Winnipeg songwriter Christine Fellows has announced a handful of Canadian dates to help support her artistic and ambitious Burning Daylight album and accompanying poetry book.
The performer will be taking her Christine Fellows Trio, featuring cellists Alex McMaster and Leanne Zacharias, out on the road in January for a short string of shows. The performances will showcase the self-described "minimalist Klondike showtunes" of Fellows' sixth full-length studio release, with the trio hitting up her hometown, making it up to the Yukon for shows in Dawson City and Whitehorse, and then down to Vancouver for a couple of sets.
You'll find all of the details down below.
As previously reported, Burning Daylight was inspired by Fellows' songwriter-in-residence stay at the Dawson City Music Festival in the Yukon, as well as a trip to Nunavut with the National Film Board. The set "examines dislocation, isolation, family and frailty, reflected in our relationship with the ever-changing northern landscape."
