Ontario-based roots duo The Brights return to B.C. for a late summer tour, which includes Eric Bibb’s songwriting workshop on Gabriola Island.
The duo will participate in the workshop at The Haven, followed by a series of house concerts before performing for the public in Nanaimo at the Red Willow Coffeehouse.
The duo describes their music as roots, tinged with gospel, country and blues, accompanied by guitar and cello.
That combines with Hawaiian king, accordion, mandolin, cajon, and whatever new sounds have recently tickled their fancy. The Brights offer original songs in an easy going, timeless style, equally at home in kitchen party or concert hall.
The Brights shared their rootsy musical stylings and playful banter with audiences across Canada.
They perform Sept. 9, 7 p.m., at Red Willow, located at Hope Lutheran Church, 2174 Departure Bay Rd.
Tickets $5. Please call 250-245-4659 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
