Mark Berube cd release for Russian Dolls
Thursday, December 5, 2013
Born in Manitoba, raised in Swaziland and now based in Montréal, pianist and accordionist Mark Berube performs with the group The Patriotic Few - Kristina Koropecki (cello), Amélie Mandeville (bass), and Patrick Dugas (drums). With one foot rooted in the folk music tradition of story-telling, the poetry of spoken-word, and the other planted in a childhood love of South African music, psychedelic folk pop and a smattering of jazz, Mark Berube has a broad and eclectic base from which to build his albums, all bound together by his warmly potent voice. And this is exactly what we get with his new album titled Russian Dolls, out November 5th on Bonsound! Kristina Koropecki, Berube’s shadowy co-conspirator, adds layers of cello, autoharp, saw and a classical music vocabulary to the mix, resulting in rich, lush and adventurous sonic landscapes.
Guelph's talented songstress and member of the Skydiggers Jessy Bell Smith will open the show.
