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.

IF TRUTH BE TOLD by Beverley Cooper

Sunday February 11 2018 – 7:30 PM
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.

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.

Great Great Great (2017)

Thursday February 15, 2018 – 7:30 PM
Canadian Indie Film Series

Presented by A71 Entertainment

Directed by Adam Garnet Jones

Rating 14A

Actress/Writer/Producer Sarah Kolasky and Writer/Director Adam Garnet Jones will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.

Most relationship movies are about fiery beginnings and endings, but the reality is that most of us are somewhere in the middle. Our relationships aren’t underscored by symphonies of strings and romantic declarations, and they don’t end in a murderous rage. They’re just fine, most of the time. Until they’re not.

At the deliciously queasy core of Great Great Great is the lead performance by newcomer Sarah Kolasky, who delivers a vulnerable and deeply relatable portrait of a woman who makes us squirm with discomfort while asking us to love some of the most unlovable parts of ourselves.

Bowie Lives

Saturday February 17, 2018 – 8:00 PM
Presented by www.thewiremegazine.com

With special guests Broken Harmony.

Bowie Lives returns to the Market Hall a year after the show’s debut in 2017. “Go ahead, be skeptical….then talk to me after he sings ‘Young Americans’! What a night!” says CHEX TV’s Teresa Kaszuba. Fans proclaim “Beyond Amazing!!” Join award winning vocalist Michael Bell and a band of master musicians as they present the music of David Bowie in a multi-media extravaganza. From the Spiders from Mars to the Scary Monster, Bell conjurs the vocal performances and the hits that span 4 decades. After David’s untimly passing in 2016, Bell was approached with offers to pay tribute to the artist that inspired him over the course of his own musical recording and stage career, and he couldn’t resist. “I was born to sing Bowie” states Bell. Don’t miss the return.

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

With special guest openers: Grounders

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.

Downchild Blues Band

Friday March 2, 2018 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre & Peterborough Folk Festival

It’s tempting and not altogether far-fetched to apply an engine metaphor to the mighty Downchild, one of the planet’s foremost most fêted, longest-running blues outfits with quite possibly the best back story ever told.

Roaring through bracing, high-octane performances since 1969, the band founded and continuously steered by harmonica and guitar ace Donnie “Mr. Downchild” Walsh is as vibrant today as when Dan Aykroyd and the late John Belushi were inspired by Downchild for their brilliant Blues Brothers venture back in the 1970s. The pair elevated Downchild’s “Shotgun Blues” and Walsh’s “(I Got Everything I Need) Almost” to smash status on their 1978 Briefcase Full of Blues record.

Actually, the 2017 iteration of Downchild — with each member boasting a minimum of 20 years of service — might be the most electrifying yet. For proof, simply check out the sextet’s towering, lid-lifting, juke-joint jumping 18th studio album, Something I’ve Done, a bona fide group effort and a sonic highlight in a 50-year career spilling over with them.

The Real McKenzies

Sunday March 11, 2018 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Special guest opener: BOIDS

It I can be said, without any exaggeration, that The Real McKenzies are a national treasure.
Founded in 1992 by the larger than life, punkrock poet laureate, Mr Paul McKenzie, this merry band of miscreants has spent a quarter century circumnavigating the globe to bring the McKenzies gospel to an ever-adoring throng of rebels, scallywags and ne’er do wells. There’s not many bands that can boast of a twenty five year career as staggeringly adventurous, wildly tempestuous and utterly death-defying as The Real McKenzies. It would be a serious mistake to write them off as just another Celtic punk band. They are an unstoppable juggernaut of touring mayhem. A ferocious troupe of insanely talented minstrels, storytellers and entertainers melding traditional acoustic and electric to create a sound like no other. Their list of accolades is long. From sharing the stage with the likes of NOFX, Rancid, Flogging Molly, Metallica and Shane McGowan to appearing in film, books and video games to signing with the legendary Fat Wreck Chords, their story continues to astound.

Due to his fairylike and miraculous tulip trade, his passionate love-life and his turbulent scuffles with the dubious local business practices, he becomes a living legend – to then suddenly disappear. Thirty years later, an Italian police inspector (Giancarlo Giannini) attempts to unravel the story, but struggles to distinguish fact from fiction. With the help of the young Canadian woman Anna (Ksenia Solo) he discovers what truly happened.

Love Jacked (2018)

Thursday April 12, 2018 – 7:30 PM
Canadian Indie Film Series

Presented by A71 Entertainment

Rating PG

Starring: Keith David (Greenleaf), Amber Stevens West (22 Jump Street), Mike Epps (Resident Evil, The Hangover), Shamier Anderson (Wynonna Earp), Marla Gibbs (The Jeffersons), Lyriq Bent (She’s Gotta Have It)

Post-screening Q&A with Director Alfons Adetuyi

MAYA (Amber Stephens West) is headstrong with artistic ambitions, a strong contrast to what her father ED (Keith David) wants: a dutiful daughter to run the family hardware store. Ed is shocked when Maya takes her assertions of independence a step further and decides to travel to Africa.

While looking for inspiration, she meets MTUMBIE (Demetrius Grosse), an African charmer who sweeps her into a whirlwind romance. Before she knows what’s happening, she and Mtumbie are engaged and her father is furiously trying to persuade her to forget Africa and come home. This hardens her resolve to go ahead with the marriage until she finds Mtumbie in bed with another woman. Heartbroken, she flies home and is met by her father’s smug, “I told you so”. Instead of admitting that her father was right, she tries to save face and tells her family the wedding is on!

LOVE JACKED is a sophisticated small town Romantic Comedy with a twist: it involves a fake wedding, a fake funeral and a love triangle spanning two continents: North America and Africa. OK it has a lot of twists and a few turns, but it’s told in the tradition of classic Romantic Comedies such as THE FATHER OF THE BRIDE with a strong female protagonist and an overbearing father with African-American twists.

Presented by Folk Under The Clock

JAMES KEELAGHAN

Keelaghan has been called “Canada’s finest singer-songwriter” by one of the most respected and lauded music critics/historians, Dave Marsh.  Armed with a songbook that has enthralled  audiences around the world, Keelaghan’s life as an artist is one that is a perpetual journey on so many levels.

He says, “To go along with a lifelong accumulation of influences, there have been these opportunities to work with equals, whether it be Oliver Schroer, Hugh McMillan or Oscar Lopez”…and Jez Lowe.

TONY McMANUS

McManus has come to be recognized throughout the world as the leading guitarist in Celtic Music, while a master in many other styles. Self taught from childhood, initially through listening to the family record collection, the session scene in Glasgow and Edinburgh provided the springboard for gigs around Scotland. The release of Ceol More in 2002 was when Tony’s stature as a world class musician reached a new level and was the Critics Album of the Year in Acoustic Guitar Magazine. He is invited annually to the Chet Atkins Festival in Nashville and has appeared at prestigious guitar festivals around the world. He also plays with the quartet Men of Steel (Dan Crary, Beppe Gambetta and Don Ross).

He is in great demand as a studio musician, having contributed to over 60 albums. His 2009 release , The Maker’s Mark, saw him showcase 15 of the finest luthier built guitars available. The following year he was invited to contribute music to the soundtrack of Oscar winning director Neil Jordan’s film Ondine, starring Colin Farrell.  He has released several instructional DVD’s and his latest album, Mysterious Boundaries, has been lauded as “a masterpiece” (John Renbourn).

Against The Wind: Canada’s Premier Bob Seger Experience

Saturday April 21, 2018 – 8:00 PM

The launch of ATW in 2015 marks 35 years since Bob Seger’s, award-winning album and hit single, “Against The Wind ” was destined to become etched into the public’s minds and hearts.

ATW sets the stage for memories and new experiences. This band is dedicated to honouring Bob Seger, paying homage to the undeniable motto – “Rock and Roll Never Forgets”. ATW’s song-list includes selections from Seger albums that are obvious mega hits throughout the 60, 70’s and beyond.

“You just can’t shake a memory that feels so good, so right” – that’s why booking ATW makes total sense in a time when, “the feel good”, factor is what the audiences are yearning to feel and re-experience, a guaranteed recipe for success.

Concert, corporate and private events are prime venues for ATW and what they bring to audiences.

Bring this power-house to today, to your audience now!

“It’s Your World”, “In Your Time”, it’s that simple and extraordinary – It’s ATW.

An Evening with Danny Michel

Thursday May 24, 2018 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

With nominations for three JUNOs, the Polaris Prize, The CBC “Heart Of Gold” and a pile of albums under his belt, Danny Michel is unquestionably one of Canada’s finest songwriters. His thoughtful lyrics & earnest performances have earned him a devoted fan base. A musical chameleon, able to slip into many genres with ease. An adventurous & fearless artist. A master at striking the right balance between unpredictability and meeting expectations, leaving you wanting more as soon as it’s over.

Past critics have praised Danny’s lyrics for having “something to say” without coming off preachy. Topics range from the environment (“Feather, Fur & Fin”) to big questions (“If Gods’ on your side, then who’s on mine”). Others ask “Who’s Gonna Miss You when you’re gone?” a song which explores karma asking “Did you live it right?/did you live it wrong?”.

At the moment Danny is sitting in front of a blank canvas contemplating where his next album is going to take him. It could go anywhere from here. Knowing Danny, wherever it goes – it will be an adventure”

Canadian Indie Film Series

Presented by A71 Entertainment

Starring: Bea Santos, Zoë Belkin, Christine Horne

Post-screening Q&A with Director Audrey Cummings

Darken is set in a bizarre, mysterious, and violent unknown world with danger and death around every corner. After a young woman is accosted by a dying warrior in the middle of the street, a bizarre incantation propels her into the realm of Darken – a violent prison-like world of labyrinthine rooms, interconnected with no apparent rhyme or reason and no way of escape. As she fights for survival within this brutal place, she finds allies who are rebelling against the rule of a self-appointed religious despot who demands allegiance to an all-powerful god called “Mother Darken.” Eve and her allies must fight with everything they have if they are to have any hope of surviving the horrors Darken has in store for them.
