Fred Eaglesmith returns to Winnipeg on Oct. 1.

Canadian alt-country music troubadour Fred Eaglesmith returns to Winnipeg to play the Park Theatre on Oct. 1.

His latest album, 2013’s Tambourine, was recorded with an old eight-track analog console in a community hall in Vittoria, Ont., and like the town, the music consciously avoids the mainstream.

Tickets go on sale Friday for $30 at ticketfly.com.

Calgary’s Fast Romantics, whose songs have been used on TV shows such as Shameless, Breaking In, Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars, will play the West End Cultural Centre on Aug. 15.

The band formed in 2008 when singer-songwriter Matthew Angus joined up with two other Calgarians, Jeffrey Lewis and Alain Reain, and two Australian expats, Shane O’Keeffe and Lauren Heron. They are touring in support of their latest album Afterlife Blues.

Winnipeg band the Hours is the opener.

Tickets are $15 at the West End Cultural Centre, Ticketmaster, Music Trader and the Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store.
