"The Boreal show was one of the highlights of our concert series for much of our audience. The trio’s fantastic harmonies and effortless delivery from the stage instantly connects them with the audience, transforming our concert hall into a cozy living room for the entire show. "

“Boreal connected with our audience right from the very first note and kept them engaged through the whole performance. Unique arrangements rejuvenated some traditional pieces while some standards provided opportunities for audience participation. The voices of Jude Vadala, Tannis Slimmon and Katherine Wheatley don’t only blend beautifully together in song, they also create a long lasting sense of community spirit!"
Elly Tose, Sleeping Giant Folk Music Society, Thunder Bay, Ontario

“…an incredible evening…a fantastic performance from Boreal, one I’m sure our audience will not forget for a very long time.”
Glenn McFarlane, Brampton Folk Club, Brampton, Ontario
“I can’t say enough good about them. We have hosted over 40 shows now, and I’ve become a good judge of how the audience reacts to the artists, and in all honesty, this was one of our best! They are incredibly talented and versatile musicians performing both original songs and covers, and present themselves in a very friendly, open and engaging manner.”
