Jimmy Rankin’s Moving East Tour is coming to the deCoste.
One of the true originals in Canadian music, Jimmy Rankin has moved back from Nashville to Nova Scotia. To celebrate, he’s on tour with the launch of his new homecoming album Moving East. It features true stories, tall tales, bittersweet ballads and the classic folk-rock sound that Rankin helped pioneer. Teaming up with fellow Nova Scotian Joel Plaskett as producer, he’s made an album appealing to young and old alike. It features songs running the gamut from gritty pub tunes to soulful ballads, all featuring great storytelling and fine songwriting.
Joining him on stage is celebrated Canadian roots musician, Ashley MacIsaac who has garnered international acclaim by playing the fiddle in that hard-nosed, traditional Cape-Breton style, while adding his own spin, mixing genres and updating Celtic music to appeal to a broader spectrum of fans. MacIsaac constantly pushed the traditional styles of Celtic music as he grew up and incorporated rock, pop, and everything imaginable in between.
