Fortunate Ones duo Catherine Allan and Andrew O’Brien know a lot about what it takes to make a good partnership.
Their sophomore album, HOLD FAST, is a study in resilience and community and sees the duo stretching their musical muscles into new, fully realized sonic territory. Filled with the familiar and effortless harmony, boundless energy and optimism that has gained the duo thousands of fans, HOLD FAST, produced by ECMA award winning producer, Daniel Ledwell, is a collective effort that has yielded songs from a pair whose humility and quiet dignity belies a roaring artistic heart. The title track “Hold Fast” hit #1 on the CBC Music Top 20 Chart and remained in the Top 20 for 10 weeks. The album also took home three Music NL Awards in 2018: Pop Artist of the Year, Video of the Year for Northern Star (directed by Jason Levangie) and Album of the Year.
Expect choice selections from across their albums, including All Will Be Well, their holiday recording that features both classic and original songs about the duo’s own joy and nostalgia for the season. For Fortunate Ones, Christmas is a time of year for reflection, appreciation, and gratitude and they hope that these sentiments come through with this intimate and heart-warming live show.
