Armed with two guitars and an old suitcase drum, to say this Americana duo is greater than the sum of their parts would be a vast understatement. Winnie Brave has been hailed as one of Alberta’s best kept secrets. Known for their dynamic and energetic shows, Winnie Brave is a sonic force to be reckoned with.
This husband and wife team, Brad and Amy, have carved out a family business from their shared love of the game. Drawing inspiration from their extensive travels throughout Canada and the USA, their songs reflect on small town life and the interesting folks who happen to cross their paths.
Winnie Brave has been performing for 10 years. In 2012, the couple decided they wanted a new way of life. In 2013, they recorded their self-titled debut album. Featuring a collection of songs inspired by their recent journey, it would become the foundation for a new direction. By 2016 they were travelling all over the US and Canada in their 1976 Winnebago – from which they took their name.
They have been performing in the RGV for a little over a year, but have performed at SPI for three years.
Although they call Cardston, Alberta, Canada home, they are in the RGV January through March to provide entertainment to the Winter Texan parks.
