Karen Morand and Gina Horswood
The Bank Theatre is proud to present An Intimate Evening with Karen Morand & Gina Horswood

The Bank Theatre is proud to present an intimate evening with Karen Morand & Gina Horswood for the launch of their Saints and Sinners CD Release Tour on Saturday, April 22, 2017, at 7:30 pm at The Bank Theatre, 10 Erie St. S. in uptown Leamington. Karens band BOSCO will also join Karen and Gina. Programming committee head Sharon Light says, The Bank Theatre is thrilled that these award-winning singer-songwriters will launch their tour on our stage in our intimate theatre!

Award winning singer-songwriters Karen Morand and Gina Horswood met at a recent Folk Music Ontario conference in Toronto and soon found that their styles complimented each other. Although Karen hails from Windsor, and Gina is Aussie Canadian living part time in Canada, and part-time in Australia, the two decided joining forces to tour in support of their new CDs made great sense and sounded fun! As they say, north meets south and links all of the miles in between.

Karens new release is entitled Junkyard Heart, the title track of which is deeply personal and Karen says is much like a prayer. Active in community service in the Windsor-Essex region, Karen has seen the rough and tumble side of life through the eyes of those less fortunate. Karen believes there is something valuable and redeemable in every person, and her new album speaks to that throughout. She is the recent winner of the 2016 Kingsville Folk Music Festival - Canada South Songwriting Contest for the song Big Muddy, also on this new release.  

Armed with original songs and feisty, powerhouse vocals, Karen Morand delivers a soul-stirring show. Its lively, alt-folk enhanced with well-worn blues and gritty gospel on the side and reflects the strength and weaknesses she feels in her own journey of faith and life.  Folk Roots Radio with Jan Hall says Karen Morands development as a songwriter continues on her third album Junkyard Heart. Featuring songs with compelling lyrics that have more of a confessional revival meeting style than her previous efforts, it still retains the warm acoustic feel that weve come to associate with her band, Bosco.

Quietly compelling, Aussie-Canadian singer-songwriter Gina Horswood is a musical force to be reckoned with, has traveled far and wide to share her music, is a modern troubadour, and is still searching her spiritual truth.
When Gina Horswood packed her life in a bag and bought a one-way ticket to the other side of the world, she had no idea what was in store for her or her music career. Since October 2011, shes traveled to a whole new hemisphere, bringing with her a distinctive voice and songs inspired by her nomadic life.  
Ginas debut Our Way, penned with sister Melanie, was released in 2006 and boasted two Top 10 country singles in Australia. Porcelain is Gina's first full-length release since Our Way and the sound is rich, organic and compelling, inspired by her experiences around the world. No Depression Magazine contributor John Apice says of Gina and the album seductive tone on the rim of country & blues with power.

Though neither claims to be a saint or a sinner, both carry attributes in their works of song craft and vocals. Both Karen and Gina offer powerhouse vocals, polished award-winning songwriting, at once warm and earthy, yet vulnerable and defiant. Karen and Gina will have you celebrating life in all of its joy and broken parts while leaving you inspired and wanting more.
