Description

Time: 8 p.m.

Cover: $10?

Viper Central can rip it up bluegrass style with sweet n’ crunchy harmonies and tight melodic breaks that’ll make your heart soar, your feet shuffle and your blood curdle! Canadian roots and the traditions of American Bluegrass, Métis, Country, Rockabilly and Old-time have influenced their ever evolving style. The songs reflect Canadian landscape and experiences and the result is entirely natural, effortless and delightfully original.The band consists of Kathleen Nisbet (Fiddle, vocals), Steven Charles ( Guitar, Banjo, Vocals) Tim Tweedale (steel guitars, Vocals), Mark Vaughan (Mandolin), and Patrick Metzger (Bass). Viper Central is a five-piece acoustic string-band that takes that “high lonesome sound” to new places. All five band members contribute original songs, but won’t hesitate to deliver up their take on an ages-old mournful waltz or bring the house down with a barn-burning bluegrass standard…

In 2008, the Vipers released their debut: The Devil Sure is Hard to Please. Blending instrumental prowess with innovative arrangements and creative vocal harmonies (doo-wop BGs such as those on “Down in West Virginia”, certainly find themselves comfortably outside the standard bluegrass practice), the album showcased the diverse songwriting talents of every member in the band and earned them a place among the bands to watch for in Canada’s thriving roots music scene.
