A Midautumn Night's Dream Tour Winds Its Way Across Canada

Published: 2005-09-28
For the second time this year, the five-headed songwriting monster now known as A Midautumn Night's Dream is lurching its melodious way across the Canadian landscape. The five heads are known individually as critically acclaimed songsmiths Kate Maki, Ruth Minnikin, Nathan Lawr, Dale Murray and Ryan Bishops, and their unique setup finds each member taking turns performing lead and backup duties (including switching instruments) throughout the controlled chaos of their sure-to-be rollicking set.

The idea began with Minnikin and Maki's inaugural A Midwinter Night's Dream tour early in 2004 before expanding to its current quintet formation. The five have already begun their gig-heavy trip across the country, slowly making their way in from the East Coast as we speak (well, as I write, anyway). They will play their way through Quebec before heading out West and back again, before ending the marathon tour in Ontario in early November. Methinks this dream shall be a seasonal delight to savour.
