The Bros. Landreth (CAN)

Roots rock and americana of the highest carat from a band who have built up a solid fan base in this country in recent years. The Bros. Landreth, from Winnipeg in Canada, played Tønder Festival in 2015 and 2018, and their front man Joey Landreth, guitar and vocal, has also appeared here on his own. His slide guitar play is first class, on a par with guitarists such as Derek Trucks, Ry Cooder and the late Lowell George. The band’s debut album Let It Lie caused a stir and won a Canadian JUNO Award in 2015. The Bros. Landreth toured intensively thereafter, among their number the guitarist and singer Ariel Posen, who appeared at Tønder Festival in his own name in 2023. The Covid 19 pandemic meant working from home for the band rather than touring the world. Joey Landreth and his brother Dave, on bass and vocal, retreated to their studio in Winnipeg, focusing on producing a new sound and new songs in a more laid-back style. The results can be heard on the album Come Morning from 2022. Today, The Bros. Landreth are still a band orbitting round the two brothers, though they consider the new Bros. Landreth a band reborn. Their only Danish festival in 2024.
