There’s a show coming up in Winnipeg that I really want to recommend. Wednesday at The Park Theatre, Catherine MacLellan comes to town along with her partner/ace guitarist Chris Gauthier. They are terrific. I highly recommend this show, and to prove it, I’ve got a couple of things I want to tell you about.
First, I’m putting on my dancing shoes and pretending to be Eugene for a bit, and I’ll dance my way to your doorstep to sell you a ticket. Tickets are $15, but if you buy them at the usual outlets around town, they tack on a fee for their services. I do not. $15 straight up, cash. Heck, I’ll even float you the ticket and you can pay me back later if that makes it easier for you. Plus, I’ll bring it to you! I really want you to join me at this show.
I guarantee that you’ll love the show!
Catherine is a really interesting, wonderful person, so I’ve asked to speak with her again this Sunday on Tell the Band to Go Home.
Catherine is a very honest, open person, and has shared a lot about her life over the years. Recently she shared a powerful post on the 20th anniversary of her father’s death.
Her latest album, The Raven’s Sun, which just the other day was nominated for 2 Juno awards, is a much happier album than some of her other albums. Being the dark, miserable individual that I am, it took me a while to warm up to, but I can tell you, it’s become one of my favourites.
The album that made me a huge fan was her second, and first for True North Records, Church Bell Blues. It dealt with a painful, difficult breakup, and uncertain time in her life. She bared it all in song, so beautifully. That is still one of my very favourites.
