“Rube & Rake have cultivated a reputation as one of this province’s most immersive and must-see live acts” – The Newfoundland Herald


Performing together around a single condenser microphone, Rube & Rake engage audiences with a mixture of charming folk stories, intricate guitar work, and rich vocal harmonies. After working together for the past 6 years out of St. John’s, Newfoundland, Josh Sandu and Andrew Laite have fused an intimate musical connection that comes across in every new song and performance. 


Winners of the 2022 ECMA for Songwriter of Year, their sound evokes Blue Rodeo at its most rollicking, Great Lake Swimmers at their most thoughtful, and The Tallest Man On Earth at their most gently contemplative. Every song has a story behind it in the folk tradition of road-worn tales and lost love laments told across an ever-changing, often lonely landscape. Rube & Rake is for late-night wind-downs, long drives, a walk by the water: solitary and steadfast, honest and true.


Join us for an incredible evening of live folk music with Rube & Rake.
