Thu. April 20th 2023 7:00 - 9:30 doors at 5:30 (All Ages)
Livestream + In Person $25 plus fees/tax, walk-ins welcome
Sharon Bailey takes an Americana playbook and translates it into an original west-coast blend of Alt Country, Folk Roots, and Rock – where the rural and urban collide. The singer/songwriter's 2018 album The Heart of Everything, is now followed up with Play Me A Song, produced by virtuoso musician Adam Dobres and mixed by Juno-nominated multi-instrumentalist Adrian Dolan. Inspired by such artists as Gillian Welch, Lucinda Williams and Natalie Merchant, Bailey's lush and luminous new work showcases melodic hooks and memorable lines amidst the stellar musicianship of her band.
The show will feature Tyler Lieb (Leeroy Stagger, Sarah Osborne Richard Moody) on pedal steel and guitar, Dylan Stone (The Unfaithful Servants) on bass, Dana Tower (Kurt Loewen, Brett Smith Daniels, Buena Buya) on drums, and Quin Etheridge-Pedden(The Unfaithful Servants, The Velvet Grip) on fiddle.

Opening the night will be Pony Gold. An acclaimed duo, also known for playing with a full band of Victoria's top players. With a heavy emphasis on vocals and slide guitar, this group showcases themes of escapism, purpose, love and loss that give voice to the parts of the human experience we all feel but can’t describe. Drawing inspiration from artists like Tedeschi Trucks Band and Lucinda Williams, the group introduces a fresh approach to Canadiana music by weaving in the classic sounds of country, blues, and soul, with new wave indie folk and rock
