JEREMY DUTCHER
Dec 8 @ 7:30 pm

Performer, composer, activist, musicologist — these roles are all infused into his art and way of life. His music, too, transcends boundaries: unapologetically playful in its incorporation of classical influences, full of reverence for the traditional songs of his home, and teeming with the urgency of modern-day struggles of resistance.

A member of Tobique First Nation in New Brunswick, Jeremy first did music studies in Halifax before taking a chance to work in the archives at the Canadian Museum of History, painstakingly transcribing Wolastoq songs from 1907 wax cylinders. “Many of the songs I’d never heard before, because our musical tradition on the East Coast was suppressed by the Canadian Government’s Indian Act.” Jeremy heard ancestral voices singing forgotten songs and stories that had been taken from the Wolastoqiyik generations ago.

DAVID CHAMBERLAND   David was born and raised in Sherbrooke, Quebec. In his youth, he passed hours learning tunes off of the radio. Completely self-taught, this exercise involved not only deciphering the correct chords, but also the lyrics – a task less evident to a French-speaking teenager who loved English-speaking bands. David often jokes that he sang “phonetically” for the first couple of years until he could understand what he was saying.

In Quebec, David played with many different musicians and was the lead singer in a Red Hot Chili Pepper Tribute Band and, after that, in his own band, Kedal. He has always loved playing music of all genres: pop, alternative, folk, reggae, blues, funk, and more. Since living in Nova Scotia, he has also been exploring live looping and a bit of Celtic music.

David and his wife Carmen moved to Bear River, Nova Scotia, in 2013. He has since enjoyed playing regular gigs in the counties of Annapolis and Digby. David’s performances can be described as eclectic; he thrives on creating a connection with his audience and his commentary between songs is often a performance in itself. Recently, David has begun to write his own compositions – something he has been eager to do for some time. When he is not jamming with Carmen in their living room or working at their gallery, David moonlights as a ninja-superhero.

CARMEN CHAMBERLAND  Carmen was born in Victoria, BC, where she started playing piano at the age of five. She studied classical piano and participated in numerous music festivals until she began university, at which time she stopped playing music. Inspired by the talent and contagious energy of her husband, David, she has recently started playing again – providing accompaniment for his vocal melodies. When she is not jamming with David in their living room, Carmen runs their business in Bear River: Blue Mind Gallery.

 

 

 

 

 

PAUL O’BRIEN is a UK-born singer-songwriter-instrumentalist based on the Bay of Fundy, who spends his winters touring Europe. He has a gift for going straight to the emotional heart of the story and taking his listeners with him. The music has a new Celtic feel, songs that are steeped in the acoustic tradition but retain a freshness and relevance, songs that will touch your heart, songs about real people and situations, songs you can remember.

 

TAREN YELLE was born in Digby, Nova Scotia, and was raised on both coasts of the United States. She studied at various institutions, including Lehigh University of Bethlehem (PA), Berklee College of Music (MA), Saint Mary’s University (Halifax), and graduated with a Bachelor of Music in trombone performance from Dalhousie.  Taren is a versatile, multi-instrumentalist and band leader. After performing for years throughout the New England area of the United States as well as in Kumamoto, Japan, Taren has happily moved back to the ruggedly beautiful “Sou’West” Nova Scotia. Since her return, she has focused on vocal performance and has joined with various groups in the region offering her own, fresh take on many genres, including jazz standards, R&B and blues. 

 

MARK BEZANSON   It’s really all about the blues. It is the constant that has run through the musical journey that Mark has taken. While not a classic blues man, it is undeniable that the Blues runs deep in Mark’s singing, bass playing and songwriting. Mark writes music to reflect what he is seeing, hearing, and feeling at the time. He read something a friend once said: “A song is a gift that you need to polish and re-gift to others.” With help from the very capable Caleb Miles, Mark has crafted songs to give to others. Love, relationships, the water and politics are themes that permeate his songwriting. What is the common thread? They are all bluesy, they are all delivered with soul, and they all come from a very real place. Mark currently plays with the Annapolis Valley’s premier classic rock band, Jokers Right, and the rock and soul trio, “The Idle Threats.” 

 

 

TIM FISK  Tim studied classical percussion at Dalhousie University, jazz drum set with Jerry Granelli, and has completed a Bacheler of Arts in Jazz Studies (Honours) from St. Francis Xavier University. He performs regularly with Annapolis Valley-based musicians including the group “Bluesmobile,” where he enjoys adding some Latin percussion to the mix.

Philip Glass’ AKHNATEN – Met Opera
Mar 22 @ 2:00 pm

Director Phelim McDermott tackles another one of Philip Glass’s masterpieces, following the now-legendary Met staging of Satyagraha. Star countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo is the title pharaoh, the revolutionary ruler who transformed ancient Egypt, with the striking mezzo-soprano J’Nai Bridges in her Met debut as his wife, Nefertiti. To match the opera’s hypnotic, ritualistic music, McDermott has created an arresting vision that includes a virtuosic company of acrobats and jugglers. Karen Kamensek conducts in her Met debut.

Please be aware that this production contains some full-frontal nudity, which may not be suitable for young audiences.

This production was originally created by English National Opera and LA Opera

In collaboration with Improbable
