The Once closes out Granville Green
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.
