Wednesday, April 26, 2017, at 8 pm, $10. Singer-songwriters Karen Morand, from Windsor, and Gina Horswood, on tour from Australia, are coming to Artword Artbar on their Ontario tour.

Their original songs echo dusty roads, dark bars and creaking church pews. A night of gritty gospel and earthy blues will be sure to leave ya with a satisfied soul.
