A Piano-Ukulele Duo!
(Above) Julian Fauth and Maia Waern rehearsing in Maia’s music room.
(Below) Maia Waern had a dream that came true when good friend Julian Fauth invited her to play her songs at Sauce on Danforth…
A few months and many rehearsals later, they chose a name: Cotton Bags Band. It’s a name on their set list – one of Maia’s songs – Cotton Bags.
Cotton Bags Band’s public first concert was at the Senator Winebar in May 2018, seen below.
There’s even a video!
Playing at The Senator was so much fun that they’re doing it again at the end of winter – and at the beginning of spring – on Friday, March 22, 2019! (Reservations are strongly recommended.)
In the meantime, you can ‘sometimes’ catch Cotton Bags Band on Tuesdays – in the middle of Julian’s 6-9pm gig – at “Sauce on Danforth” (1376 Danforth Ave, between Greenwood and Coxwell). Come at 6pm to hear Julian’s uplifting solo set – ‘sometimes’ followed by a Cotton Bags Band mini set – and always followed by an uplifting blues jam with good-looking musicians whose talent at times feels sweetly too big for the room. It’s a truly enjoyable way to spend an evening – and the chairs are cushioned!
Here’s photo proof that Cotton Bags Band ‘sometimes’ plays at Sauce:
