Show Review: Wild Rivers – Fete Music Hall – (02.18.22)

Photos and review by Nathan Fitzgerald 

Canadian folk band Wild Rivers came through Providence, RI on their headliner for their new album “Sidelines” with support from California-based Corey Harper. The show had been sold out for weeks.

Corey Harper opened the show with his acoustic guitar and played a selection of newer and older songs. Opening with “Charlotte’s Wine” from his 2016 acoustic EP, he immediately gathered the crowds attention in what was one of the more intimate venues on the tour. Corey played songs off of his upcoming album and brought Devan of Wild Rivers onstage to play “Almost” together. Corey finished the setlist off with a crowd favorite “Blind.”

Wild Rivers opened the set with “Left Off” off of their 2020 EP “Songs to Break Up To.” Playing old hits and new tracks from their recently released full-length, Wild Rivers offered a song to appease any listener. The band switched from slow break-up songs to upbeat folk bops like “Stubborn Heart.” The crowd was singing along to every song. The band brought Corey Harper on stage to play electric guitar while they finished the show with “Thinking ‘Bout Love” and the crowd went wild.
