Description

My Father Loved Me: celebrated Canadian-American song poet Rachael Kilgour brings her heartfelt new release, written in memory of her late father, to the stage.

In the spare, often gutting language for which she is known, Kilgour gives us a complex portrait of a man as seen through his daughter’s eyes. With unwavering acuity she poses questions about identity, inheritance, and grief, and affirms the value of one ordinary working man’s life to an often indifferent world.

Listeners can expect a tender and intimate unscripted performance chronicling the life, death, trials and triumphs of her late father. With 'My Father Loved Me', Kilgour unveils herself in such a way that the audience can't help but reflect on their own complicated relationships to fatherhood and mortality.
