Appearing at the renowned West End Cultural Centre with her biggest band yet, Raine Hamilton takes the stage to debut her new 10 song album Past Your Past.

Accompanied by bass, drums, cello, violin, guitar and banjo, and joined on stage by  free-writing poet Christoff Engbrecht, Raine breathes life into her stories and songs.

Be lifted up with up-tempo tunes like bluegrass-tinged Time and independence-infused Knots in Wood. Be transported to a deeply honest place with ethereal, heartbreaking gems like January, and Paper Cranes. Each song has a story, a relatable tale of love, of growth, of fortune and its misses… or a kind of embarrassing but funny story set in a highschool library.

Christoff Engbrecht of local poetry collective Poor Tree will join Raine on stage, writing live in real time, reinventing the songs and stories into poetic works, to be shared as the night goes on. A songwriter’s circle will open the evening, including the phenomenal Ingrid Gatin, Allison Degroot, JD Edwards and Christoff.

Raine promises safe passage to the rough and beautiful places; to courageous transformation, bravely cutting through to the heart.

Expect to laugh.

Expect to cry.

Raine is probably shorter than you’re thinking, so expect that, too.
