Play Notes

× Tickets $37.50 Leaf Rapids is the Winnipeg based husband and wife duo Keri and Devin Latimer that perform their own brand of Cinematic Folk. Devin, the bass player (who also happens to be a physics professor) helped score a Juno Award for the band Nathan which he co-anchors with his wife. Keri who’s got that sweet, pure-as-the-mountain-air singing voice that great folk-roots songs are made of – a little bit of Emmylou, a sprinkle of Dolly, a touch of Nanci Griffith – also has mad skills on the unique instrument, the theremin, and she can write a song so perfect you’ll swear it was traditional. Blue Moon Marquee is a gypsy blues band largely influenced by old delta blues, swing, jazz and ragtime. Originally from Alberta wild rose country, Cree/ Metis guitarist and vocalist A.W. Cardinal and multi-instrumentalist Jasmine Colette (vocals, bass, drums) write and perform original compositions that merge swing blues and jazz with contemporary sounds and old Native soul. Blue Moon Marquee has been traversing the country for nearly four years, appealing to blues, folk, jazz, swing, rock and indie audiences from Alert Bay to Inuvik to Quebec City.
