The Once

Showtime: Thursday, November 10, 2016

Location: RBC Theatre

Over the past five years, The Once (Geraldine Hollett, Andrew Dale and Phil Churchill) has been quietly making a name for themselves in their native Canada. The Newfoundland-based band has collected a trio of Canadian Folk Music Awards, been named Newfoundland & Labrador Art Council’s Artist of the Year and earned a JUNO nomination for best Roots/Traditional album. Over the past year, however, the rest of the world has discovered the joyous, harmony-rich acoustic music that have made them such favourites in their homeland.

Their latest album Departures was their first album on Nettwerk Records. Long-time fans of The Once will notice an increase of the band’s song writing credits on Departures. While the trio has ventured into new artistic territory, The Once remains rooted in its essential musical elements – Hollett’s incandescent voice, the trio’s gorgeous harmonies and the spirited acoustic instrumentation supplied by Dale and Churchill. Departures represents The Once’s most honest and personal effort to date.
