Description

Time: 9 p.m.
Cover: by Donation

Eamon McGrath returns to Lethbridge on his Freedom Winter 2020 tour! Currently based in Toronto, McGrath is one of Canada's most prolific and hard-touring songwriters. Lethbridge-based folk rock band Starpainter will open the night. Come spend your Friday night with us!


*** EAMON MCGRATH ***

With over 300 songs written and recorded, album of the year credits, and multiple continent-spanning tours, Eamon McGrath has developed a body of work that could rival that of any artist 15 years his senior. This is the house that punk rock built: a fierce DIY attitude and constantly-changing style has guided McGrath across the globe on countless tours, stories from which have been cultivated in innumerable journal entries and song lyrics. He is based in Toronto, Ontario.

With over 100,000 kilometres of highway, railroad and sky behind him, McGrath continues to blaze an impassioned trail of music that finds a sound and voice somewhere between punk rock, country, folk and rock and roll. Taking him to locations as geographically diverse as Reykjavik, Palma de Majorca, Warsaw, and everywhere in between, McGrath and his guitar represent a new dawn of singer-songwriting that's injected with the raw, fierce energy of punk rock: not in the sense of an acoustic performer hollering at the top of his lungs to simulate the energy of a full band, but instead something more rooted in a passionate commitment to your craft and a blind and zealous determination to your vision, wrapped in a sonic texture as rough as the road itself.

*** STARPAINTER ***

Starpainter is an Alberta-based folk rock band. Melodic, lyrically-focused songs are the heart and soul of the band, with instrumental detours and low-key desert psychedelia adding colour. They have a guitar-heavy live show, showcasing strong songwriting and an affinity for late-60s country rock tones. Their work is genuine. (Formerly known as The Utilities.)
