Gathering Sparks in Toronto

Neighbourhood Unitarian Universalist Congregation
310 Danforth Ave, Toronto, ON M4K 1N6, Canada
You will come to listen, and walk away singing. GATHERING SPARKS is the graceful collision of Eve Goldberg and Jane Lewis – musical friends who blend tight harmonies, finely crafted songs, and a love of participatory singing to create an intimate and uplifting experience.
With an infectious mix of styles and compelling vocal blend, Gathering Sparks has made waves from their inception. Their debut 6-song CD was nominated for a 2014 Canadian Folk Music Award for Vocal Group of the Year, and they quickly became an audience favourite. Their newest album, All That’s Real, was released in September 2019 on Borealis Records. The lead track, “Bringing in the Light,” was recognized with a 2019 Folk Music Ontario “Songs From the Heart” award in the singer-songwriter category.
“Phenomenal songs binding the individual skills of its members together as one with rich, honeyed harmonies.”
— Eric G. Thom, Penguin Eggs Magazine
“Gathering Sparks brings level of musical skill and spontaneity to their songs onstage that is rare and welcome. Their sophisticated, intertwining harmonies complement finely crafted lyrics. Each song is fresh, taking the audience on new journeys and adventures. We were pleased to host their appearance in early 2019 and eagerly await their return.”
— Mike and Lorraine Messitt, The Anchor Coffee House, Lewes, DE
“What a delight! Great songs, great singing and lovely harmonies. I’m singing along as if I’ve known these songs forever.”
— Sharon Hampson of Sharon, Lois & Bram
