Blackie And The Rodeo Kings – SOLD OUT

Saturday October 21, 2017 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre & kawarthaNOW.com

With special guest opener: Thompson Wilson

Blackie and the Rodeo Kings originally formed in 1996 when Colin Linden, Stephen Fearing and Tom Wilson came together to record what was suppose to be a one- off tribute album to the great Canadian songwriter Willie P. Bennett.
At the time, all three members were deeply committed to burgeoning solo careers that they had no intentions of putting on hold, and had no plans to turn Blackie into an ongoing concern.

Now twenty years later, 8 albums , one Juno award and several Juno nominations under their belts, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings have organically evolved into one of the finest roots-oriented bands in North America. Blackie and the Rodeo Kings remains one of Canada’s greatest musical treasures.

Sonia Aimy

Friday November 10, 2017 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

With her inimitable, velvety voice, Nigerian-born singer, songwriter and actress Sonia Aimy is the quintessential embodiment of contemporary African world music. Her sound blends Afro-jazz, highlife, and call-and-response African griot tradition, in easy flowing, yet virtuosic performances. Her irresistible rhythms and melody and infectious joie de vivre unite audiences of diverse backgrounds. Her second CD, Nigerian Spirit 2017, is an incantation of hope. It offers spiritual nourishment and intellectual stimulation, and is a joy to the senses.

Sonia Aimy has won fans in Europe, Africa and Canada through her on stage appearances with the likes of African musical legends Hugh Masekela, the Mahotella Queens, Miriam Makeba, IGNAWA and Williams Parker.  Sonia Aimy has also been recognized in Italy and Nigeria not only for her obvious talent but also for her commitment to end human trafficking, and for the deep sense of her Nigerian heritage, which gives a spiritual grounding to her work wherever she performs.

For her many endeavors, Aimy was chosen Best Positive Figure for Youths in Turin and Caserta (2005/2006); was named a Millennium Models Nominee among fifty Nigerians in the world by Nigeria’s Platinum Bank Limited in 2003; and in 2005 was nominated by Italy’s AfroLife magazine as one of the Top Ten leading Nigerians in that country.

CATHERINE MACLELLAN in concert

Sunday November 12, 2017 – 4:00 PM
Presented by Folk Under The Clock

Catherine MacLellan brings her new show, If It’s Alright With You-The Life and Music of My Father, Gene MacLellan, to Peterborough after this summer’s theatre run in Charlottetown, P.E.I.

The show is a collection of songs and stories and a look at her father who wrote Canadian classics such as Snowbird (Anne Murray) and Put your Hand in The Hand (Ocean).

Catherine lives in rural P.E.I. She’s worked at her craft, releasing a series of remarkable, creative albums, culminating in the Juno Award-winning The Raven’s Sun in 2014. She has also won multiple East Coast Music Awards, Canadian Folk Awards and Music P.E.I. Awards.

Her new album, If It’s Alright With You : The Songs of Gene Maclellan, contains 13 of her father’s most famous compositions, songs that propelled him to fame nearly 50 years ago. He died in 1995 when Catherine was still in her mid teens.

Catherine explains, “Now I want to share my dad’s music and it’s also an opportunity for me to get to know him better. The more I get to know his songs, the closer I feel to him. He would be happy to know his songs continue on, being remembered and given a new spark”.

Catherine is accompanied by her band and will use multi-media imagery in the show.

The new album is available at True North Records.

Can Chemistry be Green?

The Stairs Lecture in Chemistry

Presented by Trent University

Tuesday November 14, 2017 – 7:30 PM

The old way to prevent pollution was to capture pollutants before they left the factory or chemical plant, which is always a financial burden. The Green Chemistry approach—“Design the process so that pollutants aren’t made”—can reduce environmental impact while making industries more economically competitive. Economic benefits occur because designing processes to reduce pollution requires minimizing wasted energy and materials. What’s the catch? The right chemistry and societal conditions are necessary to bring these green processes to market. This presentation will discuss the origins of green chemistry, explain how new technologies are assessed for their environmental impact, and introduce, as an example of a new technology, a “greener” paint.

Dr. Phillip Jessop is the Canada research chair of Green Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry at Queen’s University, and technical director of GreenCentre Canada.

Séan McCann & Craig Cardiff

Friday November 17, 2017 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Séan McCann’s love for Newfoundland and Labrador folk songs shot him to international fame as a founding member of the renowned group Great Big Sea. After millions of albums sold, countless hit songs, and record breaking tours around the world, Séan realized that his 20 years with the band had to stop. Music is meant to connect, heal, and bring happiness. While Séan was giving that to thousands of people a night he was slowly losing his own way. Instead of seeking truth he was hiding behind his music. This was unfair to both himself and his fans so he left the band and started over.

In January 2014 Séan released his first post-GBS album. Produced by Joel Plaskett, “Help Your Self” is the sound of a man facing his demons and ultimately overcoming them. The songs helped him deal with his issues of addiction and abuse and showed him how to find strength in pain. It reminded him of the power of music which at one time would have been used to cast a Friday night spell over a sold out hockey arena on a Monday, but now finds him touring the country as a solo artist in intimate venues where he can sincerely connect with his audience in the way he always hoped to—face to face. Séan has also found himself using music as therapy, working with people who face physical, mental, and addiction challenges, and has become a sought after speaker trying to help others to help themselves find light through the darkness.

For the past two and a half years, Craig Cardiff has been passing around a Book of Truths during his shows and asking his fans to share something truthful in it — a story, a confession, a hope, a secret.  The book gives fans a chance to write down something they might be too afraid to say out loud, and it gives Cardiff an opportunity to connect with the people who come to his shows. Those entries aren’t always easy to read. The stories can be heartbreaking, and they can leave Cardiff wanting to do something, to find the person who wrote in his book and tell them to hold on for tomorrow, that things will be OK.

The Arnprior, Ontario-based folk singer worked with producers Ben Leggett (Faraway Neighbours, Ben Hermann) and Andre Wahl (Hawksley Workman, Luke Doucet) to record an album [Love Is Louder (Than All This Noise) Part 1 & 2] that is quite different than anything Cardiff has released before. Love Is Louder (Than All This Noise) is one-part boisterous group sing-along, one-part gentle lullaby.

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.

Micah Barnes

Thursday November 30, 2017 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Having cut his teeth in the cabarets and jazz clubs of Toronto while still a teenager Micah became a well loved singer songwriter on the Queen Street scene before joining The Nylons and touring the world. Recording with the A Capella Pop act brought Micah into the global music scene and landed him in Venice Beach, California where he launched a solo career touring the U.S.which led to his #1 international club hit “Welcome To My Head” and coverage in Rolling Stone Magazine as “an Indie artist to watch”.

Returning to the jazz oriented songwriting of his earlier years has resulted in a series of critically acclaimed solo recordings including his most recent “Domesticated”, which saw Micah returning to tour across Canada solo and with his trio. Micah’s new collection “New York Stories” pays homage to the rich musical history of the Big Apple with songs that describe a long distance romance using the rhythms of the Cotton Club, the Brill Building, The Apollo Theatre and classic Broadway. The recordings are stripped down in classic jazz style with Micah at the piano performing live off the floor with his trio featuring Daniel Barnes on drums and Russ Boswell on bass. On this recording The Micah Barnes Trio is joined by special guest Michael Shand on keys and features a duet with the legendary Jackie Richardson. The results are an assured collection of deeply personal and sophisticated songs that remind us that the deepest of musical traditions are always contemporary.

An East Coast Christmas with THE ONCE

Friday December 1, 2017 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Folk Under The Clock

The Once are a modern indie folk trio from Newfoundland. The members are Geraldine Hollett, Phil Churchill and Andrew Dale whose beautiful harmonies and tasteful instruments are the trademark of this band.

They have collected three Canadian Folk Awards, numerous ECMA Awards and named artist of the year by the Newfoundland & Labrador Arts Council.  Two JUNO nominations for best Roots/Traditional album, the most recent in acknowledgement of Departures (2014).

The Once’s newest collection of songs on, We Win some We Lose, encompass an arresting sense of loss, emphasized musically by Geraldine’s bewitching delivery of beautiful haunting melodies.

….”These three Newfoundlanders gracefully and evocatively offer gem like maritime music, foot stomping shanties, heart rendering ballads and accapella three part harmonies…” – Brad Wheeler, Globe & Mail

Mudmen In Concert

Saturday January 13, 2018 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Always entertaining and definitely unique, The Mudmen are a blast of Celtic energy whose members are known to be characters both on and off the stage. First discovered in 1993 as “The Campbell Brothers”, the band signed a deal with EMI Records and changed their name to “Mudmen” in 1998. Their music has been featured on Xbox and PlayStation games, NBC’s television show “Black Donnellys”, WWE Wrestling, Don Cherry’s  9, 19, 20, 21, 24, 27 hockey videos, The Mackenzie Brothers TWO-FOUR Special on CBC, HBO’S Shameless TV show, HNIC Coach’s Corner (Dale Hunter tribute), 6 music videos on Much Music, and they’ve reached top 20 on the Edge radio. In 2008 the Campbell Brothers were asked to perform on the new “Hockey Night in Canada” theme song produced by Canadian Icon Bob Rock, where Ron McLean quoted “Mudmen we love em”. This  lead to many opportunities  including a 3 month tour,  PBS special/DVD, and a performance at the Canadian Country Music awards with Johnny Reid.

With over 2500 shows to date, The Mudmen Robby Campbell, Sandy Campbell, Jeremy Burton, Mike Meacher and Dan Westenenk believe that nice guys can finish first. While enjoying life & what you do translates to all audiences.

Presented by New Stages Theatre Company

An internationally celebrated writer returns home to discover deep resentment from within her community. Inspired in part by Peterborough’s response to Margaret Laurence’s The Diviners in the 70s, the play is a compelling examination of art and censorship.

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.
