There is a kind of magic and wonder that almost shimmers in the air when two beautiful voices mix and meld together as one. Beckon (Beth Hamilton and Connie Rossitter) is a female duo with just such an enchanted pairing. Beth is thrilled to be returning to her hometown to play the beautiful St. Francis Centre. Born and raised in Ajax, Beth was avidly involved in the music program at Ajax High School. In 2008, her musical interests took a serendipitous turn when she met friend and singer-songwriter Connie Rossitter. Together the two musicians formed Beckon ~ a duo rapidly gaining recognition for their captivating original music and stunning trademark harmonies.June 2012 Beckon released their first full-length studio album “Beautiful Life”. With Juno nominated producer J. Richard Hutt (Tom Cochrane, Skydiggers, and The Northern Pikes) at the helm, the album is reaching broad commercial appeal and receiving radio airplay. “Beautiful Life” is a catchy, piano based pop album which includes musicians Mark Mariash on drums (Sarah Slean, Ron Sexsmith), Mark McIntyre on bass (Danny Michel, Madison Violet) and Dean Drouillard on guitar (Royal Wood, Sarah Harmer).Beckon breathes life into songs that emanate from a deep, genuine place in their hearts and resonate so loudly within our own. Quite simply, one listen “Beckons” you to hear more….
