Shivering Songs welcome returning performer Basia Bulat for a fall performance October 26 in support of her new album, The Garden.
Basia Bulat will bring her latest album, The Garden, to Fredericton audiences this fall. This string-based collection of songs was recorded during the pandemic. The Garden isn’t a greatest hits collection but a re-configuration of sorts and a chance for Bulat to revisit songs spanning her entire career.
The Garden gathers fourteen string arrangements by three different arrangers (Owen Pallett, Paul Frith, and Zou Zou Robidoux), revisiting material from all five of Bulat’s studio albums. There’s Pallett’s interpretation of 2010’s Heart of my Own, calling back to the Béla Bartók compositions that marked Bulat’s high-school career as an upright bassist. There’s Frith’s Infamous, which turns 2016’s prickly kiss-off into something open-facing and generous. And there’s Robidoux’s reimagining of Are You In Love? — released just last year — which becomes a whirling ballroom dance, full of discovery.
Tickets for Bulat’s October 26 performance at the Fredericton Playhouse are now on sale.
