Free Pre Festival Party
On this March 2013 tour, you may find this unpredictable Fawn drinking Pirate Whiskey and swinging from chandeliers, as she sings you Nautical theme Sea Shanties on her Ukulele.
Lily Fawn's writing style is light-hearted, fanciful and funny, living up to the words of Canadian Vaudeville performer Eva Tanguay (1902), "It's all been done before, but not the way I do it".
Lily Fawn is one half of the award winning, unstoppable vaudeville-rock duo, Hank Pine and Lily Fawn, formed 2005, from Fantasy Island – Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Many have claimed that this drum poundin', saw playin', tap dancin', ukulele strumin', trumpet blowin' singer and song writer fell off the train to a traveling Circus Side Show from 1923 .
"Lily's Lullabies" (debut solo alum), released in 2011 by Northern Electric Vancouver Record Label, shows off Lily's earnest ability for storytelling.."Lily Fawn's little voice and style are uniquely hers as she delivers adorable helium-voiced songs on ukelele with charm to burn" (Montreal Gazette).
The Creaking Planks - “Novelty music for the humiliated… laughing gas for music geeks.”
The Creaking Planks strap on forgotten and dismissed instruments of simpler times, preemptively gathering the tunes and jingles of today from the ashbins of tomorrow and re-presenting them in a novel anachronistic setting and style. Together, their sum suggests nothing stranger than the iPod of 1906.
Joining us all the way from NYC the multi-talented Bettina May! - the girl the NY Daily News hailed as a “Jiggling Genius” when this Canadian Cutie was recently awarded the first ever US green card based on her extraordinary ability in burlesque, pin-up modeling and teaching - is coming to Vancouver!!!
