From MuskokaUnlimited.com: Hawksley Workman excited about playing in Huntsville
Fans of hometown favourite Hawksley Workman are in for a treat on October 26 as the renowned artist is bringing his Lover/Fighter anniversary tour to the Algonquin Theatre.
The concert is part of this year’s Huntsville Festival of the Arts line-up and Workman is promising a fantastic show for the audience.
As he was recently in British Columbia, we reached out via email with some questions about his tour overall and specifically the Huntsville show.
“We’ll be playing the entire Lover/Fighter album, probably in order, as well as other favourites,” said Hawksley. “But the focus will be on this one record . . . It was the record that bumped up my career a notch or two, so the focus will be on those songs.”
The record itself was a huge hit that was toured worldwide and reached number-1 in France. It was one of his 17 solo records in a career that has spanned over two decades. He kicked it all off with a self-produced indie album titled For Him and The Girls in 1999 and has kept making wonderful music through the years, including many chart-topping singles.
Performing live is a different beast from creating records in studio and indeed there is a certain draw to it for most artists – Hawksley included.
“I’m free on stage,” he said. “There’s no future or past up there. I imagine it’s the same kind of ‘being in the moment’ that athletes feel.”
