NORTH RUSTICO – Noted as a decade of change, the 1980s also produced some memorable (and forgettable) music. But British artists led the charge with the likes of David Bowie. He was a trailblazer and one of the first of the androgynous type stars.

His music evolved from folk, to rock, pop and was even a crooner with a bounty of hits.

Another group, The Eurythmics, also identified with the androgynous movement and explored the new synth driven pop sound with songs like “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).”

With Bowie, The Eurythmics and even Sade in mind, classic music will be reimagined and reignited in North Rustico at the Watermark Theatre on Sunday.

Interpreters for the evening will include headliner Rachel Beck (formerly of the Beck Sisters). Beck’s recent album features the No. 1 CBC song “Reckless Heart.” Supporting her is pianist and singer/songwriter Kim Dunn from Nova Scotia.

An award-winning musician, producer, musical director and arranger, Dunn has been fostering a successful musical career for over 30 years.

Special guest for the evening is North Rustico’s own Nick Gauthier. Gauthier has toured across Canada and internationally.

Classic Music Reignited kicks off on Aug. 5 at 7:30 p.m.
