Campbell and Miura on the move

Speaking of busy ladies, singer-songwriters Amy Campbell and Ana Miura are playing this Friday in Hell's Kitchen (doors 9pm, tickets $8, advance tickets available at Venus Envy). Amy Campbell is a Newfoundland native, and sometime Halifax resident, before she re-located to Ontario. She played with folk rock outfit Stumble, and later co-founded the artist collective and event production company BattleAxe Folk. If we are lucky, Campbell will play some new songs from her upcoming (September 2008) double length CD and book (!) called "Oh Heart, Oh Highway." Touring with her is Ottawa artist Ana Miura, voted Ottawa's Best Singer/Songwriter in the Ottawa Xpress. Ana's debut album, Tenacious Heart, features the single "He Swallows Whiskey," winner of the 2006 Songs from the Heart Galaxie Rising Star Award. She is the founder of Babes For Breasts, an organization of singer songwriters who tour the country raising funds for Canadian Breast Cancer organizations. Good work finding the time to tour, you two.
