Tidings: Singer-Songwriter Allison Crowe w Cellist/Vocalist Céline Sawchuk
Canada’s amazing Allison Crowe (vocals, piano & guitar), Vancouver Island-born, Newfoundland-nested singer-songwriter, pairs with exquisite cellist/vocalist Celine Sawchuk, born in Germany’s Black Forest and now home on Salt Spring Island, BC to bring “Tidings” – music for the season & all-time.
Tidings delivers comforts and joys – stirring together traditional Christmas and holiday favourites from English, French and German repertoire, with an organic blend of rock, jazz, folk, roots and soul.
Nanaimo’s Allison Crowe performs concerts across Europe and North America from her home on Canada’s Atlantic coast. In Corner Brook, NL, Allison’s writing a book of prose poetry, “Fluttering”, and composing songs for a new album, “Rare Birds” (her 22nd release on Rubenesque Records). She’s Musical Director of “Newfoundland Vinyl”, a rollicking hit at TNL’s Gros Morne Theatre Festival. Other adventures include Allison’s cameo in the Hollywood Superman blockbuster “Man of Steel” and touring as featured singer/pianist with Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet. Allison’s even appeared as a clue/answer in Cryptic Crossword (Cox & Rathvon’s iconic puzzler.)
When Céline Sawchuk (née Greb) migrated recently from the Black Forest community of Dennach, our Pacific coast region gained a freshly creative graphic designer as well as a most expressive and talented cellist. Céline’s combined 17 years of classical training with concert tours across Europe alongside her popular musician Father. (Céline actually wanted to play cello since age 3 – but only at 5 years old was she big enough to fit behind her chosen instrument.)
Uniting a range of rich cultural traditions, Allison and Céline deliver musical joy and wonderment this holiday season in the acoustic embrace of the C-Lab.
