This is for “Walking Through the Fire” at the NEW HUGH’S ROOM. We have performed this concert from Ottawa to Winnipeg and are super-excited to finally bring it to our hometown. And if you have not seen it yet, the new Hugh’s Room is an exceptional space with perfect sight-lines and sound!

We’re bringing the whole gang together for this one. We are flying in The North Sound from the prairies. Dr. Duke Redbird is joining us, and the usual team of Shannon Thunderbird, Marc Meriläinen (Nadjiwan), Alyssa Delbaere-Sawchuck, and the core original Sultans of String (yours truly, Kevin Laliberté & Drew Birston), as well as a multimedia extravaganza linking in Northern Cree from Alberta, Inuit singers, and more!

Looking forward to seeing you there!

The Eclipse:

A total solar eclipse happens when the moon slides between the sun and the Earth and casts its shadow on Earth, blocking the face of the sun completely. This shadow moves quickly across the Earth’s surface along a narrow band known as the path of totality.

As the moment approaches when the moon’s shadow completely covers the sun, known as totality, the sky darkens as day turns briefly into night. The temperature drops. Venus, Jupiter, Mercury become visible. So do bright stars. As the sun’s light is blocked, its outer atmosphere, or corona, becomes briefly visible.

Although a total eclipse typically happens somewhere on Earth every few years, you could go through life without one happening near you. It happens an average of once every 375 years in a given spot!

Are you in the totality?  Check it out with this scrolling map, and be sure to get some official glasses at your local library, city hall, or Royal Astronomical Society!

Thanks for reading and look forward to seeing you soon!
