Moscow Apartment

Join us for one of our favourite up-and-coming bands! This will be a high-energy show that we know will be a hit with all ages.

About Moscow Apartment: Recent winners of Slaight Music’s national ‘It’s Your Shot’ songwriting contest and the grand prize of a $100,000 Artist Development contract, teenage Toronto folk-propelled duo Moscow Apartment is as instinctive as they come. The naturally-engrained chemistry between singers-and-songwriters Brighid Fry and Pascale Padilla is evident on the five-song, self-titled EP that has earned them extensive airplay on CBC and NPR and also reflected in a performance style that has made them the darlings of the Winterfolk, Winnipeg Folk and Guelph Hillside festivals. Currently recording an EP with six-time Grammy winner Vance Powell (Chris Stapleton, Jack White) and several other notable producers for Hidden Pony Records, Moscow Apartment’s fresh, genuine and candid perspective through the window of their adolescent world speaks to the masses as only they can. Organic music at its finest.

A message from Kim:
Hi! I'm leaving Halifax for a while so this will be my last show in our pretty city until next fall!
I wanted it to be in the north end with friends and loved ones because I will miss it and you, so where better than our lovely syrup factory.
This will be a gentle night, we will all get to bed early, full of love. I hope you can join me.
