Tom Allen’s first LIVE show in so long – and what a delight that he will be returning to the festival this summer. Join us for an outdoor performance in beautiful PondView Estates Winery in Niagara-On-The-Lake.
In August of 1965 the world-renown American artist, composer, thinker and understated disrupter John Cage, was invited to teach at the Emma Lake Artists’ Colony, in rural Saskatchewan. Cage was a keen mycologist – a mushroom expert – and one afternoon he pursued this passion into the deep Saskatchewan woods, and got lost. The following afternoon he stumbled onto a gravel road several kilometres away and was found by the RCMP, but what happened during that time? What went through the famously clear mind of Cage as everything about him changed and he came face to face with oblivion?
Along with composer, producer and bass clarinetist Jeff Reilly, harpist Lori Gemmell, soprano Patricia O’Callaghan and multi-instrumentalist Peter Gemmell, we’ll take you into the woods, into silence, into fear and into clarity.
