Scarlett Jane, the Ontario-based duo of Andrea Ramolo and Cindy Doire, are on the road again. The pair are building a strong following thanks to their smart, edgy folk noir—guitar-driven pop songs, delivered with close harmonies and real heart. And, well into a cross-Canada tour, they’ll play a special Canada Day performance at Marina Park from 6:30-8:00 pm.
The Thunder Bay show is right in the middle of a cross-Canada tour of more than 50 concerts, which has included performances across Quebec and the Maritimes (four of them with the Skydiggers were sold out). From here, Scarlett Jane will head west to Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.
A little over two years ago Scarlett Jane appeared on the scene as one of the most anticipated new collaborations in Canadian music: the marriage of the distinctive songs and haunting voices of Andrea Ramolo and Cindy Doire. Since they began with an impromptu performance at a folk music conference, they have released their debut CD, Stranger, played more than 150 shows, toured in five European countries, and were nominated as Best Emerging Artist at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, and best folk/roots group at the Toronto Independent Music Awards. Stranger captures their strength and vulnerability and delivers a progressive roots sound which embodies the raw and candid demeanor of Lucinda Williams, the sensuality of Stevie Nicks and Nick Cave, and the tender playfulness of Dolly Parton.
