Bellows and Strings (B.C)

“Bellows & Strings” is a British Columbian quartet that plays an eclectic repertoire of traditional world music (French, Québecois, Brazilian) blended with jazz. Evolving from a mother-son duo entitled “Bellows and Strings” that has been performing since 2015, when the young violinist Noah Ord was only 11 years old, the group “Bellows & Strings” now includes Graham Ord on saxophone, flute, and percussion, and Aristazabal Hawkes on double bass. Anna Lumière completes the ensemble on piano and accordion.  Ord, Lumière, and Hawkes also perform in a jazz trio entitled “Moss Trio”.

“Bellows & Strings” aspires to the fusion of world music and jazz, offering beautiful traditional melodies enriched by improvisation and exploration. In the past, the two groups have been featured on the programing of a number of festivals, including the Gibson’s Jazz Festival, Rogue Arts Festival and Synchronicity Festival, as well as in cafés, clubs and various events in the region. Ord and Lumière have both released several recordings, with many original compositions. 

Graham Ord is well known for his free jazz music (Garbo’s Hat), New Music (NOW Orchestra) and Hard Rubber Orchestra, among other ventures. He has toured in Japan, the United States, and in Europe.
Anna Lumière is the founder and pianist of the group Mimosa (created in 1998, with three recordings released) and she has played and still plays with numerous ensembles, including Green Room, Sostenuto, Anagram and Tongue and Groove. She has toured in Canada, the United States and Europe.
Aristazabal Hawkes studied at the New School of Music of New York and was a long-time member of the English pop group “Guillemots”.
Noah Ord, violinist, is 18 years of age and has played for five years in the group of fiddlers named “Bad to the Bow”. He studied both classical and traditional music. He has also been a member of the Chatelech Secondary School’s concert band and jazz band (trumpet, French horn, and percussion). This year he is performing with a jazz quintet at Gibson’s Jazz Festival.

 

MARIE-CLO x ÉEMI (ON/SK)

Marie-Clo & éemi is a collaboration between two bilingual singer-songwriters separated by 3000 km of forests, rivers, mountains and prairies. Marie-Clo, Franco-Ontarian, and éemi, Fransaskoise, unite for one album. They deliver intimate, vibrant and surreal electronic pop with eco-feminist lyrics that spark their fans' empathy towards nature.

In 2017, while competing at the Planète BRBR finale (a music competition for francophone musicians outside Québec), the two reach a secret agreement: to share a portion of the grand prize, regardless of who the jury crowns the winner. Thus, the two artists come out winners. This is what gives them the strength to pursue their solo careers independently for a few years, while continuing to fuel the growth of this forest they have just planted.

The Franco-Ontarian multidisciplinary chameleon Marie-Clo decides to plant a garden. Following the success of her first French EP Faune, she plants another, her first full album, this time mainly in English: Shell(e), released in three parts in 2020 and 2021. With international recognition, Shell(e) topped many national charts (Sirius XM, Stingray, Radio-Canada, etc.), won « Album of the Year » with the Capital Music Awards and a Trille Or for her single “Red Flag”.

The tireless Fransaskoise bee, Éemi, collects nectar from several flowers to make honey. She also released « Honey », her first EP, which received nominations at the Western Canadian Music Awards, the Saskatchewan Music Awards and the Gala des prix Trille Or.

In 2022, their forest is dense and mature. With the support of MusicAction, the Canada Arts Council, the Ontario Arts Council, the Ottawa Music Industry Coalition and the Conseil culturel fransaskois, Marie-Clo & Éemi enter a symbiotic relationship. Their songs personify flora and fauna, draw inspiration from modern science, and showcase co-evolution : their friendship. The first one, “Two Lips Part I” will be released on May 20, 2022.
