    The Strange Valentines: New Album Coming!!

    January 31, 2017

    'Folkin Rock for Rockin Folk' will be the fourth album for 'The Strange Valentines' and this effort represents somewhat of a shift in style for the duo. Perhaps the recent move to Saskatchewan is responsible as many of the songs appear to have prairie inspirations. The music is somewhat of a musical mix of folk, rock, blues, and plays with great guitar, mandolin and banjo sounds. The two vocalists each sing main vocals and/or rich harmonies over a range of styles. Twelve songs on the album include themes of involving small towns, cold weather, jerks of the world, life in Saskatchewan, and a spider. It's a fun album and worth a listen. Due to be released in February/March 2017.

    Here's a song about two wonderful ladies who were affectionately known as the 'Snoop Sisters' as they drove a yellow Turcell all over town attending various card parties and tea drinking excursions. It is a preview song from our upcoming album, due to be released shortly. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we did making it.
