Strumbellas make their way to Fernie

The Strumbellas played at The Northern on November 1 as part of their North American tour.

It’s only been two months since the indie/folk band, The Strumbellas, played at the Wapiti music festival and the adored band is already headed back to Fernie for another show.

The Strumbellas are set to play at The Northern on November 1 as part of their North American tour, a tour that will take them through a total of 38 American and Canadian cities from September 18 to December 14.

“I’m looking forward to coming back up north,” lead singer Simon Ward said. “We’ve been to Fernie a couple of times and it was really great.”

He went on to say, “The area is arguably the nicest area in Canada. It’s pretty ridiculous how beautiful it is. Everybody’s just really nice and chilled out, and they always treat us really well, so it’s just a good place to be.”

The band is looking forward to showcasing their music at The Northern, including their new single “End of an Era.”

The Strumbellas have had an exciting and successful year, being long listed for the 2014 Polaris Music Prize, taking home the Roots & Traditional Album of the Year: Group at the 2014 JUNO Awards and winning the Sirius XM Indie award for Folk Group of the Year.

“We had a really good year,” Ward noted. “I just think that people are going to hopefully see that we are at a higher level in terms of just our playing and our energy.”

He went on to say, “We’re super excited to come [to Fernie].”
