Playing live shows is the absolute best. Live music suspends us in the ether; it lets us reach in to ourselves, and out to each other, seeing through and beyond. Playing live shows is my favorite.

American Sign Language Interpreted Tour: Saskatchewan
This October, the Raine Hamilton String Trio headed out on their first tour with American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation. Raine started presenting concerts with ASL interpretation in 2017, in consultation with the Deaf community. Raine believes that music is for everyone who wants it, and she is working to make concerts and the music community more inclusive.
All of the concerts were entirely ASL interpreted, with every spoken and sung word interpreted into the visual language. The trio performed songs from the new album Night Sky, some from the first album, Past Your Past, and some new songs, too.
