Hardware Girls headed Chemainus for show

Chemainus City Limits (formerly Music in the Hall) showcases the Hardware Girls at St. Michael’s Church Hall on Saturday

Chemainus City Limits (formerly Music in the Hall) showcases the Hardware Girls at St. Michael’s Church Hall on Saturday, Feb. 6, starting at 7 p.m.

They really are in hardware; their store is just up a ways on Chemainus Road and their pedigree as a family of singers and songwriters is deep.

This folk pop trio sing from the heart, adding a dash of country, a bit of roots and a little rock and roll to the tasty mix.

After years spent playing in and around the Cowichan Valley, the Hardware Girls met Canadian song writing legend Ray Materick at an event at the Duncan Showroom and once he’d heard their songs, he was immediately intrigued and offered his services as a producer for a first album.

Recorded at Ladysmith at Risque Disque Records, Dance Up the Power is everything sisters Jessica and Jade and mom Barb had hoped their album could be.

In song they hope to encourage listeners to join them to Bless This Place, Dance Up the Power or even to sing a Song of Hope.

Admission at the door is $10. Refreshments are available.
