Musicians Jeff Crosby and the Refugees (JC&TR) are coming through Fernie on September 28 to play at The Royal and Infinitea T-Bar as part of their 10 day Canadian tour.

This is the band’s first time playing in Canada. After a summer of criss crossing the U.S. opening for Jerry Joseph, the band couldn’t be more excited to be heading north.

Jeff Crosby, who is no stranger to his Canuck neighbors, grew up mere miles from the Canadian boarder in Idaho. Now residing in Los Angeles, his songs still have strong connections to the wild land that he grew up in. Over the past year Crosby has built a tight relationship with songwriter Joseph, signing to his record label, Cosmo Sex School last year. Crosby’s new EP, “Silent Conversations” was released to much critical acclaim and will have his song “Oh Love, Oh Lord” featured on the hit show Sons of Anarchy on September 24. This tour will feature local favorite Buckman Coe from Vancouver as support for each show.

“I believe Jeff Crosby is the authentic item…if I had half a brain, I would quit playing music and manage him…and if I were signing bands for Atlantic Records, I would have signed him a year ago…I would put my job on the line and never look back,” said Joseph.

JC&TR’s extensive Canadian tour will take them to B.C. and Alberta over the course of 10 days in September and is in association with Starbelly Jam Music Festival.
