Balladeers Fricot and Ciseaux at Medici’s May 18

Oliver will be treated to not one but two performers at Medici’s on Friday May 18. These two solo artists have teamed up to bring a doubly good concert: Dominique Fricot and “Ciseaux”.

BC artist, Katie Schaan is Ciseaux. At the age of three she hit the stage with her tiny cello, and she hasn’t slowed down since. Ciseaux takes inspiration from classical music (she is an operatically trained singer), to soulful 60s folk, to the today’s indie singer-songwriters. She has evolved into a performer not limited by genre, and lends her svocal and instrumental talents to other artists. Her first album “Close To Me”, which was released under her own name, earned five nominations at the 2011 Vancouver Island Music Awards (Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year) and won Album of the Year.  (Info source:

After toiling in the trenches of the Vancouver music scene for the past decade, Dominique Fricot is finally starting to hit his stride. With his commanding stage presence, unrivaled songwriting skill and ear for creating pure pop masterpieces, Dominique owns the stage with his rich baritone and his emotive fusion of rock, soul, folk and jazz. His vocal stylings have been compared to Coldplay’s lead singer Chris Martin and Neil Diamond’.

HIs songs run the gamut from breezy pop to haunting piano ballads and perfectly encapsulate the highs and lows of falling in and losing love. Don’t miss his unique blend of charm, charisma, and relatable, heartfelt music. (Info source:
