CARMEN TOWNSEND:

You can call Carmen Townsend’s music many things, but reserved isn’t one of them. As polite as she may be in person, within Townsend lives a voice much louder than she lets on in conversation. It’s one that manifests itself onstage through her raucous live sets, full of an intensity that has been building throughout Townsend’s career as a musician. 

 

FOON YAP & THE ROAR:

Foon Yap is best known to Calgary audiences for her work with baroque folk ensemble Woodpigeon. Her tenure began like so many other local indie rock stories: “I was drunk one night at Broken City, and I had my violin on me,” she recalls. “The club was packed and I needed to sit down. I crawled across this table and introduced myself to all these guys, and they were like, “‘Hey our friend needs a violinist for his CD release.’”
