Watermark Theatre is thrilled to announce a spring concert, Dreamin’ of Spring, featuring two dynamic east coast artists. Meaghan Blanchard (PEI) and Gabrielle Papillon (NS). Meaghan Blanchard and Gabrielle Papillon came together in 2017 as part of a Music PEI songwriting project. Their pairing created a magic that the two felt so strongly about, they created a songwriting duo that continues on. They will each perform solo sets and then sing a couple of their co-written songs.
Watermark Theatre will partner with sponsor North Rustico Home Hardware Building Centre to present Dreamin’ of Spring on Friday, March 16, 2018.
Desserts will be served at intermission; provided by creative North Rustico caterers, The Yellow House!
“When you come to your knees / when you hold what you need / you will know what to keep,” sings Gabrielle Papillon near the end of her sixth, most adventurous album. Hear it as a promise, hear it as a mantra, hear it as a weary warning from someone who’s been there—the sweeping and heart-piercing “Keep the Fire” album is packed full of thoughts like this: wise and poignant, empathetic and understanding, open to interpretation. Papillon’s music, too, is now open to interpretation—though it remains confidently, almost nonchalantly rooted in folk strumming and gentle vocal phrasings, on Keep the Fire she has embraced her pop leanings and pushed them to the forefront. Gabrielle’s awards include 2015 Music Nova Scotia Recording of the Year.
