B.C. REQUIRES PROOF OF VACCINATION TO ATTEND ALL INDOOR EVENTS. AT THE TIME OF THIS PERFORMANCE, THE CAPITOL REQUIRES TICKET HOLDERS TO BE FULLY VACCINATED. By requiring full vaccination on this earlier date, the Capitol is permitted an increased audience size, so the decision has been made to implement this prerequisite in advance of the Oct 24th provincial mandate. We hold patrons' well-being as paramount and will continue to apply a socially distanced seating map which includes vacant seats in front, behind, and to the sides of audience members to ensure their safety and comfort. PHO also indicates that masks are mandatory in all indoor spaces.
Join Allison along with guitarist Mike Rud, pianist Dave Restivo, bassist Jill McKenna, and violinist Don Macdonald for a celebration of themes of duality: Loss and love, freedom and captivity, chaos and hope, waking and dreaming, dark and light.
Songs with poetry by Langston Hughes and Sara Bareilles, songs by Billie Eillish and about Harriet Tubman, songs in English and Yorubá, and, for good measure, some Joni Mitchell and Björk...
