Open Voices Community Choir to Host Folk Duo “Kennedy Road”

Published on: 2019/12/17 - in Entertainment

Open Voices Community Choir has announced Canadian singer-songwriters and recording artists Sheila Carabine and Brian MacMillan will perform in Kingston next month, just ahead of the release of their upcoming album.

Two concerts are scheduled for Saturday, January 18 – a matinee at 2pm and an evening performance at 7:30pm – with the “Kennedy Road” singers backed up by the 100-strong Open Voices Community Choir at Cooke’s-Portsmouth United Church, 200 Norman Rogers Drive in Kingston.

“Kennedy Road” tickets are on sale now for $15 ($5 under 18 or underemployed) at Tara Foods, Novel Idea, Brian’s Record Option, choir members, and at the door or purchase online.

Carabine has been performing for the past 16 years in the Juno-nominated folk duo Dala, sharing the stage with artists that include Tom Cochrane, Jann Arden, and Matthew Good. She recently released her “All In” solo album.

MacMillan is a producer, singer-songwriter, and recording artist with three solo albums and has performed with Barenaked Ladies, Wailin’ Jennys, Garth Hudson, John McDermott and Lowest Of The Low.

Speaking about how “Kennedy Road” came together, MacMillan said: “I think it has to do with the chemistry that we have and the trust we have with each other. We also seem to easily find harmonies for each other, so … we both realized it was rare and decided to keep feeding and nurturing it.”
