The Wheat Pool are back! Celebrate the 10 year anniversary of their breakthrough album Hauntario at the Bailey!
The Wheat Pool was formed in winter of 2005 by four men seeking a voice for their rural obsessions and fierce penchant for dark county-rock. The result was a new cooperative, whose influences draw from fellow Edmontonians Old Reliable, Winnipeg’s The Weakerthans, Steve Earle, Neil Young, Blue Rodeo, early Wilco and Whiskeytown. The songs themselves stemmed from two brothers, who pen dark, driving country-rock songs that deal with timeless themes of death and good old-fashioned longing. These are songs that are best appreciated in your car, on a dirt road, late at night, chasing trains in the dark. After taking a hiatus to follow their individual goals in 2012, and playing a 5 year reunion show in 2017, the band has reformed and will be playing in Camrose!
