A warm crowd filled the listening room on this rainy night, it was cosy and inviting. No better
place to hear the lineup of Country, Folk and Roots Canadiana.
First up, the cowboy crooning’s of Ian Badger with his finger picked arpeggio guitar style.
Country meets nylon strings.
The George Jones influenced Ian regales us with his sad boy country tunes. They leap from the
page and are all heart. Warming up the crowd with his quirky anecdotes it’s easy to see why
his distinctive style wins hearts.
Not before long Josh & Bex take to the intimate stage and pour their hearts out.
Armed with lovely folk tones and stunning harmonies this pair of songwriters are a delight to
watch. Their voices blend seamlessly and their stories behind the music invite you to share
their world. This is one of the finest folk duos that BC has to offer, if you get a chance to see
them live, go.
Last, but certainly not least, was Kentucky Eileen with their blend of true home baked Roots
Their four part harmonies show these boys love what they do, and they do it well. Every solo
was on point, from the raucous fiddle to the mandolin. This band of brothers do what they love
and it shows. They charmed the crowd with their high energy, quick wit and great vibrant
tunes. The mellow listening room was soon on its feet dancing and singing with the band, who
undoubtedly know how to party.
Certainly a night that places BC’s talent firmly on the map.
The team at Rootdwellers would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all the artists who always
astound us with their talent, we are so grateful for your support for our little listening room.
As always thanks to our hosts Spade Cafe who provide the gorgeous space we’ve come to call
We’d love to have you at our next show...
