Cape Breton’s Pretty Archie returns to Halifax (after their sold out Hanging On album release in 2018) to do show at The Carleton on Thursday, February 28th. Show time is 9 PM and advanced tickets are $20.
Pretty Archie is a Canadiana band from Cape Breton. Always jamming together growing up, the guys decided in 2012 to form a band and chose the name Pretty Archie after a local character known for playing with 2 strings outside shopping malls in any weather and not always (or ever) in key. They thought the name embodied the love of playing and performing music, as well as representing their hometown.
The band’s Sing Alongs & Love Songs, produced by Jamie Foulds, pushed the genre lines of Folk, Bluegrass, Country and Blues creating a uniquely Pretty Archie sound. Their 2015 album, North End Sky and 2013’s Steel City were also nominated for multiple awards on the East Coast.
Pretty Archie’s genuine, heartfelt writing connects listeners with a saltwater perspective on modern living. Their fun-loving and at times heartbreaking music finds common ground in the melding of Country, Folk, Bluegrass and Blues. Their unique sound and energetic shows leave listeners with a lasting memory.
