As part of our 10th anniversary celebrations, The Carleton is thrilled to welcome old regulars The Stanfields back to its stage for a very special show on Wednesday, May 30th. Show time is 8 PM and tickets are $35.
As fans of The Stanfields‘ dynamic live show know, they bring a message, and bring the noise. “Our thing has always been, since day one as a band, trying to find that sweet spot where entertainment and art can co-exist,” says lead singer and songwriter, Jon Landry.
You’d never call The Stanfields traditional, but being from Nova Scotia, they can’t help soaking up those influences, especially the storytelling. “It’s in my blood,” confirms Landry. “Somebody told me that I sound like I write songs from 100 years ago, which is a fantastic compliment for my sake. John Prine has been my hero since I was a kid, but I also liked Nirvana.”
The Stanfields’ latest album is Limboland and it was released at the end of March. It’s a great forward step in the evolution of one of the East Coast’s best, and hardest working, bands.
