Event description
A night of harmony and storytelling, by a quartet who arranged the music right here on Colpoys Bay.

About this Event

Tragedy Ann [Guelph] is a forward-looking folk/singer-songwriter duo. Liv (a long-time Colpoys Bay cottager!) and Braden are collaborating with bilingual folk duo Moonfruits [Ottawa] in partnership with the Ontario Arts Council to present their inaugural European Tour, November 18-December 18.

This quartet presents ordinary people in unordinary ways, balancing humour with sober tone in concert, to connect with audiences and build community through art-making.

In advance of their European Tour, the quartet are retreating to Colpoys Bay to arrange each duo's original repertoire into a 4-piece presentation. Liv Cazzola's family cottage on Mallory Beach will be buzzing with creativity, from October 30-November 1! To capture and release the new arrangements, Moonfruits and Tragedy Ann are presenting this freshly rejuvenated collection of songs to the community surrounding these intensive sessions.

Imagine: layered vocal harmonies, acoustic and electric guitar, haunting banjo, accordion drones and melodies, bowed and struck glockenspiel, singing saw screeches, harp-inspired ukulele, driving hand-percussion, and twinkling kalimba.

Join Moonfruits and Tragedy Ann on November 2 to be the first audience to experience: The Lamplighters Tour.

About the musicians:

MOONFRUITS

Fronted by partners Alex Millaire and Kaitlin Milroy, Ottawa-based Moonfruits are makers of art-folk bilingue. In a forest of banjo, guitar, kalimba and glockenspiel, their voices burrow and soar. Here is a reverie, tender and powerful, beckoning listeners to elevate the stuff of everyday life.

Four-time 2019 Trille Or nominees, Moonfruits have toured Canada coast to coast, moving audiences with a live show that mixes French and English organically, playfully, intentionally. Their début full-length Ste-Quequepart (2017) \saint-kehk-pahr or Saint Somewhere\ is an elaborate small town fiction that explores the faces of gentrification, isolation and community.

TRAGEDY ANN

Tragedy Ann is a forward-looking folk duo from Guelph, Ontario.

Liv Cazzola and Braden Phelan find warmth in questions and daring in answers, making space for the tear that lies behind laughter. With intimacy and care, the duo favours a flashlight over a spotlight in songs for community, nature, and hardworking hospital staff. Braiding organic harmonies with accordion, singing saw, guitars, and ukulele, Tragedy Ann’s arrangements are as delicate as they are driving.

Their sounds and stories were most recently captured on September 2018’s release ‘Matches’, garnering them two ‘Songs from the Heart’ songwriting awards (Folk Music Ontario), national folk/roots radio charting, and syndication on CBC Radio and Stingray Music. Regularly touring across Canada (and, shortly, in Europe and the USA), Tragedy Ann concerts emanate “..the honesty and enthusiasm of people who can’t help but create and perform.” (Jon Farmer, Georgian Bay Roots).
