We’re giving away two passes to tonight’s performance by Flying Hórses at the National Arts Centre, which is sure to be an intimate spectacle.
Flying Hórses is the project of composer-pianist Jade Bergeron, who combines piano, Wurlitzer, chimes, bells and cello to create instrumental soundscapes that stir the soul. Her debut album, Tölt, was recorded with Sigur Rós’ producer, Biggi Birgisson, at Sundlaugin Studio in Iceland. She also played Iceland Airwaves Music Festival in 2015, as well as the world-renowned Festival International de Jazz de Montreal in 2016. The Banff Centre for Performance Arts welcomed Flying Hórses in the fall of 2016 for a residency, to work and collaborate with Juno award-winner Charles Spearin (Broken Social Scene, Do Make Say Think). And just to put the cherry on top, Flying Hórses was nominated for the 2018 Prism Prize, for Best Canadian Music Video, alongside Leonard Cohen, The Weeknd, Feist, and Grimes. Not bad company to be in.
We’re giving away a few free passes to Flying Hórses’ performance at the NAC’s Fourth Stage at 8:30 PM tonight along with Ottawa’s own mal/aimé, so be sure to enter below! Just fill out the form and we’ll be in touch by 6:00 PM via email if you’ve won.
