As you work through your Christmas list or think about ways to brighten up long winter evenings for yourself and your music-loving friends….consider getting tickets to a couple of our 2020 house concerts. Experiences make beautiful gifts and they do not require complicated wrapping or a trip to the mall. We have an amazing and varied array of artists coming round over the next few months…..
First up: Quote the Raven a folk duo from Newfoundland who just landed nominations for Group of the Year and Songwriter of the Year for the Music NL Awards 2019.
Saturday, January 18 @ 8 pm. Tickets
Quote The Raven pairs powerhouse vocalist Jordan Coaker and haunting songstress Kirsten Rodden-Clarke. They made an immediate and emphatic statement with their long-awaited debut album, Golden Hour. Produced by Chris Kirby and featuring several high caliber songwriting collaborators (including Gabrielle Papillon, Ian Janes, Charlie A’Court, Keith Mullins) Golden Hour launched this pair firmly in among the artists one needs to watch.
Jordan and Kirsten delighted everyone who attended their first show at Patchwork in early 2019. They are back in these parts to record some new songs so we thought we should invite them back to get a sneak peak at their latest artistic endeavors and see what a year of performing around Canada has done for their live shows.
A blazing spitfire guitarist, Dan Doiron fuses inventive guitar riffs and grooves with unique lyrics that reflect on every day life. After many years as a sideman, in 2011 Dan stepped out as a solo recording artist, earning both East Coast Music Award and Music Nova Scotia nominations for his debut CD. In May, 2918 he released his fourth album Livin’ Centre Stage which also garnered Music Nova Scotia Award nominations.
A little further down the road……we are finalizing details for shows with Kim Harris, Christina Martin and Lynne Hanson: three powerful women with three powerful voices. I will be setting up links to ticket sales (see tab “Upcoming”) over the next few days.
All events are BYOB. Snacks offered. Shareable snacks welcome. Bringing music-loving-friends encouraged.
