Carried – Don Macdonald CD Release

This performance is at St Saviour’s Anglican Pro-Cathedral, 701 Ward Street in Nelson

Tickets $20 available through the Capitol Theatre Box Office & website!

He’s written an opera, over 20 published works for choir, a soundtrack for a cult classic zombie movie, and now he’s just finished his first album as singer/songwriter. Award winning composer Don Macdonald creates a moody blend of original songs reminiscent of Norah Jones, Leonard Cohen and Sting on his debut album titled “Carried”.

This evening’s show will performed with the help of Jesse Lee (bass), Ralf Buschmeyer (guitar), Steven Parish (drums), Laura Landsberg and Allison Girvan (Don’s wife) on vocal harmonies, and Don on lead vocals, violin and piano. While the album features electric guitars and keyboards this performance will be mainly with acoustic instruments.

Before coming to Nelson to teach at the Selkirk College Music Program Don was a busy professional singer and film composer in Vancouver. Nelson audiences may know Don’s music through “Khaos”, the opera he composed with librettist NIcola Harwood or through the local performances he does on jazz violin, saxophone or voice.
