Red Moon Road rising over Rossland in weekend tour

Winnipeg folk trio Red Moon Road will be in Rossland this Saturday night at Drift Izakaya.

Red Moon Road is a folk roots trio from Winnipeg that will be touring the area this weekend—in Rossland on Saturday— promoting their second album Tales from the Whiteshell.

The album was recorded in a solar powered cabin on a remote lake accessible by only ski or snowmobile. They even hauled a double bass and cello out on the back of a snowmobile. It was the culmination and celebration of three years of being a band and three weeks of intense creation.

Born in a storm on a wild Canadian lake, Red Moon Road came into its own on the trails between coast and coast.

They’re composed of two Daniels — Daniel Jordan and Daniel Peloquin-Hopfner — and Sheena Rattai. From living rooms to folk fest stages, the three have charmed fans with their lush and lively take on modern roots, peppered by stage banter.

The band performs with guitar, mandolin, banjo, snare and kick drum, glockenspiel and kazoo (all shared amongst the three performers).

They will be at the BlueBelle Bistro in Kaslo on Friday, Ellison’s Cafe in Nelson on Saturday, Drift Izakaya in Rossland on Saturday night, and Cedar Creek Cafe in Winlaw on Sunday.
