Black Angus is about good friends, good humour, and good songs. Their enthusiastic performances take listeners from Vancouver Island to Ireland and back again, fueled by collaboration, innovation, and a sheer enjoyment of what they do.
Black Angus offers a variety of material from foot-stomping folk songs to poignant lyrical poetry. Their variety of ensembles, centred around the duo of Gareth Hurwood and Alex MacCuaig, offer great stage presence and a camaraderie that is instantly communicated to audiences. Black Angus is devoted to the authenticity of “good songs” that speak to their artistic hearts, and is near-impossible to pigeon-hole: traditional & contemporary Irish, acoustic roots, Americana, West Coast Celtic, blues, and old-time are all part of the Black Angus sound.
Opening Act: Horsetail Bandits
Driven by a mutual love of Eastern European Romani music, Horsetail Bandits bring a new voice to old-world traditions.
With their sweet harmonies, driving rhythms, and pounding suitcases, the Bandits will be sure to take your blues away.
