The Cocksure Lads (2014)

Presented by A71 Entertainment

Thursday August 13, 2015 – 7:30 PM

Meet writer/director Murray Foster (of Great Big Sea)
Special Event Q&A afterwards (and maybe a song or two!)

The Cocksure Lads, a band from England, come to Toronto on their first-ever North American tour. Ten minutes after arriving, they get into a fight over royalties and break up. The Lads scatter across the city, and spend the day drinking, fighting, meeting girls, falling in love, and searching for a claw-foot bathtub. Through it all they learn what it means to be a band – but can they patch things up before their big show that night?.

Saturday September 26, 2015 – 7:30 PM

It has been 15 years since a group of talented individuals within the Peterborough Singers formed an ensemble that is now proudly celebrated as Peterborough’s Music Ambassadors and a prominent member of the Peterborough Arts Community.  Five years ago, with the blessing of our “founding family”, we stepped out on our own and became incorporated as The Peterborough Pop Ensemble.  Today we are a thriving ensemble who performs throughout the Peterborough area and in other Ontario communities.

The celebration of our success will be marked by a very special concert – “The Best of the Pops”.
Ticket prices include a reception catered by Black Honey following the concert.

Harry Manx

Blues, World Music Songwriter

Presented by Folk Under The Clock

Friday February 5, 2016 – 8:00 PM

Harry Manx has been dubbed an “essential link” between the music of the East and West, creating short musical stories that wed the tradition of the Blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas.

In the mid 80’s he began a five-year tutelage with Rajasthani Indian musician Vishwa Mohan Bhatt (Grammy winner with Ry Cooder for ‘A Meeting By The River’) and began playing the Mohan Veena (20- stringed sitar /guitar hybrid.

Manx is a prolific artist with nine albums in eight years. He has received seven Maple Blues Awards and his albums have garnered five Juno nominations. His latest album ,’20 Strings and the Truth’ is a mostly instrumental album, which fans had been asking for.

His music is hard to resist, easy to digest and keeps audiences coming back for more !

“Watching Harry play tonight I feel like I learned something new…” – Bruce Springsteen  (after seeing Harry perform “I’m on Fire”)

“Canada’s most versatile and expressive blues player” – Billboard Magazine

Writing from a sonic menu that includes flavours of Irish, Scottish, folk and country, Dave transcends genre with songs that fill your senses and touch your soul.

Dave’s tenth album ,’No More Pennies’ is arguably his finest collection of songs to date. He co-wrote many of the songs with the likes of David Francey, Lennie Gallant, Bruce Guthro and Karine Polwart.  The lead signature track, ‘These Hands’ co-written with George Canyon is a ‘call to action’ style song reminiscent of Pete Seeger to inspire us to make good in this world.

The album won the 2013 Music Nova Scotia Award and ‘These Hands’ was awarded ‘Song of the Year’ at the ECMA’s
