September 14, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm12$
Ottawa Showbox & Beau’s All Natural Brewing Co. present the Showbox Concert Series ft. Julie Doiron & the Wooden Stars From her humble beginnings to her prolific solo career (not to mention a diverse array of collaborations), Julie Doiron’s music is woven into the fabric of Canadian culture. For more than 25 years the singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has chronicled love, loss and motherhood across a wide range of projects and styles, always with an evocative, plainspoken lyrical style that’s intimate and, at times, heartbreaking. Of all of Julie Doiron’s projects over the years, her collaborative 1999 album with the Wooden Stars (from Ottawa), simply called Julie Doiron and the Wooden Stars, is one of the most acclaimed, having won a Juno Award for Best Alternative Album in 2000. – Exclaim! + Gianna Lauren “Not so much a delicacy as a well-earned moment of delicate repose. Not so much a tearjerker as a fearless,tearful stare straight at the small challenges of displacement, adaptation and love. Gianna’s music, full of melody and candor, can sneak up on you. Her most recent album, Some Move Closer, Some Move On gracefully borrows ambiance from many eras while remaining a clear statement from a young woman whose radical nature is more luscious than lurid.” – Southern Souls + POP-UP SHOP with Lemon Ephemera Vintage artistry, reimagined.
