Forward-looking folk duo Tragedy Ann (Guelph, ON) brings their latest release “Matches” this month to Canada’s “Middle Coast” for the first time. With an electric chemistry and quick-witted sense of humor, their live performances in Northern Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan will embrace the intimacy of living rooms and gardens, the grandeur of festival stages, and the natural pairing of culinary art with music.
About Tragedy Ann
Forward-looking folk duo Tragedy Ann finds warmth in questions and daring in answers, making space for the tear that lies behind laughter. With intimacy and care, the duo favors a flashlight over a spotlight in songs for community, nature, and hardworking hospital staff. Braiding organic harmonies with accordion, singing saw, guitars, and ukulele, Liv Cazzola and Braden Phelan’s arrangements are as delicate as they are driving.
Their sounds and stories were most recently captured on September 2018’s release “Matches,” garnering them two ‘Songs from the Heart’ songwriting awards (Folk Music Ontario), national folk/roots radio charting, and syndication on CBC Radio and Stingray Music. Regularly touring across Canada (and, shortly, in Europe and the USA), Tragedy Ann concerts emanate “the honesty and enthusiasm of people who can’t help but create and perform.” (Jon Farmer, Georgian Bay Roots).
Whether it be a favorite pair of reading glasses or the chemistry created when songwriters share a vision, depth is best observed through two lenses.
