JIMMY RANKIN FROM NASHVILLE TO NOVA SCOTIA WITH NEW ALBUM, MOVING EAST BRINGS THE PARTY TO THE KITCHENNew Joel Plaskett-produced album, national tour coming to Northwest TerritoriesNow this is big news. One of the true originals in Canadian music has moved from Nashville to Nova Scotia, and is celebrating with music only he could make. Jimmy Rankin's new Moving East is pure East Coast, a homecoming album featuring true stories, tall tales and bittersweet ballads, and the classic folk-rock sound that Rankin helped pioneer. Just at a time when people are searching out authentic cultural voices, strong stories and well-crafted songs, Rankin has made an unapologetically East Coast folk-rock record, with a raw, unsentimental and current edge. “I’m putting the party back in the kitchen” quips Rankin. It's called Moving East because that's exactly what Jimmy's done. He's moved back to Nova Scotia after seven years living and working in Nashville. ******* ** with fellow Nova Scotian Joel Plaskett as producer, he's made ** **bum appealing to young and old alike, with songs running the gamut from gritty pub tunes to soulful ballads all featuring great storytelling, and fine songwriting. Tickets $90 Baby Brian Wea**** will be performing a pre-show concert before the main event.

Eckhardt-Grammate National Music Competition Winner's Tour with Amy Hillis and Katherine Dowling

Oct 24, 2018 07:30 PM - 09:00 PM
Black Ice Sound and NACC present the Eckhardt-Gramatté National Music Competition 2018 Winner’s Tour with Amy Hillis and Katherine Dowling. The Eckhardt-Gramatté National Music Competition is an annual contemporary music competition for exceptional emerging Canadian performing artists in piano, voice, and strings. For 40 years, the annual E-Gré Competition and Winner’s Tour have played a significant role in the early careers of performers recognized nationally and internationally for their achievements in music. E-Gré prize winners include Officers of the Order of Canada James Ehnes, Ben Heppner and Jon Kimura Parker. Each year, a Winner’s Tour of ten to twelve concerts across Canada is awarded as part of the 1st-prize package. The E-Gré Competition fosters the creation of new music by living Canadian composers through the commissioning of a test piece each year. The commissioned work is performed at each concert, and the 2018 commissioned work is by Yellowknife composer Carmen Braden titled Foxy Fox’s Musical Games. AMY HILLIS Originally from Regina, Saskatchewan, Amy collaborates with musicians from around the world to explore new approaches to classical and contemporary music. Amy was a 2017 artist-in-residence at La Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris. She is also the winner of the 2018 Eckhardt-Gramatté Competition, the 2017 McGill Concerto Competition, the Sylva Gelber Foundation Music Award, and a doctoral fellowship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. Her principal teachers have been Axel Strauss, Ian Swensen, Denise Lupien and Eduard Minevich. Amy is a member of the Montreal-based SOMA Quartet as well as first violinist and manager of the prairie-based Horizon String Quartet. KATHERINE DOWLING Praised by the New York Times for her “crystalline performances, gestural expressiveness, and careful attention to color”, and by the Boston Globe for her “effortless incisiveness”, award-winning Canadian pianist Dr. Katherine Dowling has performed across North America and Europe. Equally compelling as a solo, collaborative, and ensemble player, she has performed as a member of the New Fromm Players of the Tanglewood Festival, Gruppo Montebello ensemble (Etcetera label), and enjoys close associations with The Orlando Festival, The Banff Centre, and the Aldeburgh Festival. She credits her teacher Gil Kalish as the major influence in her musical life. Amy Hillis has “ a rich, warm sound and has mastered the violin with such ease, that it is impossible to ignore her passion in performance” – Ludwig Van Montréal Katherine Dowling praised for “crystalline performances, gestural expressiveness, and careful attention to color” – New York Times
