Rogue 33 RPM | July 3 | This Day In Rogue History
On this day in 2009 we presented New Zealand trio Pacific Curls at St. James Hall. Their blend of Maori and Pacific Island songs with Scottish fiddle and soulful grooves makes these three women one of my favourite ensembles from Aotearoa. I reckon you could search all across the southern hemisphere and you'd be hard-pressed to find more heartfelt, compelling roots music.
In 2004 we presented Quebec trad trio Genticorum at St. James Hall for their Rogue debut. They have been back several times since, and are always a delight! Great harmony vocals and superb musicianship! Scroll down to Page 5 of our June 2004 Rogue Folk Review for details of this show.
In 2003 we teamed up with Caravan World Rhythms to present Son De Madera - a traditional Mexican band specialising in fandangos from Veracruz. This memorable show took place at the Wise Hall and you can read an enticing article about them written by former Rogue board member Al Meyer in our June 2003 Review.
In 1993 we presented an English Country Dance with my former band Jiggery Pokery at the Britannia Shipyards in Steveston. This was an old-fashioned barn dance and it was great fun to perform on that historic site. Scroll down to Page 2 of our June 1993 Review for more details.
