Pints & Quarts Live Music Series - Dirty Sheep and Tara Holloway
Pints & Quarts is very excited to present Dirty Sheep and Tara Holloway as part of our Friday Live Music Series!!
Tara Holloway and Dirty Sheep provide the soundtrack of your leaving. Whether you are walking away from winter, a bad relationship, or something broke that just can’t be fixed, we got the song for you.
Holloway has been doing very little other than sing her entire life; sing, and laugh. Which encompasses the nature of her work, which is joy–or in her words, “fun”. But there is nothing frivolous in her approach, or the content of her songs. They are often about difficult subjects, of a wild past, identity and unfortunate affairs to forget–or write songs about.
You may have caught them playing on the patio at Ps & Qs this summer during Marvest in an impromptu performance that clogged the sidewalk with attentive ears. Described by CKCU’s Chris White (Canadian Spaces) as “soulful” the duo brings a powerful blues vocal styling to their sincere songwriting. Solid harmonies dance between Deborah’s powerful lead and Allain’s gritty follow. Committed to songs that celebrate the bittersweet beauty of everyday life, the band name mirrors this ethic and the energetic versatility that follows from their busking days.
