When Howard Baer comes to The Old Church Theatre we can always count on him to bring along the very best in musical artistry. This time it’s the incredible finger-style guitarist and singer-songwriter Noah Zacharin.
Noah Zacharin: Born in Montreal, he now resides in Toronto. He’s been called “a stunning guitarist” (Holger Petersen, CBC), “a wonderful songwriter and performer” (Paul Mills, Borealis Records), and “a poet, a songwriter, a singer we have been waiting for” (Penny Lang). Minor 7th commented: “like Bruce Cockburn, Ry Cooder, and Bonnie Raitt, Noah Zacharin possesses a virtuoso command of the guitar…world-wise songwriting”.
Zacharin has released 6 CD’s of literate, well-crafted songs that know no barrier of genre. His most recent—“Waiting on Your Love”—has been heard nationally on CBC and Radio-Canada, is “one of the best singer/songwriter CD’s I have ever heard” (Randy Finney, TFGA), and features the best of Toronto’s jazz, pop, and roots players, as well as long-time Tom Waits alum, Ralph Carney.
