Dirty Dishes to entertain at Beatty House

Great musicians coming to Beatty House

Imagine the Andrew Sisters and the Stanley Brothers having triplets…the result would be none other than the Dirty Dishes, sharp-witted ladies with a 1950’s Nashville sound and killer charm. With infectious smiles, big personalities, cowboy boots and crinolines, this feisty female trio could have stepped right out of 1960’s Nashville, and they’re coming to the Beatty House on Friday February 2nd at 7:30 pm.

Featuring Suzy Wilde, Lisa Olafson and Alison Porter, the Dishes have spent the last five years breaking hearts and soothing souls at clubs, fairs, festivals and events throughout Canada. They bring a shine to every space they fill with their beautiful roots blend of folk, country, bluegrass & gospel sounds, playing a tasty blend of classic covers (From Dolly Parton to Joel Plaskett) to shiny new original songs. Their latest album “And Stay Out” was a hit with country/roots audiences last year, charting on college radio and receiving extensive airplay from CBC.

In a telephone interview, Lisa’s exuberance bubbled through the line. The trio met in Toronto through a shared interest in acting and performing. Lisa was originally from Red Deer and was steeped in country music; vocals, guitar, and ukulele are her musical talents. She’s a mother of two, a cracker of smiles and can “pour out a smoky ballad like real maple syrup on a velvet spoon”.

Ali’s not your timid little twirl on the floor: this Peterborough, Ontario gal loves a good lyric, a sweet fiddle lick and comfortable pair of rubber boots. She’s got a thrill for giggling and a love of the endorphin rush you get from great three-part-harmonies. Originally classically trained, Ali has gravitated to music with a celtic, folkie flair.

And finally we have Suzy. Quick and witty, with a love for jazzy cabaret style, Suzy loves a laugh. She’s a versatile singer, songwriter and musician raised in a very musical family. Wilde has written for pop, country, Jazz and musical theatre, and has even launched a musical at the Toronto Fringe Festival. She may hail from the big city, but this little Dish is a washboard- scratchin, guitar pickin’ cowgirl who loves to kick up the party with a good old-fashioned boot-stomper. Don’t let her fool you with her innocent smile and her sweet sounding harmonies- she’s got enough sass to start a dirty rumble in an old saloon. “Did somebody say moonshine?”

More than music, the Dishes were born to entertain – perfect for a wintery Friday night. We think you’ll love their hard-working attitude. From house parties to city squares to opening for Canadian superstars, these ladies always cause a ruckus!
