Event Archive - Vinyl Release ft: Belle Plaine, Blake Berglund

Sun. September 13th 2015 Railway Club (No Minors)
8:30pm - 11:00pm doors at 8:00pm
Prairie sweethearts Belle Plaine and Blake Berglund are releasing a collaborative double-single, gold-toned 7” vinyl record on September 4, 2015 supported by a double-bill tour from Regina to Victoria. The release pays homage to fellow Saskatchewan songwriter Zachary Lucky. The couple recorded two tracks from Lucky’s back catalogue: “Town to Town” (radio release August 4, 2015) and “Saskatchewan”. All 298 copies of the limited edition vinyl are expected to sell during the tour. The singles will also be available via iTunes.

The recordings were produced by former frontman of The Waltons, Saskatchewan alt-rock JUNO winner, Jason Plumb [Colter Wall]. Plumb’s warmth toward the pair is evident, “I've been a fan of both Blake and Belle for quite some time. After seeing their live performance, I couldn't wait to get them in the studio together. It's always interesting when songwriters choose to record another artist’s material. The art is in the interpretation. And with these two, you can hear their chemistry on the recording.”

The live show is a classic double-bill with a twist. Belle and Blake will each perform a set with their own sideplayers - Elizabeth Curry on bass and Jeremy Sauer on Keys for Belle Plaine and Bryce Lewis on guitar for Blake Berglund. To close each the ensemble will come together for a selection of duets including “Town to Town” and “Saskatchewan” from their co-release, Kris Kristofferson’s “Chase The Feeling”, and Ian & Sylvia’s “Summer Wages”.
