Performing Artists

Artist: Harpin’ Norm Lucien

Harpin’ Norm Lucien
Bio:

In about 1968, Harpin’ Norm picked up the harmonica and has barely put it down since!  Playing with a vast variety of musicians over the years, Harpin’ has developed a style very much his own. Playing in an array of styles from folk to swing, his personal touch adds color and depth to the tunes and musicians he works with. His explorations into the possibilities of the harmonica inform his sensitive solo compositions.

Recently adding guitar and lyrics to his harp playing as a means of accompanying and rounding out performances, Harpin’ is enjoying requests to record and even beginning to have his songs covered by others!

In fact, Harpin’ backs so many musicians with his harps that he most only plays his own original tunes when playing solo!

Artist: Sharon Thompson

Sharon Thompson
Bio:

She grew up in Toronto, Ontario attending the only Welsh church in Canada. On Sunday mornings she would be found singing the first verse in English, and the second in Welsh. This beautiful Gaelic language can be found on her recordings.

Sharon has recorded 3 albums to date: Visions of Hymn and her latest, More of Hymn, received nominations for Album of the Year and Song of the Year in the Traditional Category from GMA Canada. Considered a lyrical soprano, Sharon was classically trained under William Nahr: New York City Center Opera Company. With such a crystal clear voice she has even been called a `songbird` by past producers.

Sharon loves to sing God’s praises especially her own material since each song has a story. “Run to Jesus”, for instance, was birthed out of being in the sandwich generation: a stay at home mom taking care of her own family plus aging parents. She is currently a soloist for church music ministry and teaches voice at “Sing for the King” vocal studio in her hometown of Orangeville, Ontario.
