Kick off your weekend with a performance by Tragedy Ann! On the Fourth Friday of the month, Guelph Museums offers free admission to the Guelph Civic Museum after 5 p.m. Performance by Tragedy Ann at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Tragedy Ann is a forward-looking folk duo from Guelph, Ontario.
Liv Cazzola and Braden Phelan find warmth in questions and daring in answers, making space for the tear that lies behind laughter. With intimacy and care, the duo favours a flashlight over a spotlight in songs for community, nature, and hardworking hospital staff. Braiding organic harmonies with accordion, singing saw, guitars, and ukulele, Tragedy Ann’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).
