Event Information


TOM WILSON: Beautiful Scars - A Symphonic Literary Recital

Venue: Burlington PAC

   

Storyteller, songwriter, performer, visual artist and three-time JUNO Award winning Canadian musician Tom Wilson teams up with a 9-piece chamber orchestra for a special multi-disciplinary literary and musical event. Tom uses words and music from his bestselling memoir Beautiful Scars to tell the story of his search for identity, and the surprising discovery of his Mohawk heritage.  It is a musical journey inspired by a family history of carefully guarded secrets and profound acts of forgiveness.

Featuring original music by Tom along with works by history’s greatest musical minds, Tom Wilson and the chamber orchestra present a moving and at times very funny night of steeltown secrets, Mohawk skywalkers and inspirational art.  Hamilton native Tom Wilson has performed as a member of Junkhouse, Blackie & The Rodeo Kings as well as his most recent incarnation, Lee Harvey Osmond.
