Highly-acclaimed Toronto singer/songwriter Arlene Bishop launched her fifth album, Together Tonight, with a show at Hugh’s Room Live this week. Her most ambitious project yet, the collection was recorded live-in-front-of-the-audience and features 30 guest singers and a band she jointly terms The Spirit of Adventure.
The impressive list of guest singers (a vorchestra) includes John Alcorn, Meryn Cadell, Tory Cassis, John Copping, Hotcha!, Heather Morgan, Adam Faux, Fergus Hambleton, Terra Hazelton, Blair Packham, Robert Priest, David Sereda, and Julian Taylor. Word is the concert was smashing.
