Canadian Folk Music Award winner (Contemporary Album of the Year 2017) Abigail LaPell comes to The Carleton as part of our Dinner At The Carleton series on Friday, February 28th. She’ll be entertaining us from 5-8 PM and, as always with this series, it’s FREE. This is a rare treat folks, come out to see her!
Call it prairie noir, or Canadiana desert rock: Abigail Lapell sings haunting, gorgeous modern folk songs, mapping epic natural landscapes and deeply intimate, personal territory. The Toronto vocalist, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist has released three acclaimed solo albums. Hide Nor Hair, her Chris Stringer-produced sophomore LP, won a Canadian Folk Music Award for Contemporary Album of the Year in 2017. Since then, Lapell has been on the road, touring across Canada, the U.S. and Europe, and playing at festivals like Pop Montreal, Mariposa, In The Dead Of Winter, Tiny Lights and Folk On The Rocks. Getaway, , Lapell’s ambitious third release, is out February 1st 2019 on Coax Records/Outside.
