Cornwall loves roots music. Celebrate the sounds of yesteryear at these great concerts in September!
A young band hailing from Toronto, the Slocan Ramblers play classic bluegrass that has already earned them international recognition for their incredibly skillful and soulful songs. The recipients of many awards, even though the Slocans have only released three albums (so far!) they have already earned legions of adoring fans. They earned a Juno nomination this year for their latest, Queen City Jubilee, which is chock full of rousing roots stompers that will make you want to get up and dance.
On Friday, September 13, the Slocan Ramblers will be playing at the Aultsville Theatre here in Cornwall and it’s going to be a rip-roaring good time filled with soulful tunes, uplifting rhythms and great music. The Slocan Ramblers are what live music is all about – don’t miss out.
Keith Glass may not be a household name, but there’s a good chance you’re familiar with his other major project where he cut his teeth: Prairie Oyster.
Named after, ahem, a “regional delicacy,” Prairie Oyster blended soulful lyrics and vocals with a bluesy country sound that was a revelation when it hit airwaves in the 80s. Sounding like a mix between acts like Roy Orbison, Blue Rodeo and Chris Isaak, Prairie Oyster wrote mature, sophisticated country that was sweet and tender.
Keith Glass was the guitarist for Prairie Oyster, and in many ways responsible for their singular sound. Come hear him make his hollow-body guitar weep, wail and sing when he plays with his band at the Port Theater on September 28.
