Winlaw's Hot Tin Can and Nelson's The June Apples play at Ellison's from 1 to 3 p.m. this Saturday

Ellison’s Cafe Acoustic Unplugged Sessions hosts Hot Tin Can and The June Apples on Saturday, November 30 from 1 to 3 p.m.

Hot Tin Can is an alt folk duo from Winlaw. They perform two part harmonies on guitars and harmonica. Composed of Dan Swearingin from The Savages and Paul Erven from Father Paul and the Fireside Prophets, they are both former members of The Givers and play almost all original music except one or two obscure cover songs.

The June Apples are four women with a deep reverence for old time and bluegrass music. The group has a unique traditional repertoire and sing multipart harmonies. Genie Sittig plays fiddle, Rachel Swan on guitar, Catherine McGrath on mandolin, Jill Zinszer on clawhammer banjo and they switch it around to include the upright bass. From old time ballads to foot stompin’ kick-up-the-dirt tunes, they will be sure to entertain.
