One Night Only: Live at The Registry

PENDERECKI STRING QUARTET meets QUINSIN NACHOFF
Jazz meets Classics & Beyond

PSQ is one of Canada’s finest, and certainly most adventurous classical ensembles. Wilfrid Laurier University’s Quartet In Residence carry a full teaching load, while also keeping a busy performing schedule. The quartet features violinists Jerzy Kaplanek and Jeremy Bell, violist Christine Vlajk, and cellist Katie Schailkjer. From Mozart, to Bartok, to Zappa, this group is fearless. The last time they appeared at The Registry was with Jane Bunnett’s renowned Spirits of Havana, featuring pianist Hilario Duran. The PSQ return in a collaboration with the remarkable New York based, Canadian chamber jazz composer and sax player Quinsin Nachoff and his trio, featuring drummer Dan Weiss, and bassist Mark Helias.

Annie Patterson, Peter Blood & Guests

Annie Patterson, Peter Blood & Guests

Posted by on May 30, 2015 in Events, Folk Night, Registry Events | 0 comments

Please Note: Ian Tamblyn was originally scheduled for this date, but has since been cancelled. Peter Blood and Annie Patterson were originally scheduled for April 18, 2015, but were moved to this date. Tickets purchased for the April 18 Blood & Patterson Folk Night concert can still be redeemed at this event. For exchanges or refunds on tickets purchased through Centre in the Square, please call 519-578-1570. For exchanges or refunds on tickets purchased through Jack Cole – and for all other questions and concerns – please email jhcole@mgl.ca.

Peter Blood and Annie Patterson have played a central role in helping to create a quiet revolution of group singing in North America in recent years. They have spent decades honing their skills as songleaders in schools, camps, churches, conferences, folk song clubs and festivals. Groups in all these settings have treasured their uncanny ability to choose songs that are fun and inspiring, to teach these songs to groups of all ages, and to get them engaged in spirited group singing.

They used this wealth of songleading experience to create a completely unique song collection entitled Rise Up Singing. Their book contains a wonderful mix of 1200 songs from Beatles to Broadway, from spirituals to carols, and from kids songs to songs of peace and justice. A true underground best-seller, the collection has sold over a million copies since its publication in 1988 with a minimum of publicity, promotion or marketing. Pete Seeger (who penned the introduction to RUS) has said that their songbook is making “a qualitative difference in music in America.”

Hundreds of community groups, including the Old Chestnuts Song Circle here in Kitchener, get together regularly for “singarounds” using the Blood-Pattersons’ songbook. In the decades since it has been published, the songbook has taken on a central role in the folk music community throughout North America.

They are currently working on the creation of a new songbook, Rise Again, with words & guitar chords to 1200 more songs, and the Old Chestnuts is proud to have had a hand in the selection and arrangement of songs in the new book. Many favourites of the local song circle, that were completely unknown to Annie and Peter, have been included. The new book is scheduled for release in the spring of 2015, and it is fervently hoped that it will be available at this concert.

The concert will also feature guests. Composers of songs in Rise Again are being invited to attend to perform their songs. Several – many of whom have performed for Folk Night – have already confirmed their participation and more are expected. This will be a very special night!
