Red Moon Road

October 13, 2016 @ 7:30 PM

Red Moon Road, the Winnipeg folk trio is known for surviving adversity, spinning stories into songs and, stunning musicianship. They formed in 2012 by Daniel Jordan, Sheena Rattai and Daniel Peloquin-Hopfner. They have toured extensively, to 7 countries in Europe and North America with ‘Sorrows and Glories’ (their third album, released in Autumn 2015). It has already spent three weeks at number one on the Earshot! National Folk/Roots/Blues Charts and has delighted listeners world wide. Live, Red Moon Road makes a much bigger sound than one would expect from a trio. In an impressive well-choreographed show, bordering on spectacle, the trio incorporates impeccable threepart harmonies, a roots drum kit split entertainingly but pragmatically between two band members and an acoustic guitar rigged to also be a bass.

A moustached man plays mandolin, lap steel, banjo and organ, and subtle technological wizardry whirls as the unmistakable soulful voice of one of Canada’s premiere songstresses floats above it all. Honed in house concerts and main stage festival appearances alike, Red Moon Road is a tapestry of song, masterful storytelling and spontaneous repartee woven seamlessly into something truly exceptional.Spanning a wide range of genres, from a Beatlesesque pop song,to full-on spiritual and jazz and innovative instrumental work. With tastes of Albertan country, Parisian aires, banjo driven anthems and the tradition folk storytelling in a Canadiana style, the music carries the stories as compellingly as the lyrics.
