Slow Leaves is the project of Winnipeg, Canada’s Grant Davidson. His music calls to mind a 1970’s California country-folk record newly discovered in your parents’ attic. Known for his easy delivery of sincere, poetic lyrics and lilting melodied, Slow Leaves’ songs linger in the timeless spaces where heart and humility endure.
21 May AWRY
Formed a couple or so years ago in an Edinburgh cafe, this fiddle and pipes driven band/dance band is described by some as "psychegaelic" and it has been said that the musicians' blood has been replaced with Red Bull and nitroglycerine! This is bound to be heart pumping stuff - and it's all traditional!
28 May Larry Kaplan
Originally from Boston, Larry spent many of his formative years in Maine. Widely regarded as one of he great performers of the folk revival, he is a keen and sympathetic observer of the human condition and cares deeply and writes eloquently about the concerns of others, reflecting his profound respect for the farmers, fishermen, and the other hard working people of New England, from the hills of Vermont to the Maine coast and the Connecticut shoreline. But these are not merely "regional" songs. Larry's themes address topics of concern to all of us who care about those with whom we share this planet. Larry is also a skilled guitarist and his gentle accompaniments to his songs are the settings for jewels. When he sings, his expressive voice lets the story tell itself.
