Live Music: The Blue Wranglers with Wild Honey
About The Blue Wranglers
Pitting hard driving bluegrass undertones against an array of sparkling country-rock influences, The Blue Wranglers are Dustin Bentall on vocals + 6 string guitar, Dan Fremlin on vocals + mandolin and Jamielynn Caswell on everything else. The band frequently showcases the Cariboo songbird Alyssa Omura on vocals and the smouldering talent of Tommy Krowiak on Telecaster guitar.
Keep your ears peeled for The Blue Wranglers' debut album, which might be coming some time in 2023. Written and arranged by The Blue Wranglers themselves, the album features regional hits such as "Down The Road", "Rocky Mountain View" & "Hello, Today"
About Special Guests: Wild Honey
Wild Honey is an all-female roots trio based in the East Kootenay region of spectacular British Columbia. The band of busy mothers has been together for a decade, and has just released their second album, an EP titled ‘Let’s Be Cowboys’. Recorded and produced by Canadian music legend Barney Bentall, the songs are compiled and delivered with gentle grace. Always inspired by their mountain towns and love of the outdoors, Shelby, Jessica, and Laura were searching for a sound that celebrated these passions.
The album is a love letter to their daughters – 8 in total – celebrating their unique strengths and ability to shatter the stereotypical roles expected of them. The honest, fragile lyrics in songs like ‘Let it Roll’ and 'Caged Bird’ tenderly highlight the mental health crisis faced by so many after the isolation of the pandemic. ‘Fly Angel’ is a bold and cheeky answer to John Prine’s classic ‘Angel From Montgomery’. Overall, the album is a musical promise to hold on - hope is not lost. To quote from track 3, ‘Let it Roll’, “The sun will rise, and time will heal your soul.
