Kate Weekes – Album Release Show
Kate Weekes is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and vocalist based in the Gatineau Hills of Quebec. Kate has released three albums of original material as well as collaborative projects. Her musical background ranges from touring in China with a swing band to touring the Canadian prairies with the fiddle group ‘Home Sweet Home’. Her songwriting garnered the recognition of the ‘Songs from the Heart’ Award for the political category in 2017.
For her fourth solo album Better Days Ahead, singer, songwriter, guitarist and nascent banjo player Kate Weekes dove deep into “the liminal space created by lockdowns and cancelled plans” to unearth a stirring, picturesque collection of 10 original songs ranging from Appalachian-influenced murder-suicide ballads to anthemic folk-pop to whimsical instrumental waltzes, all buoyed by an eclectic assortment of instruments including (but not limited to) fiddle, flugelhorn, frame drum and fretless bass. Alongside long-time producer and multi-instrumentalist James Stephens, Weekes guides listeners on vivid sonic journeys inspired by nature but nurtured by imagination.
