Mark Fossen

Alt-folk singer-songwriter Mark Fossen busked in British Columbia, lived in Ottawa then moved to Antigonish, Nova Scotia a little over a year ago. He came back to Ottawa to record his latest album, Restless, with Jim Bryson. Now he's back coming through again to share this beautiful album with us! Come get in on the best kept, not-so-secret secret that is Mark Fossen!

Mark Fossen covers Forever Young

Rachel Beck

"A big sound from a little island."
-Raina Douris, Mornings on CBC Music

"But even in heartbreak, Beck’s voice is strong, reassuring. It’s what ties together her piano-pop melodies, a call in the dark that provides a safe place to land."
-Holly Gordon, CBC Music

You see all those CBC quotes about PEI's Rachel Beck? They might have something to do with the fact that the first single, Reckless Heart, on her debut self-titled album hit #1 on the CBC Music Top 20 after having the most online votes for 6 weeks straight.

“Here's the voice we need on those days when nothing's right and everything sucks and people are lousy. Rachel Beck's compassion and heart shine through each song, a little musical healing for us all. Gentle, made mostly from piano, strings and voice, the power's in the humanity and understanding she puts in her songs.”
– Bob Mersereau, Top 100 Canadian

Georgian Bay, the duo of Kelly Lefaive & Joëlle Westman, come to Ottawa with music that forms the second half of their double album release, Courage – called Moon.

The name Georgian Bay holds in it a sense of the ties that bind Kelly and Joëlle, the memories that connect them, and the peace that sustains them. It’s an area rich with history, timeless legends, and natural beauty. This is where Kelly grew up and where her family still lives. This is where Joëlle’s maternal side of the family tilled the land as farmers for many generations. No matter what hardships life may hold for them, no matter how heavy their hearts may grow, all they have to do is visit the shores of Georgian Bay to feel at peace again. They bring their peaceful joy to Lotties for the evening.


Escorted by a banjo and a parlour guitar, Ottawa’s Moonfruits’ soaring harmonies captivate listeners and celebrate common ground. Partners on and off stage, Alex Millaire & Kaitlin Milroy summon music from a place where ideals and imagination intertwine.

Best heard in an intimate listening room, “Moonfruits move together in a playful exchange, constantly in each other’s pocket, voices wound around each other, creating an almost singular entity in their sound.” — Terry Steeves, Apt613

Silent Winters Sept. 15th

When I heard the May 2017 first album from Silent Winters, Fireworks & A Small Brigade, I was immediately drawn in. I knew I wanted to hear them sharing this music live. I reached out and was disappointed to hear they considered it a "studio project", not for live performance.

More than a year later, I'm delighted to welcome you to Lottie's for an intimate house concert with Silent Winters.

Saturday, September 15th
Gathering at 7 pm
Music begins at 7:30 pm

Olenka Bastian and Jonathan Chandler are Silent Winters, an Ottawa folk duo with a warm, intimate repertoire born of cold months and fireside contemplation. Channeling a musical chemistry perfected while harmonizing as lead singers in rock outfit Amos the Transparent, Olenka and Jonathan craft pared-down, acoustic compositions supporting pure vocals and heart-melting lyrics.

Silent Winters claims its creative heritage in such acts as Simon & Garfunkel, The Milk Carton Kids and The Civil Wars, while treading fresh musical tracks with crystal-clear harmonies and tender, poetic storytelling. They were 2017 Canadian Folk Music Award nominees for Ensemble of the Year and Emerging Artist of the Year.

Olenka and Jonathan are currently in studio recording their next album, set to release in January 2019. They will step away from the studio for this special evening. Come join us!!
