first_aid_kit.jpg

We were a little worried when the Halifax Jazz Festival was still conspicuously silent this week, having announced its big gets in January of previous years. But it was all for naught—today HJF made its initial lineup announcement, and it was worth the wait.

Swedish sister duo First Aid Kit will headline the waterfront stage (formerly and forever The Tent) on Wednesday, July 10, with Tim Baker opening—good news for anyone who got shut out of his St. Matt's shows in May. The next night's show sees Bahamas and The Barr Brothers chill-rockin the area.

A new venue this year is St. Paul's Anglican Church in Grand Parade, in which the Liebman/Murley Quartet will play on Thursday, July 11.

Festival passes are on sale now, with individual tickets for these shows dropping Friday, March 29 at 10am. Stay tuned for more announcements and enjoy the best song from Ruins now:

Scott Long leaves Music Nova Scotia

The executive director departs after 10 years for the Tattoo.

Posted By on Fri, Feb 22, 2019 at 12:11 PM

scottq9450.jpg
Music Nova Scotia has announced that its executive director Scott Long has stepped down after a decade's tenure.

"When I took the job a lot of those issues that the industry is now facing, they weren’t at the forefront at the time," says Long of the inclusion and diversity pushes in the cultural (and all) industries in recent years. "Probably close to 50  percent of my time there, those issues just weren’t talked about a lot or enough, though they were bubbling under, obviously.

"A big part of my job over the past few years has been working on those issues. It’s hard work and it’s ongoing and it’s never-ending, obviously, because there’s so much to be done. We’re just scratching the surface. The issues we’re facing as a business overall on a worldwide level—lack of venues, the impact of streaming services, how the business models are changing—a lot of those things haven’t been on the radar. It’s been very interesting, very enlightening. Those challenges are difficult and they require a lot of work. It’s helped me personally in developing myself professionally."

MNS's operations manager Lisa Stitt is interim executive director while the board of directors searches for Long's replacement.

"You have to really truly love music," Long advises any potential applicants. "It’s the biggest thing. Sure you need to have chops as an administrator, making sure you have investment and funding and sponsorship. But you have to be passionate about the music here. That’s what this organization is really about at the end of the day—to champion our artists the best way we can with the resources we have."

Long, who played bagpipes in Ashley MacIsaac's band during the "Sleepy Maggie" heyday, is now managing director and executive producer of the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo.

The Rolston String Quartet’s but a dream

Toronto’s prize-winning super-group of an ensemble wants to move you.

Posted By on Thu, Feb 7, 2019 at 4:45 AM

rolston_string_quartet_bo_huang.jpg

Cecilia Concerts presents: The Rolston String Quartet
Sunday, February 10, 2pm
Maritime Conservatory of Performing Arts,
6199 Chebucto Road
$10-$35,
ceciliaconcerts.ca

It's all strings attached when the highly acclaimed Rolston String Quartet visits Halifax this weekend. The only ensemble to be featured on CBC's 2016 list of Hot Canadian Classical Musicians Under 30, the group's here to take audiences on a sonic journey.

Touring internationally since forming in 2013, the quartet is comprised of Luri Lee, Hezekiah Leung, Jonathan Lo and Emily Kruspe. Initially meeting through various music festivals, the young players "decided to give playing together a shot," says cellist Lo. And it's a shot that paid off. The ensemble has gone on to take up many residencies, win various awards—like first prize at the Banff International String Quartet Competition—and garner praise from the likes of Ludwig van Toronto, which heralded The RSQ as having "maturity and cohesion rivalling the best string quartets in the world."

"It's really helped open a lot of doors for us in terms of exposure and performing in places like North America and Europe," says Lo. "We've been able to travel to incredible places, meet new audiences and have incredible collaborations with musicians—some of whom have been our mentors, and some who we've formed incredible friendships with. It's a dream come true."

Bringing that dream to Halifax, the quartet is stringing audiences along on a musical adventure which includes works by Beethoven, Haydn, Schafer and more. "We try not to be pigeonholed," says Lo of the group's repertoire, which includes modern composers as well. "Our guiding ethos is that we will always gravitate towards music we feel strongly and passionate about."

Currently on tour and finishing up a Tchaikovsky-themed album dropping later this year, the foursome hopes concert attendees come prepared for the vibrant new energy they're weaving into the classical world.

"Audiences who are open to exploring their imaginations will take something really unique from it," says Lo. "I hope they're moved in a way that they may not have expected to have been from our music."
