Concert: Edgar Breau + Christopher Roberts, Sat April 28

Comments Off on Concert: Edgar Breau + Christopher Roberts, Sat April 28

edgar_breau_656B.jpgSaturday April 28 at 8 pm, $5. A double solo concert by two fine singer-songwriters: Edgar Breau and Christopher Roberts.
Edgar Breau
brings us his new folky-pop-roots CD Patches of Blue. Here is a review from Hamilton Blues Lover: “One thing you won’t find a lot of on Edgar Breau’s latest CD, patches of blue is repetition. The local singer/songwriter covers a whole lot of ground in just 12 songs. While mainly known as a member of the proto-punk/psych band, Simply Saucer, his solo endeavors are more on the rootsier side. Edgar explores all aspects of the genre: folk, country, blues, celtic, and much more. Every single song has a unique spirit. Highlights include the trippy title track, the funky One Kind of Love, the wonderfully folky Dreams of Jack Kerouac, and the island sounds of Maria the Sea and the Sun.” Christopher_Roberts.jpgMore about Edgar: http://auteurresearch.tumblr.com/edgarbreau  http://www.babysue.com/2012-March-LMNOP-Reviews.html#anchor471983

Christopher Roberts (of Modern Field Recordings) is the other half of the double bill, bringing us his original solo take on the world. http://music.cbc.ca/#/bands/modern-field-recordings
