Soaring harmonies, catchy original songs, foot-stomping fiddling: Genevieve and the Wild Sundays is an all-female quintet that feature the award-winning songs of Vancouver-Island homesteading, guitar playing mama Genevieve Charbonneau . With songs that run from insightful love ballads to rollicking political hootenannies, the music of the Wild Sundays is rooted in old-time country, incorporating Eastern European folk, Americana, and indi-pop.

Sweet Papa Lowdown was conceived by guitarist/vocalist Jeff Shucard as a unique ensemble of hot syncopated musicians dedicated to bringing a contemporary vitality to the classic jazz and blues tunes of the 1920’s & ‘30’s. Drawing from such past masters as Ma Rainey, Bo Carter and Leroy Carr, Sweet Papa Lowdown combines the raw intensity of country string blues with the sophisticated horns of New Orleans.
