Join Linda for her her series Come on Up to the House with Special Guests Rita Hosking and Sean Feder for a Zoom concert to benefit Arts in Corrections - promoting healing and interpersonal transformation for incarcerated people. Free tickets can be reserved at https://lindamcrae.com/tour. RITA HOSKING: “In scorching form” (Telegraph), Northern California's Rita Hosking sings of culture clash, dishes, forest fires, and hope. With her stories in song and soul-stirring voice, Rita partners with multi-instrumentalist Sean Feder on sparkling dobro and banjo to deliver what Acoustic Magazine calls “timeless, unhurried elegance.” Quotes: "More authenticity and integrity than you can shake a stick at," --Maverick Magazine "Arresting lines and images come thick and fast. Her songs are observational, political and philosophical in an unaffected, organic way." --Songlines Magazine "Mesmerizing," --Pure M Magazine ARTS IN CORRECTIONS; Since 2011, James and I have been facilitating our Express Yourself Writing Workshops for inmates, at risk youth and marginalized people all over North America. Our program would not exist had it not been for our involvement in California's Arts and Corrections Program and our first visits to New Folsom Prison. The program is terribly underfunded and it is our hope to help support their mandate to strengthen rehabilitation through Arts and Culture. Donations will be gratefully accepted on behalf of their arts programs (with a small admin and outreach fee for the series).Find out more »
Tune in: https://www.facebook.com/CityHallLiveOnline/live_videos/ Donate: https://unisonfund.ca/donations/spotify About the artist: Julian Taylor doesn’t fit in a box. He never has—and more power to him. A Toronto music scene staple and a musical chameleon, Julian Taylor is used to shaking it up over the course of 10 albums in the last two decades. Of West Indian and Mohawk descent, Taylor first made his name as frontman of Staggered Crossing, a Canadian rock radio staple in the early 2000s. These days, however, the soulful singer/guitarist might be on stage one night playing with his eponymous band, spilling out electrified rhythm and blues glory, and the next he’ll be performing at a folk festival delivering a captivating solo singer-songwriter set. His songs have been placed in shows like Kim’s Convenience, Haven, Private Eyes and Elementary. He’s been invited to perform at two Olympic Games. The soulful blues, rhythmic soul, rootsy rock riffs and troubadour-esque folk songs that comprise his music are worth putting your busy life on hold for. In everything he does, Taylor has carved his own path, creating genre-free music with a generosity of spirit and a strong belief in the healing powers of song. Off stage, Taylor recently ventured into radio; when the Indigenous radio station ELMNT FM opened in Toronto in 2018, Taylor became the station’s afternoon-drive host. www.juliantaylormusic.caFind out more »
