Oh My Darling are looking forward to returning to Lethbridge. Photo by Richard AmeryWinnipeg based roots band Oh My Darling have been busy since their last appearance in Lethbridge last year.

“We’ve been touring and mostly demoing songs for our new CD,” shivered  fiddle player Rosalyn Dennett, taking a quick break from a surprisingly chilly photo shoot in Vancouver. They will be returning to Lethbridge to play the Prairie Folk Tournament, March 11 at the Slice with Shaela Miller Threesome and Rob Ursel.

“We’ll be playing quite a lot of the new material. It will be a good preview of the new music we’re making,” she said.

“And this festival is a new festival, so we’re looking forward to playing it,” she continued adding things  are only getting better for the band which only formed a few years ago in 2008.

“ Our (2009 debut self titled)  EP got nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award. We sold out of it, but people kept requesting it,  so we had to re-print it,” Dennett said adding that came as a surprise as they had already been writing for the new CD and released their debut CD last year.

“We feel we have a strong set of new material,” Dennett continued.

“We’re a bit more cohesive as a band and  there is more focus on collaboration between all of the members, she said adding rather than having one of the members writing a song and bringing it to the rest of the band to add their parts.

“Now it’s more of a band dynamic,” she continued adding while there isn’t more of a fiddle presence in the new music, she feels she has improved her playing.

“ Because we’re crafting the material more, I practice a lot. So I feel like I’ve improved my playing since we were here last time,” she continued, adding they will record the new record in April ,  play a lot of festivals and officially release the CD in the Fall.

“But we might have a few secret copies of it with us for the festival to sell off the stage,” she said.
