Raine’s newest album, Night Sky, tips between the earthly and the otherworldly; it is anchored in relatable lived experience, while reaching into the space just beyond, thinning the veil between here and there, affording safe passage to the rough and beautiful places.
Raine’s ethereal voice and lyrics are at the forefront of these powerful and relatable tunes, written both in English and in French. Alongside cello + double bass, and with Raine on violin or guitar, these songs have a moving string quartet feel with a cosmic reach.
Raine is also a charming and funny storyteller, pairing her vulnerable tunes with engaging story intros. Raine believes that music is for everyone, and that we all have something to share. An experienced educator, Raine offers workshops in songwriting and fiddle tune writing (EN/FR).
The Night Sky album release will open with an artist’s circle featuring Abigail Lapell, Nic Dyson, Gabriela Ocejo and Marisole Negash, and ASL poetry by Jordan Sangalang. They will all share songs in the round, and it will be awesome.
The album release will have American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation, along with ASL consultation and shadowing by Joanna Hawkins. The goal is to help make live music and the community that comes with it more accessible to the Deaf community.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. The venue is wheelchair accessible. Gender inclusive washrooms.
