Presented by A71 Entertainment

A notorious cult kidnaps a young woman, Gloria, and sacrifice themselves by the light of the locust moon. The next morning Gloria awakes, caked in dried blood and surrounded by corpses…but safe – or so she thinks. Years later, the locust moon is about to rise again and Gloria is captured once more by a surviving member of the cult. She is taken to a remote cabin where she learns that a demon has been growing inside of her all these years, and before the dawn it will rise.

Jeremy Fisher

Tuesday November 28, 2017 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Listening to Mint Juleps, the fifth album by two-time JUNO Award nominee Jeremy Fisher, is like ambling through the long and relaxed dog days of summer. The acoustic-driven collection of 12 songs reunites Fisher with his folk-drenched musical roots and is a veritable throwback to the golden era of the singer-songwriter.

Since 1998 he has completed the journey across North America an astonishing three time, and in 2010 he launched a unique tour of the west coast called The Malahat Revue with fellow artists Said the Whale, Hannah Georgas, and Aidan Knight. Together, they travelled by bike with gear in tow, and pedaled roughly 500km across British Columbia.

That sort of DIY attitude that infuses Fisher’s touring ethos replicates itself in the strong visual component of his music. Having become renowned for his hand-crafted music videos, he has produced animated works for artists including Adam Cohen, Hannah Georgas, Xavier Rudd, and Hawksley Workman.

Call him a renaissance man, or even a modern-day folk hero. Whatever you call him, it’s clear that Jeremy Fisher is bringing back the nearly forgotten art of making a great record from start to finish, and forging a career path that is built to endure.

Skydiggers

Wednesday November 29, 2017 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

In a time of confusion, anger and division, the Skydiggers’ 9th studio album, Warmth of the Sun, arrives as an eloquent and vital plea for compassion, honesty, healing and reckoningwith the truth, rendered in the group’s classic folk-rock style.

The 12-track album, which reflects the group’s elemental guitar-based origins and plaintive layeredvocal style, was recorded by longtime band associate Michael Timmins, of Cowboy Junkies, and willbe released on Oct. 20th via Timmins’ Latent Recordings label onCD, digital download and —in a first for Skydiggers’30-year career —on vinyl.

The title track, a powerful appeal for reconciliation and renewal, sets the tone for the album: “Can the warmth of the sun/Heal anyone?/Can the stars and the moon/Reveal the truth?”“I don’t think it was intentional, but I can hear a thread on these songs about reaching out, being honest with yourself and making a connection with people, in order togetto a better place. That’s definitely a goal for us, it always is,” says singer Andy Maize.

The urgency and immediacy of the songs is reflected in how the record was made. Several are presented in live-off-the-floor versions, often with live vocals intact, lending the LPan air ofimmediacy, vitality and intimacy, reflective of the band’s storied live shows. It’s also evidence ofthe strength of the road-honed band lineup featured on the record: the rhythm section of Derrick Brady (bass) and Noel Webb (drums), vocalist Jessy Bell Smith and the most recent addition, multi-instrumentalist Aaron Comeau.

Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Since 2008, the name MonkeyJunk has been synonymous with the emergence of a new kind of blues on the Canadian and international scenes. Continually pushing boundaries and blurring genre lines, the Ottawa Ontario-based trio has added an edge to their music by incorporating swampy blues & rock with thoughtful and intelligent lyrics.

Their fifth Stony Plain Records release, Time To Roll is unique in that it incorporates elements of all four of their previous recordings with added maturity in songwriting and instrumentation, cementing MonkeyJunk’s originality and sound as its own.

GARNET ROGERS, and KAREN SAVOCA with PETE HEITZMAN

Double Bill

Sunday January 21, 2017 – 4:00 PM
Presented by Folk Under The Clock

GARNET ROGERS has established himself as “One of the major talents of our time”. Hailed by The Boston Globe as a, “charismatic performer and singer”. With his “smooth, dark baritone”, (Washington Post) his incredible range and thoughtful, dramatic phrasing, Garnet is widely considered to be one of the finest singers anywhere. An optimist at heart, Garnet sings extraordinary songs about people who are not obvious heroes and of the small victories of the everyday.

Garnet describes his recent book, Night Drive-Travels with My Brother, as “stories about how Stan Rogers and I grew up together, discovered music together, and learned to play in a band and travel together. How the songs got written and recorded. What life was like on the road before there was an independent music scene…the bar fights, bike gangs and a thousand gigs in every corner of North America, playing folk music for a living in the mid 70’s and early 80’s”.

KAREN SAVOCA & PETE HEITZMAN are a New York based duo who have performed for decades throughout North America and whose chemistry leaves audiences uplifted.
“Grit and sensitivity…percussion and groove…spanning, soul, blues, r&b, roots and world rhythms, like a high wire act working without a net” – Six String, Columbus Ohio.

“A voice with this much strength and easy confidence is a rare find and [Karen’s] songs are filled with good humour, sensuality and nature’s simple pleasures” –All Music Guide.

Acoustic Guitar magazine calls Pete Heitzman, “A true virtuoso of groove, with a sly touch that, combined with Savoca’s drumming and spectacular soulful vocals, gives the duo the impact of a four-piece band.”

Together they have recorded eight albums, produced two albums for iconic songwriter Greg Brown and they recorded a wonderful album with Greg Brown and Garnet Rogers, Live at The Black Sheep.

It has been a few years since Garnet, Karen & Pete played together at Market Hall…it’s going to be a special night and a great way to kick off the new Year !

The Lonely – Celebrating The Music Of Roy Orbison

Thursday February 8, 2018 – 7:30 PM
Presented by Rock.It Boy Entertainment

Roy Orbisons music defined a world unto itself, a true master of the romantic apocalypse we all dread. Although Roy is counted as a rock n roll pioneer, the structure and theme of his songs defy convention.  Roy didn’t just sing beautifully, he sang broken heartedly.  He has been described as timeless, bordering on the eccentric and within a hairs breadth of being weird.

The Lonely are a group of experienced musicians and performers who share a deep love and appreciation of the songs of Roy Orbison.  The band approach the music with humble spirit and attempt to recreate the sensitivity and feel of the original recordings.  We hope you enjoy the show.

Corb Lund: “B.S With C.L.” Solo Acoustic Tour

Tuesday February 13, 2018 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

With nine studio albums under his belt and multiple CCMA, Juno, and Industry award wins, Corb Lund’s three decade long music career is a force to be reckoned with.  His seventh album, “Cabin Fever” (2012) debuted at #1 on the Billboard Canadian Charts.  Three of his albums have been certified GOLD, while his latest release, “Things That Can’t be Undone” (2015), cemented his status as one of the top country storytellers, and placed him on Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know.” The record received rave reviews from all parts of the globe.

“Finds Lund flirting in fresh sonic waters, while still keeping his sardonic mix of eerie lyrics and deceptively joyful vamps well intact.” – Rolling Stone Country

“The album is a high mark of a long career.” – NPR

“Melodically engaging and narratively compelling, Things That Can’t Be Undone furthers the case for Corb Lund as one of the best contemporary country songwriters.” – Popmatters

The Native Albertan has no plans of slowing down any time soon.  Aside from the many summer festival appearances planned for his band, Corb will embark on his first SOLO tour in his home country starting April 30th and running until May 20th covering most of the Maritimes and Newfoundland & Labrador.  This follows late ’16 successful USA shows in New York, Washington, LA and San Francisco among others.

Mouthpiece by Quote Unquote Collective (Toronto)

Friday February 23, 2018 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Public Energy

Post show Q&A: Immediately following the show

In the two years since its creation, Mouthpiece has become an international hit. A winner of two Dora Mavor Moore Awards, it wowed critics and audiences at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Mouthpiece is a harrowing, humorous, and heart-wrenching journey into a woman’s psyche. Interweaving a cappella harmony, dissonance, text, and physicality, it follows one woman for one day, as she tries to fi nd her voice. Two performers express the inner conflict that exists in her head: the push and the pull, the past and the present, progress and regression.

The Wooden Sky
Sunday February 25, 2018 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

**TICKETS GO ON SALE NOVEMBER 24 2017, 10:00 AM**

Swimming in Strange Waters, the title of The Wooden Sky’s fifth full-length album is an abridged quote from Frank Herbert’s 1965 sci-fi novel, Dune: “Survival is the ability to swim in strange water.” It’s a phrase that seems especially apt in 2017, as many of us are still reeling from the previous year. For Gavin Gardiner, the frontman of the Toronto-based indie rock band, the way to understand and reconcile these unknowns — from oil pipelines and refugee crises to his own family’s personal history— is through songwriting.

The band (made up of Gardiner, multi-instrumentalists Simon Walker and Andrew Wyatt, violinist Edwin Huizinga and drummer Andrew Kekewich) started writing and recording demos in a small farmhouse in rural Quebec in January 2015, but then put them aside as they embarked on a year-long tour in support of their previous album, Let’s Be Ready.

The resulting album is a sonic maelstrom that sees the band exploring unchartered waters, where textural psychedelia inspired by the Paisley Underground movement melds into quiet, acoustic cyclical guitar melodies. While Let’s Be Ready found the Wooden Sky writing a pure “rock and roll” album, Swimming in Strange Waters sees the band experimenting once again.

ANGELS IN AMERICA by Tony Kushner

Part Two: Perestroika

Sunday May 27 2018 – 7:30 PM
Presented by New Stages Theatre Company

We leave behind the opportunistic 80s to form a new sense of community in the 90s as people struggle to find a sense of meaning and resolution in their lives.

Angels in America: Parts 1 and Parts 2 each stands on its own merits and can be appreciated without seeing the other. Seeing them both in close succession is a special treat for this season.

*The participation of these artists is arranged by permission of Canadian Actors’ Equity Association under the provisions of the Dance-Opera-Theatre Policy.
