Karla Mundy Band

Accessible All ages
This is a CD Launch concert for Karla Mundy's first solo CD, Way Back. Karla is a founding member of the No Shit Shirleys and Plough, and also a former member of Celtic bands Mad Pudding and Cleia. She leads a choir or two (or more!) and sings backup with David Francey from time to time. Drawing on blues and old-time roots, Way Back features Karla's powerful singing, beautiful rich harmonies and intricate, original arrangements. She brought together a cast of some of Vancouver's finest roots musicians which led to thoughtful, creative and fresh collaborations on a soulful collection of songs. Exploring new, true and lost love, reflection at the end of life, the telling of old histories, these songs are reflective, evocative and true as oak. They were mostly recorded live off the floor and you can hear the songs just as they existed in that moment...
The Musicians who worked with her on the CD will also take part in this special concert - Karla Mundy - vocals, Steve Charles - guitar and vocals, TimTweedale - dobro and Weissenborn, Patrick Metzger - bass, Kori Myanishi - banjo, fiddle and vocals, Keona Hammond - vocals, Dawn Pemberton - vocals, Melanie Spence - vocals, and Chris Suen - banjo.
