The Bros. Landreth (CAN)

Saturday 25 of August: Bolero: 19:15
Music Programme 2018

During their visit to Tønder festival in 2015, they owned Tent 2 with a wicked concert. Now on their way back to Tønder with americana, blues and roots rock, The Bros. Landreth, from Winnipeg in Canada, are among the bands that define pure roots rock. If your taste runs to John Hiatt, Allman Brothers Band, Little Feat and Bonnie Raitt, then The Bros. Landreth are just the thing for you. Joey Landreth’s singing has a raw blues feel, and his slide guitar points us in the direction of Lowell George and Derek Trucks. His brother Dave plays bass, Ariel Posen is on guitar and lap steel, and Ryan ‘Rhino’ Voth is at the drums. Their debut album Let It Lie won a Juno Award (Canada) for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year in 2015. A new album is on the stocks.

Alongside his band work, Joey Landreth has a solo career as a songwriter and outstanding slide guitarist. His solo album Whiskey came out in 2016 and he has toured extensively on his own. Tønder Festival audiences will not miss out: Joey Landreth is giving a solo concert over and above his appearances with the whole Bros.Landreth band. Their only Danish festival appearance in 2018.
