NEW SOUNDS: with Andre Fenton / Sam Wilson Duo + Electro Jacque Therapy
At The Khyber Centre for the Arts - 1880 Hollis St. Halifax NS

Join us for a night of NEW SOUNDS with two exciting acts!
First up is the duo of poet and author Andre Fenton partnering with guitarist and composer Sam Wilson. This will be a spontaneous collaboration of music and word, combining for an exciting new form.

Andre Fenton is an award winning spoken word artist & filmmaker who has represented Halifax at 7 national poetry slams across Canada. He is currently on the board of directors of the Writers Federation of Nova Scotia and a member at large on the board of Spoken Word Canada. He is an author of two books. Ode to Teen Angst and his new YA novel, Worthy of Love which was published by Formac. He is based in the Halifax area

Sam Wilson: Described as laid back and melodic, Sam’s style is influenced by jazz, as well as folk, progressive rock, and finger-style guitar. After releasing her first solo, experimental, electric guitar EP Into a Heart in 2017, Sam is ready to unveil her first full-length album, Groundless Apprehensions. A self-described “sonic memoir”, Sam has created compositions that reflect on the past and process it through music.

Electro Jacque Therapy: Jacques Mindreau Music makes music for the soul and the human spirit. His new solo project, Electro Jacques Therapy, uses violin and lyrical voice to combine new sounds that seem otherworldly into vocal and string orchestrations. Jacques has performed and toured with countless musicians all over Canada and the world. He also composes music for film, dance, and now theatre including the feature documentary “Modified” a story about the impact of GMOs on society and the critically acclaimed play, “One Discordant Violin”, an adaptation of a Yann Martel story directed by Ann Marie Kerr and Anthony Black. Jacques is the co-founder of the bands Krasnogorsk, Beautiful Wild Animals and OQO. He currently lives in Cape Breton where he co-hosts the annual Margaree Harvest Festival in October
