Judging by her ambitious output, award-winning musician and songwriter Little Miss Higgins has kept busy during the pandemic. Her new, multifaceted project, The Fire Waltz, is both a five-part miniseries podcast and a full-length album. As well, she will be sharing the songs live on a Western Canadian tour starting October 25, 2022, in Regina SK. Higgins will be joined by co-creator Kris Demeanor and bass player Gilles Fournier. Inspired by stories of Higgins’s great-grandmother, Eva Bersay, The Fire Waltz is a one-of-a-kind audio experience. A riveting tale of an extraordinary woman, The Fire Waltz follows Eva on her journey to Canada from Jersey Island, off the northern coast of France, during the early 1900s, depicting the power and perils of love, the realities of a world at war and the uncertainties of the aftershocks. Using old photos, postcards, letters, a travel journal and stories gathered from family, the music-driven project took shape in October 2019. Higgins and her two main collaborators, Kris Demeanor and Eric Rose, began by telling the story through song titles. After that, eighteen songs were written in 12 days. Initially, it was intended for theatre, but when live entertainment changed due to the global pandemic, Higgins switched the approach to be completely auditive. She wanted to link the songs with narrative, drawing on ideas of old radio plays. Script was written, more artists were gathered, and even more songs were created. Working both in studio and remotely, Higgins and her extremely talented team from across Western Canada recorded the project and Season 1 of The Fire Waltz born
