Barnyard Drama (Ontario)

2 musicians posing

The partnership of singer Christine Duncan and drummer and producer Jean Martin over the years has resulted in many memorable large-scale productions, including  Element Choir projects with soloists William Parker and Veryan Weston, and recently a Toronto Symphony Orchestra commission, Qiksaaktuq, featuring Tanya Tagaq as soloist and Christine conducting the brass section with improvised hand-cues (derived in part from those of the Element Choir). They have also produced eleven(!) Barnyard Drama Xmas Singalong records featuring friends and neighbours playing fun and twisted seasonal chestnuts, testament to their family and community spirit. As an intimate, closing concert for the festival, we are pleased to host Duncan and Martin in the original duo incarnation of Barnyard Drama, no less than a national treasure.
