The Cremation of Sam McGee | 11 May

Saturday 11 May 2019
7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Christine Hanson, cello, and an eight-piece band

The performance tonight is based on Robert Service’s famous poem, set in the snow-bound north.

Christine Hanson’s wonderful musical compositions accompanying what is probably Service’s best-known poem make full play with the poetry’s different colours, nuances, tones and range—varying from traditional jigs, reels and country waltzes to southern swing and frosty musical soundscapes which perfectly evoke the bizarre, tragicomic setting of Service’s poem.

Line-up: Christine Hanson, cellist/composer; Gerry Cambridge, poet, narrator, harmonica; Anna Massie fiddle, guitar; Gordon Gunn, fiddle; Kevin Murray, guitar; Kevin McGuire, double bass; Rick Taylor, trombone; James MacIntosh, percussion; and Brian McAlpine, piano, box.
