Each month we’ll feature a video from one of GAC’s musical members. If you’re a musician and have a video you’d like us to feature, please send a YouTube link our way along with a short bio to [email protected]
This month, we share one from Liv Cazzola and GAC Board Member Braden Phelan (together known as Tragedy Ann), who have just returned home to Guelph from a few weeks away touring in Europe.
Catch them live at the Guelph Museum’s final Fourth Friday event of the decade on December 27th.
Tragedy Ann is a forward-looking folk duo from Guelph, Ontario. With intimacy and care, Liv Cazzola & Braden Phelan favour a flashlight over a spotlight in songs for community, nature, and hardworking hospital staff. Braiding organic vocal 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).
