Folk-rock singer-songwriter Leah Barley and blues-rock guitarist-singer-songwriter Caroline Allatt are hitting the road together for a fast and furious two day road trip filled with music that will blow your mind and fire up your soul.
Vancouver based Folk-Rock CBC Music JUNOfest (2018) and CBC Vancouver Musical Nooners (2017 & 2016) performer Leah Barley was born in Saskatchewan, raised in Ontario, and fell in love with Bluegrass and Old Time Country when she moved to Canmore, Alberta in her early twenties. She bought herself a banjo and was writing and performing within two months.
Since then she’s been accredited as The Banjo Reserve featured artist in February 2019, has recorded three EPs (Come Home 2016, Close Your Eyes 2014, Fly Away 2012), toured throughout parts of Canada, and performed at the Chilliwack Bluegrass Festival (with the Spillionaires 2017), Woodstove Festival (2016), and at the Whiskey a Go Go and Hotel Café in L.A (with the Wayward Hearts, 2015).
Leah brings a raw and dynamic performance that captivates any audience with beautiful tones and a ridiculous range that will make your hair stand on end.
Engaging and transformative on stage, the blues-rock guitarist-singer-songwriter Caroline Allatt has sparked up energy throughout BC and the Yukon in the past year with her fearless performances where she expresses a fire within her on stage. Her approach comes from a place of spontaneity and self-love. Allatt’s hook-laden sound has been linked to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Janis Joplin, and Bonnie Raitt.
