July 17 to 27, 2014. Artword Theatre presents Stuart Laughton’s “Trumpet Romance: a wild journey in search of music“ at the 2014 Hamilton Fringe Theatre Festival, at our Bring-Your-Own-Venue: Artword Artbar, 15 Colbourne Street.
Trumpet Romance: a wild journey in search of music is written and performed by Stuart Laughton with an array of musical instruments including trumpet, guitar, harmonica, piano. The show is directed by Ronald Weihs, who also did the script development, and produced by Artword Theatre. Stuart Laughton picked up a trumpet when he was nine, and it was love at first breath. He began a stellar classical career: Canadian Brass at age 19 and La Scala orchestra at 23. But the siren call of B.B. King’s guitar took him on a wild musical journey, playing roots music in Porkbelly Futures, until it all came together by a lake in Haliburton in R. Murray Schafer’s And Wolf Shall Inherit the Moon.
