BeaverTails Ottawa Ice Dragon Boat Races Presents: Silent Winters
February 11 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The BeaverTails Ottawa Ice Dragon Boat Festival is pleased to present an evening with Silent Winters who will be performing across the festival’s digital platforms.
To the delight of all involved, Ottawa folk duo Silent Winters – Olenka Bastian and Jonathan Chandler, are making a return engagement at this year’s festival. They bring with them a warm, intimate repertoire born of cold months and fireside contemplation with crystal-clear harmonies and tender, poetic storytelling.
Channeling a musical chemistry perfected while harmonizing as lead singers in rock outfit Amos the Transparent, Olenka and Jonathan craft pared-down, acoustic compositions supporting pure vocals and heart-melting lyrics. Silent Winters claims its creative heritage in such acts as Simon & Garfunkel, The Milk Carton Kids and The Civil Wars, while treading fresh musical tracks with crystal-clear harmonies and tender, poetic storytelling. They were 2017 Canadian Folk Music Award nominees for Ensemble of the Year and Emerging Artist of the Year.
