Relive the music of the 80’s with Kevin Hearn and Hugh Marsh at Burlington Performing Arts Centre

Acclaimed pianist, composer and multi-instrumentalist with Barenaked Ladies, Kevin Hearn, and JUNO award nominated violinist, Hugh Marsh will celebrate the music of the 80’s with their latest work, Dreaming of the 80s, Saturday, March 4th, 2023 7:30pm at The Burlington Performing Arts Centre. 

Dreaming of the 80s was conceived on the spectacular Fogo Island Inn off the eastern coast of Newfoundland, Hearn and Marsh were invited to play for New Year’s Eve 2018, and decided to pepper their set with a few covers. Among them were “Heaven” by The Psychedelic Furs, Lou Reed’s “Rooftop Garden,” and “Cemetery Polka” by Tom Waits – all written and recorded in the 1980’s. “

“We decided to keep going down the road of exploring songs and artists from the ‘80s,” Hearn explains.

They have produced an album, which will be released in Toronto on February 17th, which will feature  opera singer Michael Colvin, 80’s rock icon Carole Pope providing a fresh take of Billy Idol’s “Eyes Without a Face.” Hearn’s fellow Lou Reed accompanist Fernando Saunders performing Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin’” and Sun Ra Arkestra trumpeter Michael Ray lends his touch to a medley of tunes from his former bandleader.
