A former member of Spirit of the West and now living out of Nashville, Linda McRae is performing at the Dream Café on Friday, Feb. 1.

McRae’s fourth solo release, Rough Edges & Ragged Hearts, was nominated by the Canadian Folk Music Awards for album of the year. This confirms her maturing distinction as a quality songwriter and recording artist.

McRae earned several accolades while playing with Spirit of The West. She departed the band after eight years to resume her solo career producing three consecutive critically acclaimed recordings. Performing on claw hammer banjo, acoustic guitar, accordion and porch board stomp box, McRae combines old-time sounds with universal themes of heartbreak and redemption.

Showtime at the Dream Café is at 8 p.m., tables available from 6 p.m. Call 250-490-9012 for reservations. Tickets are $12.
