Our Shotgun Wedding
sat mar 9, 8pm
“Our Shotgun Wedding a duo with an infectious energy, clever, well-written songs and a ton of charisma. On festival workshops they are a great spark-plug who can kick start an onstage jam and make everybody feel welcome.” -James Keelaghan, Artistic Director, Summerfolk Music and Crafts Festival
Our Shotgun Wedding was conceived when singer/songwriter Dylan McMullin and multi-instrumentalist Lauren Jewell crossed paths on the dance floor at Summerfolk Music Festival in 2010. The couple have been making music together ever since.
Entertaining crowds with their infectious, folky jams and catchy hooks, they share their influences like John Prine, Ian & Sylvia, Bob Dylan and Gillian Welch.
Songs from both their E.P.’s “Ghost’s of the Bury Road” and “The Honeymoon Sessions” have been played on the CBC radio. Their most recent release, “Shackin’ Up” was recorded in a heritage Lake Huron cottage on the shores of Southampton.
Now married, Lauren and Dylan live in Owen Sound, Ontario and have a strong following in the Grey-Bruce. Their music is like a home-cooked meal; simple, satisfying and made with love.
