Martha Wainwright is beginning again. The beguiling performer and songwriter returns with Love Will Be Reborn. Not since 2012’s Come Home to Mama has a Martha Wainwright record been so full of original written material. Wainwright’s fifth studio album follows recent years of loneliness and clarity in search of optimism and joy.
In this part of the tour, Martha will be supported by a fantastic opening act, Bernice. Bernice is the project of musician and songwriter Robin Dann and her longtime collaborators Thom Gill (keyboards), Philippe Melanson (e-percussion and drums), Daniel Fortin (bass) and Felicity Williams (voice). Since their beginnings a decade ago, the band has made music which wanders into r&b, neo-soul, and Deerhoofian improvised scrappy tendencies, and coalesces through Robin’s desire to be open with audiences through song and lyric.
Capacity is currently capped at 500 and ticket buyers are required to purchase a minimum of two tickets. All safety regulations in place at the time of the performance will be upheld. Presented with support of the City of New Westminster and the Province of British Columbia.
