The Gilberts

Emigrating to Canada and settling in Nova Scotia when they were knee-high to a grasshopper, these siblings started out at open mics on muddy festival grounds before graduating to the main stages at Lunenburg Folk Harbour, Deep Roots, Full Circle, Celtic Colours, Halifax Urban Folk Festival, and Goderich Celtic Roots. They have also been featured performers in two Holiday Magic shows on CTV, at the virtual 2021 Philadelphia Folk Festival, and opened for Jimmy Rankin at the Halifax Convention Centre.

Celtic, country and choral music are among the influences that siblings Frieden, Reuben and Maisie have harnessed along the road to a 2021 Canadian Folk Music Award for their debut album ‘The Gilberts: One’, followed by a 2021 Music Nova Scotia Award, and 2022 Canadian Folk Music Awards nomination for the follow-up ‘Tell Me’.

The Gilberts’ touring show Harmonious features performances with close three-part harmonies, soulful lyrics and compelling arrangements to both original pieces and songs by influential harmony groups including Fleetwood Mac, the Bee Gees, Crosby Stills & Nash, The Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel and the Carpenters.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGMENT

We are located in Awokun, Mi’kma’ki, also known as Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, which is on land that is in the unceded and unsurrendered territory of the Mi’kmaq people. The Mi’kmaq people have been here on this land for over 11,000 years. In 1752 a treaty was signed between the British and the Mi’kmaq that detailed the sharing of the land and its resources. We know that the rights within this treaty have not been upheld. As descendants of settlers who colonized this land, it is important that we think about our relationship to the land, to Mi’kmaq culture and its people, and how we can make a future where we actually share the land and the resources it gives us. We need to think about how we can move forward to enact a future of respect and generosity. And we need to act immediately, with kindness and compassion. A major step in this process is educating ourselves. Ship’s Company Theatre is on a continuing journey of awareness and education. We encourage you to join us.

Ship's Company Theatre would like to thank eOpen Solutions for their support.
