Ol’ Savannah  +Mind That Bird  +The Jimmyriggers

Ol' Savannah plumbs the depths of old-time mountain music, returning lovers of Americana to the porches of Piedmont, the sweaty dens of 19th-century Atlanta, and the sultry streets of New Orleans. Banjo and accordion back the gritty vocals of their songs of life, death and redemption.

Folk / Indie / Rock

Originaire de Montréal, cet ensemble de six musiciens offre de belles ballades country rock tzigane avec un petit côté folk mélancolique. Les chansons composées et livrées par Dylan Perkons, sont d'une grande profondeur. Avec sa voix unique et accompagné de Lisa Malachowski, Ari Swan au violon, Terry Boisvert à la guitare, Adrian Bergman à la basse et Rob DeKonick à la batterie, il livre un spectacle fort en émotions.

Mind That Bird was formed in the summer of 2009 when singer and guitarist Dylan Perkons wanted to explore what his long time love for crafting songs could evolve into with the help of other gifted and passionate people. After going through a few different line-up changes and exploring different sounds, the group settled on permanent members, Lisa Malachowski (keys, vocals), Adrian Bergman (bass, vocals), Terry Boisvert (guitars), and Rob De Konink (drums, percussion). With their honed direction the group entered the studio in the fall of 2011 to record their debut EP To the Temple, Through this City. The album is set for release this upcoming spring.

With clever song structures, crisp vocal harmonies and a healthy dose of twang, the Jimmyriggers deliver a potent mix of sounds that appeals to rock and roots fans alike.

Built around the songwriting talents of bass player David Pearce, guitarist Andre Kirchhoff, and the colour of maverick guitar slinger Kevin Moquin, the Montreal-based alt-country band counterpoint their full electric sound and powerful rhythms with strong melodic song structures. It is their trademark harmonies, however, that truly lend the band its unique sound, with Pearce’s clenched fist-in-velvet glove vulnerability dovetailing with Kirchhoff’s more honey-dipped tones.

“The Jimmyriggers – easily one of Montreal’s best bands – slam out a high-energy set." - Montreal Gazette
