The equinox is a time of balance, where light and darkness are held in equal measure as our axis tilts and we circle round the sun. Cello and piano, song and composition, psyche and sound, listening to the colors of a waking earth. We are poised. We evoke. Cloaked in starry winter nights, we step forward into the sunshine of spring.
Leslie Hudson is what happens when Tori Amos and Loreena McKennitt swap set lists, and folktales become character studies of the female psyche. A touring musician from Stratford ON with piano in tow, this vocally dynamic powerhouse performer weaves song out of story into a tapestry of musical styles and feminist perspectives. Drawing inspiration from her own journey to her love of Star Trek to world mythology to her relationship with the unseen, she brings poignance and punch to every performance and lays bare the complexities of the inner lives we live.
