Kevin Closs is an independent artist from Manitoulin Island. Since 1990 he has worked as a recording and performing artist, releasing eleven independent albums and touring across the country. His music has been featured in the soundtrack of Hard Rock Medical, Survivorman, The Jane Show and in a number of films. An excellent fingerpicker and a clever lyricist, Closs is a versatile guitarist who has turned his hand to many styles. He has toured with Charlie Major, but his own style is far more folk than country. But we’re bringing Kevin in because of his latest project: In Deep reflects his time travelling up North as a musician-in-residence and Zodiac driver. He’s worked in sonic textures from the sounds of ice, ships at sea, and even the melody from a bird song. I can’t wait to see what his latest travels have inspired.
Our opener for this show will be Flying Hórses, a nouveau-classical solo pianist.
