JOHN K. SAMSON

John K. Samson is a talk-singing sober leftist vegetarian Quaker from Winnipeg, Treaty One Territory, where he lives with his partner and fellow songwriter, Christine Fellows. Since 1997, John has written four full-length albums for his band, The Weakerthans, and two solo records, Provincial (2012), and Winter Wheat (2016). John is currently playing solo shows, where he performs selections from all 6 of these releases (available on Epitaph/ANTI Records), along with new material.


CHRISTINE FELLOWS

Christine Fellows finds music in sounds we tend to take for granted: the voices of the people we love, the sounds of the spaces we move through as part of our daily lives. Alternately delicate and rousing, her songs shed light on characters that tend to be overlooked and isolated, those whose struggles and triumphs are difficult to quantify. Many of her characters are women, an intentional focus that Christine has continued through 7 solo albums that highlight the vivid interior lives of pigeon-fanciers, shut-ins, runaways, and solitary travelers in wintery northlands.
