Bon Voyage Songs — Chanson français & chamber pop
Canadian-Californian songstress Madeline Tasquin was born to an opera singer mother and goldminer father, which goes a long way to explain her music and the big energy she brings to the stage. Tonight she’ll be joined by Chris Lauf (drums, ukulele), Oscar Westesson (upright bass) and Dan Cantrell (saw, accordion, piano).
“There’s a big Carribbean voice inside that tiny white Canadian.” Dennis Cook, Jambase.com
Laura Weinbach is lead singer, songwriter and guitar shredder for San Francisco’s Foxtails Brigade, and living proof that big things come in small packages.
“The minute she begins to play everyone within earshot immediately revises their previous opinions of front-girl Laura Weinbach from tiny cutie, to big roaring genius,” SF Weekly.
**To celebrate Madeline’s imminent departure on a 3-month European tour, both artists will weave some of their favourite French language selections into the evening.**
