Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

CANADA’S Stephen Fear­ing and North­ern Ire­land’s Andy White met at the Win­nipeg Folk Fes­ti­val 16 years ago, and an in­stant friend­ship was struck. That friend­ship turned into a mu­si­cal part­ner­ship and now, the duo known as Fear­ing & White is bring­ing its sopho­more al­bum, Tea and Con­fi­dences, to the West End Cul­tural Cen­tre on April 26. Tick­ets are $22 door or $17 in ad­vance at Tick­et­mas­ter, the WECC, Mu­sic Trader and Win­nipeg Folk Fes­ti­val Mu­sic Store. Halifax-based Fear­ing is a mul­ti­ple Juno win­ner who has be­come a fix­ture of the in­ter­na­tional roots and folk scene thanks to both his solo per­for­mances and his work with Blackie and the Rodeo Kings. Orig­i­nally from Belfast and based in Mel­bourne, Aus­tralia, White has been hon­oured with many of Ire­land’s most pres­ti­gious song­writ­ing awards. He has col­lab­o­rated with Peter Gabriel, Sinead O’Con­nor and Neil and Tim Finn. The pair has over 20 al­bums be­tween them, in­clud­ing their 2011 self-ti­tled de­but as Fear­ing & White.
