Hearing Headwater is like listening to the West Coast of Canada in song. Freewheeling, fierce, sentimental and sexy, the Vancouver, B.C., quartet has earned its reputation as one of the finest acoustic roots groups around the old-fashioned way. Since forming in 2001, the group has logged in thousands of kilometres crisscrossing Western Canada and playing to anyone and everyone willing to give it some love. With hooks, driving rhythms, adventurous steel guitar and mandolin solos, and beautiful three-part vocal harmonies all featured in tight, concise under four-minute songs, they found fans fast. Or they roped them in at first, street busking before gigs rather than hanging out waiting for crowds to come to them.
Sir Run Run's Tiny Dynasty is an opportunity to hang out in the early evening, drink some nice beer (or your preferred equivalent), socialize a bit, and also hear great performances by a wide range of exceptional artists.
Every Wednesday, 6pm onwards in the newly transformed and cozy-ified lobby of the Rickshaw Theatre.
