Leathan Milne and Marin Patenaude will close out this winter’s Safety Meeting concert series on Friday, May 22.
“We’ll be heading out like a lamb for the season, with a couple of fantastic folk-ish artists,” says event promoter Brandon Hoffman.
Marin will be opening the night with a solo set of her sultry acoustic blues folk repertoire.
He says Leathan Milne is bringing the whole band, meshing lush strings with subtle percussion and effects-laden guitars.
Leathan’s music takes a modern folk songwriting sentiment a-la Wilco and Gregory Alan Isakov, and blends it with rich soundscape of instruments to make something really beautiful and unique, Hoffman says.
Tickets are available at Red Shreds for the suggested price of $10.
Advance tickets for Arts on the Fly this July in Horsefly will also be available at the May 22 concert and are also available at The Bean Counter in Williams Lake and Clarkes General Store in Horsefly.
The Safety Meeting concert series is supported by City of Williams Lake and the Cariboo Regional District through the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society.
Hoffman says the last show with Sober Becky and Black Spruce Bog was a rip roaring success with Sober Becky setting the vibe with her brand of “quirk punk” putting everyone in a great mood for two full sets with Black Spruce Bog that had the crowd up on their feet the whole time.
