GATHERING SPARKS is the graceful collision of Eve Goldberg and Jane Lewis—musical friends who bonded over finely tuned harmonies and the craft of songwriting. Their inclusive approach embraces folk, pop, blues and gospel influences tastefully played on acoustic guitar, piano, accordion, ukulele, and banjo.
With their love of participatory group singing and infectious mix of styles, Gathering Sparks has been making some big waves. Their debut 6-song CD was nominated for a 2014 Canadian Folk Music Award for Vocal Group of the Year, and they have quickly become an audience favourite. Whether they are belting it out a capella style, tugging on your heartstrings with a folky original, crooning a jazzy swing tune, or getting into the spirit with a gospel-inflected singalong, Gathering Sparks’ performances make fans out of listeners with their stellar harmonies and fine musicianship.
This home concert is put together by Home Routes out of Winnipeg. Georgetown’s Frank and Ruth Loreto have been hosting Home Routes concerts ( at 3 Torino Gate) for 5 plus years and have yet to be disappointed by any of the shows.
The cost for the evening is $20 per person, with the full amount going to the performers. They need to know in advance who is coming as they can only hold 25 people comfortably and they must know how many break-time delights to prepare in advance. Now is not too soon to book this or other upcoming shows in the Loreto Home Routes Concert Series. To reserve a spot, contact Frank at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
