Silent Winters: Album Release
February 26, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Ottawa based folk-duo Silent Winters debut their new album “The Duke Hotel”. History, heritage and heartbreak is the inspiration for this album – delving into the history of Ottawa’s Lebreton Flats neighborhood and family ancestry. With the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts, Silent Winters are thrilled to perform their latest creation for you.
Silent Winters is an Ottawa folk duo with a warm, intimate repertoire born of cold months and fireside contemplation. 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.
