The truly remarkable Pharis and Jason Romero out of Horsefly, BC, take to the stage at Medici’s Gelateria & Coffee House in Oliver on Saturday, February 16th for what promises to be a signature show of the 2013 folk/blues season.
Pharis and Jason have one foot firmly planted in tradition and enough jagged edges to feel modern. Much of their singing is crafted in the tradition of the classic brother duet, with duet singing throughout, but they are by no means a throwback.
Pharis and Jason sing like birds and play wonderful old time music. Their harmonies are close, unusual and haunting, whether they are performing traditional country blues, roots or old time songs from the early days of radio.
Both are accomplished instrumentalists, accompanying themselves with acoustic guitars, resophonic guitar and banjos.
A show with the duet moves from spacious, almost ethereal, folk songs to hard edged country blues with stories and an easy rapport; it carries a feeling of intimacy and complete love for each other and the music at hand.
They have played country and folk festivals up and down the west coast and have been feature performers on CBC.
Seating is limited and advance tickets are $20. They can be purchased at Medici’s on Fairview Road and Beyond Bliss in Oliver or at Dolci Deli in Osoyoos. Doors open at 6:30 The Romeros at 7:30….250-498-2228
