About The Show:
Hilary Ladd is shedding her indie, folk music roots and jumping head first into the spotlight with her first entirely pop music based performance. From explosive dance numbers to raw, personal moments, Breastmilk + Tears is a full blown concert experience with a side of vulnerable, poignant story telling. It’s a show that defies genre that will leave you cry-dancing in the aisles. Don’t miss this one night only experience, live at the Imperial Theatre in Saint John.
Hilary Ladd is a multi-faceted musician, actor, writer and teacher who’s been appearing on stages for the past 29 years. Over the last decade she has worked as the lead vocal director at InterAction School of Performing Arts, the only arts school of its kind in Atlantic Canada.
Her first love and main focus has always been as a singer-songwriter. Ladd is best known for her honest and vulnerable lyrics, and heartfelt story-telling. In 2017 she released a collection of songs with her band Ladd & Lasses titled “She Wanders”, written post-divorce as an act of self rediscovery. With less time to wander these days, Ladd began writing high-energy pop songs between diaper changes and loads of laundry. Not knowing how to perform them as a folk artist, she opted to write them into a narrative concert entitled Breastmilk + Tears.
With the help of artsnb and Music New Brunswick, Ladd has written the script which includes 14 original songs. She has gathered a team of collaborators and mentors to bring this project to life.
