Leaf Rapids has a busy month ahead. Fresh from front woman Keri Latimer's spine-tingling theremin performance at the WSO's New Music Festival, she'll hit the stage at the Times Change(d) for Those Memories: A tribute to Dolly, Linda, and Emmylou, along with Jess Reimer and Vanessa Kuzina. Latimer will then head to Portage la Prairie's Hot Blizzard Folk Festival with husband and bandmade Devin Latimer on February 7 before hitting the road south for a coveted showcase spot at Folk Alliance International in Kansas City. The lauded alt.folk act will close off the month at the West End Cultural Centre with Edmonton's Post Script on February 26. Stay tuned for Keri Latimer's score for an upcoming Manitoba-made feature film by Shelagh Carter called Before Anything You Say. In the meantime, we've got Leaf Rapids' "Vulture Lullaby" for you off the band's debut album on Black Hen Music, Lucky Stars. Get it and go out and catch Latimer and Leaf Rapids live.
