On Friday, Jan 28th The Co-Conspirators, a Quebec-based folk duo, will be performing a live show at the Earth Club Factory on Denman Island.
This duo performs a blend of folk, country, singer-songwriter, bluegrass, and general roots music, with heavy emphasis on vocal harmonies. They have been compared to such heavy-hitting vocal duos as Ian and Sylvia Tyson, Richard and Linda Thompson, and Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris.
They are currently on tour in support of their latest release, The Unreliable Narrators. The album has been called a masterful mix of fact and fiction folk storytelling, with bullet-proof harmonies. In the grand tradition of songs ripped from the headlines, it includes the first single, The Lonesome death of Elijah McClain, the story of a young black man from Aurora, Colorado who was murdered by police and paramedics in August of 2019.
Along with the 11 original songs (that cover such topics as loves first meeting, life on the road, and a range in emotions from joy to the bleakness of loss), there is a version of the classic song of resistance Bella Ciao, an Italian anti-fascist song from the 1930s.
Find The Co-Conspirators on Facebook, Spotify, Apple Music etc, or at their web-site at www.theco-conspirators.com.
The show at Earth Club Factory is a 6PM, and – weather permitting – will be in the exterior tent. A suggested donation of $15 at the door. Contact Earth Club Factory for a reservation.
