Lydia Hol is a Vancouver based musician, whose music combines lush folk and early 60's soul. In 2016, Hol released her first full length album 'Heading North' recorded with John Raham at Afterlife Studios, alongside some of Vancouver finest musicians including Jesse Zubot, Chris Gestrin, Paul Rigby, Dawn Pemberton and more. With this record, Hol extended her audience reach playing festivals in Sweden and Denmark, and touring Germany. She was invited as a songwriter to The House of Songs in Austin TX, and at BD Pop in Sweden. Hol was invited to showcase at North Eastern Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) in New York, Folk Music Ontario in Toronto, and Folk Alliance in Kansas City. Closer to home she played the Rogue Folk Club, Bluebird North, Mission Folk Fest, Islands Folk Fest, and Shorefest.
In November 2016 Hol began work on her second full length record, as an Artist in Residence at the Banff Centre for the Arts. At the beginning of 2017 Hol travelled to Nashville, TN to co-write songs for her upcoming record, which is heavily influenced by early 60’s soul and is set to be released in the Spring of 2018.
The Wayward Hearts
Hosting the Holy Roller Revue for the second year, The Wayward Hearts are a dynamic six piece featuring fiddle, accordion and banjo. They play eclectic original country and folk songs about troubled lovers, Old Testament outcasts and the perils of modern existence. They released their first full length record 'High Impedance' in May of 2017.
Marin was raised in a house full of music and siblings in the small northern town of Horsefly, British Columbia. Much like the von Trapps, Marin and her sisters sang three-part harmony with their father and spent a large portion of their childhood touring festivals as the Patenaude Family. She spent many years bending her will under a whip-cracking opera trainer, resulting in many tears and three consecutive years with the highest-ranking Royal Conservatory exam scores in British Columbia. A voice like an angel with a soul too gritty for the classical world, she picked up a guitar and turned to writing as a source of counsel during the grey Vancouver winters, dabbling with songs about politics and environmental issues but with age has matured an unparalleled truth and honesty in writing about love. Sometimes we want to say something and don’t know how. Marin can sing it.
So what about The Honky Tonk Dilettantes? Hailing from Vancouver B.C., we are an eclectic acoustic roots group that loves to sing and play good old fashioned country music, bluegrass, Western/Texas swing, and whatever else strikes our fancy. Starting as a trio, they’re very pleased to say they now usually have metal slide and percussion players in their shows.
