THE MIKE PLUME BAND RETURNS TO WINNIPEG
(Winnipeg) – As the wind rolls across the prairies, so does Mike Plume and his band bringing songs and stories to the stage of the Park Theatre, this June.
Canadian singer/songwriter Mike Plume fronts his roots-based namesake band, which consists of bassist Derek Mazurek, and drummer Ernie Basiliadis. Plume’s bandmates are longtime friends, but his first record, 1993’s Songs From a Northern Town, was recorded with a session band in Austin, TX. Plume didn’t recruit his friends as bandmates until 1996’s Jump Back Kerouac; this album won the band an ARIA nomination for Best Pop/Light Rock Artist on Record. Later that year the Mike Plume band released Simplify, an acoustic set that was recorded in under six hours. Touring with groups like Blue Rodeo built the group’s following, and their 1998 album Song & Dance, Man won them more fans and awards. The album was released in the U.S. a year later.
After some time off for family, and a full time songwriting gig in Nashville, Plume restarted the career with 2011’s 8:30 Newfoundland. This is Mike’s first appearance in Winnipeg in 4 years, and a show that cannot be missed.
Joining Mike & the band is new Edmonton duo of Murdoch & Sparrow (James Murdoch and Jay Sparrow) and local Rambling Dan Frechette. This should be an epic night of songs of loss, trouble, heroes and redemption.
