Union Duke at King’s The­atre July 14

Toronto folk quin­tet Union Duke brings its ex­plo­sive live show to King’s The­atre July 14 for a 7:30 p.m. p show.

Sweat flies and floor­boards trem­ble, they say about their live per­for­mances.

“Bridg­ing soul­ful indie rock with blue­grass and coun­try, the group belts out soar­ing har­monies with three, four and even five voices,” says on­line ku­dos. “The songs are ir­re­sistible, the per­fect fit for the heat­wave of the dance hall or the cool breeze of the park.”

These five guys have been mak­ing a com­mo­tion in one way or an­other since they were kids, and years of mak­ing mu­sic to­gether have brought them to this: a heart­break of twang and a boot shake of rock and roll. Union Duke is two fifths city, two fifths coun­try, and one fifth whiskey.

Pierre La­pointe com­ing to Wolfville

The Aca­dia Per­form­ing Art Se­ries will bring one of Que­bec’s stars to Wolfville in early 2019.

Pierre La­pointe is not only a star in Que­bec where his work has won 18 Prix Félix (Québec’s Juno Awards), but also a crit­i­cally-ac­claimed Artist in France, where twice he re­ceived the Prix de l’Académie Charles Cros, the most pres­ti­gious mu­sic prize in the fran­co­phone world. Clearly, there is a lin­eage from Brel to Gains­bourg to La­pointe.

In Wolfville, on Jan. 20, 2019, La­pointe will present the songs from his most re­cent record­ing, La Sci­ence Du Coeur, a post-mod­ern ex­plo­ration of the af­fairs of the heart, an am­bi­tious com­bi­na­tion of French chan­son, con­tem­po­rary and or­ches­tral mu­sic. His songs will be given a more in­ti­mate “musique de cham­bre” treat­ment in Wolfville as La­pointe will be joined by renowned clas­si­cal mu­si­cians Philip Chiu on piano and Cameron Croz­man on cello.

The con­cert is be­ing of­fered free to Per­form­ing Arts Se­ries sub­scribers, with a to­tal of nine shows planned for next sea­son.

For full de­tails on the 2018-19 Per­form­ing Arts Se­ries, visit pas. aca­diau.ca.
