e return to the music this week with The Talented True-badour, Gordie Tentrees. After seeing him perform in another venue in Chilliwack 4 years ago I've planned on having him upstairs at Bozzini's.

 

He sings heartfelt songs that you can, and want to listen to. Gordie is a songwriters songwriter - in other words the perfect artist for our intimate little room and best crowd of music lovers in the country.

He'll be performing solo in support of his fifth and latest album, North Country Heart which is twelve swampy country folk blues songs layered with the storied delivery of a Texas word slinger from the north filled with thematic tales of life in the Yukon.

Where: Bozzini's Italian Restaurant  upstairs lounge - 45739 Hocking Avenue, Chilliwack 604-792-0744.

When: Tuesday 8 p.m.

Here's some reviews - Hope you'll join us for a great night!

 

“This is the fifth album by a man who really should be a household name thanks to the excellence of his vocal and writing skills and his ability to create atmospheres and arrangements perfectly suited to his writing, something not all great singer songwriters are able to master” AMERICANA ROOTS UK

 

“Tentrees has created a cohesive collection of images and sounds that hits emotional marks without resorting to manipulation. Heard without advance warning, one could be convinced that this is the new Corb Lund or Hayes Carll album and not be a bit disappointed” FERVOR COULEE PRESS

 

“With North Country Heart, Gordie Tentrees has joined an increasingly long list of Canadians who are, somewhat strangely, making some of the most honest Americana music today” POP MATTERS

 

“Tentrees delivery is so relaxed and unpretentious its impossible to not get drawn into his world, sounding like a young John Prine ” NO DEPRESSION

 

“In the rough cut vein of Kelly Joe Phelps or Fred Eaglesmith, Tentrees is gifted” GLOBE & MAIL

 

“These songs are as real and dusty as any unpaved roads I’ve ever been on. I’m thinkin’ the Yukon might have a lot in common with Texas.” GURF MORLIX
