Every summer, the Grist Mill features some exceptional classical, traditional, folk, roots, world music, and acoustic blues talents as they perform in the heritage gardens near our 1877 waterwheel-powered flour mill. We’re only a half hour drive from Penticton, OK Falls, Oliver or Osoyoos–come visit one of the most charming concert venues in the South Okanagan and Similkameen.

ARTIST BIO

Resonant, acoustic folk with an other-worldly edge, and a lyric presence that cuts deep. Prism-clear vocals + strings; A combination of vocal agility and power.

Raine is part prairie songstress, part storyweaver; Each song has a story, delivered between songs with humour and grace. Expect to laugh, expect to cry. Also, she’s probably shorter than you’re imagining, so expect that, too.

Raine invites her love of the violin into the singer-songwriter genre, writing for violin and voice, as well as for guitar and voice.

Reviewers describe Raine’s music as “simultaneously earnest and mature” (Daniel Emberg, Stylus Magazine), “complimented by menacing strings and balanced out by Hamilton’s sugary vocals”  (Nicholas Friesen, The Uniter).

“I was stunned to hear something as clear and delicate as her voice ring out – commanding attention with its sensitive, open approach… with a rich musical history at play in her creation” (Eleni Armenakis, Gray Owl Point).

Raine has an established history of live shows, including performances for the Governor General of Canada, West End Cultural Centre, Edge of the World Festival (Haida Gwaii BC), Home County Festival (ON), Festival du voyageur, Rainbow Trout, Fire and Water, Harvest Sun, Matlock, Anola Little Music Festival, and the Shine on Festival of Music and Arts.

Raine’s first full-length album, Past Your Past, was released in May of 2015.
