Born in the bustling market of the 'limestone city' (Kingston, Ontario) in the fall of '96, Luther Wright & the Wrongs have come in from the cold to play their traditional-style, country-folk music to one and all.
This past summer, as well as doing a 5 week residency gig in Kingston, they performed live in Toronto at the 'Tast of the Danforth Festival', at Blue Rodeo's 'Stardust Ball' in Old Fort York as well as NXNE and in Kingston at the 'All Folks Festival.' Response to the Luther Wright and the Wrongs live show has been great. The charisma of the band, the quality of Luther's songs, and the 'oh so sweet' singing and playing evole both chuckeles and tears.
Their debut CD "Hurtin' for Certain" is jam-packed with gems. Co-produced with Weeping Tile's Sarah Harmer, it was recorded in two week-ends last spring in Hamilton and Kingston. Musically reminiscent of early John Prine, it is tasetfully spiced with fiddle, mandoline, and steel guitars over steady country beats.
Luther Wright and Cam Giroux play in Kingston's Weeping Tile and devote their excess energy to the development of 'the Wrongs' music and live show. Rounding out 'the line-up, San Kelly plays bass, Brian Flynn plays the fiddle, and Dan Curtis plays banjo, slide guitar and mandoline. These good-time Charlies are singer/song-writers in their oun "Wright" whose talent inject feeling and fraternity into 'the Wrongs' easy-on-the-ears goodness.
