Description

Amanda Rheaume, January 27, 2018

Amanda Rheaume has been on our AD's wish list for our series for quite some time, and we're delighted that she can grace our stage this year. She is currently touring in support of Holding Patterns, a delightful, soulful, album.

Rheaume has been a stalwart of the Canadian Roots scene for a number of years, and she is a touring veteran, having played across Canada (coast to coast to coast), Europe, The United Kingdom, Faroe Islands, the USA, and Central America. She has even played for Canadian Forces troops in Afghanistan (three times!). Amanda Rheaume won a 2014 Canadian Folk Music Award was nominated for a Juno in the same year. She is blessed with a warm, pure, voice, an ear for a melody, and a strong sense of storytelling.

Rheaume will be joining us shortly after a return from a songwriting trip to Nashville, and she promises a few new songs to share with us. We just confirmed that Rheaume will be joined by longtime sidemen Anders Drerup and Leonardo Valvassori . This will be one of her last trio shows before her next tour, so it promises to be especially intimate.

Pakenham native Bradley D. Scott will be opening for Amanda Rheaume. He’s a versatile player, lending his talents to local bands, singing originals and covers all over the Valley, and writing scores for video games, among other gigs (such is the life of a modern musician). He released his first solo album, New Frontier, in 2017.

Folkus concerts are a rare chance to see bands up close and hear them as they’re meant to be heard. The series is a not-for profit haven for Canadian artists in colder months. Tickets and details at www.folkusalmonte.com

Doors open at 7:30, show time is 8:00.

The welcome is warm, the beer (local) is cold, it’s worth the drive to Almonte!
