Sweet Alibi are back for another concert at the Farm to follow up on their wonderfully successful performance last spring.
Hailing from what has been described as the music capital of Canada, Winnipeg, WCMA award winners Sweet Alibi have been captivating audiences since 2009 with their charming and personal performances. With 3 releases, over 360 shows ,and 33 plus festival performances,Sweet Alibi is fast becoming a well-known Roots/Pop group.
Their newest release "Walking in the Dark" is a wonderful follow up to Sweet Alibi's Second release' We've Got To'. Walking in the Dark has been making its debut being featured on CBC, MTV Canada, CMT, satellite and college radio. It features the two lead vocals of Jess Rae Ayre and Amber Rose.
Alongside Jess, and Amber's songful framework, when you add the the vocal harmony, banjo and guitar talents of Michelle Anderson, with the spirit and energy of some of Manitoba's finest backing musicians, you end up with the unmistakable sound that has left audiences adoring this Winnipeg group, as they've toured North America over the last several years .
"The appeal of Sweet Alibi's sound hinges on their ability to mix elements of folk, roots, and country, then present it in the context of a tightly-structured pop song.".
