Locals Roadside Scarecrow celebrate the release of their debut album, with the help of Corey Isenor and his band, with a show at The Carleton on Friday, January 31st. Show time is 9 PM and admission is $10 at the door.
Roadside Scarecrow are a Hell Town-based band playin’ old, gritty, dark country meets catchy, up-beat rock “n” roll! Formed in Halifax on September 9th, 2017. Founding members Adam Wood and Andrew Touesnard later recruited Bruce Manion in January 2018, Colin Boutilier in February 2018 and Jeff Brown would join in March of 2019 to complete the 5-piece line-up.
On ‘Absinthe & Smoke‘, Corey Isenor moves away from the country sound of his previous albums to focus on more of a roots– rock, folk-pop sound. Over the course of the ten tracks, the Nova Scotian songwriter vigilantly explores themes of youthful disenchantment, our existential place in the modern world, the passage of time, and – of course – romance.
