“A Corner Brook Tidings” World Film Premiere

Peter Buckle’s documentary, “A Corner Brook Tidings” – a film featuring Allison Crowe and you, has its World Premiere this weekend. There’s been a sighting of a man on a sleigh, pulled by what appear to be reindeer, or, maybe daschunds… on a snowy rooftop – just before this trailer appeared down the online chimney…

A Corner Brook Tidings

World Film Premiere

It’s coming on “Tidings” – and that means the voice of Allison Crowe rings out traditional favourites, Christmas carols such as “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear”, “In the Bleak Midwinter”, and “The First Noel”, alongside the modern canon of Joni Mitchell, Patty Griffin, Lennon & McCartney and original song selections including the elegiac “Arthur”, and the epic, foot-stomping, “Disease”.

Allison’s just wrapped up her second engagement of this year with Canada’s amazing Royal Winnipeg Ballet – performing songs of Leonard Cohen. With the love experienced on the dance stage, as well as recent European concert dates and this Summer’s Gros Morne Theatre Festival hit, “Newfoundland Vinyl”, still touching souls – it’s time to rally a repertoire that decks us all in comfort and joy whatever life’s circumstances. On Friday, December 14 in the ACC Theatre is this year’s live “Tidings” concert.

Saturday, December 15, the lights go down in the ACC Lobby for 7 pm and 9 pm screenings of the Peter Buckle-directed documentary ~ “A Corner Brook Tidings” – “a film featuring Allison Crowe and you”. (A live album, “Tidings Concert”, has just been released on iTunes + as a sister project. http://allisoncrowe.com/news.html )

Assistance for the World Premiere showings is provided by the College of the North Atlantic in Corner Brook and the CNA’s Recording Arts Program, Bay St. George Campus, Stephenville.

“It’s Beginning to Sound a Lot Like Allison Crowe”

Travelling by boat right now – with internet access as variable as the seas. So, until the return to land ho, here’s a ho, ho, ho – festive post from “1 Heck of a Guy” – Santa’s favourite blog written by a psychiatrist that is rife with Leonard Cohen-based hilarity, a love story, essays on broomcorn, and proposals for a county seal featuring Dick Tracy: “It’s Beginning to Sound a Lot Like Allison Crowe“.
