Allison Crowe Tidings Concert
December 18, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Rejoice and reflect in music for the season and all time, “Tidings” with Allison Crowe. Spicing the on-stage magic, surprise musical guests drop-in for a spirited concert celebration Friday, December 18 at Corner Brook’s Rotary Arts Centre (5 Park Street, Lower Level of City Hall). Come join the fun.
Together with a timeless repertoire of yuletide favourites, from calm and bright, to rockin’ around the Christmas tree, Allison’s two new album releases in 2020, “Pillars” + “Six More Songs”, mean this holiday sleigh overflows with musical gifts.
“Allison Crowe’s resonant, rich, gorgeous voice seems as much a manifestation of Christmas as an instrument for singing holiday songs,” says the world’s most popular Leonard Cohen blogger. “Her voice celebrates the music with a bluesy rock-gospel intensity; her controlled vibrato, silken rasp, and powerful projection rivet your attention. This is no casual background music… be prepared to be amazed,” notes another reviewer.
“Tidings” blends traditional tunes, and not-so-traditional songs, be they folk, classical, rock, roots, or something entirely different, it’s a festive recipe for communication and community.
Take an emotional trip, an all-ages excursion – “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear”, “Silent Night”, “O Holy Night”, transported by carols and classics of the modern canon – Cohen and Joni Mitchell, The Beatles to Ryan’s Fancy – renewed by Allison+ on vocals, piano, guitar & more.
Come gather round, family and friends, to share “Tidings” of comfort and joy.
