About the Event

2023 Nights of Grief & Mystery World TourJenkinson & Hoskins Craft a New Genre of Performance in Nights of Grief and Mystery

“My heart is still full and my tongue is drunk from last night.” MS, Franklin, TN

The Nights are coming on. Let’s see what that thirty + months of waiting was for. Let’s find out what we’ve got.

Israel – USA – Canada – Scandinavia – UK/Scotland – Australia/New Zealand before travelling across our home country, Oh Canada.

An improbable, ceremonial night of words, wonder and spirit work.

A Night of Grief & Mystery combines stories and observations by author/culture activist Stephen Jenkinson, drawn from his decades of work in palliative care, with original songs/sonics by recording artist Gregory Hoskins.

These two Canadian artists have been exploring the intersection of their work for 8 years, across 3 continents, in 3 recordings and 2 short films. They come to the road now in 2023 as they did in the beginning: the two of them, a singer and a storyteller, out into the mystery days.

”So utterly heartbreaking and beautiful.” MLF, Ithaca, NY

Concerts for Turbulent Times they surely are. Not poets, maybe, but the evenings are poetic. The Nights are musical and grave and raucous and stilling, which probably means they are theatrical. Love letters to life are written and read aloud. There’s some boldness in them. They have that tone. These nights have the mark of our time upon them, and they’re timely, urgent, alert, steeped in mortal mystery. They’re quixotic. They have swagger. What would you call such a thing? They called it Nights of Grief & Mystery.
