ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Soaring harmonies, catchy original songs, foot-stomping fiddling: Genevieve and the Wild Sundays is an all-female band that feature the award-winning songs of Vancouver-Island homesteading, guitar playing mama Genevieve Charbonneau . With songs that run from insightful love ballads to rollicking political hootenannies, the music of the Wild Sundays is rooted in old-time country, incorporating Eastern European folk, Americana, and indi-pop.
Genevieve began crafting tales of love, loss and rural living while homesteading in the Cowichan Valley, in between raising her three sons, harvesting veggies from the garden and hauling firewood to fuel her earthen home. In 2013, longing for vocal harmonies and instrumentation for her songs, she brought together long-time bluegrasser and fellow Balkan Babe Kelly Sherwin, vocalist/percussionist Laura Carleton, and Yiddish Columbia State Orchestra’s mandolin player Chandra Crowe to create the Wild Sundays. Five time North American fiddle champion and 2017 Juno Winner Ivonne Hernandez (Fretless) joined in July 2016, bringing her virtuosic prowess to the band. This package delivers a powerful and engaging live show, with songs that will stir your heart one moment, make you laugh the next, and wow you with dazzling instrumentation and spitfire lyrics.
Their new studio album “Fine Line” was released in May 2016 to critical acclaim, and showcase the band’s “polished musicianship and shimmering harmonies” that “float through your ears like bluegrass angels”. Fine Line was nominated for three 2017 Vancouver Island Music Awards and took Producer of the Year for One Ton Studios in Victoria, BC. Folk Radio UK calls it a “ self-assured and stylish collection of very listenable contemporary folk-roots songs”.

Genevieve won the 2017 BC Musician Songwriting Competition with her song “Down Down Down”, which was also a 2017 International Acoustic Music Award finalist. Genevieve’s debut album “Updraft” garnered a Producer of the Year Award for Marc Atkinson, and her song “Farmer Ain’t in the Dell” was nominated for Country Recording of the Year at the 2014 Vancouver Island Music Awards. Genevieve and the Wild Sundays have graced stages at Rifflandia, the Islands Folk Festival, and Butchart Gardens and have toured Ireland and the west coast.
