Come out for a night with Dala on Dec. 15

BarrieFolk is thrilled to welcome back Amanda Walther and Sheila Carabine of Dala for a special evening of music on Friday, Dec. 15 at Moving Art in Barrie.

Juno nominees and winners of the 2010 Canadian Folk Music Award for Vocal Group of the Year, Amanda and Sheila write and sing in harmony best described as angelic. These two best friends met in their high school music class in 2002; they have since released five albums and toured extensively across North America. Darlings of the Canadian music scene, Dala are now poised to bring their fresh brand of acoustic pop music to the world.

The sheer joy with which they perform is infectious, turning first-time listeners into instant fans. Dala are equally entertaining between songs, telling funny and down to earth stories that make every show unique. Dala have opened for artists such as Tom Cochrane, Stuart McLean of the CBC’s Vinyl Café, Richie Havens and Arlo Guthrie. No strangers to the festival scene, they have also performed at The New Orleans Jazz Festival, The Edmonton Folk Festival, California’s Strawberry Festival and Mariposa. In 2009, they were the only Canadian act invited to play at the 50th Anniversary of the Newport Folk Festival. 

Dala’s latest album Best Day was released in 2012. It was nominated for three Canadian Folk Music Awards: English Songwriter of the Year, Vocal Group of the Year and Producer of the Year.

The show takes place at Moving Art (125 Anne St. S., Barrie) and starts at 8 p.m. (doors open at 7:30 p.m.). Seating is general admission.


Tickets are $31.80 (plus service charge). They are non-refundable, but are transferable.
