      Live Nation has announced that Canadian singer-songwriter John K. Samson will play a show at Imperial with his band the Winter Wheat on Thursday, February 2, in support of his second solo album, Winter Wheat.

      Winter Wheat was produced in garages and homes through a challenging Winnipeg winter by Samson’s partner and collaborator, Christine Fellows, and his Weakerthans co-founder and drummer/multi-instrumentalist Jason Tait, and mixed in the spring in Toronto by Robbie Lackritz (Bahamas, Feist).

      The spare arrangements also feature Greg Smith of The Weakerthans on electric bass, Ashley Au on double and electric bass, Leanne Zacharias on cello, and Shotgun Jimmie on electric guitar.

      Tickets for the show are $25 (plus service charges and fees), and go on sale this Friday (October 21) at 10 am at Live Nation.
      Tickets will also be available for purchase at Red Cat Records and by phone at 1-855-985-5000.
