Past song of the week / January 2013

Oh My Darling
"Ma Belle"

From the album Venez Danser

Featured track, available from January 24 to February 1

If you haven't been in Europe lately, you probably haven't had many chances to see Oh My Darling live. The busy roots quartet has racked up the frequent flyer miles with tours to Switzerland and Germany and beyond, as well as recent festivals and showcases a little closer to home at events like Pop Montreal. Local audiences will get a chance to see and hear the band at the West End Cultural Centre on January 26 when it releases its French-language EP, Venez Danser. The six-song album, which follows up the Western Canadian Music Award-nominated Sweet Nostalgia, is a collection of the French material the band has been performing and recording over the last four years, including this week's featured song, "Ma Belle". Next month, the band will head to Toronto to showcase at the International Folk Alliance conference. Meanwhile, download "Ma Belle" for free and don't miss Oh My Darling's hometown CD release party, and read more about the band on CBC SceneClick here for show details.
