Ghostly Hounds

Saturday Sept 16, 2017 – 9:00 PM – Pints & Quarts (779 Bank St)

What was your reaction to the news you’d be a part of Marvest and who was the first person you told?
We found out we were going to be a part of Marvest while we were nearing the end of a two month tour. We were very excited but didn’t tell anyone right away because we were still on the road.

Please describe your sound.
We combine strings, horns and powerful vocals to create a dark, jazzy sound.

How did you get started on your musical journey?
Francesca had been performing as a solo artist for just over a year when she met the band. The band formed organically with both Matthew (upright bass) and Suzanne (trumpet and mandolin) approaching her separately after seeing her perform solo. Vimul (cello and saw) joined the band about a year later, but he and Francesca had been playing music together for about 10 years.

What can music fans expect from your show? Will you be playing or releasing any new music?
Ghostly Hounds’ live performance has been described as an ethereal, captivating and emotional experience. We will have with us our debut full-length album which was released this past July.

What artists are you hoping to catch during this year’s Cityfolk and Marvest?
We are very excited about Tank and the Bangas and Rodriguez!
