PETERBOROUGH — Darlings of the Canadian music scene, Dala Amanda Walther and Sheila Carabine — known as Dala — are best friends who met in a high school music class in 2002.

Since then the duo has released five albums and toured extensively across North America.

Dala brings its acoustic pop music and lush harmonies to New Hampshire for a 7:30 p.m. concert Saturday in Bass Hall, located inside The Monadnock Center for History and Culture, 19 Grove St.

Drawing upon influences like The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Bob Dylan, Dala writes catchy and insightful songs that showcase Walther’s ethereal soprano voice and Carabine’s velvety alto.

Dala has opened for Tom Cochrane, Stuart McLean of the CBC’s “Vinyl Cafe,” Richie Havens and Arlo Guthrie.

The pair also has performed at The New Orleans Jazz Festival, The Edmonton Folk Festival, California’s Strawberry Festival and Mariposa.

The duo’s projects includes 2009’s “Everyone is Someone,” with the song “Horses; the PBS special, live CD and DVD “Girls from the North Country” in 2010, woven around the music of Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Gordon Lightfoot; and 2012’s “Best Day.”

Tickets to the Peterborough Folk Music program are $20-$23.
