Concert Listings Roundup #350

You can read more about why I'm doing listings here. Long story short: This curated and decidedly non-comprehensive list contains nothin' but shows that I am going to/would go to if I had more time.

Special note:

For the past six-and-a-half years, I've faithfully been cranking out these listings every Monday. Because of the unprecedented situation we now find ourselves in, this week's listings remain blank. Stay safe and sheltered.

Livestream nation:

  • The Music Gallery at Home series continues tonight at 7 p.m. with history (featuring Juliet Palmer in conversation with Laura Stanley), and on Friday with music (Naomi McCarroll-Butler interpreting Xuan Ye's "Even a Blind Squirrel Finds a Nut Once in a While" and other pieces).
  • On Sunday (April 26th) Cheryl Duvall will be live-streaming an hour of water-inspired piano solos by Emilie LeBel, Kotoka Suzuki and Anna Hostman as part of the #CanadaPerforms concert series. (It'll be going down on the National Arts Centre's page.)

Bandcamp corner:

  • Guelph's hurdy-gurdy master Ben Grossman is soundtracking our strange times with an album of Isolation Etudes, a "series of improvisations hastily recorded, un-edited, one take, trying to capture some of the various states during the spring of 2020".
  • Jeff Sinibaldi (most often seen in live performance in these parts adding sounds to Del Stephen's performances) has a new collection from his Sick Days project, a low-key bricolage mixing field recordings, reverse delay, percussion and contact mic experiments into some pleasing rumbles.
  • Released just before the Change In Things, Lina Allemano's solo Glimmer Glammer album offers an inventive mix of "trumpet, mutes & materials" in a series of joyful, spontaneous sound celebrations.
