Amelia Curran @ Fred’s Records!

Newfoundland’s own Amelia Curran rocked the shop on Thursday, April 6!

To celebrate her latest album, 2017’s ‘Watershed‘ and her new book, ‘Relics and Tunes: The Songs of Amelia Curran‘, Amelia played a 3 song set to a highly excited and supportive audience.
After the set, Amelia signed copies of her published work, as well as CDs and freshly released vinyl copies of ‘Watershed.’
This event, created by Fred’s Records, Amelia’s record label Six Shooter Records, and her publisher, Breakwater Books, was a huge success, with all attendees filing out into the crisp evening air with big smiles on their faces.
As always, it was an absolute pleasure to see Amelia perform, and especially wonderful to hear her newest tunes live for the first time.

If you couldn’t make it to the show, check out this video of Amelia performing the album’s title track, ‘Watershed.’

The Kubasonics @ Fred’s Records!

A unique band on the capital city’s vast musical roster, The Kubasonics are guaranteed to – like the wind – blow you away every time.
Their latest musical offering, ‘Kubfunland‘ hit shelves on April 8 and has already received glowing reviews from their many fans, who turned out in droves for the band’s album release show on April 8.

We’ll use their website’s album info to entice you to swing by the shop to snag your copy of ‘Kubfunland‘:

“The Kubasonics’ new CD “Kubfunland” takes listeners on a wild ride through a variety of musical styles and textures. The repertoire draws on a wealth of Ukrainian traditional material ranging from centuries old chants, ritual dance melodies, songs of love and of troubled relationships, toe-tapping party music, and even a set of Newfoundland dance tunes. All are given a refreshingly new interpretation in the Kubasonics’ arrangements. Top-notch musicianship combined with the sounds of an array of exotic folk instruments result in a unique sonic blend.”

Check out these snaps from their amazing in-store performance!

 

Even their littlest fans were eager to show their support!
