LIZZY HOYT TRIO – “Ancient Carols for a Winter’s Night”
Dec 2 @ 7:30 pm

A CELTIC CHRISTMAS

From Winnipeg, Lizzy Hoyt is an award-winning songwriter who delivers music with soaring melodies that are rooted in Celtic and folk traditions. Not only does she have a gorgeous voice, but she’s a master of the fiddle, guitar, and harp… and she step dances too!  Her Christmas concert of ancient carols brings a Celtic flavour to the season.

Lizzy Hoyt is one of Canada’s most powerful Celtic-folk artists. Known for bringing Canadian history to life with  music, her songs like “Vimy Ridge”, “White Feather”, and “New Lady on the Prairie” have garnered awards and nominations while also connecting strongly with audiences across the country. In 2013, Lizzy was awarded the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal by the Governor General of Canada for her outstanding contribution to commemorating Canadian veterans and history through music.

A talented multi-instrumentalist, Lizzy toured for ten years as a side musician before pursuing her own projects. She has been praised for her mastery of the fiddle, guitar and harp by the Edmonton Journal, Calgary Herald, Penguin Eggs, Bluegrass Unlimited, Star News, and more. CBC’s Chris Della Torre calls her “a musician’s musician” and notes “fans that want their artists to play well can find that with [her]”. In addition to this praise, her voice has been described as “otherworldly”, “angelic”, “sweet”, and “pure” and as a singer, she has been recognized for her clarity and precision.

Lizzy is a full-time musician who travels and tours throughout Canada during the year with her trio. She has performed at renowned folk festivals (Edmonton Folk Festival, Montreal Folk Festival, Goderich Celtic Roots Festivals), folk clubs (Calgary Folk Club, Nickelodeon Folk Club, Northern Lights Folk Club) and through performing arts networks across the country. Throughout her career, she has released four independent albums and two music videos.

THE WIFE
Dec 4 @ 7:30 pm

Jonathan Pryce, Glenn Close, and Christian Slater star in Björn Runge’s adaptation of Meg Wolitzer’s bestselling novel about Joan Castleman (Close), who begins to re-evaluate her marriage to her author husband, Joe (Pryce), on the eve of his Nobel Prize presentation, and starts to grapple with her own long-dormant literary aspirations. An incisive study of celebrity, marriage, and the creative process — as well as a showcase for the talents of acclaimed actors Close and Pryce — The Wife explodes the old notion that behind every great man stands a great woman. Joe Castleman is being given the Nobel Prize for Literature, and he and wife Joan couldn’t be happier. But from the moment the couple arrives in Stockholm, tensions rise. A nosy, insistent would-be biographer (Slater) is loitering in the hotel lobby, an attractive young photographer opens old wounds regarding past indiscretions, and Joe and Joan’s son David (Max Irons), eternally irked at living in his father’s shadow, sulks through the celebrations.

The Wife is a procession of perfectly pitched scenes from a seemingly perfect marriage. Runge calibrates each for maximum impact, focusing on unspoken agreements and long-simmering resentments. His greatest allies in the endeavour are, of course, his stars. Pryce exudes pathos as a literary icon still suffering from insecurities, while Close smoulders in an intricately textured, quietly devastating performance.

COCO LOVE ALCORN – Choral Workshop
Dec 8 @ 2:00 pm
Soul-inspired singer-songwriter Coco Love Alcorn is one of the most charismatic, compelling and genuine performers you will experience. When she performs, a kind of magic happens. She has a capacity like no other to inspire and fill the space with a sense of joy. Her shows are an empowering and unforgettable experience.
**This concert at King’s Theatre will include an extraordinary opportunity for local singers to experience a workshop with Coco in the day, and then sing with her as part of her Mainstage show that night.  WORKSHOP WILL TAKE PLACE AT 2:00PM AT KING’S THEATRE. FREE WITH THE PURCHASE OF CONCERT TICKET!! See video below to get an idea what’s in store.
Contact the Box Office at 902-532-7704 to register.
Coco Love Alcorn has always followed her spirit, but never so literally as with her latest album, Wonderland. The songs spring from her personal journey, but true to her nature, Coco offers a universal interpretation that invites all listeners to jump in and sing along.During a 5 year break from heavy touring to raise her daughter Ellie, Coco began working on a new album. She wanted to explore songwriting from a new perspective. Coco was curious to see what would happen if she put down her guitar and wrote with just her voice. She began a journey of layering vocals and rhythms on a 5 track looper. In the fall of 2014 she released a video of herself performing one of these first looper layered songs, ‘The River’.

Everything I’ve ever done has led me to here. To Wonderland, a collection of songs that are an invitation to connect, an invitation to sing, and an invitation to myself to dig deeper than ever before.”  ~ Coco Love Alcorn

“Coco is the ultimate musical spark plug… an electrical connector through which the creative energy flows. In my 30 years of touring around the world, I have never seen another performer able to bring people together like Coco does.” – James Keelaghan – Artist Director, Summerfolk and renowned Canadian singer/ songwriter

She began a journey of layering vocals and rhythms on a 5 track looper. In the fall of 2014 she released a video of herself performing one of these first looper layered songs, ‘The River’.Something amazing and unexpected happened, the video started to spread across the internet and into the world of community choirs. These choirs started to learn Coco’s looper arrangement and perform The River in their own concerts. Coco has always loved group singing and encouraging anyone who wants to sing to do so, but this grassroots spread of ‘The River’ was a complete surprise. To date there are about 20 choirs singing ‘The River’ across Canada, the States and even in the UK.As this was happening, Coco was continuing to write and record the songs for this album. She also continued sharing songs online, performing them live and in turn let the listeners shape what this album became. As her new music was inspiring choirs to sing her songs, these choirs in turn were inspiring Coco. And as Coco traveled across Canada performing between recording and home time, these new songs became infused with the spirit of connection. Without choirs grabbing a hold of The River, and fans already connecting so deeply with her new material, this would have been a completely different album.Just like her career – which has spanned over 20 years, 10 albums, cross-canada tours, collaborations, festival appearances, award nominations and notable success in TV and film licensing – creating this album has been a journey. And it took someone with a spirit like Coco’s to navigate this path.”Throughout my career I have explored across many genres, collaborations and projects, taking a windy path to get to here. But I have loved every step of my journey and trusted my inner curiosity to take me where it wanted to go. I always thought my end game was to invent a new genre or create a brand new sound, to somehow mash it all elegantly together.Everything I’ve ever done has led me to here. To Wonderland, a collection of songs that are an invitation to connect, an invitation to sing, and an invitation to myself to dig deeper than ever before.”  ~ Coco Love Alcorn

JOHN GRACIE CHRISTMAS
Dec 15 @ 7:30 pm

We’re pleased to welcome Nova Scotia’s favourite crooner back to King’s to mark the release of his new album, Simply Christmas, 10 years after Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas became a world-wide hit

About this year’s Christmas tour he says: “We’ll be doing pieces that range from swing to traditional songs like Let it Snow and The Christmas Song and White Christmas, as well as religious pieces, such as my favourite, O Holy Night,” Gracie says. “A song I wrote, Cape Breton Christmas Morn, has become a standard at these concerts, so I’ll be singing that. I’ve been known to throw some Tony Bennet in. I’ll ask the audience if they want that and they always agree.”

“Family has always been important to John and he has many stories about growing up in Cape Breton. They inspired him to write his hugely popular song, Cape Breton Christmas Morn,” Gracie’s wife and manager, Andree, says. “He writes about his mom baking pies, his dad singing from his big chair and the warmth of family gatherings. John’s father was dying from cancer when John wrote Cape Breton Christmas Morn, so it is filled with emotion and I think people feel that when they listen to it.”

The evening will also include stories from his childhood in Cape Breton, ranging from Stories of Christmases past from the morning he woke up to find a Fred Flintstone punching bag, or the great story of when his mother thought she bought him a Montreal Canadiens full outfit but made a big mistake.

About the Nutcracker

Clara is given an enchanted Nutcracker doll on Christmas Eve. As midnight strikes, she creeps downstairs to find a magical adventure awaiting her and her Nutcracker.

The magician Drosselmeyer transforms the drawing room for a battle between mice and toy soldiers. During the battle, Clara saves the Nutcracker’s life – so breaking a magical spell that turned him from a boy to a toy – and the Mouse King is defeated. In celebration, Drosselmeyer sweeps Clara and the Nutcracker off to the Kingdom of Sweets, where they meet the Sugar Plum Fairy and take part in a wonderful display of dances. The next morning, Clara’s adventures seem to have been more than just a dream.
