Its a dream team - vintage roots rockers and the new upstarts. The Strumbellas are riding the wave of their single Spirits and a new album due in April. Blue Rodeo continue to be the band that inspires folk of all folkways and the band folk of all folkways aspire to. The two are playing a double at Massey Hall Feb 18 and 19 and the General Motors Centre in Oshawa Feb 20. The bands have connections to the East GTA so expect the GM Centre gig to be a sort of homecoming.
