Live local music is on the menu for Snack Sessions, Manitoba Music’s music video series. Streamed via Facebook Live, the project features four buzz-worthy emerging Manitoba acts playing some delicious tunes from the Manitoba Music environment, fueled by some local nibbles and sips. Music fans can also get to know the performers with in-depth band profiles on manitobamusic.com. Snack Sessions is made possible by the support of Corus Entertainment.
Raine Hamilton writes resonant, acoustic chamber folk with an otherworldly edge, and a lyric presence that cuts deep. Prism-clear vocals and strings; A combination of vocal agility and power.
Raine’s new album, Night Sky, tips between the earthly and the otherworldly; it is anchored in relatable lived experience, while reaching into the space just beyond, thinning the veil between here and there, affording safe passage to the rough and beautiful places. Her ethereal voice and lyrics are at the forefront of these powerful and relatable tunes, written both in English and in French. Alongside cello + double bass, and with Raine on violin or guitar, these songs have a moving string quartet feel with a cosmic reach.
Raine is also a charming and funny storyteller, pairing her vulnerable tunes with engaging story intros. Raine believes that music is for everyone, and that we all have something to share. An experienced educator, Raine offers workshops in songwriting and fiddle tune writing (EN/FR). Raine also offers concerts with American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation, to help make live music and the community that comes with it accessible to the Deaf community.
