Alistair Christl Band Rockabily & Country!!

Thursday night is going to be extremely fun, as the Linsmore Tavern is bringing back local Rockabily King Alistair Christl!!! The reigning Canadian champion of “Hillbilly Bop” – a style that combines the best of Honky tonk, Country Swing, Roots Rockabilly, Jazz and Blues – Alistair’s musical approach is reverent to the past yet unique in style. Though thoroughly competent, Christl takes his music outside the box, viewing purists as a pack of snivelling weaklings bent on destroying creativity. What results is a road house throwback that can wake the dead.

Having spent over 10 years touring Canada and the States, Alistair has established himself as a dominant force in the roots music scene. From house concerts to burlesque festivals his music appeals across the board. An esteemed lyricist and songsmith, he’s released 2 CDs (Unmarked Grave 2007 and 8 Songs by Alistair Christl 2011), is currently working on a third, and has written and arranged music for theater and film. A versatile guitar slinger, Alistair has backed the likes of Rockabilly hall of famer Ronnie Hayward, Genie Nominee Terra Hazelton, Ginger St. James, Big Rude Jake and countless others; artists from whom he has learned much (and stolen a thing or two).  The show starts at 9pm, No Cover!!
