The Linsmore Tavern is so happy and excited to welcome back one of the best original bands in the city, Maria Ryan & Chris Bennett and the Fellas on Thursday May 18th! Maria Ryan & Chris Bennett and the fellas played last month and absolutely captivated the many in attendece! We couldn't be anymore excited to welcome this fine group of musicians performing some incredible original music that can be described as a mix or rock, roots, blues and a tiny splash of punk!
Maria Ryan & Chris Bennett are a duo based in Toronto, ON, Canada. After years involved in separate musical pursuits, they came together in 2013 to blend Maria’s honey soaked gravel voice and percussive rhythm guitar playing with Chris’s artful layers of lead guitar work and vocal harmonies.
Both songwriters, their original material is a collaborative effort in which they explore themes that include lust, love, betrayal and longing. Maria and Chris also enjoy covep up on short notice and if you are a music fan, you have to see this band perform live!
With a mix of rock, roots, blues and a tiny splash of punk, they are often compared to The Decemberists, Patti Smith and late 60's era Rolling Stones. Their self-titled debut album was released in October of 2015.
The show starts at 8:30pm, there's no cover so come on out and check out this incredible band!ering a select few songs and switching them up with their own distinctly dark twist.
