Folk music band Madison Violet, consisting of Canadian singer-songwriter duo Brenly MacEachern and Lisa MacIsaac, will be taking the stage in Prince Rupert tomorrow night.
Crystal Lorette, general manager of the Lester Centre, encourages music-lovers to take in the duo she describes as “young, beautiful and talented”.
“By fusing melodies over harmonies, you’re immediately captivated. Madison Violet will snap you out of the cold April showers and rekindle your passion for the warmth of live music,” Lorette said.
Madison Violet’s newest album The Good in Goodbye follows the success the pair found from their breakthrough album, No Fool for Trying, which was nominated for a Juno Award in 2010 in the Roots and Traditional Album of the Year category.
The duo has been nominated for a number of East Coast and Canadian Folk Music Awards. They have also toured with Stuart McLean’s Vinyl Cafe and shared the stage with artists such as Chantal Kreviazuk, Ron Sexsmith and The Indigo Girls.
Madison Violet became the only Canadians to win The John Lennon Songwriting Contest in 2009 in the Maxell Song of the Year Award category for The Ransom, which also won the Folk/Singer-Songwriter Song of the Year in the 2011 Independent Music Awards.
Madison Violet’s concert will be taking place at the Lester Centre of the Arts in Prince Rupert on April 25 as part of a northern tour the group is doing this month. The duo planned to do the tour in November, but because of bad road conditions had to postpone it.
Tickets for the performance in Prince Rupert can be purchased at Cook’s Jewellers or the Lester Centre. The concert will begin at eight p.m.
