Whitehorse

Whitehorse Sat. Nov 9 8pm $45/53

Since their debut in 2011, Whitehorse has evolved from magnetic folk duo to full-blown rock band. Together, Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland’s searing Americana noir sensibility is distinguished by guitar wizardry (and instantly recognizable tone) and magnetic harmonies.  Now, the JUNO Award winning duo Whitehorse return to the early days of electric blues with The Northern South Vol. 2, the second instalment of a project that melds the grooves and melodies of the original selections with the band’s steamy, swampy, squalling approach. www.whitehorsemusic.ca Presented by Meaford Hall
