Braden Gates & Russell deCarle
April 18 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$37.50
Edmonton’s own Braden Gates is a folk singer through and through, full of wit and wisdom, folksy charm and sharp observations. Gates’ compositions are relevant and, strangely, very rooted in the present – even if he plays that fiddle and picks that guitar like an artist three times his age.
Prairie Oyster was always more than a “country” band, and with his solo career, DeCarle’s warm, burnished and intimate voice has always honoured an eclectic range of songs that mix southern soul and restrained balladry, with obvious touches of jazz, blues, old-school country, and western swing.
