Singing vibrant duets, writing deadly songs, playing handmade banjos and loving old acoustic guitars, Pharis & Jason Romero have a classic story. When a matchmaker, some scratchy old records, and a custom banjo led to their meeting in 2007, they quickly knew they were in for the long haul. They've since released five records - three as a duo - and toured across North America and the UK. They've been featured on NPR Music, CBC, BBC, Folk Alley, and many more, and have performed on A Prairie Home Companion and CBC's The Vinyl Cafe. They are passionate teachers and believers in many things folk, and their heartbreakingly harmonic live show is an ever-evolving and never-ending quest for good songs and beautiful sounds.
A Wanderer I'll Stay (2015) is the latest in a string of critically acclaimed, award-winning albums from the duo. Raising a family while developing an ever-growing demand for custom J. Romero Banjos, Pharis and Jason have made time to carve out new songs - heartbreak to wilderness dwellers, gourd banjo instrumentals to hopeful refrains - and put their singularly recognizable stamp on old songs. Called "sublime" (NPR) and "brilliant" (BBC), it was nominated for a Juno Award, an International Folk Music Award and four Canadian Folk Music Awards, while the title track was 2015's #1 most-played song on the Folk-DJ Charts. Pharis & Jason's releases continue to attract audiences and radio play globally.
Food and beverages will also be available at the performance.<< Back to full event listing
