed on A Prairie Home Companion and CBC's The Vinyl Cafe. They are passionate teachers and believers in many things folk, and their heartbreakingly harmonic live show is an ever-evolving and never-ending quest for good songs and beautiful sounds.

Resonant, acoustic folk with an other-worldly edge, and a lyric presence that cuts deep. Prism-clear vocals + strings; A combination of vocal agility and power.

Raine is part prairie songstress, part storyweaver; Each song has a story, delivered between songs with humour and grace. Expect to laugh, expect to cry. Also, she’s probably shorter than you’re imagining, so expect that, too.

Raine invites her love of the violin into the singer-songwriter genre, writing for violin and voice, as well as for guitar and voice.

Concert: The Eisenhauers (Doors: 6:00PM / Show: 7:00PM)

Keremeos, BC V0X1N4 Canada
+ Google Map

It has been said that all Canadian writing inevitably reflects the almost impenetrable vastness of the land and the great distances that separate us. If ‘The Road We Once Knew’ by the Eisenhauers, the husband and wife duo of Jeremy Eisenhauer and Sheree Plett Eisenhauer, is any indication, you’d be hard pressed not to come to the same conclusion about Canadian music. Simple, spare and heartbreaking in its directness, the concepts of distance, time and the wavering arcs of separation and reunion have rarely been as compellingly explored as they are in this powerful debut album.
