The Roxy Theatre, – November 6, 2015 – Show starts at: 08:00 PM
One of Barrie’s favourite music acts, THE STRUMBELLAS, will be performing in Barrie on Friday, Nov. 6, 2015. Presented by Inside the Music, the indie country-folk group that won a Juno Award for Best Folk Album will be performing at The Roxy theatre (formerly The Roxx) in downtown Barrie with openers ELI & THE STRAW MAN and HARPACASH & THE MORALS.
Since the release of their eponymous EP in 2009, The Strumbellas have been gaining a following across Canada for their foot-stomping, hand-clappin’, high energy live shows. Barrie is no exception; the band’s last few shows downtown have sold out. The band’s first full-length album, ‘My Father And The Hunter,’ earned them their first Juno nomination and their most recent release, ‘We Still Move On Dance Floors’, won them the Juno Award for Best Folk Album as well as critical raves across the country. The band is getting ready to release their third album so expect to hear some new tunes.
Opening for them are indie roots band Eli & The Straw Man, a new musical project from the Niagara region fronted by songwriter, lead vocalist, and guitarist, Eli Maiuri. Also on the bill is local hero HarpAcash & the Morals, a 4-piece indie folk band from Barrie currently recording with Cowboy Junkies frontman Michael Timmins.
Tickets for The Strumbellas are on sale now and can be purchased at Tropical North, 42 Dunlop St. E., or online at ticketfly.com or insidethemusic.ca. Early bird tickets only $20.00 before Oct. 30.
