Olympic Symphonium ‘Chance to Fate’
Shivering Songs presents: The Olympic Symphonium ‘Chance to Fate’ album release with special guests Catherine MacLellan & Jennah Barry in Fredericton and Saint John.
PEI’s Catherine MacLellan will make her long-awaited return to New Brunswick, as the special guest for The Olympic Symphonium’s Chance To Fate album release shows, Thursday May 1st in Saint John and Friday May 2 in Fredericton. MacLellan’s original performances slotted for April 25 in Saint John and April 26 in Fredericton have been postponed until the fall due to unforeseen delays with the new album.
MacLellan’s largely acoustic-driven songs are a welcome fit to The Olympic Symphonium’s contemplative music. As long-time musical friends these artists have had the pleasure of collaborating together on stage and in the studio.
Nova Scotia’s Jennah Barry, who turned heads at this year’s Shivering Songs festival, will also join these shows as special guest and collaborator.
Hitting the road April 4, The Olympic Symphonium will take their fourth studio album, Chance To Fate (March 18, Forward Music Group), to audiences in Eastern Canada and New England before performing at home. Recorded at the legendary, and possibly haunted, Salty Towers Inn over four days, the album marks the first time the band has invited outside voices into the creative process. Produced by Joshua Van Tassel (Great Lake Swimmers, David Myles, Megan Bonnell) and engineered by Brad Perry, the album also sees “No Saving Grace” written and sung by lap-steel player Dennis Goodwin, and “All In Your Head” co-written by Fredericton poet Christopher Goodwin.
