SPOTLIGHT: The Compassion Pills
The Compassion Pills are from Whitehorse, Yukon. The band began as the duo of Claire: vocals; keys and Sam Gallagher: lap steel. Together they have performed their original alternative folk blues music at the Guild Theatre, the Gold Pan Saloon in Whitehorse, the Village Bakery in Haines Junction, and the late, lamented Keno City Hotel. Following a residency at the Jenni House in October of 2021, the duo decided more musicians were needed to flesh out their musical ideas. Thus, The Compassion Pills were formed. They have performed their original northern folk & blues on stages such as the Guild Theatre and the Gold Pan Saloon in Whitehorse, the Globe Theatre in Atlin, the Village Bakery in Haines Junction, and the lamented Keno City Hotel.
If you want to see The Compassion Pills live, we have good news! They’ll be sharing the stage with Elijah Bekk and The Half Cuts at Lefty’s Well in Whitehorse on Friday, October 21st at 9:30 pm. 15$ at the door
