Blackberry Wood is bringing their magic combination of alternative-country, gypsy-circus music to Golden.
They play a high-energy cabaret spin on dreamy old musical styles, adding big juicy modern flavours.
This tour is part of a larger set of tours to celebrate the release of their new album, Strong Man vs. Russian Bears.
The third album to be released since the band’s inception on January 1, 2005, Strong Man vs. Russian Bears reflects the pure, raw energy of their live show more than their previous albums.
“We wanted to make something that people can take home from our shows and have it really remind them of what they saw. We’re really proud of our live show, we really wanted to try and capture it,” said Jenny Red, the band’s saxophone player since 2010.With more than 400 shows under their belt both in Canada and the United Kingdom and appearances at dozens of festivals including Glastonbury Festival in Glastonbury, England, Frostbite Festival in Whitehorse, Robson Valley Music Festival and Arts Wells Festival of all things art, Blackberry Wood has been kicking up a storm almost everywhere they go.
“Making a party is our goal. We like for everybody to have fun,” said Red.
The live performance is unlike anything you could imagine as the band brings their own unique sound and style to the stage where ever they go.
They’re playing at the Rockwater Grill and Bar on Friday Oct. 19.
