A Dream of Colour

I grew up in Hamilton, Ontario, hometown of Canadian impressionist painter William Blair Bruce. Through a familial connection to Bruce, I grew up hearing stories about his life and seeing his paintings in the homes of my grandparents and aunts. I was a regular visitor to the Art Gallery of Hamilton that holds a fabulous collection of Bruce’s works.

In 2020 I commissioned seven new Canadian pieces inspired by the paintings of William Blair Bruce. With this project I hoped to create a new repertoire of Canadian music for solo guitar that would capture Bruce’s artistic practice and share the magic of his paintings through sound.  

This album features music by Amy Brandon, Christine Donkin, Dale Kavanagh, Jeffrey McFadden, Daniel Mehdizadeh, Craig Visser, and Christina Volpini.

This album was supported by the Canada Council for the Arts and the City of Hamilton.
