Kliffs bring Temporary Cures to Campbell River

December 14, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Berlin-based Canadian indie-pop band Kliffs are finishing up a fifteen city cross-Canada tour with shows in Vancouver, Victoria and Campbell River’s Rivercity Stage where they’ll be joined by long-time friends the Cumberland Brothers.

Kliffs are the duo of Mark Bérubé (guitar, keys, voice) and Kristina Koropecki (cello, synths, voice), joined by Montreal’s Marc-André Pételle and Hugo Chaput on bass and drums. Originally from Brandon, Manitoba, Bérubé’s 15+ year career has included time in Vancouver where he was a founding member of the Fugitives and regular guest and collaborator of Dan Mangan (Bérubé’s voice is all over Mangan’s celebrated album Nice, Nice, Very Nice) and in Montreal where Koropecki first joined Mark Berube and the Patriotic Few 10 years ago. The two toured together numerous times across Canada and Europe, and eventually re-locating to Berlin, Germany in 2014. After a brief hiatus for other projects including Koropecki touring with Danish superstar Agnes Obel, the two teamed up again in 2018 as a duo under their new name.

Kliffs just released their first full-long album last week entitled Temporary Cures which has been called “a beautiful, exquisitely arranged amalgamation of the two artists’ talents.” Indeed while the twelve songs do showcase Bérubé’s poetic verses, it’s the instrumental arrangements and interplay of voices, cello, synthesizers, guitar and rhythm that make Kliffs stand out.

Joining Kliffs on the bill are the Cumberland Brothers featuring Archie Pateman, Jack Roland and Corwin Fox bravely bringing old-time country into an uncertain future. The night promises to be another memorable Highway 19 concert presentation you don’t want to miss.

As with all Highway 19 concerts, $5 tickets area available for teens and kids are free with an adult.
