Winnie Brave delivers foot-stompin’ music

The husband-wife duo hail from Alberta and gave up farming to lead a “life less ordinary”

Winnie Brave is bringing their foot-stompin’ music to the Dream Café on July 5.

The husband-wife duo is comprised of Amy McIsaac on vocals and guitar and “one-man-band” Brad McIsaac taking on bass, foot drums and keys. The couple hails from Alberta and gave up a life of farming to pursue a “life less ordinary,” according to their website, packing up “only the essentials” and hitting the road to travel 7,000 kilometres in three months.

Their self-titled debut album was recorded in Ontario in 2013 and features a collection of songs that were inspired by their road trip the previous year. Their band name, Winnie Brave, comes from their 1976 Winnebago which they used to tour with their debut album over 20,000 road miles for nine months in 2016.

The McIsaacs would go on to release their next album, Cheap Gin, in 2017 after “hunkering down in an old church-turned-recording-studio” in Ontario. They’ve toured across Canada and the U.S. extensively to promote this latest work.

“With two albums under their belt and thousands of shows played throughout Canada and the U.S.A., this highly-entertaining and energetic duo are a sonic force to be reckoned with,” states the Dream Café’s release.

The doors for the event open at 6 p.m. and the show kicks off at 8 p.m. Premium tickets are $22 each and wings tickets are $12 each. Those interested in reserving seats can contact the Dream Café at 250-490-9012.
