Shea Presents: Ona Canoa w/ Kimaya Diggs
Saturday, November 16, 2019, 7:30 pm
Doors at 7pm/ Show: 7:30pm
Ona Canoa is a new Western Massachusetts folk trio with a timeless sound. The group is comprised of Chelsie Field (baritone ukulele/ vox), Eliza Hollister (flute/ vox), and Tess Burdick (guitar/vox). Inspired by impromptu three-part harmonies sang aboard a canoe one summer evening, the longtime best friends evolved into a band in the fall of 2018. In the short time since this happy accident, Ona Canoa has already found a dream-come-true success in the local music scene. They have quickly progressed from playing small open-studio performances to sold-out shows at Hawks and Reed, The Root Cellar, and Hawks and Reed’s Pushkin Gallery, where they played a headlining show in June 2019.
Ona Canoa is celebrating their one-year milestone with their highly anticipated debut EP, “Good Dream,” set to be released November 16, 2019 in conjunction with a show at the Shea Theater in Turners Falls, MA. “Good Dream” marks the perfect introduction to Ona Canoa’s signature three-piece harmonies and striking songwriting ability. This will be the last Ona Canoa show until summer 2020, and one not to miss!
Kimaya Diggs Music
With influences spanning many genres, Kimaya Diggs melds the folky acrobatics of Joni Mitchell, the jazz stylings of Ella Fitzgerald, the catchy soul of Lianne LaHavas, and yet has something you can't quite put your finger on that makes her entirely unique. Her mastery of her voice is the focal point of each performance, and a transfixing experience. Her performances are half-song, half-story, and always captivating and emotional. She is a multi-instrumentalist, trained in classical piano and cello, and accompanying herself on guitar and ukulele. Her debut album, Breastfed, is a chronicle of bittersweet growing pains, expansive and generous.
