Sun, 3pm - 11:59pm
Get into the music!
It was Gallery House Concerts good fortune last year to be interviewed live on opening day of CKUA's Calgary studio in the King Eddy. There we, not only, got to rub shoulders with some of our favourite hosts and musicians, we were introduced to the soaring harmonies of The O'Pears.
This Toronto-based contemporary folk trio weaves stories that stir the spirit and capture the timeless character of folk music. Their sibling-like blend, evokes the profound intimacy of Nick Drake youtu.be/Y2jxjv0HkwM, the seamless blend of The Staves youtu.be/hYV0Wp0MdZ4 and the dynamic harmony of Crosby, Stills, and Nash youtu.be/fM8hpsrmUe0. Live performances turn the loudest bar into the warmest house concert, with their endearing, unabashed personalities balancing the intimate sincerity of the songs.
The O'Pears have performed at Summerfolk, Great Heart Festival, Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival, garnered radio play across Canada, including CBC, and have been featured live with Royal Wood, Good Lovelies, Michelle Willis, and Coco Love Alcorn.
Each band member (Lydia Persaud, Jill Harris and Meg Contini) is a distinctly talented musician with a stand-alone voice, style, and stage presence. When they come together, it is a breathtaking and striking mix of tight a cappella and rootsy instrumentation.
