February 26 Folkus Concert: Shawna Caspi

with special guest Amanda Lowe W

Shawna Caspi is a singer, poet, painter and fingerstyle guitarist. Blessed with a warm, supple voice, and mistress of fingerstyle guitar thanks to hundreds of hours of practice, Caspi is known for her incisive, clever, song writing and warm presence on stage. Caspi – a connector of curious humans – spent years on the road playing solo shows at festivals and in concert halls, train cars, backyards, and living rooms, drawing energy from shifting landscapes and long drives through Canada and the United States. Shawna returns with her fifth album, Hurricane Coming, a collection of raw, deeply personal songs set against a backdrop of colourful cinematic soundscapes. Shawna also created a series of abstract paintings inspired by the songs on the album, seamlessly combining her work as a musician and visual artist.

Opening for Shawna Caspi will be Amanda Lowe Warnakulasuriya. Born in Sri Lanka, raised on Prince Edward Island and now residing in Ottawa, ON – this multi-lingual singer-songwriter creates a strong stage presence with her clear voice, ringing guitar, and a dash of reverb.

This performance, like all Folkus concerts this season, will also be live-streamed from the Almonte Old Town Hall. The same venue and gorgeous acoustics, the sound quality will be exceptional for anyone choosing to watch from home. In-person and virtual tickets available. Anyone purchasing / holding an in-person ticket will have access to the streamed concert should they decide that in-person attendance doesn’t feel comfortable on the day.

The cost of a virtual ticket to watch the streamed concert is a household ticket price, meaning if there are two or four of you watching together, it’s still just $20. If you wish to purchase more than one ticket out of support, however, we and the artists you are supporting thank you very much!
