The Northern South Tour!
Six Shooter Records’ Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet tied the musical knot with their band project Whitehorse, marrying their talent and chemistry on stage as a smoldering duo. They're married in real life, too, having announced their intentions on the CBC television program "Sounds Like Canada." Gutsy and resolute in their pursuits of sound and substance, Luke and Melissa’s fusion of the personal and professional brings to mind the road-tested romance of Johnny and June. Individually, Luke and Melissa have been recognized with awards and nominations from the Juno Awards, the Canadian Folk Music Awards, the Hamilton Music Awards, the Independent Music Awards and the Polaris Prize. Both have been individually compared with Tom Waits, and both have that unique Canadian take on American roots that shows audiences south of the border something of ourselves. Their latest, "Leave No Bridge Unburned," moves in a rock direction. Ryan Boldt of Deep Dark Woods opens.
