The first Stage North show of the season features Elliott Brood, a dynamic Canadian roots rock band from Hamilton, coming to the Legacy Centre Thursday September 27 at 7:30.
Hamilton’s Elliott Brood has been making a name for itself for the past 15 years, with six albums and a Juno for Roots/Traditional Group of the Year to their credit. Banjos and mandolins and foot stomping tunes make you think bluegrass. Steely acoustic guitar provides a gritty, rocky sound while the lyrics are more in the alt-country folk-rock vein. Whatever it is, it’s at times lively and fun, while at others, mellow and melodic. The tunes are catchy and the lyrics are memorable. They put on a fun and lively performance and there will definitely be a dance floor set up!
Richard Woodman and Will O’Donnell will open for the band. There will be snacks and bar service but no full meal service at this show.
