RAINE HAMILTON SALTWATER HANK: THE ROCK AND A TALL PLACE TOUR
Prairie songstress Raine Hamilton and mountain minstrel Saltwater Hank (of local folk/roots band Black Spruce Bog) are joining forces for a double-billed tour of northern BC, with a stop in Prince Rupert at Cowpuccino’s on Wednesday, July 20th, show starts at 7:30pm. Cover charge is $10.
The pair combine the open resonance of the prairie with the raw, exposed edges of the mountains; Their songs are connected with the land, drawn from lived experience, and created from the inside out. The result is a moving, honest, and nostalgic acoustic experience, blending Raine’s sage storytelling and Joni Mitchell-esque vocals, with Hank’s old-time temperament and earthy baritone. Between Raine and Hank and their backing band, expect to hear the fiddle, banjo, drums, and more acoustic guitars than you can count. Expect to leave with a full heart, smiling face, and tapping toes.
Saltwater Hank’s songs will take you on a journey from through the mountains of the Bulkey Valley to the Skeena, to the saltwater out west, down the coast and eastbound to the Kooteney’s. His stories are inspired by the people, the land and the water of the region he calls home.
Raine Hamilton writes resonant, acoustic folk with an other-worldly edge, prism-clear vocals, and a lyric presence that cuts deep. Raine invites her love of the violin into the singer-songwriter genre, writing for fiddle and voice, as well as for guitar and voice, sharing songs that move as they console. Each song is paired with a story, told with humour and grace. After these BC tour stops, Raine heads to Manitoba and Ontario.

” Past Your Past is a carefully crafted folk album that is gracefully familiar, and like Joni Mitchell’s Blue, you’ll want to listen to it over and over…Please, sit on your porch with your eyes closed and listen to this gem.”
