New Moon Folk Club presents Russell deCarle on Friday, November 15th - 7:30PM at St. Basil's Cultural Centre, 10819 71 Ave
Southern Soul with deep Country roots.
Russell deCarle Music
Famous internationally as lead singer and a founding member of multi-platinum, six-time Juno award winning country-roots group Prairie Oyster, Russell deCarle has spent the last decade focussed on his solo career.
Alone in this Crowd is his latest album. It’s a mix of southern soul and restrained balladry, with touches of jazz, blues, and old-school country. Russell’s songwriting has absorbed all those influences. Even more than his previous albums, it may surprise those who remember him from his country days with Prairie Oyster. The truth is, though, that Prairie Oyster was always more than a “country” band, and Russell’s warm, burnished and intimate voice has always honoured an eclectic range of songs.
That said; his love and appreciation for the roots of honky tonk and pure country music, as well as the classic country vocalists, the dramatic ballads of Roy Orbison, and the timeless sounds of the Everly Brothers, also remain evident in his songwriting and performance.
Tickets are $23, plus applicable service charges.
