The West End Cultural
Centre proudly hosts a two night affair, Loud and Quiet with local icon
Greg MacPherson and special guests. Friday, September 9th will
mark a night of fast and churning tunes both new and old while Saturday,
September 10th will be home to an intimate, acoustic set of music from
Greg’s brand new album and favourites from the past.
Greg is celebrating two of the most important events of his music career
thus far. The launch of his new record Disintegration Blues and the official
launch of Greg’s record label, Disintegration Records. Joining Greg on
stage will be The Cannon Bros on Friday night, and Jesse Hill of Slow
Dancers on Saturday, both from the Disintegration Records roster.
MacPherson is the new breed of a songwriting tradition stretching back
to Woody Guthrie and including voices like Jo Strummer and Bruce Springsteen.
Like the aforementioned legends, MacPherson shares his loud, passionate
voice saying things about his place in the changing world and champions
labour rights through song. These are songs about love, desire, fear and
doubt. His songs walk an inscrutable line between beauty and determination.
A place where the ordinary becomes important and actions bring hope. The
celebrated dichotomy of the proudly Winnipeg based Greg MacPherson is
both loud and quiet.
Two special silkscreened posters in limited edition designed by Guppy
Graphic Design and two unique custom craft brews by Half Pints Brewing
Co. will be available to purchase to celebrate the occasion, giving both
nights their own special flavour and visual appeal.
$30 will get you admittance to the two shows while the $50 ticket price
will get you a seat for the performances, a signed poster, a copy of the
Disintegration Blues album and a chance to win breakfast with Greg as
your special chef for you and a guest in your own house!
