Sunday, December 15, 2019 | 2:00pm The Ault Sisters $35 Advance / $40 Door * The Ault Sisters are a Toronto-based vocal jazz trio composed of 3 sisters – Amanda, Alicia, and Alanna Ault. They are known for their signature close harmonies, reminiscent of such past vocal groups as The Manhattan Transfer, The Andrew Sisters and The McGuire Sisters. They are extremely versatile singers, with a genre-defying repertoire that draws from jazz, pop, r&b, blues, funk, folk, and even classic rock. A show by The Ault Sisters show is normally comprised of a mix of standards and original tunes, carefully chosen to cater to the tastes of the venue and audience where they will be performing. This vocal trio has been producing music together for over a decade. On disc and in performance, different sisters take the lead on different tracks, adding to the vocal variety, while their intricately interwoven harmonies form a central part of the songs which they perform. In 2010, The Ault Sisters began working with Toronto producer, Greg Kavanagh, and released their second CD, Butterflies, which contained a mix of jazz and pop songs, reimagined to feature the girls’ three-part close harmonies. This was followed up by their most recent CD, Timeless, again produced by Kavanagh and released in 2014, which included the girls’ take on such classics as Boy From New York City, When I Fall In Love, Moondance and For Once In My Life. website: https://aultsisters.com/ youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvYqdGVX1-w * Advertised pricing excludes taxes and ticketing fees ** All-You-Can-Eat Brunch not included in in ticket priceFind out more »

The Regina Folk Festival is pleased to present Kacy & Clayton on Dec. 15th! “We were raised on cattle ranches where we learned how to play traditional country music because that’s what everyone wanted to hear.” The music Kacy and Clayton make is inextricable from where they grew up. They sing about the kind of people you’d find in Wood Mountain, Saskatchewan (population very few). The hills, barns and remoteness of the area are in these songs, with a bittersweet acknowledgement that this music has taken them far from home. Mojo magazine summed up as “A beautiful mix of Kacy's crystalline vocals and Clayton's inventive, deep-groove country guitar.” And a greater attention to detail in their songwriting; with narrative tales of loss, regret and yearning alongside vivid portraits of the Northern Great Plains and its isolated inhabitants. The songs “The Forty-Ninth Parallel,” “The South Saskatchewan River,” “Providence Place” and “That Sweet Orchestra Sound” were all written with local settings in mind - with the latter a tribute to the rural dance bands of the area, who referred to themselves as ‘orchestras.’ One such band, the Romansky Orchestra from Fir Mountain featured Kacy’s Grandpa Carl in their line-up when he was in his teens. “Our songs for this album are inspired by rural living of the past and present, highlighting the toll that urban dwelling can take on first generation kids moving out of the country into the city.” Ellen Froese will be starting off the night. Bar opens at 7:00PM Doors open at 7:30 PM Show starts at 8:00 PM Advance tickets - 22 Tickets at the door - 27Find out more »

Sunday, December 15, 2019 | 8:30pm Boreal (Tannis Slimmon, Katherine Wheatley, Angie Nussey) $25 Advance / $30 Door * Award winning singer-songwriters, Tannis Slimmon and Katherine Wheatley will be joined by their new band mate, Angie Nussey to perform their show “Song’s For The Snowy Season”. With glorious voices, stunning harmonies, humourous stories and top-notch songwriting, Boreal celebrates the coming of winter and the spirit of the holiday season. Like a glowing fire and a steaming mug of hot chocolate, Boreal’s “Songs For The Snowy Season” is the perfect antidote to a cold winter’s night. “Boreal throws a cozy blanket around their audience with beautiful harmonies and heart-warming songs.” – Folkway Music These three Canadian songstresses have dug up old songs and written new ones about winter. Their lyrics conjure up vivid sights and sounds that so many Canadians would recognize: pine branches bending low, squirrels’ footprints in the snow, winter’s hush, the icy breath that goes with shovelling, the sound of slap shots off the boards, the angel truck drivers who lead us home in blizzards. Boreal’s rapport with each other and with the audience, is warm, friendly, and genuine. Their love of harmonies, their combined song writing skills, their tour de force voices, and the joy they feel singing with each other all make for an unforgettable event. Join the others who make it a tradition to come every year to welcome winter at one of Boreal’s shows. CHANGES ARE AFOOT FOR BOREAL THIS SEASON Changes are afoot in 2019. Jude Vadala, a member of the trio since 2006, is stepping away from the stage to spend more time in her important role as uber grandmother. Tannis, Katherine and Jude are so grateful to have shared laughs, music and the stage with each other since Boreal began in 2006 around Jude’s kitchen table. Boreal begins their 2019 season on November 30 in Innisfil with their new band mate, Angie Nussey. Angie is a beautiful singer and great pianist who writes both incredibly moving and downright funny songs. She grew up in Lively, Ontario (near Sudbury) and has plenty of, you guessed it, songs about snow.
