Virtual Bands on the Bay: Christina Hutt
July 21, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
The Stockey Centre presents Bands on the Bay sponsored by the North Star: Christina Hutt
While it is our annual tradition to host regional performers on our bayside patio from June to August, this summer we’ll be bringing the performers to you right in the comfort of your own home… virtually! Join us on Tuesday evenings this summer and we’ll be broadcasting some sweet tunes via Facebook and YouTube.
About the band:
Christina Hutt resides in Kearney, Ontario not far from her hometown, Sprucedale. She was drawn to music at the age of five when her parents bought her a wireless microphone and a Tina Turner album. She continues to be influenced by many artists, recognizing the soul in Etta James, Patsy Cline’s art of delivering a song, the poetry of Leonard Cohen, the warmth of Mary Chapin Carpenter, and the camaraderie of The Cowboy Junkies, to mention a few.
Six years ago Christina began pursuing her dream to sing and perform music full time. Wholly determined, she launched herself out of her comfort zone on a mission to improve her chops and gain experience. Christina is now well known throughout Central Ontario for her passionate singing and her unique and resonant voice.
Christina sings Folk and Blues and has a special fondness for traditional Country. She continues to please audiences at small theatres, house concerts, markets, and pubs but her goal is to have the opportunity to play for bigger audiences while seeing more of the world. She and her band hope to one day play at Toronto’s world-famous Massey Hall. Christina recently released a single with Bet Smith and the Currie Brothers titled “Fifteen Shades” and is currently working with her band on a Traditional Country album.
