Cuff the Duke (Alt Rock / Country), Jenn Grant (Pop/Folk, Singer/Songwriter)
A pair of JUNO-nominated acts headline an indy double-bill at a well-known Kelowna hot spot now opening its doors to more live music.
Cuff the Duke and Jenn Grant bring their national tour to Kelowna's Sapphire Nightclub on Wed., Oct. 17 for a 9 p.m. show. Both were nominated for a Juno Award in this year’s Adult Alternative Album of the Year category, a contest won by Feist and her album, Metals.
Grant released her third album, The Beautiful Wild, on Sept. 25. The East Coast nightingale says her new record “follows love’s twisted, tangled path deep into the heart’s jungle.” She teams up with Cuff the Duke fresh off a North American tour opening for Kathleen Edwards.
Cuff the Duke's new album, Union, went on sale Oct. 2. It's the second half of a two-part album project by the alt-country band that started with the release of Morning Comes late last year. “Morning Comes was more acoustic-based,” says the band's Wayne Petti. “This album is more electric-based.”
The band is no stranger to the Okanagan. They drew a large crowd on their 2010 visit to Kelowna and put on a thrilling main stage show at this summer's Roots and Blues Festival in Salmon Arm.
Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door.
