April 17 - The Banks of Newfoundland: Traditional Ballads
featuring Matthew Byrne
Matthew Byrne was born into a family of music makers from Placentia Bay, Newfoundland, and his live performance offers honest interpretations of folk music delivered with polished guitar work and powerful vocals. Tonight he shares the narrative ballads that were passed on to him by his family, and tells the stories of how the songs made their way to him and his parents before him.
OST is very pleased to announce the launch of a new series!
(un)told is a monthly Ottawa event featuring original stories told live. Candid and heartfelt, whimsical and extraordinary, the (un)told open mic features original 5 minute stories told in an intimate setting without notes, sets, or props.
Each show starts with a theme. Tellers explore the theme, often in unexpected ways. It’s something akin to getting together with our most enigmatic and introspective friends to give those disparate episodes in our heads a place to connect through the spoken word.
