Ontario band Murder Murder are set to perform at the Bronte Music Club on Sunday 15th May.
The concert was announced by Frontier Promotions in conjunction with Armagh City Banbridge Craigavon Borough Council.
Murder Murder is a “Bloodgrass” band (Bluegrass + Outlaw Country + Exclusively Murder Ballads) hailing from the frozen forests of the Ontario Northland.
Their tales of death are filled with life by the kick of the suitcase, saw of the fiddle, and roll of the banjo.
As devoted fans of bluegrass, traditional music, and folk music, they were drawn to the murky ethical themes of the murder ballad form and to its enduring nature.
The lack of mythology associated with Northern Ontario is troubling, and thus Murder Murder felt it their responsibility to create their own mythology.
Since its inception in 2013 Murder Murder has produced two full-length records and toured extensively.
Murder Murder’s was nominated for “Best Songwriter” in the 2015 Northern Ontario Film & Music Awards.
They also beat more than 100 other bands from across Northern Ontario to become Regional Champion in the 2015 CBC Searchlight Competition.
As well as making it to the final 23 bands out of more than 3300 entries, Murder Murder was also selected as an “Audience Favourite”.
This is the band’s first Irish tour and the gig promises to be one to remember.
So bring a bottle, go along and enjoy some Murder Murder in Rathfriland.
Doors open at 8.30pm and the show will begin at 9pm
Tickets are priced at £15
