Carolyn Moser and Chris Prpich of Brass Buttons are coming to Nelson on May 10

Folk duo set to play Nelson’s John Ward café

Brass Buttons, a roots/folk duo from Regina, will play in Nelson on May 10.

John Ward Fine Coffee is getting ready to host a shiny new act called Brass Buttons next month.

The Regina roots/folk duo are stopping by Nelson to promote their debut, self titled EP on May 8, as part of their strangely named tour: “You’re the reason our kids are ugly.”

Married couple Chris Prpich and Carolyn Moser make up the duo and are bringing their two kids along for the ride.

“The tour title seems to sum up the attitude we need to have for this tour, and also one that says our shows are light-hearted and are inspired by a different time,” said Chris.

Crafted at home, unrefined, cozy at the kitchen table with babies in the background, the new EP offers up sweet harmonies, intimate guitar picking and grinning, simple down to earth charm.

Catch the duo at Nelson’s John Ward Fine Coffee on May 10 at 1 p.m.
