What is the must-see show?
A triple bill of Gold/Sun with Evelyn C. White & The New Horizons Baptist Church Choir and Kama La Mackerel, held at All Nations Christian Reformed Church (2535 Robie Street) on June 9 at 7:30 p.m.
One of the country’s most exciting and innovative musicians, Nick Dourado has made music with artists like
Polaris Lido Pimienta Prize winner and cult legend Beverly Glenn-Copeland. Here, Dourado performs as Gold/Sun, headlining the opening night of EVERYSEEKER with, as the festival puts it, “a sonic exposition of resonance and elastic potential in space using acoustic instruments, in response to the banality of manipulation and simulation.”
Before that, however, famed Halifax journalist Evelyn C. White pays tribute to Whitney Houston alongside the Choir of the New Horizons Baptist Church, while Kama La Mackerel opens the show with a performance based on their award-winning poetry.
