Saturday, May 19, 7:30 p.m.—BRANDON—The Young Novelists are a Toronto-based band fronted by husband and wife Graydon James and Laura Spink. They perform at Brandon Music on May 19 as part of a national tour for their latest album, offering classic him-and-her vocals, with James playing acoustic guitar and Spink on percussion and vibraphone.
James and Spink will perform several songs from “In City & Country,” which examines the parallels and differences of city and small-town life. The songs on the album were inspired by their experiences living in both small towns and cities as well as a number of research trips to towns in their home province of Ontario, Canada. The songs on the album tell the universal stories of both while highlighting the differences, similarities, and everything in-between.
No matter where you’ve lived, the dichotomy that exists on in “In City & Country” is universal; it’s not just a memoir of the duo’s experiences or the histories of small towns, it’s about appreciating where you’ve been and where you’re at — and finding the good and bad that lies within both.
Concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Concert tickets are $20. A pre-concert dinner is available for $25. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. Venue is BYOB.
Call 802-247-4295 for reservations or for more information. Brandon Music is located at 62 Country Club Road, Brandon.
