OVERVIEW:

Cozy up with the warm voice of Tim Watson and fiery wit of Trish Robb as we enter the long days of winter.

A window into the power of youth and the arts opens as O’Neill Dance Program performances take place throughout the evening.

Movies and popcorn are a welcome invitation leading into the winter season. Enjoy short films in our screening room with submissions from the annual Durham Region International Film Festival.

Performers

Tim Watson

Tim Watson is a singer songwriter and instrumentalist based out of Toronto. He studied classical performance at U of T but since then discovered a love for singing and songwriting. Most recently he plays alongside Trish Robb as an instrumentalist and back up singer in her group. Tim’s latest solo release was in 2015 when he released his first full length record titled, “Still A Young Man” which is available on iTunes and Bandcamp. As a songwriter, Tim’s biggest influences include Jeff Buckley, Joni Mitchell, Jason Isbell and Ray Lamontagne.

Trish Robb

Born in small-town New Brunswick; raised in almost-suburban Oshawa, now a singer-songwriter in the centre of Toronto’s music scene: it may well be said that Trish Robb is a natural on the large and varied tree of Canadian singer-songwriters.

Robb is a captivating performer, poised to build on successes that include opening for Ron Sexsmith, The Strumbellas, The Cowboy Junkies, Stephen Fearing, Adam Cohen, with tracks from her album played on CBC Radio, and multiple successful Western Canada tours. Trish is known as an entertaining performer who can deliver a show with a range of sentiments: at times hilarious, other times introspective, boldness contrasting with vulnerable honesty, and intensity followed by moments of light heartedness. Whatever the expression, audiences find themselves captive and discover the magnetism of her sense of familiarity.

Exhibition Tour: body language by Dani Crosby and David Bobier

Body language is comprised of all that is not said during a conversation. Working collaboratively, Oshawa-based illustrator and artist Dani Crosby and London-based multi-media artist David Bobier each produced a new body of work that responds to personal stories of Durham residents.
