Rae Spoon and Kim Barlow and special guest Mohammad Sahraei March 2020

Rae Spoon and Kim Barlow and special guest Mohammad Sahraei are joining for a Canada-wide tour in March 2020 from the Yukon Arts Centre to the Black Sheep Inn, QC. The Unremitting Orchestra will feature string arrangements for setar and other non-western strings,and drums/electronics. The resulting collaboration will bring a new element to their original songs, and feature traditional Persian music interspersed in a live performance that is vibrant and beautiful.

Rae Spoon and Kim Barlow will each play separate sets of their original songs (while accompanying each other) and Mohammad Sahraei will open the show with a set from his own repertoire.

They have been nominated for two Polaris Prizes, a Lambda Literary Award and a Western Canadian Music Award.

Her newest album, How to Let Go features some of the East Coast's best, produced by Mark Adam with Old Man Luedecke guest vocals.

Mohammad Sahraei is an ethnomusicologist, skilled on many
traditional Persian instruments. His ensemble, Open Borders, a group of 30 international musicians, have performed at the Halifax Jazz Festival, Obey Festival, Upstream, Multicultural Festival, Feast Festival, and Iranian and Indian Festivals.
