Saturday 11th April 2015 @ 7.30pm

RedMoon Road + Elliott Morris

At: Grayshott Village Hall, Headley Road,

GRAYSHOTT, Nr. Hindhead, Surrey GU26 6TZ

Red Moon Road are based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. They are Canada's most energetic and endearing folk trio and comprise: Sheena Rattai on lead vocals, and the two Daniels; Jordan and Peloquin-Hopfner, who between them play Mandolin, Banjo, Guitar, Delay Pedals and a beaten up old Bass Drum.

Their music is uplifting, lush and is a lively take on Modern Roots. They also go in for masterful story-telling and haunting three-part harmonies. Theirs is music made equally for fireplaces, festival stages and the luminous blue of a clear, Canadian night.

The three Red Moon Road musicians came together from very different musical backgrounds; Peloquin-Hopfner got his start as a progressive metal guy. Jordan trained as a big band jazz drummer and Rattai, who fronted a funk band before this, grew up singing in Church choirs, where she learned the mysteries of singing for the sacred and sublime.

It shouldn't surprise anyone then, when, in the middle of their acoustic set, the trio busts out a delay pedal, or a loop track to lock the rhythm down; after all these things are just lying around the stage, so they may as well use them, eh?

Elliott is a talented singer/songwriter/guitarist and despite his relatively young age, he has already had a wide range of stage experience.
