Music in the Gardens: The Sadies (June 27)

A Canadian rock and roll / country and western band from Toronto, Ontario, The Sadies will be playing at Sarah P. Duke Gardens on Wednesday, June 27 at 7 pm.

Versatile and imaginative, they skip from astral psychedelia to shuffling bucolics and leap from puckish pop to righteous garage-rock without losing momentum or mastery. They’ve worked with a veritable roots-rock hall of fame, whether backing Neko Case for years, supporting Neil Young during a tribute to The Band, or joining X’s Jon Doe or Jon Spencer for full-length collaborations. But their albums, released since 2002 by North Carolina’s own Yep Roc, deliver masterclasses on pointed songwriting, lockstep harmonies, and a devil-may-care attitude to expectations and past successes.
