Rory Taillon & Brooklyn Doran
Ottawa based alternative-folk musician Rory Taillon brings his unique style and dynamic voice to our Patchwork stage on Sunday, June 11th. Standing alone on the stage with his guitar and suitcase kick-drum, Rory has been known to take audiences on an emotional ride throughout his set from exciting and explosive highs to devastating and crushing lows. The classically trained singer can go from whisper to a rafter rumbling roar while painting heartfelt images with his words. Explore some videos of his powerful performances.
Rory will be sharing the stage with folk artist Brooklyn Doran. Brooklyn Doran (she/her) is a queer singer-songwriter originally from the heart of Northwestern Ontario, who has been a staple of the Toronto folk scene for over ten years. Doran’s unique sound weaves song and storytelling; the polarity between her music and personality create a harmonious blend of wit and humour contrasted by vulnerable lyricism and haunting melody. For a sneak preview of her style, watch some videos.
Tickets for this duo-performance are $25.
Location: Patchwork House Concerts, 30 First Ave, Bedford
NOTE: Patchwork is a house concert series, i.e. we present concerts in our living room. For all shows the artist(s) take the door. We provide the stage, chairs and hopefully a room filled with eager listeners. We will provide a few snacks and soft drinks will be available; otherwise it is BYOB (feel free to bring what inspires you!). Bringing music-loving-friends and visiting family members is strongly encouraged.


8:30 p.m.
Vivek Shraya - Baby, You're Projecting
Vivek Shraya is an artist whose body of work crosses the boundaries of music, literature, visual art, theatre, and film. Her album Part-Time Woman was nominated for the Polaris Music Prize, her music on HBO Max's Sort Of is nominated for a Canadian Screen Award, and her best-selling book I'm Afraid of Men was heralded by Vanity Fair as 'cultural rocket fuel.' She is also the founder of the award-winning publishing imprint VS. Books, which supports emerging BIPOC writers.
A seven-time Lambda Literary Award finalist, Vivek has been a brand ambassador for MAC Cosmetics and Pantene. She is a director on the board of the Tegan and Sara Foundation, and is currently adapting her debut play, How to Fail as a Popstar, as a digital series with CBC.
After twenty years of releasing music independently, Vivek will make her label debut with Baby, You're Projecting, a visual album coming out on Mint Records in May 2023. Eastern Front Theatre is thrilled to host her only East Coast date, as part of our STAGES Theatre Festival.
This event is pay-what-you-can with options for $15, $25, or $35.
Location: Alderney Landing, 2 Octherloney Street, Dartmouth
