Annie Lou - Live in Ottawa
"There is magic here: superior picking, excellent rhythm work, impressive and whimsical lyrics. Genest’s lead vocal style echoes the McGarrigles and Sylvia Tyson, but she is irrefutably herself.” - Donald Teplyske, Country Standard Time

About the event
With humour, grace, and warmth, Annie Lou takes the stage with banjo and guitar, inviting you into a world of original music rooted in melodic traditions.
Annie Lou has a palette of old folk, oldtime country and bluegrass music Annie Lou paints a vibrant landscape, delivered with a vocal warmth evocative of the sweet tones of Kate and Anna McGarrigle blended with the raw emotion of Hazel Dickens. We laugh, cry, dance, reflect and connect with ballads, tunes, and songs inspired by our lives and times and ups and downs.
Although Annie Lou draws deep from the well of tradition, this is new music, relevant to a modern audience, that finds its inspiration in a time when there was little separation between performer and audience - where everyone played something, or danced to it - and where music was deeply connected to the everyday lives of the people who played it.
Join us at the Manotick United Church for a great evening of grass roots music!
