The Pairs & Rachael Kilgour come together for a special night of music from both acts!
Family is what ties The Pairs together. With soaring harmonies, they share stories of life’s hope, hilarity, and hardship. An honest, quirky stage presence and their unbottled chemistry, quickly connects them with their audience. The line between the stage and the crowd becomes blurred as if we’ve all pulled up a seat around their family’s lively kitchen table. Powered by three classically trained vocalists and a former punk rock drummer, The Pairs offer a unique blend of music that will hug your eardrums and inspire you to dance.
“The Pairs became a festival favourite after their very first song. Their infectious energy, joy, and talent had the entire audience enraptured immediately and they have become the band most requested to return ever since. Book them while you still can! I hope I can!”
– Miranda Mulholland, Artistic Director of Muskoka Music Festival and Dockside Festival
“The Pairs are some of the nicest people I’ve ever met and one of my favourite groups to work with. Not only are they unbelievably talented, but you would be hard pressed to find a more professional young group out there.”
– Tim Fraser, Artistic Director of Home County Music and Art Festival
