The Pairs

2:00pm Sunday November 27, 2022


It is our very good fortune at this late date that we have been able to book The Pairs for November 27th in place of The Magpies. Twins Noelle & Renee Coughlin and best friend Hillary Watson have caused quite a stir in the alt-folk circuit with their amazing three-part harmonies powering infectious high energy performances. This promises to be an exciting musical experience. Our current information is that they will perform as a trio, without their percussionist Steve Plimmer.

Family is what ties The Pairs together. With soaring harmonies, they share stories of life’s hope, hilarity, and hardship. An honest, quirky stage presence and their unbottled chemistry, quickly connects them with their audience. The line between the stage and the crowd becomes blurred as if we’ve all pulled up a seat around their family’s lively kitchen table. Powered by three classically trained vocalists and a former punk rock drummer, The Pairs offer a unique blend of music that will hug your eardrums and inspire you to dance. Not to be missed.

Tickets are $25.00 plus service fees available until 11.59pm Nov. 26 through

If available, tickets will be for sale at the door for $28.00

The London, ON-based quartet formed in 2016, and in 2019, they seemingly unleashed their exuberant live performance on the summer music festival scene with their alt-folk-pop sound. They’ve been bursting onto stages in venues from Grand Bend to Montreal and sharing them with the likes of Ben Caplan, Harrow Fair, Sarah Smith, Madison Galloway and Pat Maloney. They’ve also been playing festivals. and, like a pinball wizard, they must’ve played them all! Having performed at Hillside, Home County, Sawdust City (now Muskoka Music Festival) Blue Skies, Kingsville, and CityFolk and at the Folk Music Ontario and Folk Alliance International conferences, all the while recording and releasing their debut full-length album, Noise, The Pairs had their busiest year to date in 2019. Their hard work and time on the road has clearly paid off, as it was recently announced that the band was awarded a coveted spot on the lineup for the 60th anniversary of Mariposa.
