Fraser & Girard

Fraser & Girard

“The best folk duo mix since Ian and Sylvia” Bob Mersereau, CBC arts critic. Fraser & Girard possess a special magic. Lyrics that matter, rustic Americana-Roots inspired melodies, rich with sound and scuffed with traditional tone, this is a delight.

  • Allan Fraser’s signature song, “Dance Hall Girls” voted Top Ten Favourite Songs of All Time by NPR Radio.     
  • Marianne Girard – Canadian Folk Music Awards, Best Contemporary Singer 2009.     
  • Fraser & Girard “Best folk duo mix since Ian and Sylvia” Bob Mersereau, CBC arts critic.     
“The wonderful Allan Fraser finds a new partner in the remarkable Marianne Girard.” – No Depression: The Roots Music Authority.
These two highly regarded Canadian singer/songwriters crossed paths many times in their solo careers. Their storied pasts of life on the road, of raising families, of a deepening sense of beauty and art, weave a moral and artistic fabric that is indestructible. Their enduring strength moves audiences to laughter and to tears. Together, they offer an abundance of riches. Both have great songs. Both have what it takes to completely satisfy an audience. The resulting chemistry unfolds in spontaneous and unpredictable ways.
Their debut album, Fraser & Girard, produced by Paul Mills, was released in June 2015 and continues to generate inspired media response.
” … when the voices and talents match up, the results are spectacular.” Bob Mersereau, CBC arts.
