Coming to the Lyric Theatre on Saturday, April 30 is Slow Leaves, Winnipeg’s modern folk singer Grant Davidson. 


Performing with Davidson will be the husband and wife duo of Leaf Rapids.
Grant Davidson’s style is like an early 70s California country-folk record that straddles the line between new and old. It is deceptive in its simplicity, rich in melody, and immediately classic. His songs, genuine and honest, spare nothing in creating vivid images and heartfelt connections and his voice, both warm and effortless, provides a modern vitality.
The latest musical project of Keri and Devin Latimer, Leaf Rapids, wildly captures the isolated nature of Manitoba. The lyrical themes explore the inner workings of the people left too long inside their cabins in the dead of winder, and where spring explodes. Their music creates the feeling of a warm layered blanket, filled with bass, guitars and drums, along with the voice of Keri and the haunting sound of the Theremin.
Keri and Devin have been performing together since 1996, originally part of another band before branching out on their own. Their sound as a duo has evolved, and has become an impressive representation of the Canadian grasslands, which are as beautiful as they are harsh. They have taken notes from Canada’s soft tones and tough seasons.
Leaf Rapids and Slow Leaves will close out the Blenders Series on Saturday, April 30 at the Lyric Theatre in Swift Current. 
Tickets are $30 and can be purchased at Pharmasave. Doors will open at 7:30 p.m. and the music will begin at 8:30 p.m.
