WILLIE STRATTON HEATS UP SUMMER BY BRINGING HIS RED HOT HILLBILLY BOP TO NB, PEI, ON AND QC WITH THEM OTHER JOHNS!
(June 30, 2016 - Halifax) Willie Stratton is hitting the road this summer with his pals Them Other Johns, touring their brand of old time country music in the Maritimes, Ontario and Quebec. The elusive Them Other Johns (Alex Forbes, Dave Campbell and Jill Chambers) play classic country from the guts of Halifax, so it’s only right that Willie is teaming up with Them Other Johns to tour from Halifax to Montreal and back again.
The tour begins at Plan b in Moncton July 30, then they head to Madoc, ON to play August 5 at the Barley Pub & Eatery. August 6 they play Montreal Country Music Institution The Wheel Club. Founded in 1966 The Wheel Club is host to the legendary ‘Hillbilly Jam,’ which is put together by the Old Time Country Music Club of Canada. August 10 in St. Andrew’s, NB they play Red Herring Pub, then they play Atlantic Canada’s freshest folk music festival, The Island Folk Festival Cloggeroo August 13 in Georgetown, PEI. August 15 they perform at “ECMA Monday” in Market Square in Saint John, NB in anticipation of upcoming 2017 East Coast Music Week.

ABOUT WILLIE STRATTON:
Willie Stratton is a force to be reckoned with. Conjuring up a whirlwind of early jazz, blues, and folk styles, the stomping troubadour comes to the stage with a banjo in one hand and a guitar in the other and channels the spirits of long dead old timers like Dock Boggs, Charley Patton, and Fats Waller to name a few; bringing with him technical prowess and musical whit of a bygone era.
Willie Stratton is available for interviews, please direct all media requests to:

Noted PEI Folk Musician Al Tuck Announces Ambitious East Coast Tour this Summer with his latest Album, Fair Country
[Halifax] Prince Edward Island songwriter and folk musician, Al Tuck is extensively touring the East Coast, leaving no one in the region an excuse not to get out and see the show.
His latest album, Fair Country, redefines the country genre with a collection of original songs, co-writes and covers delivered with Al Tuck's singular voice and distinctive style that have made him a favourite with audiences throughout Canada.
Reviews for "Fair Country:"
"[Al Tuck is] one of our very best songwriters, and he enjoys the kind of peer respect better-selling artists would sacrifice a digit for." New Canadian Musician: http://www.newcanadianmusic.ca/releases/f/fair-country/al-tuck/2015-06-09
"People who know Al Tuck's work often marvel at his astounding songwriting (i.e., his lyrics), but his voice, musicality and performance choices are just as remarkable." Now Toronto: https://nowtoronto.com/music/album-reviews/album-of-the-week-al-tuck/
Al Tuck is a genre-hopping, songwriter-troubadour, born and based in Canada’s smallest province, picturesque Prince Edward Island. If Canada had an official “songwriter’s songwriter” position, Al Tuck would be a strong contender for the role. Grammy-winning singer Feist has described him as a living legend in our midst. Juno-winners Joel Plaskett and Old Man Luedecke have trumpeted him as a major formative influence. Broken Social Scene’s Jason Collett dubbed him the greatest songwriter of his generation.
Tuck is currently on the first leg of an East Coast tour that will take the music throughout the Maritimes and the island of Newfoundland.
