The Small Glories

6:15pm on Aug 30st

Peoples Bank / East Stage

Roots powerhouse duo The Small Glories are Cara Luft & JD Edwards, a musical tour-de-force partnership planted on the Canadian Prairies. Thrown together purely by accident for an anniversary show at Winnipeg’s venerable West End Cultural Centre, The Small Glories could almost make you believe in fate.

With a stage   striking a unique balance between slapstick and sermon, these veteran singer-songwriters have a way of making time disappear, rooms shrink, and audiences feel as though they are right there on the stage with the band — writing the songs, living the songs, performing the songs. It’s not uncommon for listeners to find themselves laughing, dancing, crying, or caught up in a good ol’ fashioned sing-along. “We’re folk singers; we try to write stuff that people can relate to,” says the multi-instrumentalist Edwards, whose looming stage presence and penetrating eyes find him the yin to Luft’s petite, snort-laughing yang. The material of a Small Glories concert is welcoming in terms of subject, folk-pop melody and instrumentation — songs of love, loss, and environment, delivered with soaring, interwoven vocals on various combinations of stomping clawhammer banjo, guitar, and harmonica. However, a Small Glories performance is really about what happens in between the songs. “The feedback we get from a lot of audiences is that it’s not just about the music for them,” Luft says. “It’s the whole package.”

4th + Main

6:00pm and 9:30pm on Aug 30th

Peoples Bank / East Stage

With youthful, high-energy stage performances and pure vocal blends, 4th and Main is quickly establishing themselves as the new crossroads in country music by combining a modern sound with a classic, four-part approach to making music. Chase McDaniel, Randy Austin, Chris Chavez, and Blake Whitlock are turning heads in the genre with musical direction from ten-time GRAMMY® nominated and three-time BMI Music Award-winning producer Wayne Haun.

“Harmony has always played a major role in music for me and is what made me fall in love with country music,” Haun explained. “As a kid, I'd race to my grandma's house to hear ‘Elvira’ by The Oaks and ‘Elizabeth’ by The Statlers on the radio. I watched the Mandrell Sisters religiously on TV. As the years progressed, I absorbed the harmonies of Restless Heart and Diamond Rio…and on to Little Big Town. Harmony draws the listener in immediately and makes you want to sing along. Sometimes it's quite unexplainable. 4th & Main continues that tradition.

Nathaniel Talbot Trio

2:30 Aug 31

Island Thrift / West Stage

Raised in the wooded foothills southeast of Portland, OR, the big firs and wide farmscapes of childhood made a life-long impression on Talbot’s songwriting. “The natural setting imprinted on my sense of self, and populated my brain with the imagery and storylines that would later manifest in my songwriting.” He began learning piano at age seven, started a punk rock band at thirteen, and quickly thereafter began steeping himself in guitar-driven sounds of Kelly Joe Phelps, Elliott Smith, Bill Frisell and other Pacific Northwest heroes. Over the next 15 years, Talbot honed an approach to songwriting and storytelling, driven by his complex, yet delicate, fingerstyle guitar work, which earned him a distinct place in the northwest folk scene. His lately incarnation goes full-electric, featuring island locals Keegan Harshman on bass and Andrew Dorsett on drums, fusing Talbot's folk-roots approach to storytelling with more contemporary elements of R&B, prog and indie-rock.

Harpdog Brown

And The Uptown Blues Band

5:30pm on Aug 31

Island Thrift / West Stage

He’s been called a Blues Evangelist, and that’s a very fitting moniker. "I speak the blues like it's the truth, and it is”, he was recently quoted. "I do feel like I'm a servant of the people. A missionary if you will. Music can heal people if they pay attention to the messages in these songs.” He delivers those messages using the vintage sound whether it be with his lowdown classic blues band the Travelin’ Blues Show or with his new Uptown Blues Band. Harpdog says "Blues has a healing power. It's a beautiful celebration of our perfectly flawed lives. We help people forget about their issues of the moment and then they realize that we all have our issues, and that's OK."

Vancouver-based Harpdog Brown was born in Edmonton in 1962, an adopted child who has felt somewhat detached his whole life - "a lifelong battle of not feeling like I belonged. I feel like I was born for the circus, you know, born to travel. The blues tapped me on the shoulder years ago and said 'this is where you belong, son'. So the blues became my circus and there's no better way to travel than with a band!”

Broken Banjo

1:45 Aug 31

Peoples Bank / East Stage

“Broken Banjo” could be described as a Folk/Americana vocal group,but that would not begin to describe the range of what this exciting trio delivers. In the span of a few songs they can move from a soulful ballad, to a jazz standard, to a classic blues. With Larry Mason on rhythm guitar, Kevin Johnson on lead guitar and Deirdre Fairfax, lead vocals, guitar, harp and penny whistle these three creatively collaborate from their own perspectives and strengths to put a “Broken Banjo” stamp on each song. Their name was adopted from the Deirdre’s father’s music and coffee house in a small town in Millington Tennessee in the mid sixties. It seemed like a perfect namesake for the band that loves to share songs that span across genres and time.

We hope you enjoy our performance!

The Paperboys

7:45pm Aug 30

Peoples Bank / East Stage

Mexican Son Jarocho mixed in with Irish Jigs and Reels and a good dose of Country and Bluegrass. It has healthy servings of Ska, Soca and African Highlife and we've been known to throw in a little White Boy Reggae. Of course it also has strains of Soul, Pop and Funk although we are by no means a funk band. It is mostly Acoustic although we also like Electric guitars. It is Singer-Songwriter based but not the coffee house variety. It is definitely FOLK music, but not in the Kumbaya style. It has a deep respect and appreciation for tradition (Bluegrass, Old Time, Celtic, Son) but it's by no means Traditional. It Rocks incredibly hard and is extremely danceable, but that is not to say it can't be mellow and slow and beautiful. It can be heart breaking, but also joyous. It is never dark or angst ridden, and always full of hope - but not in the 'Up With People' kind of way. It's not Jazz, although we like Jazz a lot. It's not heavy metal or punk or grunge, although we love Rush and AC/DC. It is World Roots Music. It's POP music. It is GOOD music. It has a tendency to connect people and means a lot to many folks the world over, and for that we are very grateful. It is the only multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, multi-generational, multi-lingual, multi-instrumental, genre bending, co-ed band you will hear today!
