Quartet to be joined by fiddler for Music On Sunday in Qualicum Beach

Music On Sunday at The Old Schoolhouse Arts Centre continues this weekend with music from a toe-tapping quartet.

Genevieve and the Wild Sundays will be performing at TOSH (122 Fern Rd., Qualicum Beach) on Sept. 25 from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. as part of the Music On Sunday series. Tickets are $18 and reservations are recommended. For more information, call 250-752-6133 or visit www.theoldschoolhouse.org.

Genevieve and the Wild Sundays is an all-female quartet from Vancouver Island. The music of the Wild Sundays is rooted in folk and old-time country while incorporating bluegrass rhythms, Americana pop and more.

While all four women sing in the quartet, Genevieve Charbonneau — who is the primary songwriter — plays guitar, Kelly Sherwin plays upright bass, Laura Carleton is on percussion and Chandra Crowe plays the fiddle.

Since moving to the Cowichan Valley, Charbonneau said she decided that she wanted to do more than sing her songs around a campfire.  Charbonneau said she wanted to put together a musical  group to bring out her songs’ natural grooves and harmonies.

Sherwin, who is a member of the Victoria-based a cappella group Balkan Babes with Charbonneau, was one of the first recruits with Carleton following. Charbonneau and Crowe started playing guitar together as teens, but Crowe didn’t join the quartet until the fall of 2013.

In May, Genevieve and the Wild Sundays released their first full-length album Fine Line.

The songs range from love ballads to “rollicking political hootenannies.”

The Wild Sundays will be accompanied by five-time Grand North American Fiddle Champion Ivonne Hernandez.

Hernandez, who is based in Victoria, was the youngest member of the Greater Victoria Youth Orchestra.

She has performed with or opened for Alan Jackson, Gloria Estefan, Jann Arden, Natalie MacMaster and Earth Wind and Fire.
