Spring Breakup takes a quirky look at the inevitable end of love

by on February 11, 2011

The Fredericton Playhouse is pleased to present the third installment of our Onstage Series performances as Spring Breakup and Pat Braden entertain in an intimate concert setting on Thursday, February 17 at 8pm. Audiences will be treated to a beautifully warm and personal concert experience full of music and storytelling . Using the theatre as a backdrop, this component of our Spotlight Series introduces a highly intimate experience with some of Canada’s most exciting up-and-coming music artists.

Spring Breakup is the Yukon-based song writing duo of Mathias Kom (of The Burning Hell) and Kim Barlow, who are taking their obsession for breakup songs on the road across Canada. Their songs have a really strong current of black comedy and clever wordplay, using nothing more than simple ukulele and banjo riffs, and traded couplets to grab hold of your emotions. Quickly becoming known for writing tiny, happy songs about the inevitable end of love, together they show off how well their unique and sophisticated voices work together.

Taking the stage with them is Pat Braden, a true treasure from Canada’s North. An excellent musician, lyricist and communicator, Pat is a storyteller and songwriter who weaves his soft-spoken voice through textual musical elements to paint exquisitely beautiful images of his home land in Yellowknife and the people he loves. In his celebrated one-man show A Place to Call Home, Pat invites us into his rich and colourful Yellowknife culture and landscape like no other artist can.

Tickets for Spring Breakup and Pat Braden are available at the Fredericton Playhouse box office 1-866-884-5800, or online at
