Alison Crowe “Tidings”
Allison Crowe’s excited and delighted people everywhere she’s been this year – from rocking the concert stages of Europe to joyously returning as Musical Director of “Newfoundland Vinyl”, a perennial favourite at TNL’s Gros Morne Theatre Festival. To wrap this year with music and help light up the holiday season she’ll be home again with Tidings for all at the ACC. This concert tradition stirs together favourite Christmas carols with year-round music from the songbook of a singular musician and performer. Allison Crowe’s unique way has carried her all over the globe, and into such company as the Master of the Queen’s Music, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Britain’s Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy, and tours with Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet. Allison’s appreciative audience can even be found in Hollywood, USA which led her from Corner Brook to a cameo in the latest Superman blockbuster. “No matter where she is in this world, that voice, that conviction, it crosses all borders. She’s one of those rare artists that fits into any culture, any community because she is who she is – an incredible talent,” comments Jeffrey Pitcher, Artistic Director of Theatre Newfoundland and Labrador.
