The Fugitives are set to return to The Beggar’s Theatre with their brand new tour for 2017 on Friday 29th September 8pm!
Based in Vancouver The Fugitives last toured the UK and Europe in 2015 and return in 2017 to promote a new album. They bring brilliant musicianship, top-notch song-writing complex vocal harmonies and a funny uplifting vibe to their live performances!
Described as ‘the missing link between Leonard Cohen and The Pogues’, they have been nominated for Best Vocal Group at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, Best Roots Album at the Western Canadian Music Awards, opened for Canadian folk icon Buffy Sainte-Marie and also played a slot at Glastonbury Festival in 2014.
“Despite their all-acoustic lineup, the Fugitives bring enough energy to the stage to light up a small city… The East Van quartet conjures up a sound that’s like the missing link between Leonard Cohen, the Pogues, and the immortal Shorty Shitstain.” GEORGIA STRAIGHT
“The Fugitives are capable of achieving dizzying, Arcade Fire-ish crescendos, replete with parallel melodies, complex harmonies and brimming torrents of emotion.” UPTOWN MAGAZINE
“A sold-out crowd was fed harmonious chants and folksy carols…the music had us glued to our seats” SEE MAGAZINE
