Folk. February. Fandango.
Good things come in threes, dontcha know?
Ali McCormick, Moonfruits & The Lifers bring you a triple bill swimming in the places between boundaries – between the road and home, between people and their communities, between intimacy and catharsis. Music to heal what ails you.
Saturday, February 4th
Doors at 8:30 pm // Music at 9:30 pm // $10 at the door

Ali McCormick · www.alimccormick.com
Ali McCormick has been blazing her own trail on the Canadian music scene over the past few years with a beat up old Taylor and penchant for befriending all those she meets along the way. With a genuine drive to entertain and thirst for the open road she continues to intrigue audiences with her honest and impassioned performances.
Moonfruits · www.moonfruitsmusic.ca
Moonfruits summons music from a place where ideals and imagination intertwine. Partners on and off stage, Moonfruits’ soaring harmonies captivate listeners in two tongues, telling tales of knitting together and coming undone. Escorted by a banjo, a glockenspiel and a perfectly perforated parlour guitar, Moonfruits celebrates common ground.
Moonfruits “move together in a playful exchange, constantly in each other’s pocket, voices wound around each other, creating an almost singular entity in their sound.” – Terry Steeves, Apt613
The Lifers · www.thelifersmusic.com
The Lifers started with the velvety sister-harmony of Liv and Anita Cazzola and reached new strengths when The Lifers’ 6-piece collective took form. Their vocally-driven folk/rock approach straddles tender textures and explosive energy, drawing from Dan Mangan’s storytelling, Feist’s dynamic arrangements and The Staves’ vocal approach. With their intertwined voices and eclectic instruments, The Lifers are well equipped for the aggressive dynamics and diverse subject material that the sisters conjure. This Guelph-based band charms audiences with their incendiary performances, conversational and genuine interactions and homemade aesthetic. With a cross-Canada tour, LP “Out and In” (2016) and EP “Set the Sails” (2014) under their belts, The Lifers have been an unexpected gem at festivals such as Hillside and Summerfolk 2016.
