Cape Breton’s Pretty Archie return to Halifax to celebrate the release of a new album – Hanging On – with a show at The Carleton on Thursday, September 13th. Show time is 9 PM and advanced tickets are $20 or you can pony up $25 at the door.
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.
