(London, Ontario)—The Fanshawe College Alumni Association will present Songs and Stories, an event featuring retired Canadian Astronaut Col. Chris Hadfield and folk trio Trent Severn at the Grand Theatre on Wednesday, October 7, 2015.


In 2013, Col. Hadfield captivated the world from the International Space Station with a number of memorable musical performances, including a cover of David Bowie's Space Oddity. Hadfield's debut album is set for launch this fall, with guitar and vocal tracks recorded while in space.

Joining Col. Hadfield on stage will be long-time friend, Fanshawe alumna and Juno-nominated Canadian singer-songwriter Emm Gryner and her folk trio Trent Severn. Gryner, a Fanshawe College Distinguished Alumni Award recipient, founded the group in 2011 alongside Dayna Manning and Laura C. Bates. The group released their self-titled debut album in November 2012. Named for the Trent-Severn Waterway in Southern Ontario, this Canadiana band is based in folk, roots and old country sounds.

Tickets are available through the Grand Theatre box office. Proceeds from the concert will support student success at Fanshawe College.

Date:               Wednesday, October 7, 2015

Time:              8:00 p.m.

Location:        The Grand Theatre, MainStage Theatre, 471 Richmond Street
