Canuck songbird at Solstice

Ingrid Gatin will be in Victoria on March 8 playing a show at The Solstice Cafe

Winnipeg-based Ingrid Gatin visits Victoria this week.

Winnipeg-based musician Ingrid Gatin started to weave herself into Canada’s artistic landscape in 2009, with her first full-length album Broken Tambourine.

After gaining attention from CBC radio, Broken Tambourine entered the top 20 on Earshot Charts soon after its release.

Gatin’s new full-length album 1000 Lives, released last month, was created with grammy-nominated engineer/producer Howard Bilerman between a loft and a church in Winnipeg and Bilerman’s studio in Montréal.

1000 Lives is an introspective tale of love and freedom compiled over Gatin’s last three years of travel. Reawakening an old-world sound with piano and accordion, while maintaining a modern glow, Gatin is a regular at folk festivals across the country. She is currently touring Canada to promote her new release.

Gatin will be in Victoria on March 8 playing a show at The Solstice Cafe with Beat Roots (members of The Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra).
