The Kelowna Folk Club is very pleased to present Awna Teixeira of Po’ Girl as our final concert of the season. According to, “Teixeira’s voice is a delightfully gentle instrument; like the elfin sister of Emmylou Harris and Stevie Nicks”. She is best known as being one quarter of Roots stars Po’ Girl who have toured the world many times in the last 8 years winning fans and accolades at every stop. She is also garnering much critical praise for her solo album Where the Darkness Goes. .Awna has recently embarked on her first ever solo tour and we are privileged to be included here in Kelowna. She has stops in Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah before returning to Canada.

Maiya Robbie of Long Story Short will be joining the tour as Awna’s special guest in Kelowna. Wordsmith Shane Koyczan and the Long Story Short, who tour and record together, were recent finalists in CBC’s Searchlight competition. Singer/songwriter Mayia has also produced some solo work, most recently last year’s EP Should’ve Been a Mountain. Don’t miss this last Kelowna Folk Club concert of the season.
