Live music. Close to home. The Secrets will be playing at Arbor Gallery Cultural Centre on Sunday, October 30 at 7:30 p.m. as part of the Home Routes concert series.
Home Routes gives music-lovers a chance to meet performers and take in small, informal concerts in an informal setting.
How does it work? Karla Pilgrim – guitar and bass, Terri Lynn Eddy – guitar, mandolin and harmonica, and Renée Batten – guitar, accordion, fiddle, mandolin and bass will do two sets at Arbor Gallery with a short intermission/snack break in between sets.
Everyone attending is asked to pay a $20 admission fee, all of which goes to the performers.
The Secrets launched their trio opening for country music legend Alan Jackson’s Freight Train Tour in 2010, and since 2012 have been taking their music across the country and opening three sold out shows for country superstar Tim McGraw at Mile One Centre in St. John’s, NL.
The Secrets headed to Nashville in spring 2014 to record at Beech Creek Studios. Their producer/co-writer, Peter Daniel Newman gathered some of that city’s finest session players – including Pat McGrath, Gordon Mote, Duncan Mullins, JT Corenflos, Steve Brewster, Andy Leftwich and Dan Dugmore – to support The Secrets in bringing their chosen songs to life.
Break Even – their debut album was released in June 2014 and features a combination of The Secrets’ originals, the album title track and lead single “Break Even”, written by fellow east coast musicians Chris Kirby and Tim Chaisson, several co-writes with Peter Daniel Newman (including their second single titled “Big Time”), and a bluegrass cover of the Avicii hit “Hey Brother” – all delivered with the natural harmonies that are The Secrets’ signature sound. Break Even was subsequently named Country Recording of the year at the 2014 MusicNL Awards, and nominated in this same category for the 2015 East Coast Music Awards.
