The SPINNEY BROTHERS
Jun 4 @ 2:00 pm

The SPINNEY BROTHERS

They’ve been touring the world and are back to King’s Theatre by popular demand.  The Annapolis Valley’s own Spinney Brothers are famous for their tight brother duet vocal style & blistering fret work to create some of the hottest bluegrass around.

The cornerstone of the Spinney Brothers musical identity is the sound of traditional, southern-flavoured bluegrass music. The first generation bluegrass legends have been an important musical influence, yet their music is equally shaped by their personal lives and local heritage. By incorporating original material, which draws from various sources, the Spinney Brothers effortlessly intertwine the past with the present.

The Spinney Brothers believe in freshness and excitement of traditional bluegrass music. Brother duet singing, backed by supportive and complimentary instrumentation, is the foundation of their tasteful and recognizable sound.

_MG_9621Allan Spinney guitar & vocals

Born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, his family moved back home to the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. Allan now makes his home in Grand Pre, Nova Scotia with his wife Lynn & step daughters Lindsey(Jamie) & Jennie (grandson Ethan).  Raised in the midst of a musical family, it was country and bluegrass music that played the largest role in his musical up bringing. At a very early age, Allan demonstrated the desire to be a performer. Home recordings have documented his vocal abilities, as early as age six. Shortly after, he took a strong interest in the organ. It was in 1979 however, upon buying his first guitar, that he started down the road to performing on stage. He began studying the guitar works of Smiley Bates, as well as the sounds of Bill Monroe & Flatt & Scruggs. It was the vocal harmonies of the Stanley Brothers however, that really appealed to Allan. He strongly encouraged his brother Rick to explore the music as well.

In 1989, Allan co-founded his first bluegrass band with his brother Rick. The “Bluegrass Student Union” was comprised of Allan, Rick, and their good friend, Steve Jackson. This formation performed at various school functions, variety shows, and benefits. By 1991, Allan was ready to put together a full bluegrass Band. His dream was realized, in the creation of The Spinney Brothers Bluegrass Band. Through out various personal changes, four independent recordings, and years of live performances, Allan continues to craft the Spinney Brothers style of traditional bluegrass music.


 

 

_MG_9626Rick Spinney banjo & vocals

Born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, one year to the day of his brother Allan. As Rick likes to point out, “he was his brothers first birthday present”. Rick makes his home in Gaspereau, Nova Scotia, with his wife Machaela, son Kasey and his step-son Keegan. Compared to his brother, in his early school years, Rick did not spend as much time on music. Instead, Rick excelled in sports. First in soccer, and then in basketball. His dedication to team sports, found him on championship teams at numerous levels. It was with the persistence of his mother Wava, however, that Rick began examining his musical abilities.

In 1987, Rick obtained his first banjo. After some instruction from local musician Roy Thompson, and Canadian bluegrass great Vic Mullen, Rick was well on his way. Along with his brother, Rick began to study traditional bluegrass music. As a banjo player, the music of Earl Scruggs was very influential. Vocally, Rick and his brother worked on their own style of “brother duet” vocals. With the creation of the Spinney Brothers Bluegrass Band in 1991, Rick has continued to work tirelessly, in shaping the sound and image of the Spinney Bothers music. Rick is the main spokesman for the Band. As well, he handles bookings and promotions.


 

 

_MG_9616Gary Dalrymple mandolin

Gary Dalrymple was born in Halifax, the capital of Nova Scotia. Gary, like Allan and Rick, grew up in a musical family. Gary makes his home in Debert, Nova Scotia with his wife Jackie. His father, Carl was a local Country and Bluegrass musician. Gary was exposed at an early age to the recordings of Country and Bluegrass greats like, Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Flatt and Scruggs, and Reno and Smiley to name a few. Gary began attending Bluegrass festivals with his family and soon had an uncontrollable urge to play an instrument. He thought that he would play the 5-string banjo, but intuition steered him toward the mandolin. He bought his first mandolin in March of 1984, it was a “Newfeld” mandolin.

He was encouraged by local musicians at festivals to keep it up, and with the early inspiration of the pioneers of Bluegrass music, he strived to develop his style of Traditional Bluegrass. It was the drones and double stops of Benny Martin and Paul Warren, whom all played with Flatt and Scruggs, that caught his attention. Their style of fiddle convinced Gary that this music was extra special, and Gary decided to take up playing the fiddle as well.

Gary played with several local bands until 1993, when he joined the Spinney Brothers. With his southern bow on the fiddle and lonesome tremolo on his Gilchrist mandolin, Gary adds the final ingredient necessary for Genuine Acoustic Bluegrass Music.

XARA CHORAL THEATRE – The Hours Turn to Nothing
Jun 10 @ 7:30 pm

XARA CHORAL THEATRE

The Hours Turn to Nothing

Canada’s Premier Choral Theatre Ensemble returns to King’s Theatre!

Named the top women’s choir in the country in 2013 by the National Choral Competition.

 

Nationally acclaimed women’s vocal ensemble Xara Choral Theatre and renowned author Ami McKay are joining forces in the creation of an inter-disciplinary performance called The Hours Turn to Nothing. The show will tell the stories of midwives and nurses in the aftermath of the 1917 Halifax Explosion.

The historic blast is being commemorated across Nova Scotia throughout this centenary year. It killed 2,000 people and seriously injured another 9,000. Amid the many stories of death, ruin, and injury, it is lesser know that most pregnant women living within range of the explosion went into spontaneous labour from the force of the explosion, regardless of the gestational age of their unborn children. Midwives from across Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Northeastern USA boarded trains within hours of hearing the news knowing that their unique skills would be needed.

The Hours Turn to Nothing is now in production and is based on years of research undertaken by McKay when she wrote her award-winning novel, The Birth House. The show is set to premiere with three performances in Halifax on April 28-29 before touring the Maritime provinces. Featuring 24 singers, the work is shaped by seven ethereal choral pieces and several improvised soundscapes. It also includes text written by McKay and will be staged using expressive movement, costumes, and lighting. The choral repertoire includes two world premieres by Canadian composers Don Macdonald and Jenny Trites.

This ground-breaking artistic collaboration is being supported by the municipality of Halifax, Arts Nova Scotia, the Canada Council for the Arts, and the 150 Forward Fund.

MARITIME CONCERT OPERA – Rigoletto
Jun 22 @ 7:30 pm
MARITIME CONCERT OPERA - Rigoletto

Maritime Concert Opera brings us Giuseppe Verdi’s great tragedy, Rigoletto.

A curse follows the court jester Rigoletto, whose attempts to keep his precious daughter Gilda out of the hands of the lecherous Duke of Mantua bring tragedy.

Sung in Italian with projected English translations.

The cast features baritone Andrew Tees as Rigoletto, coloratura soprano Suzanne Rigden as Gilda, tenor Jason Davis as the Duke of Mantua and Lunenburg mezzo soprano Nina Scott-Stoddart as Maddalena.

 

Maritime Concert Opera is a semi-professional regional opera company based in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada which brings in-concert performances of great operas to many communities in Nova Scotia. While we use professional soloists, our chorus and ethos are rooted firmly in our communities.

Suzanne Rigden

Canadian soprano Suzanne Rigden is establishing herself on the International stage with her “remarkable gift for stratospheric coloratura” and “comic genius”, as evidenced in her “dazzling” performance in the Quarter-Finals of the Montreal International Voice Competition 2015 and her summer recitals as a Tanglewood Music Fellow. She recently “stole the stage” in the role of Adele in DIE FLEDERMAUS with Vancouver Opera, where Opera Canada said “Suzanne Rigden brought an agile and graceful coloratura as well as an impish coquettishness to the role of Adele and played her as a delightfully shrewd and feisty survivor to win huge audience empathy and applause at curtain.” Opera World described “her effervescent approach and her strong and confident singing of the most difficult coloratura parts.”

Ariana Nasr, Sahara Nasr, Kamila Nasr and Ken Shorley

We are thrilled to have Ariana Nasr return to the King’s Theatre stage after lifting the lid off with her Piaf Show.

The three sisters have devoted many years to studying and performing music in different parts of the world including India, Afghanistan, China, Europe and Brazil… The word ASHK, means “love” in Turkish and “tear” in Persian. As the band performs in multiple languages and styles, playing a variety of instruments, ASHK creates a show that reflects their travels, studies and musical passions.

The sisters have teamed up with world percussionist Ken Shorley to take the audience on an international tour. Ariana brings us to France, Eastern Europe and beyond, hearing the sounds of Edith Piaf, the Roma, and the Balkans. Sahara explores the music of India and Persia, sharing Sufi poetry of Rumi in her own compositions. Kamila brings us to Portugal through Fado, to Brazil with hip hop and treats us to original Afghan-Celtic fusion. The versatile Ken Shorley will transport us to the Middle East, South Asia and Turkey as he flows effortlessly among instruments and styles.

ASHK’s performance is powerful as they sing most selections with three or four part harmonies and perform with an impressive array of both eastern and western instruments.  This is a show not to miss.

We are excited to welcome Los Primos back to King’s Theatre!

Los Primos 2017 Summer Tour will feature Jeff Goodspeed, Augusto Enriquez, and three of the most promising and inspired young musicians from Havana, Cuba.

 

The Los Primos Project has been contributing to the education of an entire generation of musicians. Started in 1997 to help music education in Cuba deal with instrument shortages, and to inspire our young Nova Scotia musicians by giving them the opportunity to perform with Cuban music students and professionals.

In celebration of this 20 year milestone, Los Primos artistic director Jeff Goodspeed and international Cuban recording artist Augusto Enriquez, will lead Los Primos 2017 in a series of performances and Cuban music clinics through out Nova Scotia. Los Primos has raised over $500,000 for music education in Nova Scotia and delivered 700 instruments to musicians and schools in Cuba.

Los Primos 2017 will feature three of the most promising and inspired young musicians from Havana who have ever been part of this unique cultural exchange project.

 

Alison Enríquez is now studying grade 10 in Halifax on scholarship to the Armbrae Academy. She is playing in the Nova Scotia Youth Orchestra, appearing every Sunday at Stayners Sunday Jazz and performing solo and in small ensembles throughout the province. Not only is she a gifted violinist but she sings with the maturity and freedom of a seasoned professional.

 

 

Ahmed Alom is back in Havana after studying for 3 years in the most famous music school of Mexico City. He has now been accepted on full scholarship to the Manhattan School of music and will begin there this fall. He has won numerous international classical piano competitions but is also recognized in Havana as one of the very best latin jazz piano players they have produced.

 

 

 

Dayron Rodríguez started playing with professional bands in Havana when he was only 12 years old and has been doing it every since. He is the son of a cab driver and the first in his family to ever study music. He was a member of Los Primos 2012 and returned to Nova Scotia in 2014. He plays with the strength and sound of the master conga players for which Cuba is famous.

 

 

 

Los Primos 2017 will tour Nova Scotia performing at festivals and special events from July 4 to August 9. They will also be offering Cuban music clinics in Truro, Sydney and Halifax.

JENN GRANT
Jul 22 @ 7:30 pm

Juno-nominated singer-songwriter Jenn Grant’s voice and songwriting has been celebrated the world over by critics and industry alike.

Described as one of the ‘best singers in the world’ by her ongoing collaborator, Buck 65 (CA), “captivating’ by The Line Of Best Fit (UK), and “work of a painter born in paradise” by The Sydney Morning Herald (AU). 

 

She expands to a galactic realm never before explored by the songwriter with Paradise. While Grant’s 2014 JUNO twice nominated (Songwriter & Contemporary Album of the Year) Compostela, focused on Jenn’s own personal experience of loss, this time Grant points the compass towards the epic and intimate and explores a new depth of sound.

“I wanted to explore new soundscapes,” Grant explains when describing how piano came to be the primary song-writing instrument. Grant created new shapes and colours with an array of new instrumentation and song collaboration with producer Daniel Ledwell. “I thought about my singing much more. I feel like I am a completely different artist from when I began performing. I don’t feel like I really heard my own voice until recently. 

Paradise feels personal and emotive, but it was born from a vantage point of watching as the world flexes amidst great joy and sorrow. Through her lyrics, Grant tells us of the world she watches from a distance, touching on global themes like love, growth, faith, longing, sex, death and reinvention. 

With the International success of Compostela, Grant spent three years touring the world and playing to over 300 audiences, both festivals and in concert settings with sold out shows from London to Vancouver. Finally coming off the road, Grant retreated to the secluded studio by her home in Lake Echo, Nova Scotia. What emerged was Paradise- an album that sees a new dimension in Grant’s songwriting with new depths of sonic beauty and melodic landscapes, touching upon balladry, R&B and electronic music along the way.

Paradise’s songs reach out with world-weary awareness, that’s most evident on lead single “Galaxies,” a song that is the aural equivalent of star-gazing. “I pictured people standing at the edge of the earth, hands outstretched, asking, ‘What is bigger than us, than any of this?’” Grant says.
