The Olympic Symphonium are heading north this summer.
The trio will perform at the Atlin Folk Festival in July alongside Bruce Cockburn before heading to Yukon for shows in Whitehorse and Dawson City.

Though they’ve been a band for almost 10 years now, this is the first time The Olympic Symphonium have performed “North of 60.” They are currently working on the follow-up to their 4th album, Chance To Fate, by recording in various locations around Atlantic Canada this summer.

Garnering unparalleled critical acclaim over the past number of years, Michael has been dubbed “a national treasure” (Globe & Mail) who writes music that is “simultaneously heartfelt and apathetic, sacred and profane.” (CBC Music). His newest release has received similar accolades:

“confirms why a small collection of short stories can be as compelling as a full-length narrative.” – Exclaim!
“un savant mélange de sagesse et de nostalgie” – BRBR
“equal parts causal and captivating” – Grid City


The group will perform intimate shows in Fredericton, at Moncton’s Northrup Frye Literary Festival, an early seating at The Seahorse in Halifax, and at Sackville’s Bordertown Festival before Michael returns solo to play in Charlottetown’s Back Alley Music store and in Nova Scotia’s south shore.
