Kacy & Clayton Live At Sanctuary Arts Centre

May 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm


“We were raised on cattle ranches where we learned how to play traditional country music because that’s what everyone wanted to hear.”

The music Kacy and Clayton make is inextricable from where they grew up. They sing about the kind of people you’d find in Wood Mountain, Saskatchewan (population very few). The hills, barns and remoteness of the area are in these songs, with a bittersweet acknowledgement that this music has taken them far from home.

Their sound is equal parts homespun, coming from a family and community where playing music is an ever present part of social gatherings, and the rare country, blues and English folk rock these second cousins obsess over and collect. For ​Carrying On,​ Clayton cites as influences: Bobbie Gentry’s ​The Delta Sweete​, Hoyt Axton’s ​My Griffin Is Gone​, Cajun fiddle music, and the steel guitar of Ralph Mooney who played on many of the records that defined the Bakersfield country music scene of the 1950s. Sixties psych has also woven its way into these new songs; Kacy enjoys telling people that they live 250km from the mental hospital that coined the term ‘psychedelic’.
