The Marigolds in Concert

the Marigolds
Caitlin Hanford, Suzie Vinnick, Gwen Swick

Saturday, October 3rd
Doors open 8:00, Concert at 8:30
$18 advance / $20 door.

The Marigolds are three great solo artists who share a love of good songs,
beautiful harmonies and great grooves. Caitlin Hanford and Gwen Swick
(both of Quartette) and Suzie Vinnick (of Betty & the Bobs; Vinnick,
Sheppard and Harte; Suzie and Rick Fines) are as impressive as their combined
years in the business. Each member of The Marigolds has performed in concert
from coast to coast, at folk festivals, on radio and television.
A gold mine of talent oozing with sticky-sweet harmonies,
they deliver heart-warming songs that are enough to brighten anyone's day.

CAITLIN HANFORD is originally from Bainbridge Island, Washington. She immigrated to Canada,
after graduating from McGill University, to embark on a music career with her husband,
Chris Whiteley. Caitlin's repertoire includes outstanding original songs and many
undiscovered "gems". Her voice has a pure, Appalachian quality, perfectly suited to the high,
lonesome sound of traditional country and bluegrass.

She is also one quarter of the wonderful vocal group, Quartette.

GWEN SWICK can write a lyric that will sink into your heart like a tattoo. Her music is a shifting
palette of folk, jazz, country and blues, and she sings with a mesmerizing voice that evokes a sense
of wonder. Born in Winnipeg, she has lived in many cities and on military bases across the country.
At York University, she studied viola da gamba and East Indian singing.
She performs with her own group and has also been
member of the folk group Tamarack and, more recently, Quartette.

SUZIE VINNICK is a singer, songwriter and musician who was awarded the 2003 Canadian Maple Blues
Female Vocalist of the Year. A Saskatoon native living in Toronto, Suzie is the owner
of a gorgeous, powerful voice and performs with a sweet mixture of engaging candidness and

unparalleled musicianship. Her music is roots-based branching out into blues, folk and pop.
She performs as a solo act, and is also a member of the groups Betty & the Bobs
and the pop trio, Vinnick Sheppard Harte (VSH).

The Marigold's performance takes place Saturday, October 3rd, 8:30 pm
The Pearl Company, 16 Steven St., Hamilton, ON
