Hayes Carll to perform in East Kelowna

Texas singer/songwriter brings his Americana style to Kelowna.

The Kelowna Folk Club presents Hayes Carll, Feb. 28 at the East Kelowna Community Hall.

You saw him on Austin City limits, now see him live. Irreverent Texas singer-songwriter, Hayes Carll, and previous winner of the Americana Music Association Song of the Year award, is coming to Kelowna.

He is known for being committed to the truth and unafraid to skewer pomposity, hypocrisy and small-minded thinking. This troubadour has been the recipient of many critical accolades and rave reviews from Rolling Stone Magazine, to the Boston Globe, to the Washington Post.

“For fans of John Prine or Todd Snider, Carll is a familiar type—a mush-mouthed drawler who’s smarter about the beat than his shambling ways would make you think and funnier than s*** when he wants to be, which is often. He rocks as needed across a rowdy life-scape he describes pungently and sometimes ruefully.” (Blender Magazine)

Songs such as Another Like You, Bad Liver and a Broken Heart and She Left Me for Jesus are perfect examples of his unique point of view. This is pure Carll and he makes the most of it.

Shows in Miami and Steamboat Springs and other stops on this current tour have already sold out . Get your $25 cash only tickets at ABC Hobby & Games, Beadiful Arts, Bering Music Centres, Rosie’s Grape Stop or online at www.kelownafolkclub.ca.

Hayes Carll in concert 8 p.m. Feb. 28 at the East Kelowna Community Hall, 2704 East Kelowna Rd.
