Rube & Rake (featuring Pagoda Starling)

Auberge Willow Inn, 208 rue Main, Hudson, QC

About Rube & Rake:

Often described as a darker Simon and Garfunkel, Rube & Rake engage audiences with a mixture of stories, intricate guitar work, and rich vocal harmonies. After working together for the past 6 years out of St. John’s, Newfoundland, Josh Sandu and Andrew Laite have fused an intimate musical connection that comes across in every new song and performance. Winners of the 2022 ECMA for Songwriter of the Year and 2020 Music NL Folk/Roots Artist of the Year awards, they have spent the last three years touring Canada honing their craft. Their music is an exercise in creating something beyond the sum of their parts.

About Pagoda Starling:

Dreamy harmonies, moody melodies, and intimately intertwined guitars are the hallmarks of the Pagoda Starling sound. Folky, emotive, and subtle, Seiji Gutierrez and Briana Doyle draw upon influences ranging from vintage folk and alternative rock from the 60s through the 90s — and the end result is distinctively original. Pagoda Starling's first original single, Magpie Molly, is scheduled for release on November 15, with more tunes planned for release in the new year.
