News  Notes from Alley


Tidings concert-and-more documentary coming ~ February 26


With snow falling on both of Canada's coasts, those places Allison Crowe calls home, in drifts word - and a few screen caps - from an upcoming video-documentary on "Tidings". Newfoundland-based film-maker Peter Buckle helms the production which focuses on Allison's melding of the sacred and secular in “songs of the season”. PB Productions' crew filmed Allison in concert at the First United Church in Corner Brook, NL. Graciously supported with a grant from the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council, this concert-and-more doc promises naturalness and authenticity, hallmarks of the musician at its centre, and a context, both, Canadian and universal.

"Allison Crowe’s resonant, rich, gorgeous voice seems as much a manifestation of Christmas as an instrument for singing holiday songs," notes 1 Heck of a Guy's Allan Showalter in "It's Beginning to Sound a Lot Like Allison Crowe" @ And, Stephen Smysnuik, writing in Whistler, BC's The Pique, offers an alpine view: "Crowe's voice is as much a manifestation of Christmas spirit today as Bing Crosby's was in 1942. It's as warm as an open fire; as gorgeous as snow-frosted evergreens; as tender as that hug you give your mother on Christmas day."
