SOLD OUT - Tidings: Allison Crowe w. Céline Sawchuk & Super Special Guests
Canada's amazing Allison Crowe (vocals, piano, guitar, fiddle & bodhran), Vancouver Island-born, Newfoundland-nested singer-songwriter, joins with exquisite cellist/vocalist Celine Sawchuk, born in Germany's Black Forest and now home on Salt Spring Island, BC, alongside a cavalcade of Nanaimos finest young talent - Samantha Montgomery Swan, Nasya Moore, Jessica Langelier, Ella Olesen, Kyra Vance, Zoë Chow and Raymond Salgado - accompanied by pianist Chelsea Peckett  to bring Tidings. Music for the season & all-time.

Nanaimo Tidings concert is Sold Out. Thank you all so much!

Tidings delivers comforts and joys  stirring together traditional Christmas and holiday favourites from English, French and German repertoire, with an organic blend of rock, jazz, folk, roots and soul.

Nanaimos Allison Crowe performs concerts across Europe and North America from her home on Canadas Atlantic coast. In Corner Brook, NL, Allisons writing a book of prose poetry, Fluttering, and composing songs for a new album, Rare Birds (her 22nd release on Rubenesque Records). Shes Musical Director of Newfoundland Vinyl, a rollicking hit at TNLs Gros Morne Theatre Festival. Other adventures include Allisons cameo in the Hollywood Superman blockbuster Man of Steel and touring as featured singer/pianist with Canadas Royal Winnipeg Ballet. Allisons even appeared as a clue/answer in Cryptic Crossword (Cox & Rathvons iconic puzzler.)

When Céline Sawchuk (née Greb) migrated recently from the Black Forest community of Dennach, our Pacific coast region gained a freshly creative graphic designer as well as a most expressive and talented cellist. Célines combined 17 years of classical training with concert tours across Europe alongside her popular musician Father. (Céline actually wanted to play cello since age 3  but only at 5 years old was she big enough to fit behind her chosen instrument.)

Uniting a range of rich cultural traditions, Allison and Céline and Nanaimos stellar singer and musicians deliver musical joy and wonderment this holiday season in beautiful St. Andrews United Church.

Allison Crowes original tunes are sung by the chimney, together with gifts from the modern canon of Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, The Beatles and Patty Griffin. The pairs sleighful of traditionals and classics is bound to feature selections from such favourites as Silent Night, La Vie en Rose, Es ist ein ros Entsprungen, Soul Cake, Wexford Carol, In the Bleak Midwinter and plenty more delights  perhaps even a plum from Broadway!

"Allison Crowe's voice is as much a manifestation of Christmas spirit today as Bing Crosby's was in 1942. It's as warm as an open fire; as gorgeous as snow-frosted evergreens; as tender as that hug you give your mother on Christmas day"  The Pique
