Crowe lands in Ladysmith
Allison Crowe is bringing with her a wave of good tidings for her annual Christmas Tidings Show.
Her concert comes the First United Church in Ladysmith on Dec. 3 at 7 p.m.
“It’s a bit of a mix of Christmas music ... and then some originals and all sorts of things.”
Crowe said she would best describe her sound as an eclectic mix of things including folk, rock, jazz and blues.
Crowe will be flying solo for the shows, so there will be a lot of acoustic piano and some guitar.
The Tidings Show is somewhat of a Christmas tradition, now in its eighth year.
“It’s a lot of fun for me,” said the Nanaimo-born performer, who now lives on the other coast in Newfoundland.
“I can come, visit home and see all my friends and family,” said Crowe. “It’s a lot of fun for me.”
The concert is a family, all-ages show.
Opening the night will be Lena Birtwistle.
“She’s got a great voice and really cool original songs and does some really neat covers,” said Crowe.
Crowe is no stranger to the music scene with seven albums available.
Anyone who wants to hear some of Crowe’s work can visit her website, www.allisoncrowe.com or her Facebook group.
“Pretty much anywhere that has music up, I’m there,” laughed Crowe.
