Rae Spoon and Kim Barlow and Mohammad Sahraei
Rae Spoon and Kim Barlow are two seasoned musical non-conformists who have teamed up with newcomer Mohammad Sahraei for a Canada-wide tour in March 2020 that will take them from Yukon to Wakefield, Quebec. The eclectic trio performs arrangements of Kim’s and Rae’s songs for setar and banjo, guitar, keys, percussion and electronics. Kim and Mohammad have been finding the places where banjo and setar overlap, and joyfully meshing their musical worlds for the past year. These new versions of Kim & Rae’s indie pop songs, with traditional tunes peppered through two sets, make for a live performance that is vibrant, diverse, and beautiful.
Rae Spoon is a nonbinary musician and author in Victoria BC. They have released ten solo albums and have toured across Canada and internationally. Rae owns and runs an indie record label called Coax Records that has released thirty-seven albums by Canadian and international artists. They have been nominated for two Polaris Prizes, a Lambda Literary Award and a Western Canadian Music Award.
Kim Barlow is an enduring presence in the Canadian indie scene, Yukon-based but now back in Nova Scotia, starting fresh. Her newest album, How to Let Go features some of the East Coast’s best, produced by Mark Adam with Old Man Luedecke guest vocals. It was nominated for a 2019 Nova Scotia Music Award for Folk Recording of the Year. Barlow recently joined the Coax Records label.
Mohammad Sahraei is an ethnomusicologist, skilled on many
traditional Persian instruments. His ensemble, Open Borders, a
group of 30 international musicians, have performed at the
Halifax Jazz Festival, Obey Festival, Upstream, Multicultural
Festival, Feast Festival, and Iranian and Indian Festivals.
Mohammad teaches and holds master classes and workshops
