Event Details

Stewart Legere and special guests bring the songs of the silver screen to the Alderney Landing stage for Still Hearts, an intimate candlelit cabaret featuring a set list of iconic movie soundtrack anthems, including reimagined hits from Romeo + Juliet (1996), Ghost (1990), Barbie (2023) and more.

A multidisciplinary artist from Dartmouth/Punamu’kwati’jk, Legere is no stranger to heartbreaking renditions of familiar songs. Recently, he and the very talented Rachel Cousins (of Newfoundland) were tasked with reimagining Joel Plaskett’s Nowhere With You as part of a special Juno edition of CBC’s East Coast Music Hour “On Air” series. To get a taste of Legere’s incredible vocals, you can catch Nowhere With You and his and Cousin’s new creation inspired by the Plaskett hit, Someone Like You, on CBC’s website.

Known for his astounding, vulnerable vocals and poetic lyrics, Legere is an avid and passionate collaborator, working as a vocalist with the orchestral pop outfit The Heavy Blinkers and as the Associate Artistic Director at ZUPPA. He composes music and sound for theatre and film, and his various projects have been presented at theatres and festivals across Canada and the UK. He is currently an artist-in-residence at The Theatre Centre in Toronto.

In 2013, Legere and frequent collaborator Kim Harris presented the soundtrack to Baz Luhrman’s Romeo + Juliet in an evening of twinkling angst, celebrating the pains and joys of love at the beloved Company House. After a special sold-out 10-year anniversary concert last Valentine’s Day, Legere and special guests Aquakultre, Waants and Mel Stone will dive into an expanded program of nostalgic hits, complete with visuals from award-winning projection designer Christian Ludwig Hansen.
