Singer-songwriter Nonie Thompson (formerly Crete) is bringing her band to Kitchener for a show at The Registry on July 25. Nonie is a musical and storytelling force to be reckoned with. From heady blues, Irish balladry, to Cajun and French Canadian hues, Nonie effortlessly weaves genres together to create memorable songs. To date she has produced seven albums, with another two in preparation with her musical partner, multi-instrumentalist Eugene Rea.
Joining Nonie for this performance will be Eugene Rea (guitar, vocals, mandolin,whistles & more), Tom Leighton (accordion, vocals and more) and Ralph Johnson (upright and electric basses) with backing vocals from Peter Flood (Nonie’s talented nephew) and his girlfriend Holly Archer (Javert and Cosette of “Les Miserables”, Georgian Theatre, Barrie production). The opening act will be Kitchener-Waterloo’s Tyler Shaw. There will also be a special appearance from friend and long-time collaborator Pauline Kok, author of ‘The Remains of War’. As a child, Pauline spent World War II in Japanese Concentration camps in Indonesia and wrote a book about those years. This unique book was written from a young child’s viewpoint and touches the core of human suffering caused by the senselessness and evil of war.
