WELLAND – Based on past experience, this a musical group you do not want to miss.
And you get your chance tomorrow, Friday, May 26, because Kindred is performing live at the Welland Community Wellness Complex theatre.
As Canada celebrates is 150th birthday this year, there are many different ways that Canadians will mark this occasion. The members of Kindred have played live music since their childhood/teens in various groups. Music reflects a personal history, a history of the times, a history of our friends, and a national pride.
As Canadians, some say, we have developed an introspective approach to music. We have a rich musical heritage. Music that tells a story of its people.
When asked to perform a concert as part of the Friday Night Music Series at the Welland Community Wellness Complex again this year, Kindred decided it should celebrate that musical history, so the band members have selected a few of the numerous Canadian songwriters/performers covered over the years, and some that it continues to perform, and a few new ones. It selected songs that represent the story of Canada and its people and songs that reflect an era as well as great hits by Canadian songwriters.
Our Kindred Canadian Songbook selects from the storytelling of Murray McLaughlin, the beautiful, haunting sounds and lyrics of Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen, Gordon Lightfoot, to the Celtic sounds of Stan Rogers, Great Big Sea and Spirit of the West.
They also include the music and lyrics of Bruce Cockburn, Blue Rodeo, Tragically Hip, Neil Young, Robbie Robertson and the Band and the Guess Who. Of course, like all other songs that Kindred selects, “we make them our own”, in the words of Joni Romano.
Kindred hopes that you will come and join them for this FREE concert in celebration of Canada’s 150th on Friday, May 26 at 7pm.
