Salt Lake City, UT: Fresh off their Grammy win for Best Contemporary Folk Album, Ray LaMontagne & the Pariah Dogs will headline the 2011 Summer Solstice Show, Saturday, June 18, 7 p.m. at Library Square in downtown Salt Lake City. Supporting acts are Brandi Carlile and The Secret Sisters.
LaMontagne & the Pariah Dog’s Grammy award-winning album God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Digital Album chart. This marked a personal-sales-best for LaMontagne and tied his debut chart position at #3 with “Gossip in the Grain.” The single, “Beg Steal or Borrow” became his first radio #1 on the AAA BDS and Mediabase. The Associated Press called the album “one of the year’s best,” while the New York Daily News’ 5 star review said the album is “one of the stand out releases of the year.”
The “Pariah Dogs” are Jay Bellerose (drums), Jennifer Condos (bass), Eric Heywood (guitar) and Greg Leisz (pedal steel guitar).
Singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile’s albums include her breakout sophomore release The Story (2007) and its highly regarded follow-up Give Up the Ghost (2009).
Retro country up-and-comers, The Secret Sisters’ self-titled album debut was produced by T Bone Burnett and their debut 45 was released by Jack White’s Third Man Records.
