Sault Ste. Marie based culture collective, Ears and Eyes, are excited to announce that Saskatoon folk music outfit Gunner & Smith will take the stage at Cafe Natura on Tuesday, November 18th for an intimate concert while they make their way across Canada in support of their full length release, He Once Was A Good Man. The band kicked off the tour with a string of Western Canadian dates on October 8th in Saskatoon, taking the band to Alberta and BC and back, before heading out to as far east as Montreal in November.
A press release states that "there have been so many high lights for the band in 2014 that lead singer Geoff Smith had a hard time coming up with just one". "Playing Folk Alliance International in Kansas City was amazing… playing the Great Heart Festival in Bellwoods Park unplugged during NXNE would have to be one of the most fun shows we have gotten to play this year."
Tickets for the concert are priced at $10.00 and can be purchased at the door the night of the show.
Doors open at 7:00 pm , show at 7:30 pm.
As well as Gunner & Smith, local up and coming artists Jesse Merineau and ALDOUS (Nick Luck) will be sharing opening sets.
Ears and Eyes have been giving opportunity to young Sault Ste. Marie artists to play beside touring acts at Cafe Natura (and other venues) for over a year now. As well as booking and organizing concerts, Ears and Eyes serves as resource for the underground culture community in Sault Ste. Marie.
