Greenbank plays Folkus Concert Series (with Moonfruits)Saturday, February 23, 2019 from 8:00 PM to 11:00 PM (EST) More Information →
Greenbank can’t stay away from a piano, and neither can we. We’re looking forward to having their sweet harmonies, smooth piano chops, and mellow 70s vibe in our hall. They draw on the folk-rock sounds of the Guess Who and the Laurel Canyon scene, while anchoring their subject matter firmly in the present day. Greenbank is made up of Jim Breslin (Guitar/ Vocals) and Craig Smyth (Keyboards/ Vocals), and their sound is bigger than their numbers would have you think. Based in Thunder Bay, Greenbank have just released their second album, Glory Days.
Opening for Greenbank will be Ottawa’s Moonfruits. Partners on and off stage, Alex Millaire & Kaitlin Milroy are practitioners of “folk bilingue”. Their harmonies are stunning, and their instrumentation is original. Their latest project, Ste-Quelquepart, (Saint Somewhere), is an elaborate fiction, telling the tales of an imaginary village in Eastern Ontario.
Folkus concerts are a rare chance to see bands up close and hear them as they’re meant to be heard. The series is a not-for profit haven for Canadian artists in colder months. Tickets and details at www.folkusalmonte.com
Doors open at 7:30, show time is 8:00.
The welcome is warm, the beer (local) is cold, it’s worth the drive to Almonte!
