Red Moon Road

Acoustic, Folk, Roots

“The end of their show is a bittersweet experience – part of you wants to hear more music and the other part wants to rush to the stage and meet the band’’ - Julien Desaulniers, Artistic Producer, Festival du Voyageur

The path towards the new Red Moon Road album Sorrows and Glories began with a shattered leg, a cancelled tour and a long 2000 km trip home. Luckily, the Winnipeg folk trio is known for surviving adversity, spinning stories into songs and all the while breaking hearts with their stunning musicianship.

Red Moon Road, formed in 2012 by Daniel Jordan, Sheena Rattai and Daniel Peloquin-Hopfner, are now prepared to move forward.  Fully healed, home from tours across Europe and North America and with their new album in hand, this is a group more dedicated than ever. They are richer for their experiences, both painful and promising. Sorrows and Glories is a collaboration with producer/engineer and Juno recipient, David Travers-Smith (Wailin’ Jennys, Ruth Moody) and award winning producer-player Murray Pulver (Doc Walker, Steve Bell). The album delivers the band’s finest songwriting to date and spans a wide range of genres. From a Beatles-esque pop hit “Words of the Walls” musing the storied past of an iconic apartment block in their hometown, to“Beauty in These Broken Bones,” a full-on spiritual backed by a star-studded choir, the music carries the stories as compellingly as the lyrics.  

Live, Red Moon Road makes a much bigger sound than one would expect from a trio.  In an impressive, well-choreographed show they manage to incorporate impeccable three-part harmonies, a roots drum kit split entertainingly, but pragmatically, between two band members and an acoustic guitar cleverly rigged to also be a bass. A moustached man plays mandolin, lap steel, banjo and organ (often at the same time), and subtle technological wizardry whirls as the unmistakable soulful voice of one of Canada’s most talented singers floats above it all. Their serious instrumental ability is tempered by an infectious playfulness and makes a fine canvas on which to paint the band’s signature and masterful storytelling.
