The “Acoustic Stage” presents The O’Pears with special guests, Moonfruits
November 4, 2017, 7 pm
The O’Pears are a Toronto-based contemporary folk trio made up of Lydia Persaud, Jill Harris and Meg Contini, three songwriters who weave stories that stir the spirit and capture the timeless character of folk music and carried by their soaring, sister-like harmonies. Live performances turn the loudest bar into the warmest house concert, with their endearing, unabashed personalities balancing the intimate sincerity of the songs. They have been touring the large festivals across Canada, can be heard on the CBC and have been featured live with Royal Wood, Good Lovelies, Michelle Willis, and Coco Love Alcorn. Each band member a distinctly talented musician with a stand-alone voice, style, and stage presence, when these three come together it is breathtaking. A striking mix of tight a cappella and rootsy instrumentation, The O’Pears explore lessons learned about love and loss through the eyes and hearts of young Canadian storytellers. The O’Pears continue to bring a strong, honest voice to the modern female perspective. Visit their website here.
Opening this show will be the Ottawa-based duo, Moonfruits, who graced our stage last year in an Intimate Acoustics lineup. Kaitlin and Alex left our crowd breathless, so we knew we had to bring them back and they will be a stunning complement to The O’Pears. Accompanied by a banjo and parlour guitar, their beautiful harmonies captivate listeners and celebrate common ground. Partners on and off stage, they summon music from a place where ideas and imagination intertwine. Visit their website here.
