CBC Radio Toque Sessions Concert Series kicks off with C.R. Avery

On February 6, come witness the energy and artistry that is C.R. Avery with his current band that includes a classically trained string quartet!  For the first of the concert series "Toque Sessions" presented by CBC Radio, Avery brings his acclaimed new show with the Legal Tender String Quartet to cr-avery.jpgspacious Studio 40. You'll also be treated to the sounds of opening act and songstress Sam Parton.

As your public broadcaster, CBC Radio takes its responsibility to Canadians seriously. Not only will we enrich your eardrums with entertaining and diverse musical acts we promise to keep your lobes nice and warm too. February is a hell of a month to be going out into the cold without protection, so every CBC Toque Sessions audience member will receive a piece of limited edition head gear to thwart the weather.

C.R. Avery is a poet, pianist and composer who has received accolades from the likes of American music icon Tom Waits who said "...(he's) blowin' my mind"...

Former Be Good Tanyas front girl, Sam Parton, kicks off the evening with a set of intimate songs from yesterday and today. She has performed at many of the most prestigious venues and festivals throughout Canada and the world, and has recently returned from two years in New York City, where she worked as a folklorist, started a choir, and played in several bands.
