Event Archive - An evening of Women in Music: Genevieve and the Wild Sundays, Marin Patenaude, Apples

Thu. May 7th 2015 LanaLou's (All Ages)
9pm - 12am doors at 8pm
$10 at the door only.
Soaring harmonies, catchy songs, original folk-roots music: this is Genevieve and the Wild Sundays. The all-female quartet, featuring the award-winning songs of Vancouver-Island-based homesteading mama Genevieve Charbonneau, will be making their first visit to Vancouver, with a concert at LanaLou's on May 7. Opening the show will be vocalist and guitarist Marin Patenaude, and closing up the night will be heart-felt rock n' roll musician Apples.

The music of the Wild Sundays is rooted in folk and old-time country, incorporating bluegrass rhythms, Americana, pop, and a whole lot more. Genevieve and Kelly Sherwin (upright bass/vocals) are long-time members of award-winning vocal ensemble Balkan Babes, singing traditional folk music of the Balkan region. Kelly also contributes a bluegrass sensibility (Flash in the Pan and Ain’t Dead Yet), while Laura Carleton (percussion/vocals) brings a background of choral music (Vancouver Island Chamber Choir) and West African percussion (Moondance Dynamic Arts). Chandra Crowe (mandolin/vocals) adds training in Greek, Turkish, Balkan and Middle Eastern music (Yiddish Columbia State Orchestra) into the mix. This eclectic experience brings a fusion flavour to a predominantly old-time sound, with a focus on three- and four-part harmonies.
