June 4 Folkus Concert: The Pairs & Tragedy Ann

In light of the announcement on January 3rd by the Government of Ontario that indoor concert venues be closed until at least January 26, our first concert of the season (originally scheduled for Jan 29th) has been rescheduled for Saturday, June 4 at 8:00 p.m.

We really wanted to put these two bands on our stage because they absolutely love to sing, and they bring a delightful energy to the stage. 

Tragedy Ann are based in Guelph. With intimacy and care, Liv Cazzola and Braden Phelan favour a flashlight over a spotlight in songs for community, nature, and hardworking hospital staff. Braiding organic vocal harmonies with accordion, singing saw, guitars, and ukulele, Tragedy Ann’s arrangements are as delicate as they are driving.

The Pairs are a joyous and energetic female-fronted folk-pop group hailing from London, Ontario. Led by the powerhouse (classically trained) vocals of Renee and Noelle Coughlin and Hillary Watson. They are backed by recovering punk drummer Steve Plimmer. The Pairs create acoustic harmony pop tunes grounded in unique rhythms that will hug your ear drums and inspire you to dance.

This performance, like all Folkus concerts this season, will also be live-streamed from the Almonte Old Town Hall. The same venue and gorgeous acoustics, the sound quality will be exceptional for anyone choosing to watch from home. In-person and virtual tickets available. Anyone purchasing / holding an in-person ticket will have access to the streamed concert should they decide that in-person attendance doesn’t feel comfortable on the day.

The cost of a virtual ticket to watch the streamed concert is a household ticket price, meaning if there are two or four of you watching together, it’s still just $20. If you wish to purchase more than one ticket out of support, however, we and the artists you are supporting thank you very much!
