Published Jan 19, 2011Olenka Krakus, voice of the London, ON country/folk group Olenka & the Autumn Lovers, is getting set for a solo tour across the East Coast, with stops in Sackville, Charlottetown, Moncton, Halifax and Fredericton.
"I can't seem to get enough of the East Coast, even in the midst of winter," Krakus said in a statement. "It'll be nice to reconnect with many of the lovely people who are so characteristically hospitable every time we make our way through the region."
Olenka & the Autumn Lovers recently came off a tour to promote their sophomore album, And Now We Sing, released this past September. The record got its fair share of attention thanks to the group's approach of melding traditional Eastern European folk with North American country, both lyrically and melodically.
