Megan Bonnell Hits The Road With Great Lake Swimmers This Fall

Posted on Oct. 19 2016

Bonnell’s second full-length album, Magnolia, is a gorgeous, introspective collection of songs that demonstrate an artist at the top of her game – Exclaim

Singer-songwriter Megan Bonnell is getting ready to embark on a cross Canada tour this fall with Great Lake Swimmers. Hitting up five of the provinces, the tour will see Megan perform solo for crowds from Sudbury, Winnipeg, Calgary, Nelson, Saskatoon, and Sault Ste. Marie, to name a few. The tour kicks off this Monday, October 24th and to get her fans excited about the show Bonnell is delighted to release a stunning acoustic video performance of her song, Broken Hearted Avenue, featured off her current release Magnolia (Cadence Music).

“I love that this tour takes us winding around Lake Superior, across the prairies, and into the mountains. Everything seems to fit perfectly together on this run. The Great Lake Swimmers every night; in churches and small towns. I feel very lucky.”  Megan continues, “Fall is such a reflective time of year, and to witness the way it takes hold differently in each province, is really poetic to me. It makes me feel inspired to be playing each night under these wonderful circumstances.”

Setting up shop at Joshua Van Tassel‘s Dream Date Studio, Southern SoulsMitch Fillion steps behind the camera to capture an incredibly intimate take of Megan’s song, Broken Hearted Avenue. Van Tassel plays double duty both gracing the soundboard and the drum kit, along with fellow musicians Chris Stringer (guitar), Bret Higgins (bass), Michael Eckert (pedal steel), to create a stunning new version of the song.

Bonnell released her debut album Hunt And Chase in October 2013 on Nevado Records. She has toured Spain with John Grant, opened for Passenger at BIME Live festival (Bilbao, Spain) and performed at Barcelona Jazz Festival and The End festival (London, UK). She also did a full North American tour supporting Justin Nozuka, and has played at noteworthy summer festivals across North America such as Taste of Toronto, Field Trip Music Festival, CBC Music Festival and Gateway Festival. Earlier this year she shared the stage with Matt Corby at a SOLD OUT show in Toronto and joined Jordan Klassen on a spring tour.
