Canadian band playing in Bristol this weekend
PUBLISHED: 21:00 16 May 2018
A Canadian indie-folk band will bring their unique sound to the South West.
The Once are heading to Bristol’s Colston Hall, in Colston Street, for the first time on Friday.
A mix of original and traditional material and their three part harmonies, often performed acappella, have been a notable trait of their prize-winning sound.
The three-piece hail from small-town Newfoundland, and have collected three Canadian folk music awards and two JUNO nominations.
Their first album was released in 2009 and quickly gathered critical acclaim. They were originally known for their haunting interpretations of traditional music.
But The Once members Phil Churchill, Geraldine Hollett and Andrew Dale’s 2016 album, We Win Some We Lose, signalled a fresh sound which is completely their own.
The Once will play at Colston Hall, in Colston Street, on Friday at 8pm.
Tickets, priced £10.75, can be bought at www.colstonhall.org or on 01172 034040.
