Ontario-based band Elliott Brood is returning to the stage at Spiritbar on Tuesday

Elliott Brood returns to Nelson

Ontario favourites return to the stage at Nelson's Spiritbar.

There is nothing I love more as a music lover than when I discover a band and then to my delight realize they have a back catelogue for me to enjoy.

That is exactly what happened when I started listening to Elliott Brood.

The Ontario-based death country, frontier rock, revival music players or whatever you call them have been touring the country playing shows from Vancouver Island to Newfoundland sharing their unique blend of folk, rock, country  and, as I mistakenly said in the fall, “phat banjo.”

Elliott Brood is not one man but three — Mark Sasso, Casey Lafoet and Stephen Pitkin.

Sasso told me in the fall how the band started much like thousands of others, playing bars in Toronto and practicing in his apartment above a Flight Centre.

Elliott Brood has gained popularity across the nation but not by hitting the top 40 lists or playing massive stadium shows, instead they tour extensively and have gained devoted fans through CBC and independent radio stations.

In 2010, the band took the stage in Vancouver to showcase — along with many other bands — why Canada has gained a great reputation for music.

The trio has played Nelson many times before and will be back at Spiritbar on August 21.

Doors open at 8 p.m. and tickets are available at the Hume Hotel’s front desk.
