Dear Friends of Oh My Darling,
We hope this message finds you well, and that spring has sprung up around you! We write with bittersweet news. After 8 years, we have collectively made the decision to move on from Oh My Darling. This band has been such a huge part of all of our lives and careers, and it is bittersweet to say goodbye. It was an incredible experience to start a band from scratch and end up playing at places like Trafalgar Square in London, Tønder Festival in Denmark and the mainstage at The Winnipeg Folk Festival. We played in 13 different countries, made 3 full length albums and 2 EP’s, toured all over Canada and Europe and had an amazing time doing it. We feel proud of the accomplishments of this band and we all have so much to take away from our experiences as a group.
Please join us May 24, 2015 at the West End Cultural Centre in Winnipeg for Oh My Darling's farewell concert; a retrospective of the music we've shared, a thank you to our friends and fans, and celebration of all the good times. We are excited to announce that the final show will feature the original line up - Allison de Groot, Marie-Josée Dandeneau, Vanessa Kuzina and Rosalyn Dennett. Rosalyn left the band in 2013, and we are so happy to have her with us for our final show. We hope you will come and celebrate with us the West End Cultural Centre on May 24th, 2015 at 8pm.
Tickets are available at the West End Cultural Centre or online through Ticket Fly here. Tickets go on sale April 24th.
We want to send out a heartfelt thank you to all of our fans out there- you made it possible for us every step of the way! We feel so lucky to have made so many new friends all over the world. Also a big thank you to the Winnipeg music community- our first shows at the Times Change(d) High and Lonesome Club and Festival du Voyageur surrounded by family, friends and peers are some of the most special moments to the band.
We hope to see you on May 24th, and if you have some special Oh My Darling memories you would like to share, we'd love to read them. Please send to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Allison, MJ, Vanessa and Rosalyn
