EVENT

The Lonesome Town Painters


The Lonesome Town Painters are Vancouver’s traditional bluegrass standard-bearers. Having gravitated toward each other in late-night local jam sessions, and by way of their mutual adoration for the Stanley Brothers, these fellas harken back to the raw and ragged edge of the genre. Their high-lonesome harmony singing and melodic instrumentation pay homage to bluegrass pioneers, while their spirited performances kick the dust off of golden-era favourites, and bristle with emotional honesty. Playing an eclectic mix of songs about love and loss, the odd original, and gospel, The Lonesome Town Painters would be equally at home in the barroom on Saturday night and the next morning’s church service, comfortable treading that fine line between perdition and salvation. ​
