Fox Glove • Claire Butterfield, Renn Bibeau & Chelsea Kanstrup



Fox Glove EP Release with Noah Edwards
March 8th, doors at 7:30, show at 8
Fairfield United Church
$10, kids under 12 are free
Tickets can be purchased at the door or from band members

Fox Glove is an amalgamation of three very different female voices which come together to create a fresh, sophisticated sound. Renn Madeleine Bibeau, Claire Butterfield, and Chelsea Kanstrup's haunting yet enchanting harmonies whisper everything from Tennessee to Tottenham to Tofino. With the help of a suitcase filled with instruments they've accumulated on their separate journeys through life, this trio brings you a collection of folky originals, as well as their own unique twist on a selection of songs that you may or may not already know. 

If you would like a taste, here is the pre-release from the EP

P.S. Renn, Claire and Chelsea are three of our finest UVJAZZ alumnae!
Congratulations on the release and forthcoming gig!
