The Washboard Union

Saturday, July 23


The Washboard Union have defied classification and have become one of the most exciting and talked about new bands on the Canadian Country music scene.  They won Roots Artists of the Year by the British Columbia Country Music Association, have signed on with the country music powerhouse team at Sakamoto Entertainment and inked a recording deal Warner Music Canada/Slaight Music.

The Washboard Union are a sextet out of Vancouver, British Columbia that are led by principle members Aaron Grain, Chris Duncombe and David Roberts.  The three share a very similar unconscious soundtrack and unbridled love for the art of song-writing and storytelling.  The three have been friends seemingly forever and the music they make has set them apart as one of the most unique talents in country music today.

In January 2015, The Washboard Union returned to Nashville, Tennessee to record their latest EP ‘In My Bones’ in the legendary RCA Studio A.  Originally built in 1964 as the home for Chet Atkins, RCA has been home to some of the most prolific recording artists in Nashville’s rich history including Dolly Parton, Tony Bennett and The Beach Boys.

The Washboard Union is a band that you simply have to see live to fully appreciate and have been invited to share the stage with some of the biggest names in country music including Zac Brown Band, Lone Star, Keith Urban, Reba McEntire, The Band Perry, Big N Rich and more.
