“Beautiful, raw and exciting” Jeff Lang
Australian duo Hat Fitz & Cara make their Toronto debut at the Lula Lounge.
Hat Fitz & Cara’s musical style is a unique combination of folk, roots and gospel blues with old time flavourings reminiscent of a time once forgotten.
Hat Fitz is a “veteran” wild man of the blues scene in Australia. He has a record 18 straight appearances at Byron’s East Coast Blues and Roots Festival, a record that is not likely to ever be broken, and one which bears testimony to his amazing live performances and popularity with festival goers.
Cara draws on her soul background (she’s toured Europe and the United States with singers such as Jamiroquai and the hugely popular Corinne Bailey-Rae), and although blessed with a sensational voice she was not content to be labelled as ‘just a singer’. She has taken to drumming duties as well as washboards, flute and tin whistle, sometimes all at once.
Together this pair will take you on a musical journey with ample, boisterous highs, and longing, bluesy lows. From the Australian outback to the Canadian shield, Hat Fitz & Cara put on a show that is guaranteed to energize and invigorate.
About Dana Sipos:
Inhabiting the far north before going nomad and now perched in Toronto, Ontario, Dana Sipos' hypnotic, nuanced songs shine a tenderly skewed light into the shadows. Her music described as «delicate, slightly strange and completely mesmerizing (Gold Flake Paint UK),» Dana toured extensively in support of her previous release, Roll Up the Night Sky, receiving a Canadian Folk Music award nomination in the Pushing the Boundaries category. A new album, Trick of the Light, produced by Sandro Perri and featuring a breadth of Canadian talent will be released on Toronto-based Roaring Girl Records in May 2018.
