Catherine May & Andrew Allen: Blue

Catherine May & Andrew Allen: Blue

15th October 2020

This gig is for a seated audience.

Catherine May (soprano) and Andrew Allen (guitar) are joined by Tim Pells (guitar), Michael Allen (percussion) and Mary Pells (cello) for a performance of Joni Mitchell’s Blue album.

Blue is one of the most highly regarded albums of the past 50 years. Most of the songs have become standards and have been performed and recorded countless times. The album is however rarely performed as a whole. Every song is a gem but the striking thing about this album is the way that it makes such a strong cycle of songs. Blue is an intimate and soulful set of songs in which Joni Mitchell spoke directly about her inner thoughts, cares and conflicts. It was met with immediate success when first released in 1971 and has grown in significance over the intervening years.

Catherine May and Andrew Allen formed their duo in 2018 to explore the repertoire for voice and guitar. They are particularly interested in exploring the eclectic and unique ways that the guitar and voice have worked together both historically and in contemporary music. Tim Pells and Andrew Allen have been performing classical guitar duos together since 2008. The idea for this project started with a performance at the Headgate Theatre in 2017 when Tim, Andrew and Catherine performed A Case of You.

Catherine, Andrew and Tim all come from Western Canada so this is an exciting opportunity to explore and celebrate the work of the greatest singer songwriter from Saskatchewan.
