A Capella Weekend

Friday, May 10th, 2013

I'm performing in three a capella shows this weekend! 

On Saturday May 11th, kith&kin, the vocal trio I sing in with my mother Kathleen McDonnell and sister Martha Farquhar-McDonnell, will be performing an a capella set as part of Habourfront Centre's SING! Vocal Arts Festival . We'll be performing at 5pm sharp in the Lakeside Terrance and the show is FREE! We're excited to be premiering some new songs that we've recorded for our next album!

This Friday and Saturday (May 10 and 11) I'll be doing two shows with my dear friend Isla Craig and our recently-christened girl group Soul Sisters Supreme Redux 2.0 (for real!). This a an amazing group - Tamara Lindeman (the Weather Station), Daniela Gesundheit (Snowblink), and Felicity Williams (Bahamas and Hobson's Choice) round out the crew! We'll be singing music off Isla's recently-released Both the One and the Other tape, as well as putting our own spin on some traditional vocal music. We will be doing these two shows entirely a capella! These concerts are being presented by Weird Canada and the Suoni Per il Popolo festival, and are really not to be missed! More information about both shows is here.

Here is Isla and the Soul Sisters' new video for "Played in the Cards". Beautifully shot by Yuula Benivolski and danced by Mairi Greig.
