LUTHER WRIGHT (Bluegrass/Country/Guitar)
July 10, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Luther Wright has been writing, recording and performing music for over 20 years now. He started out in a band with his talented songwriter brother Geordie in the garage/punk, vigilante vegetarian outfit The Mugworts who honed their chops while traveling in Mexico and playing to gringos and locals alike. In 1994 he joined up with his friends Sarah and Mary Harmer to play lead guitar in the Canadian, pop-rock band, “Weeping Tile” (WEA/Atlantic). It was during the next 5 years of full-on touring and recording with that band that Luther, Weeping Tile drummer Cam Giroux and his roots compadres Sean Kelly and Dan Curtis formed the now-renowned, country/punkgrass road daemons, “Luther Wright & The Wrongs”. Known on one hand for their brilliantly executed, country/bluegrass reworking of Pink Floyd’s classic The Wall, Luther and the band have also recorded and released five all-original albums, Hurtin’ For Certain (1997), Rogers Waltz (1999), the valentine gone awry, Guitar Pickin’ Martyrs (2003), Instrumentality(2005), Man of Your Dreams (2008). Also to boot, they made two cds of original children’s music under the guise of Butterfingers. From its release internationally in 2001, Rebuild the Wall (Universal/Backporch), opened up doors for ’the Wrongs to play over 500 shows of old-country, inspired music across the continent. Luther’s music is used in the CTV television show, “Robson Arms”, and his song “Tumbler Ridge” is part of the soundtrack in Ron Mann’s documentary film about Woody Harrleson entitled, “Go Further”. At the request of the Goodman family Luther contributed a version of “The City Of New Orleans”, to a wonderful album that pays tribute to folk legend Steve Goodman. He is currently recording a new album produced by Chris Brown (Bourbon Tabernacle Choir/Chris Brown & Kate Femner) and touring steadily around North America as well as producing music locally and presenting shows when the feeling is right.
