We’re now on the home stretch of our CD Release concerts- VICTORIA on FRIDAY and COWICHAN on SATURDAY! It’s been fun and tiring and so great to play so much, gel together and also play with our concerts guests, Catherine Black on SSI, and Ivonne Hernandez in Victoria and Tasia MacKay for Victoria and Cowichan. We are SO looking forward to this week-end!!
In Nanaimo we had a radio spot- interview and played live– on CHLY and we got a stellar review from Dave O Rama for BC Musician Magazine’s Summer festival guide!! Check it out!!
Singer-songwriter Genevieve Charbonneau steps up front to lead her trio of Wild Sundays through twelve acoustic original treats filled with shimmering harmonies and polished musicianship.
An active musical collaborator and trainer dancer hailing from the Cowichan Valley, Charbonneau has played in several music projects, including the Twisted Vine String Band, and the award winning Balkan Babes.
Backed by fellow Balkan Babe, Kelly Sherwin (Ain’t Dead Yet, Flash in the Pan) on upright bass, percussion and vocalist Laura Carleton (kivaBEAT), and multi-instrumentalist Chandra Crowe holding it down on mandolin, Charbonneau’s Wild Sundays float through your ears like bluegrass angels.
All the musicians here have collaborated with one another in a variety of Vancouver Island bands and choirs, bringing with them a love for old timey string music, West African rhythms, and flavors from the Balkans, Turkey and the Middle-East.
The playing on Fine Line is accomplished, the production by Wynn Gogol at One Ton Studios is highly polished, and the harmonies are glorious and truly inspiring. More sweet than salty, much more whimsical than jaded, the songs on Fine Line go down like cold iced tea in a sun kissed garden on a lazy hazy afternoon.
