Join Canadian tenor John McDermott and his special guests the award-winning DALA as they deliver holiday cheer and make a stop at Gravenhurst Opera House. As is John’s tradition, he will sing holiday favourites, songs from his illustrious musical career, and tasteful Remembrance tributes.
Juno nominees and winners of the 2010 Canadian Folk Music Award for Vocal Group of the Year, DALA (Amanda Walther and Sheila Carabine) write and sing in harmony that can best be described as angelic. These two best friends met in their high school music class in 2002 and have since released five albums and toured extensively across North America. Drawing upon influences like The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Bob Dylan, Dala write songs that are both catchy and soulful. Amanda’s ethereal soprano voice blends seamlessly with Sheila’s velvety alto, creating the lush harmonies that have become their trademark.
