Genevieve and the Wild Sundays

Soaring harmonies, catchy songs, original folk-roots music: this
all-female trio features the award-winning songs of Vancouver-Island
homesteading, guitar playing mama Genevieve Charbonneau . With Kelly
Sherwin on upright bass, and 5 time North American fiddle champion
Ivonne Hernandez on fiddle, the music of the Wild Sundays is rooted in
old-time country, incorporating bluegrass, Canadiana and indi-pop.
Genevieve’s clever and insightful lyrics inspire goosebumps, laughter,
and tears, while Ivonne’s virtuosic fiddling will have you
foot-stomping. Kelly covers the bass notes, holding down the low
harmonies and keeping a solid groove. They released a new studio album
“Fine Line” in May 2016, showcasing the band’s “polished musicianship
and shimmering harmonies” that “float through your ears like bluegrass
angels”. Genevieve’s first album “Updraft” was nominated for 2
Vancouver Island Music Awardsin 2015, including Country Recording of
the Year, and took Producer of the Year for Marc Atkinson.

"Their close knit harmonies and lyrics cast us across a wide range of
emotions and their instrumentation lifted us off the ground like
‘dandelion seeds’ on a summer breeze." Joe Chauncy
