Canadian folk trio, The Once, are performing at Kirton-in-Lindsey Town Hall on Saturday 22ndMarch.

From their beginnings as three actors who also loved to sing together, The Once has embraced a different vision of Newfoundland music.

As a trio, the band has kept it uncomplicated, depending on the power of their voices and acoustic instruments. Lead singer Geraldine Hollett, has an instrument of rare power; she is a singer who can still a noisy room, a voice that can tell a novel-length story with a few words. Accompanied by Phil Churchill and Andrew Dale on guitar, mandolin, fiddle and bouzouki, they create a perfect blend of voice and melody.

They are currently recording a new album for release later this spring, but audiences will be able to hear them before that.

Their albums have built a gradual but fervent following, and their live show is unique in its combination of intimacy and power.
