The Paperboys

Venue: Lichfield Guildhall

Sunday 05 November 2017: 8.00pm

For two decades, The Paperboys have been touring the world and lighting up stages with their free-wheeling blend of influences from Celtic and bluegrass, to Mexican son jarocho, brass bands, and Canadian roots.

They’ve been called everything from Cajun slamgrass to worldbeat, they’ve received a Juno award (Canadian Grammy), plus two Juno nominations and released nine albums.

At Peace With One’s Ghosts, the first new Paperboys album in six years, is full of The Paperboys’ signature sounds: Spanish-language songs that reflect Mexican heritage, explosive brass lines from their extended 8-piece ensemble, Celtic fiddle and pennywhistle blazing through an old reel, English rock songs with strong pop influences and a kind of melting pot sound that reflects not only the
diversity of the band’s home city, Vancouver, but also a larger vision of what modern Canadian roots music should sound like.

The Paperboys are poised to bring their adventurous vision of Canadian roots music to dancehalls everywhere, spreading good cheer and great music.An absolutely outstanding band we challenge anyone not to like.
