The Mittenstrings and friends

The Mittenstrings and friends


The long-awaited and much-anticipated launch of the mittenstrings sitcom DVD and CD of original songs is now upon us. It’s all about a ‘fictional’ band The Mittenstrings and some of their ‘fictional’ musical friends trying to ‘make it.’ But it’s real people doing the music and they’ll be playing live at the launch after premiering the sitcom’s 8 short episodes in what could only be described as ‘inanimation.’

Lily Lanken spearheaded this audio-visual project. She made all the little foamcore characters and the sets herself, writing most of the songs, while others were co-written with bro Sylvan who also helped her write and shoot and sing, play and record. Friends Jasmine Bleile, Emilie Marzinatto, Toby Harper, Kathleen Weldon and Jordan Smith all contributed material. Neale Mcdavitt-Van Fleet did the editing. Lily was aided by Jeunes Volontaires of Montréal, Québec. Jean-Pierre Fretz provided the guidance. Kate, her fleet of cars and much more. Cousin Martha took them on the road with her in Europe this past October where she invited them to sing in her set. Many thanks to all.

There will be a limited number of the Mittenstrings DVD/CD for sale on the 16th.

Joelz is on strings with the Mittens, Lewis on drums.

See you there.

Vieille mitaine.
