December 3rd (Sunday) at 2:00 pm: The Tuckamore Festival, with support from The Canada Council, will feature Timothy Steeves and Nancy Dahn performing new music by young Newfoundland composers. Paired with these pieces will be monologues entitled "What Was Needed Most", written and recited by Robert Chafe, on the subject of pre-confederation Newfoundland.
Performed by Juno award-winning Duo Concertante (Nancy Dahn, violin; Timothy Steeves, piano), emerging cellist Amy Collyer-Holmes, and celebrated playwright Robert Chafe, What Was Needed Most is a unique musical and dramatic piece that celebrates Newfoundlanders and Labradorians in Canada and reflects the voices, hopes, dreams, music, and stories of its communities. The foundation of this collaboration is uncovered in the collected stories and music from across the province, and brings to light the threads that bind us all together. Robert Chafe (Artistic Fraud) has explored the rugged beauty of our province, gathering original tales from a variety of individuals and weaving an intimate depiction of life in pre-confederation Newfoundland and Labrador. New music has been commissioned from three alumni of the Tuckamore Festival, Duane Andrews, Bekah Simms, and Aiden Hartery. Their music, inspired by the rich traditions of their home, illuminates the subtext of Chafe's intimate writing, accompanying the audience on their journey through time and place, as they bring to light What Was Needed Most. Tuckamore Travels will bring What Was Needed Most to regions previously visited by Robert Chafe, giving audiences the unique opportunity to experience a performance they helped create. Following performances, audience members will be invited to share their reflections on the impact of the piece.
