Join the National Music Centre (NMC) for an intimate songwriters’ circle at Studio Bell on Wednesday, November 30, featuring RBC Master in Residence Raine Maida.
As part of the RBC Master in Residence Mentorship Program, Maida will mentor three Alberta acts with one-on-one songwriting workshops on November 30, with a public event to follow that day at 3:30 pm in Studio Bell’s second floor performance hall. Mentored acts, personally selected by Maida, include Calgary folk-soul outfit Copperhead, Edmonton alt-pop duo The Royal Foundry, and indie-pop-rockers Two Bears North, also from Edmonton.
“You can never underestimate the power of creative collaboration. I’m looking forward to the upcoming RBC Master in Residence workshops with the National Music Centre and the chance to work with some truly talented artists,” said Raine Maida.
The RBC Master in Residence program invites emerging artists to work under the leadership of a Master in Residence chosen to inspire creativity, encourage innovation, share expertise, and provide mentorship. Internationally-acclaimed artist and producer Daniel Lanois led NMC’s first ever Master in Residence event with an interactive master session as part of Sled Island in 2015.
“As one of the founding members of Our Lady Peace, and an accomplished songwriter for not only his own projects, but also contributing to the music and lyrics of other artists, I’m confident that Raine will offer an invaluable experience to each of the mentored artists,” said Adam Fox, NMC’s Director of Programs.
RBC Master in Residence: Raine Maida is accessible with paid admission to Studio Bell, and will happen on November 30 at 3:30 pm.
Regular admission to Studio Bell is $18 for adults, $14 for students/seniors, $11 for children (3-12 years of age), and free for children under 3 years of age.
