$55

Measha Brueggergosman – Songs of Freedom

September 29, 2017

7:30 pm – Partridge Hall, FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre

With special guest Wycliffe Gordon

“It is the music of my people. My ancestors were stolen from Africa and sold into slavery in the United States before finding freedom in Nova Scotia.”

-Measha Brueggergosman

Measha Brueggergosman will perform Songs of Freedom, based on her recent film and album of the same name, an intensely powerful and spiritual collection of ‘Freedom Songs’ that emerged from Africa via the slave trade to America, then to Canada via the United Empire Loyalist migration and the Underground Railroad.

Measha’s latest album Songs of Freedom is a companion piece to the 2015 film of the same name that was nominated for 4 Canadian Screen Awards, which documented Measha’s own journey of discovering her family’s storied lineage, which stretches from Cameroon, West Africa to Canada’s Maritimes.

Jazz great Wycliffe Gordon will be making a special guest appearance at Measha Brueggergosman’s “Songs of Freedom” concert.

“Wycliffe Gordon can outperform nearly anyone
playing jazz” -NEW YORK TIMES
