Folk Duo Dala Set To Release New Album

Canadian folk duo Dala will release their new album, Everyone Is Someone, Tuesday, June 9. The duo, Amanda Walther and Sheila Carabine show off classic pop harmonies reminiscent of girl groups of yore on the albums lead single, "Levi Blues." Their vocals are a pretty fountain of melodies bubbling forth surrounded by an easy blend of acoustic folk pop.

Dala is on tour. They'll be all over Canada and the east coast of the US. Among their stops will be George Wein's Folk Festival 50 on August 2. They'll be in fine company too. Folk legend and festival co-founder Pete Seeger will be performing that day. Joan Baez, who along with Seeger, played the festival when it started 50 years ago will be there and so will Neko Case among many others.

Listen to the first single "Levi Blues" and "Alive" from Everyone Is Someone.
