Canadian band The Brothers Landreth is making a stop in North Battleford this Saturday, the third of eleven dates on a short tour spanning the Prairies, and concluding in B.C.
Two shows on the tour are already sold out, including the Calgary date at Festival Hall, and the Cumberland B.C. date.
In 2015, the band won a Juno for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year, and was nominated for the Americana UK International Artist of the Year alongside names associated with alternative country: Gretchen Peters, Jason Isbell, and Sturgill Simpson.
The Dekker Centre’s Moe McGuinty said the band’s vocals sound like the Eagles, and that their sound is rock but not quite heavy rock, something resembling the Allman Brothers Band. The Bros. Landreth’s slide guitarist Ariel Posen, McGuinty said, is “out of this world” and one of the best he’s ever heard. Bonnie Raitt has also spoken highly of the band.
The Bros. Landreth is touring with pianist Roman Clarke for a number of dates, and Clarke will open the show before joining The Bros. Landreth, McGuinty said. McGuinty calls Clarke “a heartthrob.”
Tickets are available at the Dekker Centre’s box office, or online. The show begins at 8:00 p.m.
