A down-home, acoustic folk and roots band, with just the right mix of East Coast and country charm is making a stop in Fernie on Wednesday. Red Moon Road, with guests The Bickertons, will entertain an audience for the evening at Clawhammer Gallery.

Red Moon Road is made up of three musicians who come together from three very different directions. Daniel Peloquin-Hopfner got his start as a progressive metal guy and Daniel Jordan trained as a big-band jazz drummer. Sheena Rattai fronted a funk band before joining the band, and grew up singing in church choirs, where she learned the mysteries of singing for the sacred and sublime. Together, the trio creates music made equally for fireplaces, festival stages, and the luminous blue of a Canadian night.

Red Moon Road is now celebrating their newly released second album, Tales from the Whiteshell, a six song collection that reflects their profound connection to the backwoods.

Tickets are $15 and available at Clawhammer in advance or at the door.
