Raine Hamilton with Brett Nelson – June 8th

Resonant, acoustic folk with an other-worldly edge, and a lyric presence that cuts deep. Prism-clear vocals + strings; A combination of vocal agility and power.

Raine is part prairie songstress, part storyweaver; Each song has a story, delivered between songs with humour and grace. Expect to laugh, expect to cry. Also, she’s probably shorter than you’re imagining, so expect that, too.

Raine invites her love of the violin into the singer-songwriter genre, writing for violin and voice, as well as for guitar and voice. Joined by cello and upright bass, expect string arrangements that push and pull, that move as they console.

Reviewers describe Raine’s music as “simultaneously earnest and mature” (Daniel Emberg, Stylus Magazine), “complimented by menacing strings anRaine has an established history of live shows, including performances for the Governor General of Canada, West End Cultural Centre, Edge of the World Festival (Haida Gwaii BC), Home County Festival (ON), Festival du voyageur, Rainbow Trout, Fire and Water, Harvest Sun, Matlock, Anola Little Music Festival, and the Shine on Festival of Music and Arts. d balanced out by Hamilton’s sugary vocals”  (Nicholas Friesen, The Uniter).

 

Music starts around 7:30. No Cover but please donate directly to the artist.

Larissa Tandy – May 5th

Larissa Tandy was recently named as one of Australia’s top ten emerging songwriters.  Her instinctive, muscular songwriting and unrestrained performances are fast becoming her hallmarks, and she writes songs that communicate a sense of time and place, and invite the listener into the world of the song. Her most recent single, “shut down”, was picked up by radio in Australia, the US and the UK, and recommended by Canada’s CBC in their regular “songs you need to hear” feature. Between staking a claim on red carpets as a film composer for hire, Larissa has been hard at work in the studio with Jim Bryson recording her debut LP. The album, due for release mid 2016, showcases the songs and sounds that set her apart: potent stories, and a surprising, yet effortless blend of Southern Rock, 90s alternative, vintage gospel and country soul.

 

Music starts around 7:30. No Cover but please donate directly to the artist.

Feb. 15th – West My Friend – Live Music

Described as everything from indie-roots to chamber-folk, West My Friend has an acoustic blend of instruments and four-part harmonies that challenges the conventions of popular music. The band features pure and thrillingly elastic vocals with catchy arrangements of bass, guitar, mandolin, and accordion that draw from jazz, classical, folk, and pop influences. Inspired by artists such as Owen Pallett, Joanna Newsom, Bright Eyes, The Decemberists, and the Punch Brothers, and forged from a sonically adventurous acoustic music scene on Canada’s west coast, West My Friend is proving to be a key part of a new generation of grassroots folk music.
