The legendary Liona Boyd is set to close out the 2014 Music at Fieldcote summer concert series on Sunday, Aug. 24.
A five-time Juno Award winner, Boyd recently released her new album, The Return…to Canada with Love. The album celebrates Boyd’s relocation to her homeland after spending 20 years living in the United States. The Return is a powerful mix of nostalgia, romanticism and storytelling, with just a dash of patriotism.
Music at Fieldcote is free and runs every Sunday from 7-8:30 p.m. In case of rain, concerts move to St. Andrews Presbyterian Church, 31 Sulphur Springs Rd.
Up next on the summer series music agenda on Aug. 10 is Jayme Stone’s Lomax Project, with Eli West, Margaret Glaspy, Brittany Haas and Greg Garrison.
Celebrating the work of famed folklorist and field recording pioneer Alan Lomax, the distinctive and creative roots musicians revive, recycle and re-imagine the traditional music. Their repertoire includes Bahamian sea chanties, African-American a cappella singing from the Georgia Sea Islands, Old World weavers’ work songs, ancient Appalachian ballads, field hollers, fiddle tunes and ring shouts.
On Aug. 17, FullSet performs Irish traditional music. Following the tremendous success of their debut album, Notes At Liberty, the group is quickly becoming one of the most well-known bands on the Irish music scene.
