Girls from the North Country – Wednesday, 6/9/10 at 10PM

Canadian folk sensations Dala have come a long way from their high school music class. The duo - best friends Amanda Walther and Sheila Carabine - were the only Canadian act invited to play at last year’s 50th Anniversary Newport Folk Festival.

Now Rhode Island will have the chance to experience their seamlessly blended harmonies once again with the premiere of their PBS special Girls from the North Country. Joined at the Richmond Centre for the Performing Arts in Ontario, Canada, by Oh Susanna and the Good Lovelies, the music they create evokes the beauty of the lush and rugged Great White North. By intertwining their own songs with classics by Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Gordon Lightfoot, Dala creates a concert to remember.

The pair is currently touring North America and WSBE Rhode Island PBS has tickets to Dala's performance on Wednesday, November 17th, at the Met Cafe in the Hope Artiste Village, 1005 Main Street in Pawtucket.

Tune in Wednesday, June 9 at 10 PM for details!
