Raine Hamilton visiting Swift Current, Kindersley
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.
