**Feature Performer: Genevieve & the Wild Sundays** http://www.wildsundays.ca

Soaring harmonies, catchy songs, original folk-roots music: this is Genevieve and the Wild Sundays. This all-female quartet features the award-winning songs of Vancouver-Island-based homesteading mama Genevieve Charbonneau.

The music of the Wild Sundays is rooted in folk and old-time country, incorporating bluegrass rhythms, Americana, pop, and a whole lot more. Genevieve and Kelly Sherwin (upright bass/vocals) are long-time members of award-winning vocal ensemble Balkan Babes, singing traditional folk music of the Balkan region. Kelly also contributes a bluegrass sensibility (Flash in the Pan and Ain’t Dead Yet), while Laura Carleton (percussion/vocals) brings a background of choral music (Vancouver Island Chamber Choir) and West African percussion (Moondance Dynamic Arts). Chandra Crowe (mandolin/vocals) adds training in Greek, Turkish, Balkan and Middle Eastern music (Yiddish Columbia State Orchestra) into the mix. This eclectic training brings a fusion flavour to a predominantly old-time sound, with a focus on three- and four-part harmonies.

Host: Shauna Janz - http://www.shaunajanzmusic.com

Singer-songwriter Shauna Janz's unconventional approach and folk-soprano voice has awarded her quick recognition. Recently releasing a self-produced EP, her song Redwood has been nominated “Song of the Year” at the 2015 Vancouver Island Music Awards. Her indie-folk sounds are described as "lyrical, soulful, warm" and "stunning and memorable; a unique voice that combines folk with soul". With a fierce heart for creative expression, and an endearing stage-presence, audiences can expect fascinating guitar tunings, haunting melodies punctuated by driving rhythms, and set amongst both ethereal soprano sounds and strong spirited vocals.
