29 // Moonfruits Bring Their Imaginary Town Into The Real World

This week, Ottawa-based art-folk bilangue superforce Moonfruits! These must-see performers chat about high school peer Leif Vollebekk encouraging their early songwriting, fostering empathy through characters, and what it means to let an imaginary town speak for itself. We listen to a song from that town (Ste. Quequepart, translated as “Saint Somewhere”), and delve into how this town can help facilitate kitchen table conversations around income inequality and other vital social issues. Alex also gets heated on what could become new podcast, “classically speaking.” Check out Moonfruits’ latest work & upcoming tour dates in Ontario at moonfruits.ca and remember: “there are no wrong notes – it just matters what comes after them.”
