Fern Hill Concerts: An Evening with Devon Sproule
Join us at the historic Woolen Mills Chapel for an evening featuring the music of the wonderful and talented Devon Sproule
"I'm imagining a golden string that is connecting everything but especially, beings where love has been. I've imagined it again and again so often, it isn't even imagining, it is making it happen."
Devon Sproule's music welcomes the magical and the tangible. It celebrates human complication in the language of nature. It is North American music with weirdo roots.
In Summer 2015, she recorded songs from a new collection, The Gold String, in Yukon and Nova Scotia. Besides Canada and America, Sproule also tours regularly in Europe and has traveled with her music to Africa and Australia.
"Sproule's lyrics glance off each other arrestingly, juxtaposing images." (Financial Times). "Her quirky affectations bring to mind Bjork, and forays into the dark, Michelle Shocked." (Village Voice)
Cellist and singer Wes Swing will open the evening.
