Musical Tidings on tap: Allison Crowe @ ACC

Capping a sensational year - concert tours in Europe and Canada for her 20th international record release - being home this week and part of “A Beary Merry Christmas” festivities at the Arts and Culture Centre heralds a joyous holiday season for Allison Crowe. Before stockings are hung by the chimney with care the Corner Brook musician rejoins her mates at Theatre Newfoundland and Labrador to load up the sleigh with still more delights.

In 2016 Crowe helmed her fifth Summer as Musical Director of TNL’s much-loved “Newfoundland Vinyl” – performing, too, on-stage in “Vinyl” and with the ensemble of “Neddy Norris Night”, a traditional music hit at the Gros Morne Theatre Festival in Cow Head. Crowe’s now MD for “Ed & Ed’s Newfoundland Christmas Concert” which delivers Yuletide spirit to the ACC CB from December 1st – 4th. Hosted by three wise-cracking charmers, Ed, Ed & Edna, TNL’s old-tyme revue bundles fashion, fortunes-told, and an original Mummer’s Play into family-friendly fun - skits, songs, carols, even a sing-along:

Peals of merriment will be echoing from “Ed and Ed’s” encampment, (of the weekend prior), when Allison Crowe enlivens the ACC stage on Saturday, December 10th (8pm start) for her annual “Tidings” concert. Invigorating songs of Newfoundland and from o’er the sea flow freely, tapped alongside barrels of the singer-songwriter’s own compositions and cherished carols.

It’s a thrilling blend of rock, jazz, folk, Celtic and soul that Allison Crowe pours out in song. Crowe (vocals, piano, guitar, fiddle & bodhran) is sure to be joined by surprise musical guests for a singular night of celebration sharing timeless carols, vital originals and fresh takes on trad tunes spanning centuries as well as modern classics. “Be prepared to be amazed.”
