Friday 25th, 7.30pm: Peter Willie Youngtree
“…vividly written songs that recall classic Country-Rock figures like Gram Parsons.” (Vish Khanna, Exclaim!)
Peter Willie Youngtree’s mixing of old Folk and Country motifs with modern sounds, combined with his contemplative lyrics, has earned him comparisons to Bob Dylan, Gram Parsons, and Eric Bachmann. Brought up in a family of Newfoundland folk musicians, Youngtree was steeped with musical and lyrical sense, and also with a sense of justice that still informs his writing. Since the release of his award-winning debut album “Country Hymns” (MusicNL Country Recording of the Year, 2016), Youngtree has toured eastern Canada extensively. Highlights include sharing the stage with with modern folk icon Jennifer Castle, showcasing on the Country/Blues Stage at the 2017 East Coast Music Awards, and most recently performing at the Newfoundland & Labrador Folk Festival. In addition to topping Earshot! Top 30 charts from coast to coast, “Country Hymns” earned high praise from Overcast Magazine as one of the best Newfoundland albums of the year and was long-listed for the Borealis Music Prize. Together with his backing band, The Blooms, Peter Willie Youngtree is now recording his second album with producer Chris Kirby for release in Spring 2018.
This evening Peter will be appearing with Joe Tucker on guitar and Paddy Byrne on upright bass.

Thursday 31st, 7.30pm: SHYRE
Montreal’s hidden gem Shyre, a five-piece chamberpop creative collaboration, is thrilled to welcome you around their universe of music and adventure. Shyre’s highly anticipated Newfoundland debut is guaranteed to leave you transported through cinematic soundscapes and nostalgic lyrics. Often compared to fellow Montreal-grown musicians such as Patrick Watson and Arcade Fire, this original five-member treasure features ethereal sounds of vocal powerhouse Sarah Rossy, songwriter and bandleader. Shyre’s unique sonic character, combining orchestral textures with pop-folk undertones, emerges from their diverse makeup: composed of a violin, viola, singer/pianist, bass, and drums – the first female drummer to graduate from McGill’s Schulich school of music, no less. It is no surprise that audiences all over Canada have been so receptive of this diverse ensemble, formed by musicians from Vancouver to Quebec.
Their first EP, Winds, was released in 2014 and their most recent EP, Atlas Flag, was released in 2015. In the summer of 2016 Shyre made a 3-night sold-out debut at the Montreal International Jazz Festival. Although formed four years ago this is Shyre’s first tour through Newfoundland.
