Jul 15-Alexander Flock

Jul 22-Backspin

The Bluegrass Band, Backspin, plays a mix of traditional and country-flavoured Bluegrass Songs as well as songs and tunes of their own creation. Bluegrass Music is one of only two forms of music to have completely evolved in North America – the other being Jazz. Bluegrass has roots in Scottish, English, Welsh and Irish traditional music and was developed by Grand Old Opry star Bill Monroe during the ‘40’s. It is sometimes described as “folk music in overdrive”.

Jul 29-Murfitt & Main

Murfitt & Main plumb the depths of country, bluegrass, and western swing, playing home-made songs steeped in the living tradition of roots music. Their original songs possess a clarity rooted in the musical traditions of rural North America, in a contemporary voice. Heartbreak, honky-tonks, whiskey, unions, religion, the Canadian terrain, and the Berlin wall are all fair game in their songwriting. Sweet vocal harmonies draw listeners in adding that high lonesome country sound to the mix.

Comprising the core of the band are the two song-smiths Warren Murfitt (guitar and vocals), and Kate Main (upright bass and vocals). Other musicians who add their considerable musical talents on frequent occasion: Chris Dawson-Murphy (banjo, guitar and vocals), Matt Kennedy (mandolin and vocals). Murfitt & Main make their home on the West Coast of Canada in Vancouver.
