Two of English Canada’s most enduring songwriters take the stage for a monumental double bill!
Three-time Juno Award winning songwriter Tom Wilson teams up with the NAC Orchestra for a multi-disciplinary literary and musical performance. In conjunction with his new memoir, Beautiful Scars, Tom uses words and music to tell the story of his search for identity, and of a family history of carefully guarded secrets and profound acts of forgiveness.
With her lilting alto and serpentine melodies, Ottawa’s Lynn Miles furtively holds a vital place within Canadian folk music’s firmament. Paired with the NAC Orchestra, the JUNO award-winner presents gorgeous new works commissioned specifically by NAC Presents! This concert represents the first in our series of commissioned work.
