The REENIE acoustic duo are a Toronto based folk-pop duo touring Western Canada this summer. They look forward to returning to their hometown to perform!

Guitarist, singer & veteran tunesmith Reenie Perkovic draws on her decade of bandleading with powerhouse, bluesy vocals. Her original project is currently recording their next album at Canterbury studios with legendary engineer Jeremy Darby (Keith Richards, Sara Bareilles, the Barenaked Ladies.) Violist Lea Kirstein fuses her classical, jazz and Celtic worlds into hard-hitting, percussive string arrangements. She brings her experiences recording with Juno-nominated fiddle giant Oliver Schroer, Juno-nominated songstress Teresa Doyle, as well as touring Canada and the U.S. with the Boston-based Folk Arts Quartet. In their 5-song EP The Good Fight, the intimate stories and resonance of acoustic folk is combined with thick, texture-driven arrangements, and the rhythmic drive of blues and soul.
