For the last day of Megaphono I headed over to Raw Sugar for some singer-songwriter action by Catriona Sturton, Jill Zmud and Kristina St-Pierre. I'm familiar with all three names, but hadn't had a chance to check any of them out live.
Kristina St-Pierre bills her sound as torch-folk; here she is with percussionist Simon Lachance.
Marion Kiss handles cello duties.
Kristine rocks the baby bump!
Simon takes a break while Kristine adds some harmonica.
On to Jill Zmud, who has a bluesier take on things, complete with backing singers for extra harmony. She recently released an album inspired by the work of her uncle Eddy Clynton, once a guitarist for Saskatoon's Witness, Inc. She found a reel-to-reel of his demos and put a couple of covers on her latest album, A Small Matter of Life and Death.
Also on hand, Jake Bryce of Fiftymen, Recoilers, etc.
Catriona comes up for some harmonica.
Jake works the slide, waits for his cue.
Catriona Sturton was my favourite act of the afternoon; her ragged style makes me think of Julie Doiron and Carla Bozulich, two performers I'm very fond of.
Beastly harmonica action!
I think this was during a song about poutine.
A nice way to spend an afternoon, and the daylight certainly helps with the photos at Raw Sugar.
