Ingrid Gatin plays Falconetti’s January 8th-WIN TICKETS!

7 Jan

Ingrid Gatin is an amazing singer, songwriter and pianist. Hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba she is bringing her beautiful voice, sincere lyrics and memorable melodies to Vancouver’s Falconetti’s Saturday, January 8th.

Ingrid has taken off on the road with Montreal musician Mateo Tomlinson and they are making stops all over the West Coast while also playing on board VIA rail train cars, entertaining passengers along the way.

Here is an excerpt from her page on the Musebox website about how the idea came in to fruition and what the tour is all about:

“Winnipeg’s indie/roots darling Ingrid Gatin is touring by train across Western Canada this winter, together with musician Mateo Tomlinson of Montréal.

The pair will leave snowbound Winnipeg behind on December 29th, entertaining passengers onboard VIA Rail train cars for the New Years Eve Party, and then stop off in Vancouver for a rousing and raucous performance at the Railway Club on Jan. 1.This surefire morning-after cure will see Gatin partnering with Vancouver’s own Accordion Noir Festival and accompanying radio program to promote the obviously accordion-based music show, with Gatin’s own style of gypsy-French café accordion.

The Railway Club will be the perfect landing for the duo, who will then go on to tour Vancouver Island for a week, and round off its BC stint at Vancouver’s fantastic Falconetti’s.on January 8th. The train will stop twice while winding its way back to Winnipeg, in Jasper and in Edmonton with three more stand-up shows.

Gatin speaks about the idea: “The train was always something that intrigued me, growing up in small town Saskatchewan, listening to the sound of the train every night before falling asleep. I wanted to try to integrate my music with my travel, and the train seemed like the perfect way, and fortunately VIA Rail was into the idea too.”

Following this tour, Gatin returns to a cold Winnipeg winter to start work on her new album save for a few 2011 escapes to Memphis for the Folk Alliance in February and then Toronto for Canadian Music Fest in March. Gatin is already receiving attention for her upcoming album, releasing one of her new tracks exclusively to Exclaim! online. Watch for her new album, released this May 2011 and another cross Canada tour to support it.”
