Music Programme 2018
In 2015, Tønder Festival’s audience had the pleasure of hearing the Canadian band The Bros. Landreth, who return in 2018. Also this year, we will hear solo concerts by Joey Landreth, the group’s guitarist, singer and frontman. This 29 year-old from Winnipeg has many strings to his bow: he is a virtuoso on slide guitar, a fine singer and a talented songwriter. His style is blues and americana, and his slide guitar playing is reminiscent of Lowell George, Derek Trucks and Bonnie Raitt. The latter has praised The Bros. Landreth very highly, calling Joey Landreth’s guitar playing “killer slide”. Besides playing with the band, Joey Landreth has a solo career, and released the album Whiskey in 2016.
The recordings were made in his home town of Winnipeg, which Joey Landreth described in an interview for the website Songfacts as a fairly small town with a strong and productive music scene, where everybody knows each other. This makes for quality and creativity in the music. His only Danish festival concert in 2018, and that goes for The Bros. Landreth, too.
