The Yukon comes to Halifax when Gordie Tentrees, along with Jaxon Haldane, return to The Carleton on Thursday, November 21st. Show time is 9 PM and tickets are only $12 advanced or $15 at the door. These are very talented dudes!
Master storyteller and multi-instrumental performer GORDIE TENTREES has arrived.
His sixth album “Less is More” brings together his knack for melody with his amazing ability to hold an audience in the palm of his hands (both during and between songs) and is a deeply personal, moving, melodic and sometimes humorous look at life through the eyes of a unique and infectious person-ality. Yukon based, Ontario raised, farm boy, golden glove boxer, school teacher, youth counsellor turned folk artist, Tentrees has released 6 records touring North America, UK, Australia and Europe up to 200 concerts each year, nominated for Western Canadian Music Awards, International Song Competitions and toured with Kelly Joe Phelps, Fred Eaglesmith, Steve Poltz and Mary Gauthier.
He offers the perfect example with Less is More, presenting an incredible soundtrack to a storied past with songs of triumph, heartache and redemption. Produced by Juno award winner Bob Hamilton, who also contributes textured beauty with tasteful tones, the album features Tentrees’ blend of folk, roots and blues sounds on 11 tracks including “Camelot Hotel“, written by Mary Gauthier. Tentrees plays dobro, guitar, harmonica, with stellar accompaniment from Aiden Tentrees on upright bass & Fabian Brook on guitar and fiddle. The album also includes guest appearances by Patrick Hamilton, Annie Avery, Lonnie Powell and the voice of east coast darling, 2015 Juno winner Catherine MacLellan.
