Russell deCarle with Steve Briggs: Presented by Newmarket Folk Society
Youll probably remember Russell deCarle as the lead vocalist and bassist of the iconic Canadian country roots band, Prairie Oyster. Russell is no stranger to awards and accolades his Oyster years were rewarded with six Juno Awards, more than a dozen Canadian Country Music Awards and enough gold and platinum records and #1 singles to fill a living room wall. The truth is, though, that Prairie Oyster was always more than a country band, and deCarles warm, burnished and intimate voice has always honoured an eclectic range of songs that mix southern soul and restrained balladry, with obvious touches of jazz, blues, old-school country, and western swing.
Russell will be joined by guitarist, Steve Briggs. Steves notoriety on the Canadian music scene has evolved to venerable. He has performed, arranged and recorded with a wealth of artists including Sylvia Tyson, Murray McLauchlan, Leon Redbone and many others. His popular western swing orchestra, the Bebop Cowboys, has garnered many glowing reviews and accolades across the country.
Please join us for another great evening of music!
