Gig Pick: Flying Hórses at St. Luke’s Church—05.31.19

By Amanda Armstrong on May 29, 2019

If you have yet to experience Flying Hórses latest release, Reverie, Apt613 reviewed the album earlier this year. You can read about the album and give it a listen here.

Jade Bergeron aka Flying Hórses will play the first concert of her Reverie tour this Friday in St. Luke’s Church; in Chinatown. This beautiful building is perfectly suited to play host to her beautiful music. Bergeron will be playing piano, as well as an antique gramophone and a turn of the century music box.

Born in February’s darkness, Reverie is Jade’s “heartbreak record… everybody has one.” The album is one of melodic sadness; the kind of sadness one feels when leaving behind something one felt would always be there. Bergeron’s piano is the lantern, leading us on an exploration of our own dark corners.

Story continues below:

Opening for Flying Hórses is Ottawa-born, Montreal-based artist Socalled, who will play a solo piano show. To help us conjure images of our mind’s places upon which we don’t often shed light, there will be visuals by MAVN throughout the show.

With the Reverie tour kicking off, opportunities to see Flying Hórses perform in Ottawa again this year are limited.

Flying Hórses is performing at St. Luke’s Church (760 Somerset St W) on Friday May 31 at 7pm. Tickets cost $20 online and at Vertigo Records.
