The Harrison Festival of the Arts Presents: Pharis & Jason Romero / Stephen Fearing
Pharis & Jason Romero:
Singing vibrant duets, writing deadly songs, playing handmade banjos and loving old acoustic guitars, Pharis & Jason Romero have a classic story. When some scratchy old records and a custom banjo led to their meeting in 2007, they quickly knew they were in for the long haul. Now married and raising a family in Horsefly, BC, they've since released five records - three as a duo - and toured across North America and the UK. They've won a Juno award, been featured on NPR Music, CBC, BBC, and Folk Alley, and have performed on A Prairie Home Companion and CBC's The Vinyl Cafe.
Stephen Fearing came on the scene in the late 1980s as part of a generation of exciting folk musicians that included Spirit of the West and James Keelaghan. His skillful fingerstyle guitar accompaniment and poetic, sometimes dark-toned songwriting evoked elements of British singer songwriters such as Richard Thomspon and John Martyn, with hints of jazz and blues stylings. Since then, he has gone on to develop a prolific career as both a solo artist and member of the acclaimed trio Blackie and the Rodeo Kings with Colin Linden and Tom Wilson
