About the Event
June 9th, we are excited to host Pender Island's GHOSTLY HOUNDS!
Ghostly Hounds is known for having a “double take” inducing performance, to which audience members often ascribe terms such as “haunting” or “enchanting”. No matter the format in which they perform, the sound is larger than life. Francesca fills out their solo performance with a driving kick drum and expert banjo playing. When performing as a band, the traditional combination of banjo and fiddle met with classically trained, powerhouse vocals evoke a fusion of modern and vintage sounds. Upright bass imbues the performance with melodic rhythm, moving their audience between states of mesmerized captivation and joyful dancing. Audiences can expect an intimate experience from Ghostly Hounds, with a focus on deeply personal songwriting and vulnerable storytelling, powerfully delivered by Francesca’s signature commanding vocals.
Ghostly Hounds is the folk project of Francesca Mirai, singer-songwriter and banjo player based out of S,DÁYES/ Pender Island, BC. With a background in classical, jazz and punk, Francesca has become known for their unique vocals. They captivate their audience with a clear, soaring range, powerful projection and just the right amount of grit, coalescing elegantly with traditional and modern banjo instrumentals. Formed in Tiohtià:ke/ Montréal and often on the road, Ghostly Hounds has toured this project all over the country delivering hundreds of performances from coast-to-coast.
Francesca’s deeply personal song writing, with focus on themes of love and grief, has evoked adoration from listeners across Canada and the United States. Their skill as a songwriter, the intimacy and vulnerability of their songs, and their original and soulful arrangements have earned Ghostly Hounds enduring and enthusiastic support from their fans. Ghostly Hounds’ sophomore album, In The Rubble, released September 10th 2022.
