Unfortunately Diaphanie is under the weather and unable to make the show tomorrow at X-Cues Cafe & Lounge We wish her a speedy recovery.
The wonderful Frannie Klein has stepped up to help us out and it will still be a great night of music with Two Crows for Comfort and Bobby Dove
Frannie grew up on the shores of Lake Manitoba, in Bacon Ridge. She grew up tapping trees with her grandparents, ranching cows, dancing Pow wow and competing in fiddle competitions. Coming from a very musical family, Frannie found her voice in her mid teens where she picked up guitar and singing. She’s opened up for acts like Marty Stuart and Brett Kissel and Charlie Major.
Two Crows for Comfort
Two Crows for Comfort – a duo that had no intentions of playing anything more than an open mic here and there, and went by a different name anytime they hit the stage. Fast forward a few years and Two Crows (Erin Corbin and Cory Sulyma) have unintentionally created something that seems to work. In December 2018 the duo released their debut full-length album, ‘17 Feet’, with back-to-back sold out shows at the Handsome Daughter in Winnipeg.
Determined to keep the momentum going after the release of ‘17 Feet’, Two Crows continued playing countless shows to get through the harsh prairie winter. In summer, 2019, the duo was seen at countless festivals and even scored opportunities to open for the likes of Pokey Lafarge, Bruce Cockburn, and Ani DiFranco to name a few.
Back from touring Western Canada and still riding the wave of 2019, the duo’s biggest breakthrough came when they were named Roots Artist of the Year at the Manitoba Country Music Awards.
They hit the road again in early 2020 making stops throughout Ontario and Quebec before they hunkered down to record their latest album ‘Show Me Light’ which was released on March 25, 2021.
You can find their new album, ‘Show Me Light’ on all streaming platforms and Vinyl and CD copies are also available for purchase.
Bobby Dove has built a following across Canada and beyond. Born in Montreal, Quebec, Bobby has become known as one of the country’s most dedicated troubadours, crooning live audiences with heart-worn originals, and paying tribute to the golden age of Country music. Along the road, Bobby has worked with a number of legendary players, and shared stages with artists such as Mary Gauthier, Richard Thompson, Irish Mythen, The Sadies and JD Mcpherson. In 2019, Bobby spent a month in residency at the Banff Centre and has performed at a number of Canadian folk fests, including the Vancouver Folk Music Festival, Vancouver Island Music Fest and Brandon Folk Fest.
The West End Cultural Centre will continue to require that patrons wear facemasks and show proof of vaccination for all events in the venue.
We will continue to evaluate this policy as circumstances evolve.
