The Carolines made their debut at the Chair in 2013, and have since turned their tight-harmony, old-time-Country sound into one of the most sought-after acts in the west.
When they commence to singing, you’ll be tapping your toes and singing along to all the old familiar tunes by Patsy Cline, Buck Owens, Trio, the Dixie Chicks and more. With clever arrangements and spine-tingling harmonies, they breathe new life into the old songs, and put an authentic old-time spin on the contemporary tunes. In the band’s seven years together they have become the sweethearts of many Alberta festivals, music venues, folk clubs and house concerts.
