Ottawa-based Local Colour performs original songs and interpretations with catchy rhythms and edgy, sweet harmonies. They share their lives, loves and activist beliefs in genres ranging from rousing Atlantic ditties to intensely personal love songs.
They came together by chance at a community music program led by impresario Chris White. Encouraged by the warm support at Spirit of Rasputin’s open stage at Whispers and Bob Nesbitt, producer of Grassroots Festival, they thrive on this opportunity to fine tune their diverse repertoire. They are: Lili, vocals; Patricia, guitar and vocals; Debbie, banjo, percussion and vocals; and Juanita, djembe and vocals.
