Milkcrate Records – Elk The Moose In Store February 24

Elk The Moose, a Roots/Folk/Reggae trio originally formed in Peterborough, Ontario, now active here in Kelowna BC will grace the murphy stage and put on what should be a pretty great show.  To add to the fun, this will be the bands CD release show for their debut ep, Burgoyne Bay.

The show will be free and all ages as always, but feel free to bring a few dollars to support the band, or even pick up one of their CDs!

Bill and Joel Plaskett @ Mary Irwin Theatre, March 29th

Bill and Joel Plaskett @ Mary Irwin Theatre WITH SPECIAL GUEST: MAYHEMINGWAYS

unnamed-4

When Bill Plaskett and his son Joel Plaskett get together to write songs, the result, as Bill describes it, is “a touch of the traditional mixed in with the new, and a lot of the unexpected, arrived at through experimentation.” The result is Solidarity, an album that welds Bill’s traditional folk leanings with Joel’s long and acclaimed history in the Canadian rock landscape.

Set for release on February 17 via Pheromone Recordings, the title track, “Solidarity” is a great summation of their collaboration, both lyrically and sonically. “I wanted a song Dad and I could sing together that connected our individual journeys and our personal politics,” says Joel. “The word ‘solidarity’ came to mind and didn’t leave.”

Beginning March 15, Bill and Joel will embark on the Solidarity Tour across Canada, performing their collaborations and other songs from Joel’s vast catalog. Peterborough fuzz-folk duo Mayhemingways is also along for the ride as opening support and performing with Bill and Joel.

Current tour dates can be found below, with more tour dates to be announced shortly. For fan pre-sale tickets – follow the links below and use the code “Solidarity”.
