Tragedy Ann is a Canadian forward-looking Folk duo. Braiding organic vocal harmonies with organ, accordion, singing saw, and guitars, Tragedy Ann’s arrangements are as delicate as they are driving. Their concerts emanate “…the honesty and enthusiasm of people who can’t help but create and perform.” (Georgian Bay Roots). With their new album Heirlooms, Liv Cazzola and Braden Phelan issue a call for deeper connection with each other and with the natural world. Their album release tour brought them across Canada, Germany, Belgium, Norway, and Italy, performing at such venues as the National Arts Centre, Blue Skies Music Festival, and Egersund Visefestival.
