On Friday, April 13th, the Live Wire Music Series is pleased to present New Country Rehab, one of the most exciting alt-country bands in Canada right now, fresh from their recent blockbuster European tour, where wowed critics compared them to The Band, Mumford and Sons, and even The Allman Brothers.
Take Canada’s hottest fiddle player, a guitarist who evokes Tom Morello and Kevin Breit, a percussionist who grooves on sawblades as readily as he does cookie sheets, mix together with one of the most versatile double bass players in Canada and you get New Country Rehab. With John Showman, James Robertson, Roman Tome’ and Ben Whiteley, the band’s unique outlaw indie country sound channels Hank Williams Sr. as much as Arcade Fire to create a spectacularly exciting new music.

Opening for New Country Rehab will be Sheesham and Lotus, the enormously entertaining purveyors of old-time American music, whose multi-instrumental shows have gained them a legion of fans across Canada.
As I said, it’s going to be a fantastic night, so see you at the music!
