Darling four women

To label Oh My Darling as 'sweet country music' is an understatement.

To label Oh My Darling as ‘sweet country music’ is an understatement.

These four young women are some of the hottest players on the Canadian roots scene. They can shred, they can holler, they can make you dance, they can make you weep.

When these gals are on stage your heart is in their hands. They infuse their unique brand of country music with Appalachian Old Time, a Southern twang, and some funk-inspired bass lines that’ll get your hips swinging while your toes are tapping.

The Western Canadian Music Awards have honoured their debut self-titled EP, nominating Oh My Darling for Best Roots Album in 2009. This independent, self-produced recording features fast fingered banjo, saucy fiddle, grooving double bass and feisty vocals  creating a high energy debut performance.

Oh My Darling recorded and released their first full-length album in early 2010 with renowned producer Lloyd Peterson (Wailin’ Jennys, James Keelaghan).

Topping of National campus roots charts and spinning regularly on CBC’s airwaves, the gals stirred up some dust on their cross-Canada tour, spring 2010 and their Summer of Fun Tour during the 2010 festival season are revved up to begin recording their followup album to In the Lonesome Hours this winter.

“Winnipeg’s newest, best, most female ‘country’ band, if you can call something this amazing country.” — The Manitoban.

Kitchen opens at 5 p.m. for people who want to come early to have a bite to eat. The show starts just after 8 p.m. and is being offered as a Pay What You Can (PWYC) event.

Get more information by calling 250-702-MILO (6456).
