Infinitea T Bar and Boutique is getting ready to host a shiny new act called Brass Buttons next month.

The Regina roots/folk duo are stopping by Fernie to promote their debut, self titled EP on April 8, as part of their strangely named tour, “You’re the reason our kids are ugly.”

Married couple Chris Prpich and Carolyn Moser make up the duo and are bringing their two kids along for the ride.

“The tour title seems to sum up the attitude we need to have for this tour, and also one that says our shows are light-hearted and are inspired from a different time,” said Chris. “I really wanted to take the whole band, however, we were not sure how that would work with our kids, and possibly other band members’ kids; a van load of gear, stinky musicians and 5,000 km!”

Crafted at home, unrefined, cozy at the kitchen table with babies in the background, the new EP offers up sweet harmonies, intimate guitar picking and grinning and simple down to earth charm.

Catch the duo at Infinitea in Fernie on May 4.
