Larlee Creek Hullabaloo is known as the “little festival that could”, and it’s not hard to see why when you see the immense talent that it offers. Larlee Creek Hullabaloo takes place in Perth-Andover, NB and brings out the best of the best when it comes to East Coast talent! We are excited to team up with the festival to present you with a series of interviews that we conducted with some of the performers. To start things off, we chatted with Halifax based Christine Campbell, then Toronto based Samantha Martin of Samantha Martin & Delta Sugar and finally, we made it to Halifax based, Hillsburn! The days until the festival are winding down, but we still have more interviews for you! Today, we are focused on the Kendra Gale Band! Enjoy!
First off, care to introduce yourself to the Canadian Beats readers?
I am Kendra Gale of the Kendra Gale Band
Larlee Creek Hullabaloo may be a “little” festival, but it’s jam packed with talent, what does it feel like to be involved in this particular festival?
We are really excited to be a part of it this year! We’ve heard so many good things and people kept telling us they would love to see us there, and we can’t wait to be there!
Are there any specific artists/bands that you’re excited to see at Larlee Creek Hullabaloo?
I hope I catch Samantha Martin and Delta Sugar, I saw them once at the Red Herring Pub in St. Andrews and I thought they were amazing.
Are you performing at any other festivals this summer that you’d like to tell us about?
We are playing Smokin Blues in Windsor NS July 28th, Blues D’La Baie in Petit-Rocher NB on the 29th,
Fogfest on Campobello August 6th and Freedom Fest in Harvey NB August 12th.
If someone has yet to see you live, how would you describe your live show?
We are a rock two piece with a full band sound. We’ve been told quite a few times that people thought there was a three or four piece band on stage before they turn the corner and see theres only the two of us up there.
If you were only able to recommend ONE song for a new listener, which would you choose?
I might recommend “All You Do”. It’s not one of our heaviest songs and not the softest, it’s kind of in the middle but still gives you the feel of how most of a show would sound.
Here at Canadian Beats, we’re all about Canadian talent, who are some of your favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
Some of my favourites are Jessie Brown (NS), Little Foot Long Foot (ON), Lionsault (NB), the Dibiases (NB) and the Galpines (NB)
What’s up next for you?
Next up is PEI Jazz night at Babas in Charlottetown on July 27th
