CANADIAN folk trio Red Moon Road are kicking off their UK tour with a headline slot in the Black Country.

The Winnipeg band, known for surviving adversity, spinning stories into songs and, more often, breaking hearts with stunning musicianship, will bring their well-choreographed show to The Woodman Folk Club in Kingswinford on Friday, September 30.

Formed in 2012 by members Daniel Jordan, Sheena Rattai and Daniel Peloquin-Hopfner, the trio incorporate impeccable three-part harmonies, a roots drum kit split entertainingly but pragmatically between two band members and an acoustic guitar rigged to also be a bass.

They will perform songs from new album Sorrows and Glories, release date of October 16, which spans a wide range of genres, from a Beatles-esque pop song ‘Words of the Walls’, to ‘Beauty in These Broken Bones’, a full-on spiritual backed by a star-studded choir.

Entry to the 8.30pm gig at Ashwood Marina costs £10 for members and £11 for non-members.
