The Likes of Jeff Pittman

“Hello starling, little darling, mimicking inflections. Hello magpie, clever guy, admiring your reflection…”

Jeff Pittman is a folk singer-songwriter and storyteller whose style and delivery are borne of years spent entertaining in shed parties and community halls of his native Newfoundland. Coming from a long line of family poets and humorists, Pittman’s songs tell stories of time and place, ranging from pun-laden toe-tappers to quirky singalongs and heartfelt ballads.

 

Opening with:

Don Dunphy

An avid storyteller, Don includes traditional stories and recitations along with many original works in his repertoire.  While most of his stories are delivered in the traditional manner, he often belts out a ballad or so and other stories told in song.  It is important to note that half the lies he tells are not true.

Tickets: $10 per person; $25 per family (HST included)

The Swinging Belles

JUNO award winners, The Swinging Belles, a swing band for kids from St. John’s, NL, are intent on getting both kids and adults to kick up their heels and have a swinging good time with the whole family!

The Swinging Belles feature child educators and performers Laura Winter and Erin Power joined by guitarist extraordinaire Duane Andrews. This show is all about getting kids and parents out to have a dance and enjoy some swing country and jazz – kid style. Every Swinging Belles performance is packed with music, interactive storytelling and dancing … lots of dancing!

With songs, stories, puppets, dancing and more… “The trio have all the tools to mesmerize tots from Paris to Texas, London to Istanbul and back.” – Dillon Collins, The Newfoundland Herald.

Pamela Morgan

Former lead singer for and one of the original members of folk/rock innovators Figgy Duff, has been a leading performer in the Celtic music scene for the almost forty years. For nineteen years, Pamela and Figgy Duff grew famous for their strikingly original and beautiful arrangements of traditional Newfoundland/Celtic material as well as their equally impressive and powerful original material. At the forefront was Morgan’s haunting and mesmerizing voice.

Allison Crowe

From the Viking Trail to the Hollywood Hills, Allison Crowe makes music for everyone.  Radiant in Theatre Newfoundland Labrador’s company – a decade with GMTF nurturing her wholehearted love for Cow Head / Gros Morne – Allison embraces trad folk & Celtic to timeless jazz, roots, rock, (originals + interpretations), alongside music for film.  Her thrilling performances of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” & Elvis’ “Viva Las Vegas”, recorded in Allison’s hometown, Corner Brook, are each in cinematic blockbusters – both movies, amazingly, receiving the inaugural “Fan Favorite” Oscars at this year’s Academy Awards ceremony.
