Join us for the CLOSING NIGHT of our 2017 Country Music Series; enjoy some folk and pop with Madison Violet:
«After incredible performances from the Montreax Jazz Fest to Massey Hall, Madison Violet have been deemed one of the best female duos to come out of Canada»
Brenley MacEachern and Lisa MacIsaac are the two multi‐instrumentalists who make up Madison Violet. Born in Montreal and raised in Kincardine, Ontario, Brenley used to spend her summers in Lisa’s hometown of Creignish, Nova Scotia, but they never met on the east coast. It was a chance meeting at a restaurant in Toronto, called the Greenroom, that set them on their musical journey, later finding out that not only did Lisa know Brenley’s extended family, but that their father’s sat next to one another in high school in Cape Breton. It was kismet. Since their fateful meeting in 1999, the pair has been nominated for numerous ECMA awards and a Juno award, won a Canadian Folk Award for Vocal Group of the Year, the Maxell John Lennon Songwriting grand prize, and many more. They have released 7 studio albums, as well as a live CD and DVD recorded in Köln, during one of their many European tours.
