CURRENT SWELL (B.C.)
Fri Aug 14, 10:30 PM, TD Main Stage
Sat Aug 15, 3:00 PM Shade Stage Gold and In the Way (Acoustic Grateful Dead Set)
Touring worldwide from Australia to Brazil to the U.S. there’s no question Current Swell is one of British Columbia’s and Canada’s finest musical exports.
Building a seriously solid and loyal fan base with relentless touring and an impressive early recording output, So I Say (2005), Trust Us Now (2007), and Protect Your Own (2009), Current Swell has been on the receiving end of international raves for Long Time Ago (2011) and Ulysses which was released just last year. Coming off two sold-out shows at the Commodore Ballroom with Cat Power and looking at the anticipation of major festivals, including the Winnipeg Folk Festival, Ottawa Blues Fest and Squamish, Current Swell should be a musical tidal wave by the time the band hits Salmon Arm Roots and Blues.
