    Tragedy Ann:
    The music of Guelph folk duo Tragedy Ann inspires chills, provokes smiles, and reminds you to breathe. With the occasional nod to alt. blues and handshake with contemporary folk-rock, Liv Cazzola and Braden Phelan intertwine the storytelling power of Tom Waits with the musical nuance of Mandolin Orange, crafting something simultaneously familiar and fresh.

    Rooted in passionate vocal harmony, Tragedy Ann’s songs tackle topics from love-drunkenness to hospital visits with equal intimacy. Cazzola’s multi-instrumental menagerie and Phelan’s dynamic guitar flavours provide a lush backdrop to these powerful narratives, reminding you that you do indeed love the accordion—you just never heard it played this sweetly.

    Tragedy Ann captured these sounds on their debut EP, Stumbling, released in 2016. The pair has since charmed audiences across Canada, “…delivering finely crafted and carefully arranged songs with the honesty and enthusiasm of people who can’t help but create and perform.” (Jon Farmer, Georgian Bay Roots). They are releasing their first full-length album Matches, produced by Toronto audio-genie James Paul, in September 2018.

    Max Marshall:
    “Born in Windsor, Ontario, and currently based in Essex County, Max Marshall has performed publicly since childhood and in live music venues since the age of 14. With time spent at the University of Windsor for Classical and Jazz upright bass as well as Memorial University in St. John’s, Newfoundland for Folklore studies, Marshall has 10+ years of experience as a music educator, and has a passion for stories from the vast palate of the Canadian folk identity. Marshall has chosen finger style acoustic guitar as his medium with a preference for folk/country blues/ragtime as his true musical purpose. In a performance that extends from soft introspection to frenzied, bluesy, interpretations, Max Marshall gives audiences a heartfelt, personal performance, featuring a guitar style that is largely underexposed. ”
