Tomson Highway: SONGS IN THE KEY OF CREE

Venue: Burlington PAC

   

Songs in the Key of Cree is a compilation of songs written over the past thirty years by Cree-Canadian playwright, songwriter and pianist Tomson Highway. The 12 songs in the show are taken from five of his musicals – Rose, The Incredible Adventures of Mary Jane Mosquito, The (Post) Mistress, The Sage, the Dancer, and the Fool and his latest new musical as yet to be titled. Think Cole Porter and Kurt Weill…with Cree lyrics. Songs will be sung in Cree, English, and French by extraordinary Peruvian-Canadian cabaret singer, Patricia Cano, accompanied by jazz saxophonist Marcus Ali, and by Tomson Highway himself on the piano.

 

“…the man is as ridiculously talented as a musician as he is a scribe.” – Toronto Star
