ABOUT THE SHOW
Canadian singer-songwriter Rachel Beck’s sophomore record, Stronger Than You Know, is an echoing cry-out from a forest, a chilling dance upon a grave, an arrow shooting straight to the heart of what is, a call to strength. Intimate and close, the six-track EP, recorded at Echo Lake (Halifax, NS), is sonically decorated amidst compelling electronic rhythms and dreamy synth layers. Beck’s vocals float across the vivid, harmony-laden, ethereal soundscape for which she has become known.
Chris Ronald’s “keenly luxuriant voice and immaculate songcraft” (The Georgia Straight) have won him many accolades including a nomination for “Songwriter of the Year” at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. Ronald emigrated from England to Canada in 2002, and his music has been described as Canadian folk with British roots. In live performance, Ronald draws on his abilities as an accomplished singer, storyteller, and multi-instrumentalist to deliver a captivating show. His latest and fifth album, Light and Dark, was released on esteemed Canadian label Borealis Records and reached top ten on the Folk Radio Chart.
