Southern Souls & The Troubadour

Fall is upon us and there are so many good things in the works…First of all two new live videos are now up on the Southern Souls website! Click here to see both: Krista Muir on SS. We are also still awaiting news on whether or not Kara Blake will be directing a video for “Moderato” this fall. Fingers crossed! And speaking of the song “Moderato,” it was actually inspired by a map Shane Watt inked and that I embroidered on muslin. This map is featured in the book “Hoopla: The Art of Unexpected Embroidery” by Leanne Prain. Check out her site and see if the traveling book launch is coming to your town…sadly it’s not hitting Montreal but oh, I wish it was!

In other news, Shane Watt and I are polishing our boots and shaking out some of our vintage ensembles for upcoming performances in Kingston, Brampton and Toronto with a grand finale at the Pop Montreal Festival before I pack up my magic bag and head off to Europe for a month of touring and artistic residency’ing. Check out the “TOUR” link for all the details! I hope our paths cross here or on the flipside…

Hurricanes & Southern Souls

IRENE! Even though we were greatly disappointed not to have been able to road trip down to Brooklyn to play The West Café last weekend for the Conversation With The Cosmos benefit concert, we were lucky enough to soak up the sunshine in Montreal Friday and ended up doing an impromptu Tour de l’Isle – something I’ve been meaning to do ever since I got a proper bike fit for hills, dales, bridges and everything in between. 6 hours of cycling – criss-crossing from Montreal to Laval and back…from Pointe Claire village to Lachine to Greenspot for the poutine finale. It was WUNDERBAR! Biking is one of my favorite things in the world! If you’re in Montreal this weekend (Sep 1-3rd) check out the Bicycle Film Festival.

The Conversation With the Cosmos show will be rescheduled for this fall and will either take place in NYC or Montreal – details to come!

Last week Mitch Fillion from Southern Souls came through town and we met up with him to shoot a few songs at the sweet little vegetarian café “Lumiere de Mile End.” The videos will be up on September 8th…

Southern Souls Shoot August 2011

Brooklyn Show August 27th!

Krista will be performing in Brooklyn on Saturday, August 27th at West Café. You’ll have the unique opportunity to see Krista & Shane perform songs from her latest release “Between Atoms” as well as see clips from upcoming documentary “Conversation With The Cosmos” by Films Kookaburra. Visit the facebook event HERE.

Krista has also recently participated in the “Les Enfants de La Bolduc” project (August-Sep 2011). She learned some of the famous Gaspesienne singer Mary Travers’ (aka “La Bolduc”) songs including “Les Filles de Campagne” which she recorded with Montreal excentrics “Les Abdigradationnistes” and which will appear on a compilation in September 2011. Check out the preview for the web-documentary part of the project here:
