The Folkus 2018 season got off to a great start on January 27th. Pakenham native Brad Scott opened the show with his infectious style of playing, and Amanda Rheaume’s trio had the hall on its feet with an extended set at this sold out concert. What a great way to beat the winter blues.
The first of four shows in the 2018 Folkus Concert Series has sold out, but there are still three more to come!
Sandy Irvin, Artistic Director of the Folkus Concert Series, was interviewed this morning on CKCU 93.1. If you’d like to have a listen, you can do so here:
Amanda Rheaume has been a stalwart of the Canadian Roots scene for a number of years, and she is a touring veteran, having played across Canada (coast to coast to coast), Europe, The United Kingdom, Faroe Islands, the USA, and Central America. She has even played for Canadian Forces troops in Afghanistan (three times!). Amanda Rheaume won a 2014 Canadian Folk Music Award was nominated for a Juno in the same year. She is blessed with a warm, pure, voice, an ear for a melody, and a strong sense of storytelling.
