Community Service together strike a collective chord. Lead singer Lianne Cranfield has been performing since age 9 and has performed thousands of solo shows. She trekked through NZ and Oz with a guitar on her back, and was nominated as the entertainment ambassador of her hometown, Hamilton, Ontario. When she moved to Whitehorse in 2012 she became a mother, so put aside her music for some time, suspecting that one day the right group would come together… at the right time. And they did: Community Service came together in Lianne’s living room on Sunday afternoons over the winter after her own mother’s passing. Described as “calmly enthralling”, several band members bring outstanding original work to the group. Tara Martin (Ladies of the Canyon) on drums, Scott Maynard (Rock Plaza Central) on keys, Dave Haddock (Working Dogs) on bass, Sam Gallagher (Jennihouse) on lap steel. Led by Lianne’s deeply touching voice, all members of the group bring their own exceptional voices, and as a collective in community service, something quite magical happens. In service of others and the synchronicity of living. RIP Mags. Let the music speak for itself. We rise again.
