Tannis Slimmon

Guelph’s Tannis Slimmon releases her latest album, In and Out of Harmony on Saturday February 16 2013 at 8:00 p.m. at the Guelph Little Theatre.

Produced by long-time partner Lewis Melville, the album features 13 new songs that explore a variety of personal yet universal themes. Featuring an array of talent from the Canadian folk-roots scene alongside Juno-winning kora player Mansa Sissoko and ngoni master Abdoulaye Kone the album is the perfect follow-up to 2007’s award-winning Lucky Blue. Among the musicians adding their chops to this release you can namecheck Martin Tielli and Dave Clark (from the Rheostatics), Harry Manx, David Francey, Ray Bonneville and Treasa Levasseur among others.

Stylistically the album builds on the experience of Tannis’ visits to Mali and Cuba while, like forebears Lucky Blue and Oak Lake, maintaining that distinct Tannis Slimmon folk-roots feel. Tannis’ warm clear vocals float over a rich musical background that accentuates the contribution of her long-time musical compadre Lewis Melville.

Global meets African, Folk meets Gospel. A folk-roots tour de force with Malian and Cuban overtones. You’ll not be disappointed!
