For the last 3 years, Lauren Hamm and Alixandra Cowman have been touring across North America as the bluegrass-infused folk band known as "The Dearhearts". The Dearhearts sound is a unique blend of folk, jazz and bluegrass styles, inspired by legends like The Carter Family and Emmylou Harris, and current artists like Sarah Jane Scouten, Allison Krauss, and Nickel Creek. They've performed at events and festivals across the country (Canadian Music Week, The Extreme Tour, 15 Minutes of Fame Music Festival), and have had two successful runs in the annual CBC Searchlight competition, reaching the final rounds both times. Their highly anticipated second album, "Enough To Go Around", will be released in the spring of 2018.
Lauren and Alixandra will entertain you with their lively stories, tug at your heartstrings with their soaring harmonies, and tickle your funny bones with their quick wit. The Dearhearts are sweet, sassy, and simply delightful.
