The Gilberts Nominated for 2021 CFMAs
Album Release: 'Tell Me'. Available Now
We are starting out 2021 by releasing the follow-up album to our Canadian Folk Music Awards nominated debut recording. ‘Tell Me’ is available here and on Bandcamp. Our album launch virtual concert is on our YouTube channel now. ‘Tell Me’ takes four songs from our debut recording 'The Gilberts: One' and gives them a fuller multi-tracked treatment. And, we have added more songs that we feel are among our best so far.
Hoping to see you, hear from you, and be heard by you in 2021!
Frieden, Reuben and Maisie
We are delighted to be nominees for the 2021 Canadian Folk Music Awards in the Young Performer(s) of the Year category. The nomination is for our debut recording 'The Gilberts: One' released in 2020. It is very much a Covid recording. We had planned to record our debut in a professional studio in March but pivoted to recording at home as the pandemic changed - well everything. We decided that our approach to the recording should be very simple and pared down. All songs recorded live off the floor on one day, in one take, with one mic, in one room. 'The Gilberts: One'.
The Gilberts bring soulful lyrics, memorable melodies and close three part harmonies to their original songs. The 2021 Canadian Folk Music Awards nominees are siblings Frieden, Reuben and Maisie. Influences include folk and contemporary folk, singer-songwriter, musical theatre and choral music. They have performed at Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival, Deep Roots, Full Circle, soft-seat theatres, weddings and celebrations, house parties, eateries, bars and many other venues.
