Cold Specks is 23-year-old Al Spx from Etobicoke, ON, Canada. Already making critical waves in the U.K., with television performances on Later With Jools Holland and British media such as The Guardian, The Times, NME and more weighing in on the recent U.K. release of "Holland", Cold Specks is now ready to release her music here at home.
Describing her sound as "Doom Soul", Cold Specks' music is steeped in the musical traditions of the Deep South. No wonder then that Al cites the Lomax Field Recordings and James Carr as influences along with Bill Callahan and Tom Waits. With a voice that evokes the 'spirit feel' of Mahalia Jackson and the visceral tones of Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Cold Specks' sparse arrangements and chain gang rhythms stop you dead in your tracks.
FESTIVAL BY THE MARSH (FBTM) PRESENTS:
The Stacy Read Band
Friday, Aug. 10, at George's Roadhouse, Sackville, NB
Tickets are $10 at Tidewater Books
Introduced to the fiddle at an early age, Stacey Read said she was given plenty of opportunities to perform during her years when she was being taught by fiddling greats Ivan and Vivian Hicks. Read will be performing music from her first solo album in more than 12 years as well as other songs.
Entitled Not Forgotten, her recent CD is a tribute album that not only honours the old-time Canadian fiddling greats but is also in memory of her mother, Nancy, who passed away this past January. The album, which was recorded at local musician Ray Legere’s studio in April, features a mix of old-time fiddling tunes blended with several of her own original tunes, many of which were written last fall during her mother’s illness.
FBTM AND TBS (TANTRAMARSH BLUES SOCIETY) PRESENT:
Saturday, Aug. 11, at 8 PM (please note the early start time)
Garrett Mason and the Keight Hallet Band
George's Roadhouse, Sackville, NB
Tickets are $12 in advance (at Ducky's), and $15 at the door
In order to accommodate Garrett's request to be able to play the late show at the Dutch Mason Blues Festival in Truro, NS, we are starting our show early, at 8 PM...so come early and prepare yourself for a hot evening of music and dancing...we promise you will not be disappointed, as George's is one of Garrett's favourite places to play in the Maritimes.
