Duelin' Viola brothers "No Mothers" are back at Tractorgrease Saturday Nov 4th at 7pm. Leah Barley & the Converse Cowboys will be playing too!!!
Tickets are $12 and available during business hrs at 604 858 3814 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pushing the limits of how much ruckus can be made by two humans and their fiddles, the Brothers K holler out songs of whiskey, sagebrush, love, yodeling, The Other Side, pirates, bicycles, and skeletons dancing in the grave. Aided by their friendly beards and mighty violas, Tony and John easily walk the not-so-fine line between bellowing fury and cosmic sentimentality. Never afraid of ANYTHING, their shows are a raucous mix of original songs and fresh spins on old favorites. Possessing the hearts, ears, and skeletons of folks since December 21, 2012, NO MOTHERS has arisen from the ashes of the apocalypse-that-only-sort-of-happened as one of the most original and entertaining folk acts you'll ever stomp along with.
What do you get when you mix the softness of Norah Jones, the deep emotional blues of Amy Winehouse, and the sassy grit of Janis Joplin? Vancouver based blues folk-rock singer/songwriter Leah Barley.
This self-taught vocalist, banjo, and guitar player started her interest in the stage at a young age. Dancing and acting since grade school, Leah fell in love with Blue Grass and Old Time Country once she moved to Alberta in her early twenties.
She bought herself a banjo and was writing and performing within two months.
Since then a decade has passed and she's released three EPs; the most recent Come Home in September 2016.
Leah has toured throughout parts of Canada, performed at CBC Music Vancouver in 2017 and 2016, and even at the Whiskey a Go Go and Hotel Café in L.A (with the Wayward Hearts).
Either solo or accompanied by her backing band; outstandingly talented violist John Kastelic (NO MOTHERS) and multi-instrumentalist Ross Christopher Fairbairn, Leah brings a raw and dynamic performance filled with epic tales of love and loss with beautiful tones and a ridiculous range that will make your hair stand on end.
