Ghost House, performed by Jeremy Dutcher, is out now

Earlier this year, we reissued American-Canadian composer and activist  Beverly Glenn-Copeland’s 1986 masterpiece, Keyboard Fantasies, marking the 35th anniversary of its original release. In December, he will release Keyboard Fantasies Reimagined - a collection of songs from the now legendary album, re-worked and re-imagined by a collection of creative kindred spirits. Today, Beverly Glenn-Copeland releases Ghost House as performed by Polaris Prize winning, Toronto-based composer, musicologist and vocalist Jeremy Dutcher.

Dutcher wrote the following about his connection to Glenn-Copeland and his music:

 

we are taught from a very young age to have a deep respect for our elders.

they have so much to share;  in their experience, story and song.

we sit at their feet, and know ourselves as we hear what they have to tell us. 

we are guided by their error and dreams 

we, as they, are part of a great continuum, 

oriented towards life, in perpetuity.

 

when i heard his music, it felt like i heard the past, present and future all at once 

and that a pathway had been illuminated, musical or otherwise, 

towards a new way of relating to each other 

across all types of boundaries. 

 

when i first met Glenn,

i understood instantly that we create music for the same reason.

for the same group of people we’d never know;

weckuwapasihtit (those yet to come);

a whole generation of rainbow children 

who are not yet in it, but who have already changed the world. 

 

now is the time when the gifts of the rainbow nation have come forward 

to support the survival of our species. 

when we tune ourselves to teachings of the ones who have gone before,

we become imbued with a certain resilience and bravery, 

for our endurance on this difficult walk and

for our renewal. 

 

we are ever new.

 

deepest gratitude to BGC for the music, message and spirit rooted in love.
