The Weakerthans’ John K Samson doesn’t participate in social media, so if you were hoping to spam his official Facebook page with “Come to Philly!” comments, you shouldn’t expect a response. Luckily, the Canadian singer/songwriter will indeed chart a course for World Cafe Live this April anyway with The Winter Wheat, his new live band.

Its name comes from his latest solo record, Winter Wheat, which he released last year. It features fellow Weakerthans members Jason Tait (drums) and Greg Smith (bass). With its chilly, sparse arrangements, the title really fits, so if that’s how you like your folk rock, this is a performance you won’t want to miss.
