Raine Hamil­ton vis­it­ing Swift Cur­rent, Kindersley

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Swift Current - CON­TRIB­UTED

The Or­ga­ni­za­tion of Saskatchew­an Arts Coun­cils (OSAC) along with its mem­ber Arts Coun­cils are proud to present Raine Hamil­ton in con­cert.

The per­for­mances are part of the 2018/2019 Stars for Saskatchew­an Con­cert se­ries.

Raine Hamil­ton is res­o­nant, acous­tic cham­ber folk with an oth­er­worldly edge, and a lyric pres­ence that cuts deep. Prism- clear vo­cals and strings; a com­bi­na­tion of vo­cal agility and power.

Raine’s new al­bum, Night Sky, tips be­tween the earthly and the oth­er­worldly; it is an­chored in re­lat­able lived ex­pe­ri­ence, while reach­ing into the space just be­yond, thin­ning the veil be­tween here and there, affording safe pas­sage to the rough and beau­ti­ful place. Raine’s ethe­real voice and lyrics are at the fore­front of these pow­er­ful and re­lat­able tunes, writ­ten both in English and in French. Along­side cello + dou­ble bass, and with Raine on vi­o­lin or gui­tar, these songs have a mov­ing string quar­tet feel with a cos­mic reach.

Raine is also a charm­ing and funny sto­ry­teller, pair­ing her vul­ner­a­ble tunes with en­gag­ing story in­tros. Raine be­lieves that mu­sic is for ev­ery­one, and that we all have some­thing to share. An ex­pe­ri­enced ed­u­ca­tor, Raine of­fers work­shops in song­writ­ing and fid­dle tune writ­ing (EN/FR). Raine also of­fers con­certs with Amer­i­can Sign Lan­guage (ASL) in­ter­pre­ta­tion, to help make live mu­sic and the com­mu­nity that comes with it ac­ces­si­ble to the Deaf com­mu­nity.

She will be in south­west Sask. in Oc­to­ber.

On Oct. 4, she will be at Kindersley's Nor­man Ritchie Com­mu­nity Cen­tre at 8 p.m. On Oct. 5 she will be at Swift Cur­rent's Event Cen­tre, Swift Cur­rent Arts Coun­cil at 7:30 p.m.
