with special guest Ryan Boldt
of Deep Dark Woods
Saturday, March 21, 8pm (doors 7pm)
CBC Studio 700 700 Hamilton Street
Newfoundland singer-songwriter Amelia Curran returns to Vancouver in support of her latest release They Promised You Mercy. Known both for her raw and well-honed lyrics, and the "strong, yet wearied and frail resonance of her vocals," Curran has turned heads and touched hearts since she first hit the stage. She received her first JUNO Award (for Hunter, Hunter) in 2010. Her 7th and latest recording is also nominated for Roots & Traditional Album of The Year (solo) at the March 15 JUNOs. The recording shows her growth into a more fuller sound, with her lyrical integrity and unrivaled eloquence still intact. For lovers of consummate song-craft, come sit a while with Canada’s master contemporary songstress.
Deep Dark Woods lead singer Ryan Boldt joins Curran on tour in the wake of his first solo release in late 2014.

We met and loved them at VFMF 2014, and are thrilled they're back - and with a new CD due for launch in March, to boot! Their concerts are wild, joyful experiences barely contained by four walls.
