Shaye is Kim Stockwood, Damhnait Doyle and Tara MacLean. Three talented musicians, all three of whom have had successful solo careers, combine their talents to create Shaye. Kim Stockwood, from Newfoundland, whose voice - open and exposed - teems with life. Her tenor tells stories from the toughest of places with the wriest of humour. Damhnait Doyle, also from Newfoundland, whose voice - deep, expansive, beautiful - can be threatening even when restrained, like the calm before the impending storm. Tara MacLean, from Prince Edward Island, whose voice - lilting and resilient - can carry you off in an easy breeze, then suddenly spurn you with the force of a gale. Their Long Awaited Album Lake Of Fire hit stores in November 2006.

Together, they are Shaye, one of the most exciting musical collaborations that Canada has seen in a long time. Shaye is the result of years of planning, of a year and a half of recording, a time when these three women confronted births and deaths, tragedy and deepened friendship. These are three voices that compliment one another effortlessly, without losing any of their distinct identities. Rarely will you find such perfectly textured harmonies.

The concert sounds wonderful! I wish I could come and see it but alas, I'm the other side of the Atlantic.

My husband and I founded Legacy of Life, also to raise awareness of the need for more donors and to inform about the amazing things which have been achieved through transplantation. We recently produced a beautifully illustrated free book of inspiring personal stories from organ/tissue donor families, recipients of transplants and medical professionals working in transplantation. The whole book can be previewed and downloaded from our website: You might like to take a look and tell your Canadian network about it. Good luck with the concert. I'm sure it will be a terrific success! Sue from Legacy of Life
