Dala Booked at the Stockey Centre

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

We are ecstatic to have the girls of Dala returning to the Stockey Centre!

Proud recipients of the 2010 Canadian Folk Music Award for Vocal Group of the Year, female duo Dala have established themselves as major rising stars in the pop-folk circuit. Recently, Dala has earned their very first Juno Award nomination! Their live album “Girls From The North Country” has been nominated in the category of Roots and Traditional Album of the Year: Group.

The sheer joy with which they perform is infectious, turning first-time listeners into instant fans. Dala have toured across Canada six times, opening for artists such as Jann Arden, Tom Cochrane, Matthew Good, Stuart McLean of the CBC’s Vinyl Café and most recently, Chantal Kreviazuk who they opened for here at the Stockey Centre in December 2009. You might also recognize Dala from their performance here in October 2009 for the Neil Young Tribute.

Drawing upon influences like The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Bob Dylan, Dala write songs that are both catchy and insightful. Amanda’s ethereal soprano voice blends seamlessly with Sheila’s velvety alto, creating the lush harmonies that have become their trademark. To accentuate their beautiful voices, Dala will be using the perfect Stockey Centre acoustics to record a live album at this show!

The combination of this unique group in the unique Stockey venue on Friday, May 27th, 2011 is something you do not want to miss. Tickets are on sale to now Members Only and go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011 at 9:00am. Tickets are $35 for Adults and $33 for Seniors and Students.

Hope to see everyone here for a great show!
