THE LIST FISH GRIWKOWSKY Acclaimed Halifax cellist Gailey in town for three very different appearance­s


Recently named one of CBC's 30 hot Canadian classical musicians under 20, Halifax-based contempora­ry/experiment­al cellist India Gailey is the beating heart of three events over the next few days.

Gailey's upcoming release, Problemati­ca, layers cello, voice and electronic­s with new music by composers Fjóla Evans, Nicole Lizée, Julia Mermelstei­n and others, including local musician Shea Iles. This last piece was commission­ed by the admirable culture-stimulator­s at New Music Edmonton, the organizati­on putting on these events.

Around town, the fun begins with a free workshop she's hosting for composers and performers in room 11-363 of Allard Hall at 11110 104 Ave., 11 a.m. Thursday.

The next stop turns it up a notch with an improvisat­ion concert where she'll be joined by magnetic spoken word poet Dwennimmen (Shima Aisha Robinson), artist Caitlin Sian Richards on viola and local British-born Nigerian drummer Biboye Onanuga.

This one happens at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Harcourt House, up on the third floor at 102015 112 St., tickets $20 at the door or at harcourtho­use.ca. And it's actually only $15 if you're a student, an elder or a member of NME.

Finally, Gailey presents cello and electronic works by Shea Iles, Fjóla Evans, Joseph Glaser, Thanya Iyer, Nicole Lizée, Julia Mermelstei­n, Andrew Noseworthy, Sarah Rossy, and, indeed, India Gailey. This is another free one, 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Betty Andrews Recital Hall at MacEwan University (11110 104 Ave.).
