Dynamic folk/roots duo to record live album throughout 15 dates this Fall
Yukon road warrior Gordie Tentrees and Manitoba alchemist Jaxon Haldane hit Western Canada to record Road Paint, a new album that will be recorded live at select venues with Alberta-based engineer Scott Franchuk (Corb Lund, The Swiftys) and featuring co-writes with Haldane/ Tentrees (Armand, Lester, Junior) and Fred Eaglesmith/Tentrees (Craft Beards & Man Buns). After two years of performing in Europe, UK, and Australia they return home for 15 concert dates featuring 9 instruments, brotherly harmonies, and masterful storytelling.
Gordie Tentrees is a Yukon-based, Ontario raised farm boy, golden glove boxer, school teacher and youth counsellor turned folk artist. Fresh off his 200-date world tour of Europe, Australia, UK & Ireland, Tentrees was a feature performance at Celtic Connections (Glasgow, Scotland), and National Folk Festival in Canberra, Australia. His recent recording, Less Is More, was the top 10 record and artist from North America (April-May 2016) on the Folk/Roots radio International charts.
Jaxon Haldane (former bandleader of legendary punk/bluegrass band The D Rangers) reveres tradition while retaining a distinct modernism. His ability to combine the visceral intensity of punk rock or Dixieland, with the soul-stirring emotion of vintage country and blues is emboldened by his songwriting.
