Raine Hamilton with Bicycle Face and Joanna Hawkins

UMFM Presents

Raine is part prairie songstress, part sto­ry­weaver; Each song has a sto­ry, deliv­ered between songs with humour and grace. Raine invites deep love of the vio­lin into the singer-song­writer genre, writ­ing for vio­lin and voice, as well as for gui­tar and voice. Joined by cel­lo and upright bass, expect string arrange­ments that push and pull, that move as they console.

Raine’s lat­est work, the full-length album Brave Land (202122), is a con­cept album about moun­tains, and the courage, wis­dom, and oth­er­world­ly con­nec­tion they represent. 

Raine is the recip­i­ent of the 2018 Cana­di­an Folk Music Award for Emerg­ing Artist of the Year! Raine has toured Cana­da exten­sive­ly, dri­ving, fly­ing, and float­ing coast to coast. High­lights include per­for­mances with the Win­nipeg Sym­pho­ny Orches­tra, Man­i­to­ba Cham­ber Orches­tra, and play­ing fes­ti­vals across Cana­da (Van­cou­ver Folk Fes­ti­val, Van­cou­ver Island Music Fest, Atlin Fes­ti­val, Home Coun­ty, Fil­berg Fest, Lilac Fest, Har­vest Moon, Trout Forest).
