Autumn Leaves Concert

Twenty-seven years. Four bandmates. Two brothers. One album. Let It Lie, the debut release and Traditional/Roots 2015 Juno winner from Canadian roots-rockers the Bros. Landreth, is proof that there's strength in numbers.

The bluesy wail of electric guitars, the swell of B3 organ, and the harmonized swoon of two voices that were born to mesh. At first listen, you might call it Americana. Dig deeper and you'll hear the nuances that separate The Bros. Landreth.

EVENT: Concert, The Brothers Landreth in Concert
TIME: Friday, Sept 23 @ 8:00pm
VENUE: Alliance Community Church, Sylvan Lake
ADMISSION: $35
