Thursday, June 19th, 2017 Doors: 7:00 pm / Show: 8:00 pm Brick and Mortar Music Hall, San Francisco, CA $8 ADV / $10 DOS / Age 21 And Up Crow and the Canyon "The joy with which the band plays is palpable, both live and on record, and one only needs to take a gander at the miles-wide smiles of both the group on stage and the audience to know this music is affecting people on a very real level." - Donovan Farley, Jambase Although the band has only been playing together since 2014, Crow and the Canyon sound like a band of age-old collaborators and friends. Their heartfelt yet cerebral lyrics, soaring vocals, and impressive instrumentals are endlessly listenable, while also remaining inventive and interesting. Their debut album, Leaving Soon, is a refreshingly contemplative take on high-spirited Americana songwriting which rewards repeated listening, and weaves back and forth between precise bluegrass, heartland acoustic folk, and bluesy country. The result is a series of songs that sound just as natural on a front porch in the heat of summer, in a dimly lit basement pub in the dead of winter or rollicking on a big festival stage. Their charismatic, engaging performances have garnered them a beloved reputation that keeps music lovers returning time and time again. The Good Bad "Hailing from San Francisco CA, The Good Bad have been a part of the exploding newgrass/bluegrass scene on the west coast since 2010.
