Massey Hall's spirit lives on with a brand new Live at Massey Hall film premiere, featuring acclaimed Canadian singer-songwriter, Kathleen Edwards next Thursday, November 19 @ 4:00 PM EST at www.liveatmasseyhall.com.

Filmed on May 4, 2018 - just months before Massey Hall temporarily closed its iconic red doors for the Massey Hall Revitalization, Kathleen Edwards makes a triumphant return to the stage after a lengthy hiatus. Edwards performs fan-favourites and premieres new material from what would later become her acclaimed 2020 album Total Freedom live at Massey Hall - offering fans a look into the evolution and the development of the album's tracks.

"There's something about the sense of great artistic moments in music that happened within the walls of Massey Hall and I was so very fortunate to play the iconic venue back in 2018," said Kathleen Edwards. "Haven't really been able to play shows this year so I guess the next best thing is re-visiting one of my favorite shows. Also Happy Birthday, Neil Young!"

Kathleen Edwards encourages you to consider donating or supporting live music presenters such as Save Our Stages in the U.S. and the Massey Hall Revitalization.
