Raine Hamilton Trio w/ ASL Poetry by Tamyka Bullen
Live Concert, Feb 7, 2019
Burlington Performing Arts Centre 440 Locust St, Burlington, ON
American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation provided
Canadian Folk Music Award winner Raine Hamilton will take the stage Feb 7th, performing a live concert of songs and stories with ASL interpretation. ASL poet Tamyka Bullen will open the show with original ASL poetry.
Raine believes that art is for everyone, and wants to see the arts become accessible to all. In consultation and collaboration with the Deaf community, she started performing ASL interpreted concerts in 2017 in her hometown of Winnipeg. Increasingly, she has been able to perform ASL interpreted concerts in other communities across Canada, and she plans to do that more and more. Raine explains: “Art is powerful, and I want everyone who feels drawn to art and music to have access to it, and to the community that comes with it.”
Raine’s songs and stories tip between the earthly and the otherworldly; She shares art that is vulnerable and anchored in lived experience. At the same time she reaches and stretches, looking towards the beautiful parts of life.
The concert will be fully interpreted into ASL, and anyone who is interested is invited.
