ALBERTON – The Sunday Singer-Songwriter Series continues this Sunday at the Albert & Crown in Alberton as the pub welcomes, the Red Moon Road trio, all the way from Winnipeg, Man.

Born in a storm on a wild Canadian lake, Red Moon Road came into its own on the trails between coast and coast. All credit goes to the chemistry, and to the magic that happens when the Winnipeg folk band's two Daniels (jazz-trained Daniel Jordan and bilingual progressive-rock vet Daniel Peloquin-Hopfner) strum up the strings to support twilight-voiced singer Sheena Rattai.

From living rooms to folk festival stages, the three have charmed fans across Canada with their lush and lively take on modern roots, peppered always by bright stage banter, exquisite harmonies and masterfully told stories.

As can be heard on their new EP "Tales from the Whiteshell" or their acclaimed eponymous debut album, it's all sort of rich and warm and deeply familiar, like a campfire crackling wherever the microphones stand.

The Aug. 3 Red Moon Road performance at the Albert & Crown Pub & Eatery is part of the venue’s Sunday Singer-Songwriters Series. Showtime is at 7 p.m. with $10 tickets available by calling 902-853-0000.

The Albert & Crown’s Sunday Singer-Songwriters Series upcoming artists include Matthew Hornell of Newfoundland on Sunday, Aug. 10, from 7 to 10 p.m.; Micheal Biggar of New Brunswick on Sunday, Aug. 17, 7 to 10 p.m. and Meaghan Blanchard of P.E.I. on Sunday, Aug. 24, 8 to 10 p.m.

Red Moon Road will also be playing on the Island Monday, Aug. 4. The trio will be the first in the Monday series "Best of the West" at Milton Community Hall at 7:30 p.m.
