RACHEL BECK & THE ATLANTIC STRING MACHINE
Aug 3 @ 7:30 pm

Glowing with catchy pop hooks, Rachel Beck’s distinctive piano melodies and emotive vocals are captivating audiences across Canada. The PEI songbird’s first single, Reckless Heart, hit #1 on the CBC Music Top 20 in March 2018, just one week after the release of her multi award-winning debut record. “Beck clearly establishes herself here as a force to be reckoned with, both as a songwriter and as a performer.” (The Guardian Newspaper)

 

 

The Atlantic String Machine is a multi award-winning classical fusion string quintet. Individually, its members have graced stages around the globe with internationally renowned symphony and chamber orchestras, ensembles, and touring artists. As a collective, they have performed with Canadian treasures Sarah Slean, Lennie Gallant, The Once — and now, a fellow Island artist and friend.

 

 

Rachel Beck featuring The Atlantic String Machine is an exciting new collaboration which invites audiences to experience Beck’s original compositions against a lush soundscape of piano, strings, and percussion. Exposed. Confessional. Connective. Beck’s warm stage presence and superb vocals envelope listeners as they collectively journey across a wide emotional range – from regret and grief to wonder and joy.

JEFF HENNESSY & The Sundries / HARVEY MARCOTTE – Double Bill
Aug 29 @ 7:30 pm

Join us for a double-bill with two extraordinary of the region’s finest folk-roots-country singer-songwriters and multi-instrumentalists. Jeff Hennessy and Harvey Marcotte will each take the stage with an incredibly talented roster of musicians, performing their own music separately, and plus a few tunes together for one rollicking show.

JEFF HENNESSY, is a singer-songwriter, singer, and multi-instrumentalist based in Wolfville, launched his first CD right here in Annapolis Royal some 20 years ago, and has maintained deep connections in the community. He’s performed on the King’s stage twice in the last year alone, and with this concert he’ll be joined by his band THE SUNDRIES. They’re all professional musicians who have united in their collective love of country music to create a band that not only showcases high level musicianship but also creates a sound that will get everybody moving – a high energy night of old country, new country, and “countryish” other songs. Amazing musicians and a really fun show – super cool country music!

 

 

  • Jeff Hennessy: Keyboards, Guitar, Vocals
  • Sarah Pound: Vocals, Guitar, Keyboards
  • Mike Reese: Lead Guitar, Mandolin, Vocals
  • Mike Carroll: Drums

He`s played professionally since the tender age of 15.  Performing the Acadian band Blou, he traveled to France, South America, and several Canadien festivals. He has shared the stage with Mae Moore, Susan Crowe, Jay Unger, Wilbur Hill, Rusty Trout, and more. He makes his home in Bear River.

KINKY BOOTS – Broadway Musical
Aug 31 @ 7:00 pm

KINKY BOOTS The Broadway Musical in HD

Filmed at the Adelphi Theatre in London, Kinky Boots the Tony, Grammy & Olivier Award-winning musical from pop icon Cyndi Lauper and legendary playwright Harvey Fierstein, directed and choreography by Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell and based on the film written by Geoff Deane and Tim Firth, hits the big screen.

Inspired by true events, this huge-hearted hit tells the story of two people with nothing in common – or so they think. Charlie (played by Olivier Award nominee Killian Donnelly) is a factory owner struggling to save his family business, and Lola (played by Matt Henry, who won an Olivier Award for the role) is a fabulous entertainer with a wildly exciting idea. With a little compassion and a lot of understanding, this unexpected pair learn to embrace their differences and create a line of sturdy stilettos unlike any the world has ever seen! But in the end, their most sensational achievement is their friendship.

Runtime: 2 hours 25 minutes

COIG
Sep 15 @ 7:30 pm

When the creative juices are flowing, there’s no holding back the talented quartet that makes up the Celtic supergroup Còig: Fiddler Chrissy Crowley, multi-instrumentalist Darren McMullen, piano player Jason Roach and Rachel Davis on fiddle, viola, vocals.

Còig’s music is a unique combination of influences that could only come from these four players. It’s traditional for sure, but it’s performed in a lot of non-traditional ways. “We all come from sort of a traditional background, but then we have different influences that we’re interested in,” explains fiddler and singer Rachel Davis. “Jason has a jazz degree, and listens to a lot of different music. Chrissy likes to dive into a lot of world music, Darren comes from a kind of Irish theme from playing around. More of the traditional Cape Breton music is really what I love, plus all the folk songs, so it’s an interesting mix.”

That leads to the other magic ingredient in Còig. It’s a band of fast friends, people that grew up together, played together, and knew each other way before they ever considered being in a band together. The best in trad music, in a non-traditional way. That’s Còig.

Darren McMullen – guitar, mandolin, mandola, banjo, bouzouki, whistles, flute, vocals
Rachel Davis – fiddle, viola, vocals
Jason Roach – piano
Chrissy Crowley – fiddle
