Raine Hamilton w/ Brett Nelson

  • Wilbur's Piano Bar 315 Lawrence Avenue Kelowna, BC, V1Y 6L4 Canada (map)

Prairie songstress Raine Hamilton writes resonant, acoustic folk with an other-worldly edge, and a lyric presence that cuts deep. 

Raine invites her love of the violin into the singer-songwriter genre, writing for violin and voice, as well as for guitar and voice. Raine is part prairie songstress, part storyweaver; Each song has a story, delivered between songs with humour and grace. Expect to laugh, expect to cry. Also, she’s probably shorter than you’re imagining, so expect that, too.

This summer, her prism-clear voice and sage songs will be ringing through the stonescape of the Canadian Shield, the exposed flatlands of the prairies, and the tall tops of the BC mountains on her Rock and a Tall Place Tour. Raine's songs combine the exposed honesty of the Canadian Shield bedrock, the open resonance of the prairie, and the brave reach of the mountain range; Her songs are connected with the land, drawn from lived experience, and created from the inside out. The result is a moving, honest, and vulnerable acoustic experience that blends Raine's graceful storytelling and cutting lyrics with her Joni Mitchell-esque vocal agility, and that affords safe passage to the rough and beautiful places.

Brett Nelson brings an elegance and poetic fascination to the singer-songwriter genre. His carefully gritty fingerstyle guitar-playing gives landscape to meticulous lyrical weavings reflective of a decade spent in migration. Performing for gatherings from Winnipeg to Madison County, California to Halifax, and at music festivals around Canada, Brett Nelson inexhaustibly embraces the mirror held up by an attentive audience, allowing for an inclusive evolution in his songwriting.
