Fortunate Ones ~ Manotick, ON

November 30 @ 7:00 pm

Fortunate Ones is a contemporary folk duo from Newfoundland. Celebrated for their harmony-entwined songs of hope, resilience, and the human condition and their joyfully disarming live shows, they have toured relentlessly, bringing their open-hearted performances to thousands of people across North America and beyond. Catherine and Andrew have been busy since the release of their debut album The Bliss in 2015 – thousands of miles, hundreds of shows, award winning albums and scores of fans have all been hallmarks of the success the duo has experienced since their humble beginnings in St. John’s. The Bliss was nominated for a Juno Award and landed two #1 singles on CBC Radio 2’s Top 20. On their sophomore album Hold Fast, the title track hit #1 on the CBC Music Top 20 Chart. The album also took home three Music NL Awards in 2018, was nominated for four East Coast Music Awards, and the 2019 Canadian Folk Music Award for Vocal Group of the Year.

To date, songs from Hold Fast have over 16 million streams on Spotify. Fortunate Ones released That Was You and Me in 2022 and embarked on the Anchor’s Up Tour with The Once and Old Man Luedecke across Canada. The single “Heavy Heart” was nominated for the Single of the Year Award at the 2023 Canadian Folk Music Award and the album was nominated at the Junos in the Contemporary Roots Album category. In May 2023, the album won the ECMA for Folk Recording of the Year.
