Alison Crowe

Alison Crowe to do “hometown tour” in Ladysmith July 8, with Ryan McMahon

Canada Day weekend show to be her first performance here since 2012

Hometown touring will make for a terrific musical bill Friday, July 3 at 8 p.m. when the Allison Crowe Trio and special guest artist Ryan McMahon celebrate with a concert in the warm acoustic setting of Ladysmith First United Church (232 High Street).

Crowe last made an appearance in Ladysmith, and visited with friends and fans, in 2012 – for a sold out performance.

This upcoming Canada Day weekend, Crowe brings to the stage a brand-new musical combo featuring bassist Dave Baird and cellist Celine Greb.

Longtime friend Ryan McMahon will be her special guest.

Tickets are available at the Beantime Café (18 High Street) and Salamander Books (535 1st Ave.), or online at allisoncrowe.com/shoptickets. Cost is $25 General, $20 Students & Seniors.
