Indie folk artist Pat LePoidevin visits Governor’s Pub on Friday, June 3, for a show starting at 10 pm.
As one reviewer puts it, “Born in British Columbia, but now a proud Sackville, New Brunswick, resident, Pat Lepoidevin has quietly been making his ukulele heard across Canada.”
Pat LePoidevin uses a looper pedal to create a blend of sound using guitar, ukuleles, percussion, violin, and his notable deep melodic vocals. Carefully capturing one instrument at a time, he creates a complex multi-layered orchestra of folk. Having toured Canada twice, his words of wise polar bears and space-traveling wolves is being heard across the nation. His latest release, “Praise for Moonwolves”, came out in 2010.
Ryan Ringer of Broken Pencil Magazine describes LePoidevin’s stage show this way, “A big boyish-looking friendly guy, quiet, coming off as humbly thankful in the best possible way, Pat’s powerful voice and passionately heart-hitting lyrics gently shock and awe any enthusiastic listener into a genuine kind of man-I-gotta-get-this-guy’s-album feeling.”
Opening for LePoidevin is Mike Le Lievre, bassist for Slowcoaster and host of Governors Tuesday nights Open Mike sessions.
