Birdie Whyte - Going to the Races Canadian

Ottawa-valley performer, poet, music educator, and songwriter, Birdie Whyte, is a storyteller rooted in the folk tradition, and sings with a quintessential country vocal tenor that channels the aching geniality of classics Townes van Zandt and Gillian Welch. Birdie's songs are witty, insightful and full of color and energy when brought to life with her country band The Hidden Connections.

Playing Saturday at Irenes!

Stephen Tippet calls in just after 8 am to talk about CAPITAL SHOWTUNES on Thursday!

Folks in the band scene have all kindsa chances to share their tunes with the world… but what about musical theatre peeps? All that work, all that prep, and the production is GONE! Boom it’s over! And as people move on to other shows, the lovely sing-songing tends to be lost to the breeze. No fun!

This inaugural version of CAPITAL SHOWTUNES aims to right that wrong! The evening will showcase a series of local composers, playing fave tracks from their fave shows! Expect silliness! Emotion! Special guests! Costumes! Laughing! Sing alongs!

Stephen John Tippet
Playing Selections from:
‘My Fair Zombie' (Brett Kelly Entertainment, 2016)
‘Scary Poppins' (Brett Kelly Entertainment, 2019)

Born in a land far away, Stephen settled in Canada in 1999 after terrorizing audiences on three continents. After peaking at The Glastonbury Festival and tired from the toll a rock and roll lifestyle was taking on his well-being, he found that musical theatre gigs involved a lot of sitting down and hasn't looked back since.

Tired of waiting by the phone, he wrote for a few Brett Kelly films (Spyfall, My Fair Zombie, Murder in high heels) and then wrote the songs for the stage version of My Fair Zombie (2016) and Scary Poppins (2019) and has just started working on a new musical for release at a distressingly poorly defined date in the future.

Annie Sumi - in the unknown Canadian

Dancing on a line between imagination and reality, ethereal-folk artist Annie Sumi’s music invites you into a familiar otherworld. Like an inbound wind, her voice begins with a whisper, gathers strength and purpose, and transforms into an airy howl. Her songs take you to places – of quiet wonder, of unspoken love, of tranquil landscape.
“You can’t leave an Annie Sumi performance and feel anything but inspired,” says Leah Morise, of London-based House of Harmony. “She fills the stage with joy and it spills over into the audience. Her songs manage to pull you into her world.”
Over the last three and a half years, the Ontario-based singer-songwriter has released two critically-acclaimed albums and toured her music across Canada, parts of the U.S. and Europe.

David Jalbert - . Canadian

JAZZ WEATHER! Well, Classical Weather I guess. ;)

A virtuoso with a warm, elegant style and a wide-ranging repertoire, pianist David Jalbert has established himself among the elite of a new generation of classical musicians: “Jalbert’s piano playing is remarkable for its sweep, confidence, sensitivity, power and color, what more can we ask?” (Fanfare). Named by the CBC as one of the 15 best Canadian pianists of all time, Mr. Jalbert performs regularly as a soloist and recitalist all over the world. His solo recordings – of the Goldberg Variations, the Shostakovich Preludes and Fugues, of American, Russian and French piano music – have all garnered international praise in venues ranging from Gramophone to France-Culture. He has been a guest soloist with numerous major orchestras and is an sought-after chamber musician, collaborating over the years with artists such as Nicola Benedetti, Jean-Philippe Collard, Rachel Barton Pine, Denise Djokic, Joel Quarrington, and performing with his piano trio, Triple Forte. A national and international prize-winner, David Jalbert has won five times at the Prix Opus and garnered four Juno Awards nominations, most recently in 2018 for his Stravinsky/Prokofiev disc. He is a graduate from the Juilliard School, the Glenn Gould School and Université de Montréal and is now a professor of piano at the University of Ottawa.
