The Ragged Flowers brought to you by Folkus Concert Series
Sat, 25 March 2017, 7:30 PM – 10:30 PM EDT
Almonte’s own crazy flower children are in a new incarnation with George Birchall, who's joining the bands original members – Ian Douglas, Steve Reside, Rob Riendeau, and Nathan Sloniowski. Rob and Nathan were instrumental in founding Folkus (Rob even provided the kitchen table for meetings), and we are pleased and proud to able to present them as a highlight of the series.
The Ragged Flowers describe themselves as a poly-rhythmic, neo-psychedelic folk-rock outfit. CBC's Sook-Yin Lee describes them as a "60s go-go bonanza!" Take your pick. With two studio albums and one live album under their belts, this show is a new-tune testing ground before the band goes back into the studio.
Opening for the Ragged Flowers will be Almonte expat Claire Hunter, who is working on her music career in Toronto these days. She has released her first EP and is playing regularly in Southern Ontario. Although always a delightful singer and player, it will be interesting to see the polish she’s picked up from her big-city gigs.
Doors open at 7:30. Seating is not reserved.
