A great way to break the winter blues with this afternoon concert! 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. The acoustics in Almonte's Old Town Hall will showcase this amazing trio.
Raine Hamilton 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.
American sign language interpretation by Tamyka Bullen, an ASL poetry performer with years of experience in theatre and concert interpretations.
