Jordan Klassen | Andy Shauf | Claire Morrison
April 16, 8:00 pm to 10:30 pm
Jordan Klassen makes music built out of pure imagination. Kindness, a 4 song EP, introduces rich and full-bodied singing alongside his now ubiquitous falsetto.
Gracefully dramatic enough to be featured in Catch .44, an upcoming film starring
Bruce Willis & Forrest Whitaker, and joining other Klassen creations which have found
their ways onto television series, including USA Network’s Royal Pains, and the upcoming
iTunes version of late 90s TV show Felicity.
Beautiful Lies II: Rayannah Kroeker | Margaret Howison | Tim Elias
April 22, 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm
An evening of original songs from singer-storytellers Rayannah Kroeker, Margaret Howison and Tim Elias.
The intimate setting of the Aqua Books theatre is a perfect place to hear these musical stories. Each song is individual, personal, and equal part truth and lie.
