Main Stage, 12:05-12:45 p.m.
Since 2006, Bruce Peninsula has created a strange mix of American gospel, African folk and storyteller prog, resulting in a style often praised for it’s “genre-less” qualities. Bruce Peninsula are a large ensemble from Toronto who believe in singing from the gut and letting the rhythm lead.
BP has publicly laid low in recent years, but have remained active in the film composing community (most recently with 2015 success story Sleeping Giant) and with myriad satellite acts and solo projects (including The Weather Station, Eons, Twin Within and more). Bruce is now in the studio working on the follow up to 2009’s A Mountain Is A Mouth and 2011’s Open Flames.
Riverfest attendees will be some of the first to experience the band’s new material live, where Bruce Peninsula shines.
