Tanya Davis at the Trailside tonight
Poet, writer, singer of songs and candid performer Tanya Davis will be playing the Trailside Music Cafe & Inn in Mount Stewart tonight with Stewart Legere opening the show.
Since bursting onto the Halifax music and arts scene in 2006, Davis has garnered praise from industry, audience, and peers alike, all the while building an impressive and eclectic resume of artistic work and accomplishments.
With three albums, two books, numerous collaborations, and countless performances, she has stepped across genre and back again, forging new ground in the realm of creative possibility. Her videopoem, “How to be Alone” – a collaboration with filmmaker Andrea Dorfman – has had more than six million hits on youtube, attracting international media and blogger attention, a publishing deal with Harper Collins, and new fans the world over.
She tours regularly as a performance poet, musician and public speaker and was the 2011/12 Halifax poet laureate.
“If you’ve never seen a Tanya Davis show then treat yourself to one amazing experience” says owner Meghann Deighan. “Her live show is one of a kind and very intimate.”
Tickets for the 8 p.m. show are available at www.trailside.ca. Back Alley Music or call 902394-3626 for reservations.
