Tragedy Ann & Martine @ Fromagerie Elgin

Tragedy Ann (forward-looking folk) is bringing Matches to Canada's “Middle Coast” for the first time in August! Their performances in Northern ON, MB and SK will embrace the intimacy of living rooms and gardens, the grandeur of festival stages, and the natural pairing of culinary art with music.

Joining Tragedy Ann at this concert will be their favourite Sudbury artist Martine Fortin, serenading us with her insightful and sultry piano, guitar and vocal arrangements.

Doors at 6pm
Music at 6:30pm

$10 advance ( | $15 door


About Tragedy Ann:

Forward-looking folk duo Tragedy Ann finds warmth in questions and daring in answers, making space for the tear that lies behind laughter. With intimacy and care, the duo favours a flashlight over a spotlight in songs for community, nature, and hardworking hospital staff. Braiding organic harmonies with accordion, singing saw, guitars, and ukulele, Liv Cazzola and Braden Phelan’s arrangements are as delicate as they are driving.

Their sounds and stories were most recently captured on September 2018’s release ‘Matches’, garnering them two ‘Songs from the Heart’ songwriting awards (Folk Music Ontario), national folk/roots radio charting, and syndication on CBC Radio and Stingray Music. Regularly touring across Canada (and, shortly, in Europe and the USA), Tragedy Ann concerts emanate “the honesty and enthusiasm of people who can’t help but create and perform.” (Jon Farmer, Georgian Bay Roots).

Whether it be a favourite pair of reading glasses or the chemistry created when songwriters share a vision, depth is best observed through two lenses.


About Martine:

Originaire de Sudbury, Ontario, Martine est une artiste élégante armée d’une voix somptueuse et d’un regard séduisant. Son style est influencé par le jazz, le blues, le soul, et l’alternatif. Elle introduit des paroles authentiques avec un air mature et introspectif tout en s’accompagnant au piano. Martine façonne alors des compositions originales avec ses mélodies envoutantes qui incitent à cogiter.

Celles-ci lui ont mérité un amas de prix dans divers concours tels que: La Brunante et Rond-Point (anciennement Ontario-Pop). Remis par l’APCM : Prix Réseau National des Galas de la Chanson, Prix Coup de Cœur Francophone, Prix Petite Vallée, Prix Folk Music Ontario.

Martine étudie présentement Les arts du spectacle au Collège Cambrian tout en poursuivant sa carrière d’auteur-compositeur-interprète. Elle a eu l’honneur d’être invitée à se présenter à La Nuit Émergente et à La Nuit sur l’Étang. C’est avec une grande anticipation qu’elle s’apprête à offrir son spectacle au public du Festival International de la Chanson de Granby.

Thursday, August 22 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm
