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!
The charity for H&H #2 is Guelph-Wellington Women in Crisis, who work tirelessly to end violence against women and youth in our area.
‘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 Citizen Jane!
Where: Brothers Brewing Co. (Downtown Guelph)
Accessibility: Space is wheelchair accessible and has an accessible washroom.
Event is All-Ages. (we love families!)
Cover: Nope, but donate if you’re able, and artists will have CDs available!
About Women in Crisis:
Guelph-Wellington Women in Crisis is a feminist community-based organization providing services to women and their children on woman abuse and sexual violence.
Dynamic chamber folk-pop duo, Citizen Jane, pushes boundaries for string instruments in popular music.
Citizen Jane is a Canadian folk-pop duo that crafts lush, layered songs that explore hopeful themes about our society’s potential to evolve in the current political climate (though the occasional love song is inevitable).
Percussive and lyrical bowed strings marry with rhythmically driven guitar and powerful, interwoven vocal harmonies to create a soundscape that is two parts daydream; one part grunge.
The duo’s upcoming album, High Tide (being released in 3 parts), infuses their organic folk sound with subtle electronic flavours, colouring traditional influences with a more contemporary pop aesthetic.
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.
