Cam Penner and Jon Wood are taking over the Tap Room at Medicine Hat Brewing Co. on their At War With Reason Tour, June 5th, at 7pm!
Canadian Cam Penner is an international touring singer/song-writer. His music has been featured on NPR’s, All Music Considered, BBC’s 2016 mini-series Stonemouth, and has charted on the Folk Billboard Chart’s Top Twenty.
Cam together with Jon Wood – his musical cohort and electric guitar and lap steel sound sculptor – have toured their traveling show extensively through Canada and Europe. The symphony of sound and lyricism showcase the inevitable evolution of this duo. The live show is as fragile as it is grand. Like watching a tight rope walker or a trapeze artist at work. It’s folk. It’s rock n’ roll. It’s Cam Penner and Jon Wood breathing fire into every note and lyric.
On Cam Penner’s seventh and newest release At War With Reason you’ll find mystery and menace, love and humility, savage blues and tender romances, sounds one can imagine primitive humans heard, allied with tribal ritual and chain gang hollers, delta moans and sylvan murmurs all summoned up by these two Canadians armed with two guitars, a drum kit and a tape loop.They have been touring the new album through the Netherlands, Belgium, Ireland, Wales, England and Scotland for the last few months. Both the live and album reviews have been staggering. This is not like any show you’ve seen. The captivating come together of these two artists is a marvel to listen to. Don’t miss out.
‘Together they are unstoppable.’

‘This is the Folk Troubadour, playing the studio like a big instrument. A rhyme spitting malevolent guitar slinger for the mad max generation, as much influenced by Ginsberg, Gil Scott Heron and Steve Earle’s curled lip snarl as Dylan.”…Layered, textured but taut and funky with drive. Lights on or lights off, fans of Daniel Lanois, The Neville Brothers, RL Burnside, even The White Stripes will find a kindred spirit and rewarding listen.’
– Marc Higgins Northern Sky
