On a trip home home from Toronto last Sunday night we got chatting to Mallory Chipman and Freddi MacDougall, the duo who make up The Goddamsels.
Stuck with a long delay at Pearson International airport on the flight to Dublin we got chatting to the girls to discover they are about to set off on a tour of Ireland and England.
Though not playing locally in Meath they will play next Sunday,21ts Jan at Brubaker’s, at Park Street, Dundalk and Wednesday,17th Jan at The Vintage Inn, Irishtown, Dublin.
They have an interesting story to tell as two songwriters one living on Edmonton the other based in Montreal collaborating to put their songs together.
Here’s a little more about them if you are interested in going or would like to know more about their music;
Canadian alt-country duo, The Goddamsels, You will leave feeling like you’ve travelled to the heart of the Canadian prairies!
Based on their name alone, The Goddamsels aren’t your grandparents’ idea of country music. Formed out of the longstanding friendship between Alberta-based singer/songwriters Mallory Chipman and Freddi MacDougall, The Goddamsels write songs with strong, empowering messages, blended with elements of folk, pop and traditional country, all tied together by their stunning, instinctive harmonies. It’s all fully displayed on their six-song debut EP, Wayward Daughter (Royalty Records 2022), which explores classic country themes delivered with a modern edge, and has drawn them comparisons to acts like The Chicks, First Aid Kit, and Fleetwood Mac. The Goddamsels were nominated for the 2023 Roots Artist of the Year at the Country Music Alberta Awards, and recently completed a staggering 45-date tour across Canada. The Goddamsels are excited to be representing Canada at the Your Roots Are Showing showcase in Dundalk, Ireland in early 2024 ahead of their Ireland/UK tour supporting their new single, “Better Than”.
