Gathering Sparks in Concert at Old Church Theatre

March 10 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


You will come to listen, and walk away singing. GATHERING SPARKS is the graceful collision of Eve Goldberg and Jane Lewis—musical friends who blend tight harmonies, finely crafted songs, and a love of participatory singing to create an intimate and uplifting experience. Their inclusive approach embraces folk, pop, blues and gospel influences tastefully played on acoustic guitar, piano, accordion, and ukulele.

EVE GOLDBERG has lifted audiences across North America with her heartfelt and insightful songs and solid instrumental work. Her fluid vocals embrace all the styles she loves—folk, blues, country, bluegrass, old time, and jazz—with equal affection and mastery. She was recently honoured with the esteemed 2021 Estelle Klein Award, given annually to an individual who has made a significant contribution to the folk community.

JANE LEWIS has followed her love of words from the printing press to the spotlight with soul-bending lyrics, transcendent compositions, and crystal-clear vocals. Her thoughtful piano and accordion playing, mastery of harmony, and upbeat presence add a sparkle to any stage.

With their infectious mix of styles and compelling vocal blend, Gathering Sparks has made some big waves. Their debut 6-song CD was nominated for a 2014 Canadian Folk Music Award for Vocal Group of the Year. Their newest album, “All That’s Real,” was released in September 2019 on Borealis Records. The lead track, “Bringing in the Light,” was recognized with a 2019 Folk Music Ontario “Songs From the Heart” award in the singer-songwriter category. All That’s Real reached #7 on the Folk Alliance International (FAI) Folk Chart for October 2019, and the winter solstice-themed “Bringing in the Light” charted #1 on the FAI Folk Chart in December 2019. Gathering Sparks and the new album were featured in Penguin Eggs magazine in Winter 2019, and the album made 2019 “Best Of” lists of several radio hosts, including Rich Warren’ nationally syndicated US folk radio show “The Midnight Special” out of WFMT in Chicago, and Jan Hall’s syndicated “Folk Roots Radio with Jan Hall.”

Whether they are belting it out a capella style, tugging on your heartstrings with a folky original, crooning a jazzy swing tune, or getting into the spirit with a gospel-inflected singalong, Gathering Sparks performances make fans out of listeners with their stellar harmonies and fine musicianship.
