To celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary, this concert takes us back to our roots, the year 1867.
Singer-songwriters Barry Payne and Dayna Manning join the Factory Arts Ensemble in this coffeehouse style concert exploring the musical influences inspiring our fledgling nation.
Canadian songs from the mid 1800s describing the immigrant experience will be placed alongside European music by Grieg, Tchaikovsky, Mussorgsky and Arthur Sullivan - composers also looking to their traditional roots for musical inspiration.
