Guelph, ON February 3, 2014 – Love is in the air as River Run Centre celebrates the Best of Borealis on Valentine’s Day, Friday, February 14, 2014 at 8 p.m. with an exciting double bill featuring The Good Lovelies and David Myles. Ticket holders are invited to enjoy a complimentary pre-show reception, starting at 7 p.m. hosted by The Woolwich Arrow, featuring wine tasting by Diamond Estates and desserts by Appetizingly Yours Catering along with entertainment by members of the Guelph Symphony Orchestra.
This double bill concert is presented as a special addition to River Run’s Borealis Music Series this season. “It’s been an honour to sponsor the presentation of many talented singer songwriters as part of the Borealis Series over the past five years,” says Bob Desautels, President of The Neighbourhood Group of Companies. “The Good Lovelies and David Myles were among the many highlights, and we’re thrilled to sponsor their return for a celebratory Best of Borealis concert on the Main Stage.”
The Good Lovelies are known for their exquisite three-part harmonies, humour, sass and upbeat stage presence. In addition, they each play a variety of instruments – often swapping back and forth with ease. Since joining forces in 2006, The Good Lovelies have received wide acclaim, appearing regularly on the festival circuit and touring throughout Canada, the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom. Their breezy, bright dispositions made them a natural choice to tour with CBC Radio’s Stuart McLean and the Vinyl Café. The trio has been honoured with a Canadian Folk Music Award and a Juno Award.
David Myles has also earned accolades as one of Canada’s musical stars, including East Coast Music Awards and a SOCAN Award. He is celebrated as a talented musician who has forged his own path, melding modern and vintage pop, folk and soul music. He cites the music of Brazil, Africa and hip hop as his influences. The result is a sound described as ‘somewhere on the spectrum between James Taylor and Justin Timberlake’. Audience members will enjoy the showmanship, musicianship and storytelling prowess that have made Myles a favourite with fans.
