Item details


March 22, 2024 7:30PM


Join New Moon Folk Club for their double bill presentation of Raine Hamilton and AV and the Inner City on Friday, March 22 at St. Basil's Cultural Centre, 10819 71 Avenue NW. Doors open at 6:30PM, performance begins at 7:30PM.

Resonant, acoustic chamber folk with an otherworldly edge, and a lyric presence that cuts deep. Prism-clear vocals + strings. Anchored in the ancient mountains, reaching out beyond the earthly. Raine Hamilton is part prairie songstress, part storyweaver; Each song has a story, delivered between songs with humour and grace. Raine invites deep love of the violin into the singer-songwriter genre, writing for violin and voice, as well as for guitar and voice. Joined by cello and upright bass, expect string arrangements that push and pull, that move as they console.

Art is for everyone, music is for everyone. Raine often performs alongside an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter, making their concerts accessible to the Deaf community. Raine is great with kids; Ask them about their songwriting workshops.

SOUNDS LIKE: A string quartet + Sarah Harmer + Joni Mitchell
