Whitehorse with special guests

The Salmon Arm Folk Music Society is proud to present Juno Award winners Whitehorse at Song Sparrow Hall

With two full-length albums released in 2021 and another ready to hit shelves later this year, Whitehorse has a legion of fresh folk tracks lined up to rock Salmon Arm’s Song Sparrow Hall Oct. 7, 2022, in an licensed/all-ages performance .

With a sound they call steamy, swampy and squalling, Whitehorse’s guitar-heavy and harmony-rich tracks earned the duo the 2016 JUNO Adult Alternative Album of the Year Award for Leave No Bridge Unburned and a 2012 Hamilton Music Award for The Fate of the World Depends on This Kiss.

The multi-award-winners bring their disco-twirling and hard riffing tales from 2021’s Strike Me Down to Salmon Arm. Their second album of 2021 following the release of Modern Love, Strike Me Down marks a new exploration for the band full of shredding guitars and spaced-out vocal layering.

Whitehorse’s prolific streak continues with both the full-length release of I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying and Vol. 3 of their popular The Northern South EP later this year.

“It’s an exciting year for Whitehorse and fans of Canadian music. From coast to coast, artists have spent the past two years creating and are hungry to get back on the road,” says Tobin. “We’re thrilled to welcome Whitehorse to Salmon Arm for a powerful night of musical storytelling.”

Whitehorse’s performance follows the Salmon Arm Folk Music Society’s 30th annual ROOTSandBLUES Festival. The landmark event brings music icons Tom Cochrane, Jann Arden, Antibalas, Ruthie Foster and more to the Salmon Arm Fairgrounds Aug. 18-21.
