Boreal (Tannis Slimmon, Katherine Wheatley, Angie Nussey)

Boreal (Tannis Slimmon, Katherine Wheatley, Angie Nussey)
$25 Advance / $30 Door *

Award winning singer-songwriters, Tannis Slimmon and Katherine Wheatley will be joined by their new band mate, Angie Nussey to perform their show “Song’s For The Snowy Season”. With glorious voices, stunning harmonies, humourous stories and top-notch songwriting, Boreal celebrates the coming of winter and the spirit of the holiday season. Like a glowing fire and a steaming mug of hot chocolate, Boreal’s “Songs For The Snowy Season” is the perfect antidote to a cold winter’s night.

“Boreal throws a cozy blanket around their audience with beautiful harmonies and heart-warming songs.” – Folkway Music

These three Canadian songstresses have dug up old songs and written new ones about winter. Their lyrics conjure up vivid sights and sounds that so many Canadians would recognize: pine branches bending low, squirrels’ footprints in the snow, winter’s hush, the icy breath that goes with shovelling, the sound of slap shots off the boards, the angel truck drivers who lead us home in blizzards. Boreal’s rapport with each other and with the audience, is warm, friendly, and genuine. Their love of harmonies, their combined song writing skills, their tour de force voices, and the joy they feel singing with each other all make for an unforgettable event. Join the others who make it a tradition to come every year to welcome winter at one of Boreal’s shows.

CHANGES ARE AFOOT FOR BOREAL THIS SEASON

Changes are afoot in 2019. Jude Vadala, a member of the trio since 2006, is stepping away from the stage to spend more time in her important role as uber grandmother. Tannis, Katherine and Jude are so grateful to have shared laughs, music and the stage with each other since Boreal began in 2006 around Jude’s kitchen table.

Boreal begins their 2019 season on November 30 in Innisfil with their new band mate, Angie Nussey. Angie is a beautiful singer and great pianist who writes both incredibly moving and downright funny songs. She grew up in Lively, Ontario (near Sudbury) and has plenty of, you guessed it, songs about snow. Welcome Angie!

OH SUSANNA
This Canadian songstress has a voice that can pierce a heart of stone. Her superbly crafted songs often tell stories of troubled souls who rebel against their circumstances to attain a quiet dignity. These are tales of longing and love, of small town joys and pains, of our simple feelings and strong passions. These are tales that look into our beautifully flawed human hearts.

Performing since 1996, Oh Susanna has released eight critically acclaimed albums.  She is the recipient of a Genie Award for Best Original Song and a Canadian Folk Music Award for English Songwriter of the Year. She has also been nominated for two Juno Awards each for Best Roots and Traditional Album of the Year, as well as two Canadian Folk Music Awards for Best Solo Performer and for Best Contemporary Singer of the Year. This year she released A Girl in Teen City, an album of songs set in 1980s Vancouver starring a teenage punk girl named Suzie. The album has been met with high critical acclaim and has earned three Canadian Folk Music Award nominations: English Songwriter of the Year, Contemporary Singer of the Year and Producer of the Year. Today, Oh Susanna lives in Toronto with her husband and son, and her music can be found LIVE this holiday season at Hugh’s Room Live.
