Raine Hamilton + Campbell Woods
Advance: $20.00 / Doors: $25.00
Raine’s new album, Night Sky (March 2018), tips between the earthly and the otherworldly; it is anchored in relatable lived experience, while reaching into the space just beyond, thinning the veil between here and there, affording safe passage to the rough and beautiful places.
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.
Raine 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.
Raine has toured Canada extensively, driving, flying, and floating her way coast to coast. Highlights include: Performing songs with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra (3 times!), playing a concert in a cave (10 stories below the earth!), playing festivals across Canada (Home County, Filberg Fest, Lilac Fest, The Works, Harvest Sun, Harvest Moon, Trout Forest), playing for her passage on Via Rail, and meeting so many amazing humans along the way. She reports a full and smiling heart <3.
Campbell Woods released his debut record, “Oxford Street” in the spring of April 2017. He’s been on the road ever since, performing everywhere from Vancouver to Halifax to Nashville to Austin. As a songwriter he’s been compared to Townes Van Zandt and John K. Sampson. Powerful songs, simply delivered. “Oxford Street” debuted at no. 4 on the Canadian folk radio charts and was nominated for a Toronto Independent Music Award.
The last two years have brought some exciting things: a new record, an opportunity to participate in the Banff Singer-Songwriter residency, music festivals from Halifax’s In The Dead of Winter to Vancouver Island’s Vancouver Island MusicFest, and ever more touring across Canada. Campbell is looking forward to releasing a new record in 2019, recorded in Montreal at the mythic hotel2tango.
“Campbell is one of the truest songwriters I’ve heard come out of Canada in a long time. His writing comes from the soul of an ancient spirit; he is a poet with a flair for haunting images. Campbell has done his homework when it comes to the craft of songwriting. His is a new, shining light!”
