She Sings as She Flies • Revisiting the Helen Creighton Song Collection

November 3, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

She Sings as She Flies • Revisiting the Helen Creighton Song Collection was conceived by first cousins and longtime creative collaborators Mary Jane Lamond and Laurel MacDonald as a special production of their Patchwork vocal performance project.

She Sings as She Flies features Mary Jane and Laurel performing songs from the Gaelic and English language traditions. Joining them are Nicole LeBlanc, Kirsten Olivia and Naomi Dawn Poulette, singing selections from the Acadian, African Nova Scotian, and Mi’kmaq communities respectively. The songs are integrated with archival recordings and images, live vocal looping, sound design and video stage projections.

The production looks not only at the rich legacy of the music itself, but also poses questions regarding the circumstances of Helen Creighton’s work, and the social and cultural environment then, and now. She Sings as She Flies is a groundbreaking new production by five uniquely talented Nova Scotian singers, illustrating the richness, diversity and complex history behind this unique folksong collection.

She Sings as She Flies has been made possible through the generous support of the Nova Scotia 150 Forward Fund and the Helen Creighton Folklore Society.
