Formed in Toronto in 2002, this alt country trio has carved out a pretty decent niche for itself with its multi-instrumentation and often dark and surreal lyrics. Considering that the band’s name was reportedly derived from a murderous female character in the 1984 baseball flick The Natural (Harriet Bird, actually) the band comes by its dark side honestly.
In 2014 the trio released their sixth full-length album called Work & Love. And on Wednesday Feb. 10 they’re in town to play a show at the Exchange that’s being presented by the Regina Folk Festival Concert Series. The back-up act is Nick Faye, and you can find out more information on the RFF website.
Here’s video from 2014 of Elliott Brood playing a song called “Jigsaw Heart” off their latest album:
