10 years? 10 years. Ottawa’s exploratory art-folk collective celebrate the decennial anniversary of their critically-acclaimed 2007 album GLORY HOPE MOUNTAIN (GHM), performing it front-to-back with live video projections. The show coincides with a 10th anniversary special edition Double LP re-issue from Paper Bag Records, available at this show in limited quantities. GHM will be performed by The Acorn with special guest members from FET.NAT, Scattered Clouds, The Holy Gasp, and more TBA.
We are beyond lucky to welcome spellbinding MTL art-soul wanderers, Un Blonde, to open the night!
about GLORY HOPE MOUNTAIN
Critically-acclaimed upon its release in 2007, GHM is a Canadian immigrant story. With expansive lyricism and a wide musical palate, it recounts the remarkable life of Gloria Esperanza Montoya, a Honduran refugee who overcame surreal and traumatic odds before fleeing to Montreal, Canada in 1972. Based on months of conversations with her son, Acorn songwriter Rolf-Carlos Klausener, the album bridges art-pop, experimental folk, and the indigenous traditions of Honduras and the Garifuna. It was nominated for the Polaris Music Prize in 2008
