The O'Pears @Charslanding
Wed, Aug 2nd, 7-9pm, Concert The OPears - A Capella Folk Trio
The OPears are a Toronto-based contemporary folk trio made up of Lydia Persaud, Jill Harris and Meg Contini, three songwriters who weave stories that stir the spirit and capture the timeless character of folk music. Like Those Nights, their debut album, captures soaring harmonies and a seamless blend, evoking the profound intimacy of Nick Drake, the sister-like blend of The Staves and the dynamic harmony of Crosby, Stills, and Nash. Live performances turn the loudest bar into the warmest house concert, with their endearing, unabashed personalities balancing the intimate sincerity of the songwriting.
They recently performed to high acclaim at festivals such as Summerfolk, Great Heart Festival, Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival, garnered radio play across Canada, including CBC, and have been featured live with Royal Wood, Good Lovelies, Michelle Willis, and Coco Love Alcorn. Each band member a distinctly talented musician with a stand-alone voice, style, and stage presence, when these three come together it is breathtaking. A striking mix of tight a cappella and rootsy instrumentation, Like Those Nights explores lessons learned about love and loss through the eyes and hearts of young Canadian storytellers. The OPears continue to bring a strong, honest voice to the modern female perspective.
"The O'Pears are masters of harmony laden folk-blues. They effortlessly blend the traditional elements of their musical heritage with enigmatic lyricism that captures the trio's individual perspectives and combines them with unique and spell-binding effect."
Ryan O'Reilly, UK Singer-Songwriter
