Red Moon Road

The path towards the new Red Moon Road album, ‘Sorrows and Glories’, began with a shattered leg, a cancelled tour and a long 2000 km trip home. Luckily, the Winnipeg folk trio is known for surviving adversity, spinning stories into songs and, more often, breaking hearts with stunning musicianship. 

Red Moon Road, formed in 2012 by Daniel Jordan, Sheena Rattai and Daniel Peloquin-Hopfner, are now fully healed and returned from a year of extensive and adventure filled touring across 7 countries in Europe and North America. ‘Sorrows and Glories’ (their third album, released in Fall 2015) has already spent three weeks at number one on the Earshot! National Folk/Roots/Blues Charts and has delighted listeners world wide. 

Sorrows and Glories was recorded by producer/engineer/Juno recipient, David Travers-Smith (Wailin’ Jennys, Ruth Moody) and award winning producer/player Murray Pulver (Doc Walker, Steve Bell) and delivers the band’s finest songwriting to date. Spanning a wide range of genres, from a Beatles-esque pop song, Words of the Walls, which muses the storied past of an iconic apartment block, to Beauty in These Broken Bones, a full-on spiritual backed by a star-studded choir, the three collaborative yet distinct writers frame immaculately crafted songs with original and innovative instrumental work. With tastes of Albertan country, Parisian aires, banjo driven anthems and the tradition folk storytelling in a Canadiana style, the music carries the stories as compellingly as the lyrics.

Live, Red Moon Road makes a much bigger sound than one would expect from a trio. In an impressive well-choreographed show, bordering on spectacle, the trio incorporates impeccable three-part harmonies, a roots drum kit split entertainingly but pragmatically between two band members and an acoustic guitar rigged to also be a bass. A moustached man plays mandolin, lap steel, banjo and organ, and subtle technological wizardry whirls as the unmistakable soulful voice of one of Canada’s premiere songstresses floats above it all. Honed in house concerts and main stage festival appearances alike, Red Moon Road is a tapestry of song, masterful storytelling and spontaneous repartee woven seamlessly into something truly exceptional.
