Canadian folk/rock duo Whitehorse will perform live at the Winnipeg Free Press News Café at noon today in another segment of Live at the News Café hosted by longtime Winnipeg music journalist John Kendle. The performance will be livestreamed.
A classic tale of musical romance continues for Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland, the husband-and-wife duo behind Whitehorse. After establishing themselves as successful solo artists, the pair teamed up for a debut, self-titled album in 2011 and followed it up in August 2012 with The Fate of the World Depends on This Kiss.
Individually, Luke and Melissa have been recognized with awards and nominations from the Juno Awards, the Canadian Folk Music Awards, the Hamilton Music Awards, the Independent Music Awards and Polaris. Their live show is built on Luke’s mesmerizing guitar work and the pair’s smouldering vocal harmonies.
Whitehorse plays Friday, Feb. 8 at the Burton Cummings Theatre. Tickets are on sale now for $33.25 at ticketmaster.ca.
