Winnie Brave: Amy and Brad McIssac

Winnie Brave rolls into town

Duo sing of places and colourful travels and adventures.

The Sooke Folk Music Society is launching its new season with the latest music artists to come to Sooke: Winnie Brave.

The band’s name is an homage to its home on the road, a vintage 1976 Winnebago, which plays in tune with the band’s soulful roots and folk style.

Amy and Brad McIssac have been making music throughout North America, playing more than 150 shows a year.

This Ontario couple creates a sweet mix of folk, blues, and Ameri-Canadiana music styles.

Featuring a collection of songs from their self-titled debut album, inspired by their recent journeys, Winnie Brave rolls into the Sooke Folk Coffeehouse on Saturday (May 21).

It all happens at the Holy Trinity Anglican Church, located at 1962 Murray Rd.

Doors open at 7 p.m. with open stage at 7:30.

Admission is $7 at the door.
