David Newland CD Release
Advance $25.00 / Door: $30.00 *
Featuring Inuit cultural performers Siqinuip Qilauta (Sunsdrum)
David Newland is a writer, musician and adventurer, and a familiar face at Hugh’s Room Live, as the longtime host and performer of the Gordon Lightfoot celebration The Way We Feel and many, many other events.
David’s musical presentation, Northbound: The Northwest Passage in Story and Song has been selling out venues across Canada for 3 years. The show has been recorded as a live album and David will be releasing the CD on this special night.
The Northbound! CD release will include stunning photos, video and original songs from David’s Arctic adventures. He’ll be joined by his band, Uncharted Waters (Saskia Tomkins, Sam Allison, Steafan Hannigan and Oisin Hannigan), featured performers, Siqiniup Qilauta—Sunsdrum, and special guests including Kirsten Jones, Alex Cheung, and more to perform Northbound in its entirety!
In November of 2015, David was named a Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, a distinction that reflects a lifelong engagement with landscape and story. David Newland’s last album, Give It A Whirl, (launched at Hugh’s Room in 2012) has been played on CBC and on roots radio shows from coast to coast.
It’s an honour to help launch David Newland’s latest record and hope that the entire city can join in us in celebrating its release.
