Traveling Mabels Travel To Imperial Saturday Night

 mabels

The Travelling Mabels (Eva Levesque, Lana Floen and Suzanne Levesque) are a folk/ country female trio full of spirit, spunk and laughter. Collectively, their songs bring a wealth of life experience to the stage. Singularily, each woman can vocally stand alone, but once you hear the combined harmony blend, you will know why these three women came together. The beauty of the Mabels is that they represent three generations of women. This has opened the door to a dynamic energy both musically and in the rapport with the audiences that most wouldn't experience every day. Their musical influences range from Dolly Parton, The Eagles, Bob Dylan to Cheryl Crow, and their comedic, yet often heart-felt, take on life means they more than meet a wide range of audience expectations whenever they perform.

They will be playing a show in Imperial Saturday night (April 11) in support of the Imperial & District Service Club 

You can hear them on Saskatchewan Spotlight this Saturday and Sunday at 6pm on 800 CHAB.  Host Brandon Hall talked to Lana Floen, whose father, Harold Anhorn, is a member of the Imperial Service club, about their upcoming tour schedule

Here is a wonderful track from the latest album called "Cousin Mary"

 

Finding Al - A Documentary: Coming Soon!
