Raine Hamilton at Harbourfront Theatre
Raine is part prairie songstress, part story weaver; Each song has a story, delivered between songs with humour and grace. Raine invites their 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.
A classical violinist and musicologist by training, Raine and their string trio offer string-quartet-like arrangements of Raine’s original songs. They call this chamber-folk, a hybrid of the classical tradition of string quartet chamber music, with the singer-songwriter folk that comes so organically to Raine.
Raine believes that music is for everyone and that we all have something to share. In this concert, Raine offers an interpreter with American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation, to help make live music and the community that comes with it more accessible to the Deaf community.
