The Crooked Brothers are home-brewed. They play homegrown, homemade music.
Both gritty and pretty at once their take on folk, on blues, rock or anything they turn their hands to cant be said to be anything but their own. Sometimes its as simple as three sweet harmonies, or a single harmonica holding the whole room at attention, and sometimes things growl and shake and come smashing down with a filthy rhythm beneath it. But its all Crooked Brothers, to the last drop.
Their new album, Thank You Im Sorry 2014 Captured in the wide open spaces of both a warehouse and a handmade log home sounds bigger, feels bigger than their last two albums. Folk music has never had this kind of groove to it. There is still that depth and story to their lyrics, still the familiar attention to detail. Every sound, every song carefully crafted. But the band itself has grown they rarely perform as a trio anymore, opting for the heft and groove that the upright bass and drums afford. If this is folk music, its folk music full of left turns. A dark poem that sets hundreds dancing at a time.
The Slocan Ramblers are Canadas young bluegrass band to watch. Rooted in the tradition, fearlessly creative, and possessing a bold, dynamic sound, the Slocan Ramblers have quickly become a leading light of Canadas roots music scene, built on their reputation for memorable, energetic live shows and impeccable musicianship.
With their debut album Shaking Down the Acorns receiving wide acclaim Sing Out! Magazine, Huffington Post etc, extensive national and international touring under their belt, and a sophomore release in the works, this fearless four piece is sure to keep garnering attention far beyond the traditional bluegrass fan-base.
Hope you can get down to Ossington for this fine night.
