1. Upcoming Tours
We are pleased to announce a number of upcoming concert dates and tours with guest artists from outside Canada. For more complete concert details, scroll to the bottom of the page, and expect more information in the coming months.
The first will be in early April with an artist from Mexico named Gudinni Cortina, along with Anne-F Jacques, Elizabeth Millar and Craig Pedersen. We will play April 6th in Montreal and April 7th at the IMOO series in Ottawa, before he heads to the US for some other shows. We highly recommend you check out his work here: http://gudinni-cortina.com/
In early May Sound of the Mountain will be touring with Japanese improvising guitar and daxaphone player Yumiko Yoshimoto. Yoshimoto-san is an incredibly active musician from Tokyo whose idiosyncratic playing style we find incredibly fascinating and interesting to hear. Yumiko will perform with local improvisors on the tour. The tour will be May 1-7, in Montreal, Ottawa, Kingston, Guelph, and Toronto. Visit Yumiko online at https://yoshimotoyumiko.blogspot.com/, or listen to some of her work at https://soundcloud.com/yoshimotoyumiko
Finally, between May 26 and June 2nd, our friend Tim Olive, originally from Saskatchewan, but residing in Japan for many years, will join Anne-F, Elizabeth and Craig for a short tour of Ontario (and Montreal). Stops include Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Hamilton and London. Each night we will take up a different configuration: perhaps Sound of the Mountain, Anne-F & Tim's duo, E. Millar solo, Provisional Mailorder... and others! Tim's work is truly world class and every time we hear and play with him we are delighted by what happens. Visit him online at https://timolive.org and at his label: https://845audio.org/
Again, stay tuned for more details, and scroll down for specific dates and places!
