TWO HEADLINE NIGHTS AT TORONTO’S BURDOCK ON FEBRUARY 19 AND 20 W/ SPECIAL GUESTS
This month Kevin Hearn will be hitting the road with Ron Sexsmith in support of his album, Days In Frames (Roaring Girl Records/Fontana North). Kevin will join Ron for six dates, with stops in Moncton, Saint John, Halifax, Woodstock, Waterloo and St. Catharines. He’ll also spend two nights headlining at Toronto’s Burdock on February 19th and 20th. Further details can be found below.
No stranger to touring with Ron, Kevin has shared the stage with him in the past. “Ron’s a good friend of mine and his audiences are wonderful to play for , because they are appreciative of a good song. It has been a pleasure opening his shows so far, and also joining him onstage to collaborate a little bit.” Kevin will be joined onstage by Hugh Marsh on violin, and Don Kerr on drums. He’ll spend his time travelling by van, seeing the country, and listening to Bob Dylan’s theme time radio hour on CD.
Days In Frames features the stunning first single Gallerina. “I read the term “Gallerina” in an article about a group of women who either work as consultants in, or own and operate fine art galleries. The song was written from the point of view of one of the paintings in a gallery, but could also be applied to human feelings of course. I did the demo of it with Don Kerr and ended up keeping his drumbeat because it was perfect.” Kevin continues, “Dan Hill (yes that Dan Hill) sings background vocals on it, which is cool because I played pinball with him at Manta Sound studios when I was 11 years old, while I was recording a record with St. Michael’s Choir school. Tom Elmhirst , who has mixed records by Amy Winehouse, Adele, Beck, and David Bowie, put the cherry on top with his beautiful ethereal mix.”
