A Hearty Winter's Welcome to BOREAL'S website. Thanks for visiting!

Jude Vadala, Tannis Slimmon and Katherine Wheatley tour together as "BOREAL" each November and December. That’s it. Fans scream for more, but their individual touring schedules just won’t allow. These three Guelph songstresses have dug up old and new songs written about the snowy season. Their ability to pick a great song, their love of beautiful lyrics, melodies and harmonies, their combined songwriting skills, their tour de force voices and the joy they feel singing with each other all make for an unforgettable event. Join them in November and December each year to welcome winter with their "Songs For The Snowy Season" Show. (concert details

Be sure to check out their CD "Winter's Welcome". With three angelic voices, glorious harmonies, and a collection of homespun winter-themed songs and holiday classics, Boreal's debut CD is the perfect antidote to a cold winter’s night.  And it makes a perfect gift!! Albums can be purchased all year round here!

Album and concert review are on the 'press' page.
