Solo acoustic concert
With opening performance by Antigonish musicians Moira & Claire
July 24, 2021
T. Thomason is a pop artist living between Halifax and Toronto. T. has impressed fans with his emotional and highly energetic live performances for over a decade at festivals like The Great Escape, FOCUS Wales, Parliament Hill’s Canada Day, POP Montreal, Pride Toronto, Reeperbahn Festival, Canadian Music Week, Milwaukee Summerfest, and more. The lead up to the release of T.’s self-titled album in September 2019 was a roller coaster. He was a winner on season 2 of CTV’s The Launch, which landed his launched single “Hope” on top 40 radio, Spotify Editorial playlists like New Music Friday Canada, and put T. on stage at the Bell Centre with Quebec’s reigning pop queen and his mentor, Marie-Mai. T.’s 2019 self-titled album was described by Halifax’s The Coast as “equal parts scar tissue and sparkles”. Deeply vulnerable and honest, it is a must-hear for anyone who’s wondered who they are and what’s to come. In 2020 T. released his “Part II Project”, a series of reimagined versions of singles from his album, featuring mentors and champions of his career. Rose Cousins (King of Spades Part II), Ria Mae (Loser Part II), Ivan Coyote (Birdsong Part II), and Sarah McLachlan (Bliss Part II) each lent their unique talents to the project. The singles garnered praise from Tom Power on CBC’s q, American Songwriter Magazine, and CTV’s eTalk. Loved by Canadian music superstars and audiences of all ages, genders, and sexualities, T. Thomason is forging a new blueprint for the 21st century singer-songwriter, and we are delighted to welcome him back to the Bauer stage.

ABOUT MOIRA & CLAIRE
Moira & Claire discovered harmony in their early teens on a cross-Canada road-trip while singing to ‘Life is a Highway’ by Tom Cochrane. The folk-pop sister duo from Antigonish haven’t been able to stop since. Infectious harmonies and feel-good vibes permeate their music. They released their first single Your Voice in 2017 and it has reached over 700k streams on Spotify. In November 2020, they released Better Than This which reached #9 on The East’s “Top 100 – Best East Coast Music of 2020”. After releasing a couple more singles in 2021, the sisters plan to release their debut EP early next year.
This concert is a fundraiser for Festival Antigonish Summer Theatre. Proceeds will go towards artist fees and help us mount our outdoor production of Robin Hood: The Great Escape this summer. Thank you for your support!
