Harbourfront Theatre in Summerside recently announced that their Backstage Pass Series will return starting this fall. The series began in the summer of 2016 and quickly became a patron favourite.
Executive Director of Harbourfront, Kieran Keller, explains, “Our Backstage Pass Series is all about encountering the performing arts from a different perspective and in an up-close, cozy, interactive setting. The entire show—audience included—is on the stage experiencing the performance with a panoramic view of the theatre in the background.”
For the fall portion of the 2018/2019 series, Harbourfront welcomes folk powerhouse pair The Small Glories to the theatre on October 13. The duo has built a buzz around their tight harmonies, authenticity, visceral live performances and equally well-matched guitar prowess that doesn’t come around often. The Winnipeg Free Press asks, “Can two singer-songwriters be better than one? Yes, emphatically, yes, if the two in question are Cara Luft and JD Edwards… It’s our loss they didn’t [join forces] sooner… It’s magic.”
Then on October 24, blues and roots artist and guitarist Lloyd Spiegel takes the stage. Spiegel is a trailblazer at the forefront of modern blues and one of his country’s most recognized guitarists, recently being named in Australian Guitar Magazine’s list of the top 50 Australian guitarists of all time. His live performance blends jaw-dropping guitar expertise with a commanding voice, powerful song writing and storytelling to deliver a complete concert experience, launching him onto theatre and festival stages across the globe. He has also played for the greats, supporting the likes of Ray Charles, Bob Dylan and Etta James on tour.
Limited seating is available due to the format, so please reserve tickets well in advance. The Small Glories perform October 13, 7:30 pm, and Lloyd Spiegel performs October 24, 7:30 pm. To learn more, visit harbourfronttheatre.com or call their Box Office at 902-888-2500.
