The folk-rock duo Acres & Acres comprise Kris Pope and David Scholten, formerly bandmates in art-rockers Down With The Butterfly. They now cover rootsier ground, to pleasingly melodic effect. The band's debut album, All Nations, earned them a 2011 East Coast Music Award nomination for Recording of the Year. The combination of lush soundscapes and well-crafted songwriting on Truth & Sky ups the ante nicely. They play a CD release show at Halifax’s All Nations Church on Nov. 24 at 8 p.m., joined by guest musicians and a string quartet. For other tour dates, go here.
