Stay warm this winter with The O’Pears. The Toronto-based contemporary folk trio is currently on tour in support of their latest album ‘Stay Warm’. They will be playing a dinner/show at the Utopia Hall Jan. 19.
Lydia Persaud, Jill Harris, and Meg Contini are three songwriters who make up The O’Pears. They are known for their tight a cappella harmonies, rootsy instrumentation, and stories that stir the spirit.
Their sophomore album Stay Warm illuminates the comfort, darkness, and complexity of the winter holiday season. Rather than a commercial Christmas album, Stay Warm, covers winter classics and original songs with subject matter ranging from family reunions to new love and seasonal solitude.
A cappella covers of winter classics are sprinkled between original songs that examine the many ways that the holidays can bring rest, joy, and cheer while also inspiring feelings of loss, grief, and nostalgia.
Each member of The O’Pears is a distinctly talented musician with a stand-alone voice, style, and stage presence.
Tickets are $30 in advance, $35 at the door. Prices include dinner buffet at 7 p.m. For more details on the concert and to reserve tickets, visit www.utopiahall.ca or call 877-499-HALL(4255).
