Spelning på Ekolivs med Michael Holt

På onsdag, 30 oktober, kl 19 kommer trubaduren Michael Holt från Toronto, Kanada, på besök till Ekolivs. Han är på storturné genom Nordamerika och Europa. Ekolivs blir Michaels enda Malmöspelning. Spelningen är gratis, men Michael blir glad för lite tips i hatten i slutet av spelningen.

Välkommen in till Ekolivs!

Så skriver han själv om vad han gör:

Toronto-based troubadour Michael Holt has toured North America and Europe twenty times and released eight albums of his music. He puts on a happy, sad, serious, and funny variety show using multiple instruments, costumes, and characters. He weaves Maurice Ravel, Bob Dylan, Prince, and Fela Kuti together with original classical pieces on the piano, Beatlesy pop songs on the guitar, and Fellini-esque lounge music on the organ. 
At the centre of it all is Holt’s deep commitment to sharing honestly from the heart and bringing people together through music. On his last several tours, he began searching for more meaningful ways to connect with audiences than what he found at bars and clubs. This led him to house concerts and other warm, intimate gatherings in non-commercial venues. He envisions a culture that treats music, food, celebration, community, and the planet as if they were sacred.
Sample some of his many styles here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhjLfTeiw6c&list=PL5D54885E00F119F9”Michael Holt writes an all-too-rare kind of music, in which sophistication is in the service of emotion. His personal, powerful songs are really smart, but you realize that only after you first experience them as intimate, direct, and deeply meaningful.”
David Garland, WNYC, America’s most-listened-to public radio station
“Michael’s Scriabin-influenced piano playing is so exciting, I can’t get enough of it.” 
Owen Pallett (Final Fantasy/Arcade Fire)
”Michael Holt is a diamond among too many rhinestones. He brings empathy, ingenuity and raw dignity to his lexicon of heartfelt songs.”
Bob Wiseman, Toronto songwriter
”It’s a powerful gift Holt is using, and he wields it well.”
