Upcoming Shows 2014 · 26.01.14

Feb 14-16 Forget Me Not at Fort Edmonton Park – We are delighted that we have been asked to do FMN again. This is a show that is very dear to my heart. Here is an excerpt from the press release.

From a collection of secret stolen postcards comes a true story that begins with two lovers caught up in the turmoil of World War One.

At the age of 16, songwriter Andrea House finds a mystery in a stack of old postcards hidden in her grandparent’s house. They were love letters, addressed to her Grandfather, Forest House, from a beautiful French woman named Denise. In France to fight a war, but finding amour instead, Forest starts a love affair that will haunt him the rest of his life. From the war’s horrors and romantic fantasy, Forest is thrust back into the reality of his North American rural roots where he continues to dream of a lost love…

His wife of 40 years, Margaret House, is shocked when Forest has a stroke and begins calling her “Denise”. Although she is heartbroken to be thought of as a woman from Forest’s past, she continues to love and care for him through their final days together.

Featuring singer/songwriter Andrea House, guitarist Chris Smith, pianist Eric Mortimer, pedal steel player Bob Blair, and Edmonton Symphony member Scott Whetham, this evening of music and story telling is the perfect Valentine’s Day event. Step into the remarkable Capitol Theatre at Fort Edmonton Park, for a chance to be surrounded by the sights and sounds of 1917; and hear a story that reminds each of us what it really means to love.
