Kim Barlow - luckyburden
From Whitehorse • At The Engineered Air Theatre
Sit down at the Keno City Snack Bar, an outpost of history in the far north.
For over 70 years, Keno City was the epicentre of Yukon silver mining. People flocked there from around the world to live and work, building a flourishing community in the Gustavus Range, four hundred kilometres north of Whitehorse. Then, in 1989, the mines closed.
A heartbreakingly beautiful documentary by filmmaker Andrew Connors combines rarely-seen footage of Keno City’s boomtime with contemporary images of the derelict mines. With the film as a backdrop, Juno-nominated musician Kim Barlow performs live, crafting an exquisite portrait of Keno’s 20 remaining denizens in a folk-music soundscape of mixed blessings and rugged eccentricity.
“luckyburden is one of the best folk concept albums since Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska.”
