A high-powered show organized and hosted by high-powered musician Robin Benedict. Her co-performers for the evening — Pamela Gardner, Brennagh Burns, Joe Towers, and Aaron Di Carlo (Dub Donor) — will be collaborating and combining their talents to put on an unforgettable, intimate performance.
Robin Benedict has been playing music independently throughout Southern Ontario and the United States since her first EP, Ride of my Life, released in 2012. A video of Robin singing Blondie’s ‘Heart of Glass’ went viral throughout Facebook in 2014, reaching 5 million people. A successful crowd funding campaign allowed her to record a second EP of 6 songs, Dance Away the Darkness. In 2017 she took to the road with fellow singer-songwriter Brennagh Burns, on a winter-escape tour throughout the US. She is a full-time musician based in Hamilton, playing solo to pay the bills. Recently she has developed a personal Janis Joplin Tribute Show stacked with some of Ontario’s most renowned players. Robin prides herself in her ability to share a positive attitude on life through her original songs, which speak of soul-searching and new beginnings. Music is the air Robin breathes. Her voice can both jolt like a firecracker and lull a baby to sleep. When she opens her mouth to sing, she means it every time.
