Red Moon Road
Welcome back Red Moon Road back for the4th time. People on our facebook were asked to tell us about their favourite moments and Red Moon Roads performance in 2017 atop the picnic table in the rain and jumping in when Garth Hudson was running late consistently come up. What will they have in store for us this year?
Red Moon Road make a much bigger sound than one would expect from a trio. It’s an impressive, well-choreographed show incorporating impeccable three-part harmonies, a roots drum kit split between two band members, and an acoustic guitar franken-rigged to also be the bass. Simultaneously, a moustached man plays mandolin, lap steel, banjo and organ (often at the same time) and subtle technological wizardry whirls while the unmistakable soulful voice of Sheena (one of Canada’s most talented singers) soars above it all. RMR road has toured 7 countries with their latest album “Sorrows and Glories” which was Polaris Prize long listed and spent six weeks at #1 on the national Earshot! Folk/Roots chart.
Red Moon Road’s unique show is equal parts polished song writing, undeniable musicianship, compelling storytelling and engaging showmanship. Canterbury fell in love with them at their first appearance in 2014.
