× Trail and District Arts Council presents Kootenay Savings Music in the Park

The Fugitives

with opening act Rumour Mill

Thursday August 25th at 6:15 pm at Gyro Park, Trail BC

The Trail & District Arts Council is very excited to get the community together again at Kootenay Savings Music in The Park! NEW! Admission is by donation – $3 minimum suggested. Or buy a Season Pass Button for the whole season for just $50. Your Season Pass button can be purchased on-line or at The Bailey Theatre Box Office in person or by phone. Buttons purchased online or by phone can be picked up at Gyro Park on show night.

The perfect pairing of indie-folk duo "Rumour Mill" followed by Brendan McLeod’s modern folk quartet The Fugitives.

Opening the evening is “Rumour Mill“, an indie-folk duo headed by multi-instrumentalists, Anna Katarina and Aline Daigle, currently residing in beautiful Nelson, BC. Imagine the sounds of Fleetwood Mac, Brandi Carlile and First Aid Kit melding with a lush topography of violin, harmonies, keys, guitar and mandolin.

Their debut EP, “Daylight’s Free”, released in April 2019, quickly earned respect and attention on the international stage – charting in the top 100 in US College Radio, leading to a nomination for Artist of the Year at the 2019 Kootenay Music Awards, Top 100 in CBC Searchlight, and a full scholarship to the 2020 International Folk Alliance Conference in New Orleans, LA.

In September 2020, they released “Gone With The Wine”. The self-produced EP sees the duo mature in their sound, ringing with a touch of a broken heartedness, and pivoting slightly from their more happy-go-lucky debut. With melancholic melodies, soulful harmonies and lyrics that weave the listener through an exploration of timeless themes, these ladies will sweep you off your feet and leave you wanting more!

Headlining at 7pm are “The Fugitives“, a dynamic modern folk quartet, with 4-part harmony and a variety of instruments (guitar, bass, kick-drum, banjo, violin, balalaika and harmonica). They jump from foot-stomping sing-alongs to show-stopping a capella ballads to insightful political and storytelling songs.

A folk collective headed by songwriters Adrian Glynn and Brendan McLeod, the band has toured extensively through Canada, Western Europe, and the UK. They’re joined by banjo player Chris Suen (Viper Central) and violinist Carly Frey (The Coal Porters). Over the past twelve years, they’ve earned a reputation for unforgettable live shows, brimming with complex harmonies, infectious storytelling and top-notch musicianship.

Their most recent album, “The Promise of Strangers” was nominated for Canadian Folk and Western Canadian Music Awards and won Best Folk Album of 2019 from the German Music Critic’s Association. Their previous album, “Everything Will Happen”, spent ten weeks on the top ten Canadian folk charts, and earned them a support slot across Western Canada with Buffy Sainte-Marie and an appearance at UK’s Glastonbury Festival. Performance highlights include major folk festivals across Canada, headlining slots in overseas americana festivals, and a 2019 sold-out run across Germany.

“Despite their all-acoustic lineup, the Fugitives bring enough energy to the stage to light up a small city… a sound that’s like the missing link between Leonard Cohen and the Pogues.”— Georgia Straight
