HOPE & HOPS: A musical fundraising series hosted by Tragedy Ann
We’re collaborating with the folks at Brothers Brewing Company and Nik at GAIN Music to present a matinee concert once every season, each in support of a different local charity! There is no cover, but we will be passing the hat around for donations – please give generously for these terrific causes!
Our inaugural ‘Hope & Hops’ charity is Wyndham House, who do a tonne of good in Guelph when it comes to assisting low-income youth and working to end youth homelessness in our community.
‘Hope & Hops’ is also an opportunity for us to introduce some of our best musical pals from out of town, and we will be featuring a special guest set with every instalment. This time ’round it will be Basset the Band!
Where: Brothers Brewing Co. (Downtown Guelph)
Accessibility: Space is wheelchair accessible and has an accessible washroom.
Event is All-Ages.
Cover: Nope, but donate if you’re able, and artists will have CDs available!
About Wyndham House:
Wyndham House provides youth with housing, educational alternatives, social supports and programming that supports a successful transition into adulthood.
Basset (duo set):
Basset is a new all-acoustic outfit from Toronto admired for their “fresh and distinct sound”. While they draw on folk traditions from both sides of the pond in their use of fiddle, mandolin and cello, their inventive style also borrows elements of jazz, soul, classic rock, and classical music. From tender ballads to driving blues, Basset charms audiences with their infectious love for each other and the music they play. They released their debut, self-titled EP in June 2019, and just four months after their debut single, have already amassed nearly 7000 total streams on Spotify.
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.
