Songs for Lost Mothers & Fathers

Rachael Kilgour and Ian Fisher present a night of songs in memory of their respective parents. With honesty, tenderness and a touch of humour, the songwriters each navigate the disorientation that comes with the death of a parent. More than a concert, their performance is an invitation to find connection and universality in our loneliest moments.

Rachael Kilgour

Rachael Kilgour is a Canadian-American songwriter and performing artist whose plain-spoken, heart-centered work has endeared her to listeners and fellow artists alike. Her new album, 'My Father Loved Me', was produced by JUNO Award-winning songwriter Rose Cousins and recorded in her late father's native Ontario. In the spare, often gutting language for which she is known, Kilgour gives us a complex portrait of a man as seen through his daughter’s eyes. With unwavering acuity she poses questions about identity, inheritance, and grief, and affirms the value of one ordinary working man’s life to an often indifferent world.  Link to Music

Ian Fisher

Ian Fisher left his home state of Missouri when he was twenty one to roam the streets of Europe for fifteen years.  His music mixes his rural Midwestern American upbringing with a dark delicacy shaped by his time abroad. Simple, yet emotionally complex, he has the acoustic grit of an early Jeff Tweedy with a sentimental pen ready to strike a’la Townes Van Zandt. Fisher has written nearly two thousand songs while touring extensively through Europe, Africa, and North America.  His many albums have earned him praise in such outlets as Rolling Stone, who calls his music “Half Americana & Half Abbey Road-Worthy Pop”.  Link to Music
