The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer set to rock Keloha

THE HARPOONIST & THE AXE MURDERER
NORTH AMERICAN 
TOUR COMES TO KELOWNA’S KELOHA MUSIC AND ARTS FESTIVAL ON JULY 12

Catch The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer in action right now during their North American summer tour including an upcoming stop at Keloha Festival.

“With a name like The Harpoonist and The Axe Murderer, you might be forgiven for thinking that the Vancouver-based duo is some sort of concept group based on a hypothetical love story between Captain Ahab and Lizzie Borden.” (Chris Oke, Yukon News) In reality, Shawn ‘The Harpoonist’ Halland Matthew ‘The Axe Murderer’ Rogers evoke much more than just grisly nautical imagery. Armed with a sack of harmonicas, a mess of foot percussion, and a road-worn Telecaster, the duo kick out raw and primal blues in the tradition of a ‘decades-deep blues style’ (Scott Brown, What’s up Yukon), while infusing the genre with a jolt of renewed energy.
