Blackberry Wood has kicked up dust in towns all over Western Canada

Blackberry Wood plays Grizzly Plaza this Friday

Alternative country-gypsy-circus act Blackberry Wood plays the Revelstoke Street Fest Aug. 17.

Blackberry Wood has kicked up dust in towns all over Western Canada, the United Kingdom and parts of the United States and will bring its alternative country-gypsy-circus music to the Grizzly Plaza this Friday, Aug. 17. Vancouver’s Blackberry Wood puts a high-energy cabaret spin on old and modern music adding juicy flavours like jumpin’ ska, skiffle, folk, punk and many other foot stomping delights to their original and timeless down-home music. Blackberry Wood comes down the road like a travelling caravan with all kinds of wondrous instruments, vocal melodies, and fantastically costumed characters. Some have describe their music as Tijuana-Hillbilly-Ska. Their sound slips from gypsy folk to ragtime to country and, when you least expect it, in slides a bit of hip hop and world beats. Fit to compete with the cast of Moulin Rouge with their zany costumes, Blackberry Wood seems ready to strike up a burlesque hoedown just about anywhere you plunk them down. The motley crew is led by front man Kris Wood and the fun loving band is making a name for itself on both sides of the Atlantic. Veterans of the UK’s prestigious Glastonbury Festival — they have appeared twice — Blackberry Wood plays all over B.C. and Alberta.
