Late show: The Once, guests Kev Corbett, and John Pippus
*** Newfoundland trio (and Juno nominees) The Once grace the Railway Club for what will be a remarkable night of Roots and Traditional music. Read what the critics have to say:
“Whether they keep it a cappella or pile on layers of accordion, bouzouki, mandolin and guitar, each track is a treat. Geraldine Hollett’s strong, clear voice and the rich vocal harmonies of bandmates Phil Churchill and Andrew Dale brim with passion and warmth…It’s time for the rest of the country to listen up.”
-Rachel Sanders, Exclaim

These three Newfoundlanders gracefully and evocatively offer gem-like maritime music – foot-stomping shanties, heart-rendering ballads, salt-aired interpretations (of Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen tunes) and a cappella three-part harmonies thicker than Mama Cass’s midriff. The drinkable Geraldine Hollett is the pure-voiced starlet, riveting on the soloed Marguerite. Something singular is happening here, you bet.”
Brad Wheeler, Globe and Mail
