Old Whiskey Road @ RBC Ottawa Bluesfest
Lebreton Flats, Ottawa
Old Whiskey Road is a Canadian band that "plays like they're cranking out tunes for a saloon full of rowdy gunslingers". Led by front-man Dave Morrow and featuring the distinctive harmonies of Kristine St-Pierre, the band's combination of country-folk gives them a unique sound that is at times soft and sorrowful, at times wild and gritty, but always reminiscent of simpler times.
The band released it's first full-length LP 'Welcome Home' in 2013. The band's second full-l ength LP 'Under the Neon Lights' was recorded and produced at Pebble Studios by Gareth Auden-Hole and released in December 2015.
In 2016, the band received their first Canadian Folk Music Award nomination in the 'Emerging Artist' category.
