************************
Fresh off the road from a very busy spring tour with her trio Boreal, Tannis Slimmon brings her sweet acoustic sounds to The Coulson Concerts. Tannis and Boreal delighted a sold-out Coulson audience last season. This time she returns as part of a duo with her long-time partner and collaborator, Lewis Melville.

With musical roots firmly planted in the soil of the Canadian Prairies and a passion for lyrical vocal harmonies, Tannis Slimmon has been singing, song writing, recording and touring for over 35 years.

She has three solo albums and numerous guest vocal appearances on others, including those by Willie P. Bennett, Valdy, David Francey and Rheostatics. In fact, her name appears in the credits of over 100 recordings. Through the years, Tannis Slimmon has been involved in The Bird Sisters, The Lucky Sisters, Boreal, Ondine Chorus, Essentia and has been described as “a breathtaking vocalist with a bright and angelic disposition”. https://tannis.ca/

Lewis Melville is a Guelph composer, producer, recording artist, and multi-instrumentalist (guitars, banjo, pedal steel, mandolin). His musical adventures have taken him across Canada, North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa with Canadian bands Skydiggers, Rheostatics, and others. His playing can be heard on scores of albums by other artists including the multi-million selling album Gordon by The Barenaked Ladies.

We look forward to welcoming this talented duo to Coulson. This show is sure to sell out. Tickets $25 at https://annewalker.ca/the-coulson-concerts

The venue: Located at 301 Horseshoe Valley Road W, the little white church has stood watch at the top of Coulson hill on the Horseshoe Valley Road for over 140 years. The church, built in 1881, was closed as a place of worship in the 1960s and recently restored preserving many original features, including an ornate Victorian tin ceiling, pews, plank flooring, a cast iron and nickel-plated stove, and the original pulpit. Coulson Church provides an enchanting setting in which to enjoy authentic Canadian music.
