Hey Folks!
For this special night of the Album Release Tour in Ottawa ON I am super happy to have Fluffy Little Cowboys from Prince Edward Island along for the show. It will be an honour to play the iconic Irene’s stage with Shelley Montreuil(vocals, guitar, clarinet, sax), as well as her band and life partner Maureen Adams(bass, harmonies & percussion) and multi-instrumentalist Keelin Wedge(fiddle, bass,guitar,harmonies).

This group brings you something you’ll not hear elsewhere, trust me, you have to see and hear them to know. We like to make a show or two or three happen when we pass each other’s homes and we will have just spent the better part of a week together by then so perhaps there will be some possi...ble collaboration?

It will be wonderful to return to my musical home on Bank St. with these friends, we look forward to seeing any and all of you!

THE ARTISTS:

Fluffy Little Cowboys
The women in Fluffy Little Cowboys are no angels; what they are is a fiery, focused trio with an eclectic sound that’s incredibly compelling but almost impossible to categorize.

Some call it alternative East Coast, but you’ll also hear tinges of country, roots, trad, and blues… then there’s the rhythmic spoken word and punk rock piss-and-vinegar. Trying to identify every influence is like trying to pick out every poke of a full-sleeve tattoo.

The Fluffy’s recent album, No Angel, was produced by PEI wunderkind Nathan Wiley and features Doobie Brothers drummer Ed Toth, the lyrical content is weighty, tackling combustible subjects head-on, hitting like a musical Molotov cocktail; however, at their core is a message of empowerment & inclusion.

Fluffy Little Cowboys are a lot of things, but put simply, they are an edgy group of passionate performers who love to make great music.

The lovely “Lioness of Lanark,” Ali McCormick, is equipped with an endless supply of energy and charm. Ali delivers carefully crafted lyrics with an unforgettable voice...then sweetens you up with the perfect melody. Ali’s music is fun-loving and full of quality storytelling. By the end of the show, you’ll know her quite well, and chances are, you’ll be a big fan.

BIO
Though the body has ventured across the land, the soul has never strayed far from her childhood homestead. Ali McCormick offers up her most personal offering to date with That Place You Know, her third album.

A true wilderness wordsmith, Ali populates her music with colourful characters you enjoy spending time with. Rooted in folk, songs like “Tackle Box, Saw, Chain and a Knife” and “The Woodstove” show the road at the end of a long tour now leads to her own cozy clearing on an island sheep farm.

That Place You Know, like 2014’s self-titled recording and 2016’s Clean Water, is full of tasty, road-tested songs. Brimming with youthful hijinks and wild days at the midway, there are also cherished moments spent at home in the warm caress of love. One would expect no less from The Lioness of Lanark County.
