Fish & Bird are returning to their (somewhat) home-town of Victoria BC to share their new album 'Something in the Ether' with you!
This band has been touring relentlessly over the last five years, while still finding time to record multiple great albums at Violin player Adam Iredale-Gray's home studio on Mayne Island. Something in the Ether is no exception to the rule Fish & Bird has been following of putting out quality recordings of song's that are musically complex while remaining accessible, and lyrically insightful without losing sight of the humour in the world.
They are excited to be sharing the stage with long time friends and peers, Victoria's most innovative band in the folk scene, West My Friend:

Since West My Friend was conceived in a Victoria café in 2009, they’ve emerged as a unique voice in the city’s music scene. Described as everything from indie-roots to chamber-folk, their acoustic blend of instruments and four-part harmonies challenges the conventions of popular music to create a performance that is both engaging and innovative. Songs are created through a collaborative process: well-crafted and clever lyrics, acrobatic mandolin riffs, flawless bass lines, and richly textured accordion combine as every member brings forward their own ideas and experiences.

Simple is safe, but complex is fiery, intricate, and ultimately more rewarding. Steep... more info
