The West End Cultural Centre is thrilled to announce their 30th anniversary celebration throughout the month of October, 2017. The next show to be announced for this upcoming celebration is Saskatoon band, The Deep Dark Woods.

Floods and plagues, ghosts and slaughter: woe to those who populate the songs of Yarrow. A gentle summer breeze swings the gallows ropes, flowers bloom callously on lovers’ graves. These anthems are definitely not from Eden.

The Deep Dark Woods’ newest album was born in a fever – scarlet fever, to be medically specific. A disease of the last century is a fitting backdrop for songs that dig bare handed into the loam to unearth the corpses of old English folk and country blues.
Yarrow is Deep Dark Woods reimagined by lead man Ryan Boldt, and accompanied by the same band that crafted prairie psychedelics and a “loose grungy folk sound,”(Paste) for flannelites. For nearly ten years they developed an international following with particular success in the Americana realm, nominated alongside Alabama Shakes and Dawes for Emerging Artist of the Year at the 2012 Americana Music Awards.

Now wrest out of the woods, their outlook is decidedly more macabre, tapping into a rich vein of gothic surrealism that aligns with some of the great murder balladeers of our time.
With Appalachian soil under his fingernails, Boldt writes in a deep tradition of bleak and forlorn storytelling, drawing lines from Ireland to Tennessee, the Oxford Girl to Folsom Prison.

In Yarrow, there’s a juicy unease to frontman Boldt’s presence, as if a new door has opened to let loose the weirdness. In place of the freewheelin’ jammy vibe, there’s a darker, stranger tenor that sides with those modern mystics whose music exists in the creepier, freakier corners of existence.
