Raine Hamilton String Trio has shared the video for ‘Starlight’ from their sophomore album Night Sky, out on March 23.
This follows the release of ‘Lift Me Up’;
Hamilton will hold an album release party at the West End Cultural Centre in her hometown of Winnipeg on March 24. The gig will feature ASL interpretation and gender inclusive washrooms. The show will open with n artists’ circle, featuring Abigail Lapell, Nic Dyson, Gabriela Ocejo, and ASL poetry by Jordan Sangalang.
Hamilton believes that concerts should be an inclusive experience and offers gigs with ASL interpretation. She also offers songwriting and fiddle tune writing workshops in English and French.
“The night sky, for me, is a symbol of the beyond. It is light in the darkness,” Hamilton said in a statement “It is stillness and vulnerability. Imagery of the night sky appears again and again in these songs, the title of the album making itself known.”
She’s toured Canada extensively performing with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra three times as well as a gig in a cave and playing her way across Canada on VIA Rail.
