JUNE 30th MUSIC SCHEDULE:
FEATURED MUSICIANS THIS WEEK ARE LOCAL 5 PIECE BAND FISH & BIRD…
Fish & Bird were once Victoria’s most promising folk duo, and over the past 3 years they have evolved into Canada’s most unique folk-rock ensemble. Their music hovers somewhere in the void between Newgrass and Indie-folk. If the Avett Brothers and Chris Thile’s Punch Brothers’ parents got married and they all became step-brothers, they might sound something like this.
Folk is kind of the idea but nowadays kids get their records from all over the place. Bluegrass, Country, Art-rock, Jazz, the Beach Boys…. these individual influences come out if you listen for them but the strength is in the blend. The songs get you in the heart and the music screws with your brain.
The band has graced dozens of summer festival stages, and done over a dozen multi-province tours. In fall 2010, they recorded 9 new songs. A departure from the multitracked approach of the last 2 albums, almost everything was recorded live, including lead vocals. Entitled “Every Whisper Is A Shout Across the Void”, the Western Canadian Music Award-nominated new album features the entire five piece band pretty much exactly as they sound playing together all at once.
Have a look and listen to the following video to get a good feel for the incredible talent that will be gracing the James Bay Market stage this coming Saturday, June 30, 2012!!! Happy Canada Day! ~Sarah Maria xo
