A quick look at Shivering Songs events for today, January 25.

The ninth annual Shivering Songs festival is now in full swing with events happening across the downtown district all weekend including the Boyce Farmer’s Market, the Capital Complex, Charlotte Street Arts Centre and Wilmot United Church.   

There are several events happening today under the festival banner.  Let’s take a look.

Jeremy Dutcher + Bedouine at Wilmot United Church

Performer, composer, activist, musicologist – these roles all infused Jeremy Dutcher’s art and way of life. A member of Tobique First Nation in New Brunswick, Jeremy travelled to the Canadian Museum of History after his music studies in Halifax to continue his study of Wolastoq music. While at the Museum, Jeremy encountered archival material that was taken among the Wolastoqiyik over a century ago. He brings these voices forward in hopes that we may all draw on their knowledge. With every successive performance, Dutcher moves his audience with the power of his voice and the depth of his artistry. Trained as a tenor, he alternates between power opera, electronica rhythms and traditional Wolastoq melodies directly descended from his ancestors, mixing them with old sonic samples from here or there.

Azniv Korkejian, who makes music under the moniker Bedouine, draws on folk and 70s country — compelling influences, but not necessarily the music that surrounded her early on in life. Born in Aleppo, Syria, to Armenian parents, Korkejian spent her early childhood in Saudi Arabia. After her family won the green-card lottery, she moved to the U.S. at the age of 10. Paying homage to folks magnets like Nick Drake, Joni Mitchell, and Leonard Cohen, but in her own startlingly unique voice and lush arrangements, Korkejian’s 2017 debut as Bedouine is “a modern folk masterpiece” (The FADER) from “a future legend” (The New York Times), and “one of the most charming albums of the year” (The Guardian).

Erin Costello + Daniel James at Charlotte Street Arts Centre

Erin Costelo mines the truth, through writing, arranging, producing, and masterful live performance. With a voice unlike any other in Canada she has the ability to successfully float between genres and stages, her unwavering vision continuously offering the best sound and voice to a feeling, idea, or story. She’s had the opportunity to open for Mavis Staples, Dr. John, and Bettye Lavette and has recently performed with Levon Helm’s Midnight Ramble Band. Her music has been streamed over half a million times, viewed hundreds of thousands of times online and landed on !earshot “Most Played 2016” chart.

Hailing from Moncton, New Brunswick, Simon Daniel is one of the Acadian music scene’s most promising new talents. His alternative pop is original and eclectic, blending elements of folk, jazz and progressive rock. A self-taught singer-songwriter, he released his fist EP Jaune in October 2015.
