Carli and Julie Kennedy

Holiday concert with Carli and Julie Kennedy

Bozzini’s holiday concert this year features Carli and Julie Kennedy on their Christmas tour with special guests, West My Friend.

It’s like seeing double.

Carli and Julie Kennedy are a Canadian powerhouse duo with a musical bond that only identical twins can share.

Bozzini’s is pleased to present a yearly holiday concert this year featuring Carli and Julie Kennedy on their Christmas tour with special guests, West My Friend.

With Carli Kennedy on vocals and guitar and Julie Kennedy on vocals and violin, they have developed a sound that is all their own: a fusion of their background in country, folk, jazz, and Celtic music. Originally from the small town of Powell River, these sisters are known for their exceptional harmonies, fine musicality, and sincere songwriting style. An undeniably energetic duo, their performances bring a mix of toe-tapping tunes and intimate, heartfelt songs to the stage. The sisters just returned from a tour of Tennessee, including two nights in historic Franklin and were nominated for five BCCMA awards last week.

Since West My Friend was conceived in a Victoria café in 2009, they’ve emerged as a unique voice in the city’s music scene. Described as everything from indie-roots to chamber-folk, their acoustic blend of instruments and four-part harmonies challenges the conventions of popular music to create a performance that is both engaging and innovative. Songs are created through a collaborative process: well-crafted and clever lyrics, acrobatic mandolin riffs, flawless bass lines, and richly textured accordion combine as every member brings forward their own ideas and experiences. The wealth of musical

experience and classical training in the group creates an interesting backdrop for their songwriting, allowing for levels of detail, intricacy, and counterpoint balanced with moments of simplicity. This sonically adventurous approach to music defines West My Friend as a key part of a growing movement of the new generation of grass-roots folk music taking place in Victoria, Vancouver and across British Columbia.

Carli and Julie Kennedy, Wednesday Dec. 12. Tables available from 6 p.m. Tickets $20. Available now at Bozzini’s or call 604 792 0744 to reserve by phone
