Uncommon Ground: searching for new sounds - Harimaya Adhikari (vocals, harmonium), Sagar Khatiwada (tabla), Scott Kiefner (bass), Matt Langley (saxophones), and David Surette (guitar, mandolins) Join us for a premiere performance of this ensemble, composed of representatives of the school’s jazz, folk, and Nepali classical musicians, in a program of compositions and improvisations reflecting their traditions and their adventuresome spirit.
Our good neighbor to the north Canada has produced some of the greatest singer songwriters, such as Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, Ferron, Robbie Robertson (The Band) and Stan Rogers, just to name a few! Susie and David first performed this show back in both 2011 and 2012, as one of the many collaborative shows they developed during an eight-year run of Cabin Fever winter concerts in Rollinsford. O Canada! was one of the most popular ever, and we are very excited to be bringing it to you again at The Dance Hall, one of the Seacoast’s premiere listening rooms.
For this show, as on the previous O Canada! concerts, Susie & David will be joined by their old trail buddy Kent Allyn on piano, bass, and electric guitar, for a memorable evening of the very best of Canadian singer/songwriters, encompassing folk and rock, contemporary and traditional, roots and branches.
