The Once closes out Granville Green

Cape Breton Post - - Arts / Entertainment -

Granville Green will hold its 2017 sea­son fi­nale con­cert on Sun­day with one of Canada’s hottest bands.

The Once is a mod­ern in­die folk trio from New­found­land. The group has col­lected a trio of Cana­dian Folk Mu­sic Awards, nu­mer­ous ECMA awards, was named artist of the year by the New­found­land and Labrador Arts Coun­cil. They have earned two Juno nom­i­na­tions for best roots/tra­di­tional al­bum, the most re­cent in 2014 for “De­par­tures.” They are best known for their haunt­ing in­ter­pre­ta­tions of tra­di­tional mu­sic. The Once’s new­est EP, “We Win Some We Lose,” en­cap­su­lates the trio’s new­found artis­tic free­dom and song­writ­ing voice.

With their folk roots still firmly in hand, mem­bers have em­braced a dis­tinctly mod­ern sound by the in­clu­sion of drums and per­cus­sion, elec­tric guitars and sweep­ing key­boards.

This week’s spe­cial guest is De­var­row, a crit­i­cally ac­claimed folk/pop singer­song­writer from New Brunswick.

The con­cert be­gins at 7 p.m. and con­cert­go­ers are en­cour­aged to bring blan­kets and chairs for com­fort. In case of in­clement weather, the con­cert will be held at the Port Hawkes­bury Civic Cen­tre.
