Event Description

THE SWEET LOWDOWN can take you anywhere you want to go, from a sunny front porch to the outer reaches of the universe. Blending original songwriting and three-part harmonies with an old-time instrumental groove, this award-winning acoustic roots trio from Victoria, B.C. creates a unique yet timeless sound that takes listeners on a pleasurable and memorable journey.

Drawn together by mutual passion for old-time music, hard-driving bluegrass, sweet harmonies and well-wrought songs, The Sweet Lowdown (Amanda Blied-guitar, Shanti Bremer-banjo and Miriam Sonstenes-fiddle) pays homage to its musical roots while simultaneously breaking new ground. Each member contributes to the band’s original repertoire and each has a unique vocal flair as well as impressive instrumental chops.

These are well evident on The Sweet Lowdown’s latest award-winning album “May”, winner of the 2013 “Island Roots Album of the Year” (Vancouver Island Music Awards) and nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award (Vocal Group of the Year) produced by Adrian Dolan (The Bills, Ruth Moody), mastered by Joby Baker (Cowboy Junkies, The Bills) and released in November 2012. The album features 10 original compositions and two traditional songs that demonstrate a wide range of influences, including Irish and Indian music. It follows on the heels of the band’s highly praised self-titled 2011 album, which received a nomination for “Album of the Year” by the Vancouver Island Music Awards.

Winners of the 2013 “Island Roots Album of the Year” (Vancouver Island Music Awards), Victoria’s 2011 M-Award for “Favorite Roots/World Music Group”, and nominated for “Island Artist of the Year” and “BC-Wide Artist of the Year” (VIMA), The Sweet Lowdown has the ability to play to, draw in, and excite a diverse audience–young and old, lovers of traditional music as well as those new to it.

They have just released a new album "Chasing The Sun" and will be launching it at the Rogue on what will be a very special evening.
