Tuckamore Festival

What Was Needed Most

Performed by Juno award-winning Duo Concertante (Nancy Dahn, violin; Timothy

Steeves, piano), emerging cellist Amy Collyer-Holmes, and celebrated playwright Robert

Chafe, What Was Needed Most is a unique musical and dramatic piece that celebrates

Newfoundlanders and Labradorians in Canada and reflects the voices, hopes, dreams,

music, and stories of its communities. The foundation of this collaboration is uncovered

in the collected stories and music from across the province, and brings to light the threads

that bind us all together. Robert Chafe (Artistic Fraud) has explored the rugged beauty

of our province, gathering original tales from a variety of individuals and weaving an

intimate depiction of life in pre-confederation Newfoundland and Labrador. New music

has been commissioned from three alumni of the Tuckamore Festival, Duane Andrews,

Bekah Simms, and Aiden Hartery. Their music, inspired by the rich traditions of their

home, illuminates the subtext of Chafe’s intimate writing, accompanying the audience on

their journey through time and place, as they bring to light What Was Needed Most.

Tuckamore Travels will bring What Was Needed Most to regions previously visited by

Robert Chafe, giving audiences the unique opportunity to experience a performance they

helped create. Following performances, audience members will be invited to share their

reflections on the impact of the piece.
