Kim Beggs & Larissa Tandy
November 2, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Join us in The WISE Lounge for an intimate night of music and song with Kim Beggs (YK) and Larissa Tandy (Aus).
Sincere, vulnerable, clear eyed and tough, Yukon’s Kim Beggs, with 6 WCMA nominations and 3 CFMA nominations to date, will release her fifth solo album, Said Little Sparrow, this fall 2017. Accompanied by Marcel Desilets, Kim delivers a heartfelt darkness in a beautiful back woods, beat driven performance. Kim has toured with Buffy Saint Marie, Chris Jagger and more.
“it’s hugely refreshing to hear not only interesting and engaging lyrics, but also beautifully crafted songs”.
SING OUT MAGAZINE
“Kim Beggs’ voice lures you in with its emotive melancholy before you’ve had time to absorb the fact that she’s a formidable songwriter.”
– NOW Magazine
Hailing from rural Australia, Larissa came up from the underground of Melbourne’s world class music scene, mining her difficult life for potent stories and spinning them into songs that made their way onto radio in America, the UK, and Canada where the CBC ordained them as “songs you need to hear”.
Filtering the urgent poetry of Patti Smith and the untamed cool of Liz Phair, while fearlessly laying bare her road worn heart, Tandy is carving her own path in the world of modern americana using truth as a weapon. Her momentum continues to gather, and in 2017 she makes the move to Music City Nashville as the recipient of The Australia Council’s prestigious Nashville Songwriter Residency.
