‘Sirens’ set to enthrall all

Armed with violins, tin whistles, and delicate harmonies, the female Canadian folk trio “Sirens” will perform tonight at 7:30 at La Place Rendez-Vous.
Tickets cost $10, which can be purchased at the door.
Hailing from London, Ont., Donna Creighton, Amber Cunningham, and Jo-Ann Lawton compose and sing their own creations, which range from torch songs to lullabies.
They’ve been hailed as a powerful force in Canadian folk music, and have enthralled audiences at folk festivals and events such as the 2001 Canada Games.
In addition to performing, the trio also leads composition workshops, such as the one held at Fort Frances High School earlier today for aspiring young musicians.
Carole Mackintosh, whose daughter-in-law, Donna Creighton, is in the group, said she can’t wait for the concert.
“I think it’s going to be so energetic. They’re all hepped up for it,” she enthused this morning.
Fort Frances is just one stop of many on their tour, with “Sirens” also slated to appear in Winnipeg later this week.
“Every place they’ve been they’ve been booked for next year,” Mackintosh noted.
