Tri-County Vanguard - - NEWS - AMANDA DOUCETTE DIGBYCOURIER.CA

Dono­van Thorim­bert and Jesse Ens will take the stage at the Syd­ney Street Pub in Digby on May 16.

With tra­di­tional vo­cals, a fivestring clawham­mer banjo and a guitar, the artists will take the au­di­ence back in time, tour­ing the coun­try and blues of the 1920s and 30s.

“(The show will) take au­di­ences back to the old times, when there were no cells phones to check and mu­sic was the en­ter­tain­ment of the day,” Thorim­bert said in a press re­lease.

The mu­si­cian ap­pre­ci­ates the styles of Mis­sis­sippi John Hurt and Dock Boggs.

“I like to ex­plore, and I love the East Coast, so I’m re­ally ex­cited about com­ing to Digby,” he said.

Thorim­bert vis­ited the Mar­itimes for the first time in 2014 and since then, he’s been look­ing for­ward to com­ing back and per­form­ing.

He and Ens are tak­ing part in their first East­ern Cana­dian tour to­gether.

Thorim­bert has been play­ing the five-string clawham­mer banjo for the last 10 years and Ens has a de­gree in mu­sic. Both artists are orig­i­nally from Saskatchewan but are liv­ing in Que­bec.

The con­cert is from 6-8 p.m. at the Syd­ney Street Pub on May 16 and it’s free. The pair is also mak­ing stops in Antigo­nish and Hal­i­fax.
