I was curious to attend this show at Pressed on February 3, 2018.
It was Heavy Bell and Raphael Weinroth-Browne playing to sold out show!
The show started off with Raphael.
As he called it “F**ked up Cello music”.
Then it was Heavy Bell turn to perform.
An 8-piece chamber ensemble which includes French Horn, Trumpet, Cello, Violin, Double Bass, Piano, Guitar and Percussion.
If you aren’t familiar, they are a duo made up of Royal Canoe frontman Matt Peters and actor/singer-songwriter Tom Keenan.
Promoting the album By Grand Central Station which was written as a tribute to the 1945 novel by Ottawa-born author Elizabeth Smart’s “By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept”.
I was left speechless and moved by the show.
Probably due to how beautiful the music sounded and flowed through stepping into their interpretation of the novel from that era.
