West End Cultural Centre: Raine Hamilton String Trio, May 26
Raine Hamilton String Trio will be gracing the WECC stage with special guests The Eisenhauers on Friday, May 26th. ASL interpretation will be available. Tickets are $15 in advance.
Raine Hamilton presents resonant, acoustic folk with an other-worldly edge, and a lyric presence that cuts deep with prism-clear vocals + strings; a combination of vocal agility and power.
Raine is part prairie songstress, part storyweaver; Each song has a story, delivered between songs with humour and grace. Expect to laugh, expect to cry. Also, she's probably shorter than you're imagining, so expect that, too.
Raine invites her 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.
Reviewers describe Raine's music as "simultaneously earnest and mature" (Daniel Emberg, Stylus Magazine), "complimented by menacing strings and balanced out by Hamilton's sugary vocals" (Nicholas Friesen, The Uniter).
"I was stunned to hear something as clear and delicate as her voice ring out - commanding attention with its sensitive, open approach… with a rich musical history at play in her creation" (Eleni Armenakis, Gray Owl Point).
With help from our partners and sponsors Assiniboine Credit Union, Winnipeg Free Press, Winnipeg Arts Council, UMFM, The Government of Canada, and The Government of Manitoba.
