It was something a little daring

and a little different at the

Community Centre on Halloween


Vancouver-based, Red Haven,

who are currently touring, performed

at the Community Centre

Theatre for a concert and masquerade


“We’ve just come back from

the Folk Music Ontario Conference

in Toronto,” band member

Brendan Steele said.

Red Haven, are also celebrating

a new album release called,

Vilifi ed. The band, together

two years, says that they have

stepped outside of their comfort

zone with this album and that it’s

much more cohesive and mature.

Brendan Steele, on vocals and

guitar, says that Red Haven has

been infl uenced by bands such as

The Devil Makes Three, Regina

Spektor and the swing bands of

Frenchman Street in New Orleans.

Red Haven: a Halloween hit

Red Haven’s lead vocalist, sax and

accordion player, Jennifer Charters

brings a gypsy-jazz edge to the textured

folk of guitarist Brendan Steele,

drummer Jesse Thom and doublebassist

Nathan Turner.

According to the band, their music

is reminiscent of 1920’s jazz, 1960’s

folk and fi rst century composition.

Just before their performance, a

burlesque show entertained the various

clowns, cowboys, witches and

other masquerade goers as they fi lled

the venue.

It was a Halloween fi lled with fun,

fl are and great talent.
