Voodoo Glow Skulls

With guests: The Cheap Suits + K-Man & The 45s

Wednesday September 13, 2017 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

In their 24 years of existence, the Voodoo Glow Skulls have an impressive list of achievements. 9 albums, one million records sold, appearances in exotic locations like Brazil and Japan as well as the creation of a record store, record label, recording studio and a music venue attests to the remarkable creativity and energy of the band. Formed in 1988, Voodoo Glow Skulls meshed hardcore punk, traditional ska, tough guitar riffs and the Mexican music of their roots to create the prototype for the West Coast ska-core sound. Unflinchingly honest, their songs often used humor to comment on harsh political realities – from racial inequity to unrest overseas. Singing in both Spanish and English, Voodoo Glow Skulls’ bilingual musical tradition has been a hallmark of the band since they began.

The core of the band since the beginning has been the three Casillas brothers, Frank, Eddie and Jorge. With a list of accomplishments that might make some bands ready to slow their pace, the band shows no signs of slowing down. Voodoo Glow Skulls dubbed their sound “California street music” – a perfect description of their high octane mix of rock, punk, ska and hardcore.

The Outside Track

Tuesday September 19, 2017 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

A stunning synthesis of virtuosity and energy, The Outside Track’s marriage of Canadian, Scottish and Irish music and song has been rapturously received around the world. Hailing from Scotland, Ireland, Cape Breton and Vancouver, its five members are united by a love of traditional music and a commitment to creating new music on its foundation. Using fiddle, accordion, harp, guitar, flute, step-dance and vocals these five virtuosos blend boundless energy with unmistakable joie de vivre. Each player within The Outside Track is a master of their chosen instrument with the band stacking up an impressive amount of international awards. This amount of talent alone would be enough to recommend the band but in this case the end result is so much greater than the sum of the parts. The line up comprises Norah Rendell (Canadian Traditional Singer of the Year nominee), Mairi Rankin (Beolach), Ailie Robertson (Live Ireland Winner,,BBC Young Trad Finalist), Fiona Black (BBC Fame Academy Winner), and Cillian O’Dalaigh.

Presented by Public Energy

POST SHOW ARTIST TALK: 8:45-9:15pm

Through high tech multimedia projection, light, sound, and dance, Vancouver’s hottest new multidisciplinary performance group, Hong Kong Exile, brings us their two most iconic performances to date, NINEEIGHT and Room 2048 in a riveting double bill. Cinematic images mix with contemporary dance, pop music, and smoke, to reveal diasporic experiences of loss, desire, and nostalgia. In digital light, bodies sway, shake, and run— oscillating between the gestures of the mundane and the sacred, and featuring excerpts from Hong Kong filmmaker Wong Kar Wai’s seminal films. Hong Kong Exile shows us a fractured and turbulent world in times of political, social and geographical transition.

The Creepshow

Friday September 22, 2017 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Formed in dirty back alleys and dive bars in 2005, THE CREEPSHOW has redefined the saying “No Rest For The Wicked”. Since their inception, the band has brought their genre-defying blend of country-tinged, psycho punk rock n’ roll to over 25 countries worldwide with plans to conquer many more as soon as possible. Fronted by the vivacious Kenda (guitar/vox) and backed by the swarthy Sean “Sick Boy” McNab (stand-up bass/vox), The Reverend McGinty (sermons/organ/vox) and the righteous Sandro (skins), THE CREEPSHOW is an explosion of live energy that is a tasty treat for the ears and eyes alike… Whatever you do though, don’t write THE CREEPSHOW off as just another psychobilly band. While their lyrics draw inspiration from b-movies and early horror films, they’re also full of personal insight and personal stories dealing with everything from addiction to mental health to tales of love gone horribly wrong.

Chloe Charles

Thursday October 5, 2017 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Even before the release of With Blindfolds On, Chloe Charles’ sophomore orchestral-soul-pop album received accolades with its opening track, Black & White, winning the 2014 Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the Lennon Award for Pop. Sparsely orchestrated, yet characteristically lush, the vulnerable song Black & White sets the tone for this album’s labyrinthine soundscape through loss, love and yearning, lust and joie de vivre with her 3 dimensional orchestral romance and a hypnotizing voice reminiscent of Billie Holiday’s sultry poise, Adele’s intensity, the grit of Amy Winehouse and the courage and mischief of Bjork.

Peter Katz

Saturday October 14, 2017 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

“If you want to make something that’s like nothing you’ve made before, then you have to shake yourself up, go beyond what’s comfortable and known and let yourself feel disoriented, overwhelmed, even intimidated. Those moments, when you lose your bearings, when you’re forced to sink or swim, are the moments when you have an opportunity to rise to the occasion, to surprise yourself, to do the things you didn’t know you could do. That’s what making this album was for me, I’m so proud of the process, and I’m so proud of the result.”

The result is ‘We Are The Reckoning’, a striking new collection of 11 original songs from JUNO-nominated and Canadian Screen Award-nominated singer-songwriter and recently crowned Best Male Vocalist in the popular NOW Magazine Best-Of-Toronto reader’s poll (readership of ½ million) Peter Katz. After 3 successful national and international tours in support of his 2012 release ‘Still Mind Still’, Peter spent the better part of the past 2 years writing well-over 50 new songs while collaborating on some of them with an impressive list of co-writers in Los Angeles, London, and at home in Toronto (a new approach for Peter who had always typically written alone). His hard work paid off when he attracted the attention of co-producers Royal Wood (multiple Juno-Award Nominee) and Bill Lefler (Ingrid Michaelson, Cary Brothers), who signed on to help him turn those songs into Peter’s most sonically-rich album to date.

Blackie And The Rodeo Kings

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

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.

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.

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.

Skydiggers

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

Chemistry, passion, energy and evolution are a few words that come to mind when Andy Maize and Josh Finlayson talk about twenty-five years together in Skydiggers.

“It all started in the beverage room of the Spadina Hotel. That is essentially when the band came together.” says Josh. “Andy and I performed there as a duo as part of Andrew Cash’s Monday night series called Acoustic Meltdown. When Andrew released his debut album and could no longer host the night, we took it over. We put an ad in Now Magazine answered by Ron Macey, and together with Wayne Stokes and Andrew’s brother Peter Cash, who was quietly writing some amazing songs, Skydiggers were born.”

A quarter of a century later, thanks to years on the road and in the studio, Skydiggers are not only riding all of those years of momentum but continuing to evolve as well. According to Andy Maize and Josh Finlayson one of the keys is chemistry.

“You can spend your life searching for chemistry” Andy muses. “For any relationship to remain vital and continue to grow you need chemistry. We were lucky to have found that early on with each other. We were also fortunate to play four very big shows before our first record even came out” remembers Andy. “We opened for 54-40, The Tragically Hip, Cowboy Junkies and Blue Rodeo early on and I think we learned a thing or two about chemistry from those experiences. After all, those four bands are also still together.”

Josh agrees and also points out that in order to stay creative and pertinent you need to constantly challenge yourself. “Change and evolution are imperative. To bring a visible energy to the stage every night, you need to remain passionate by pushing yourself as songwriters and performers. You need to be constantly evolving yet trying to remain timeless at the same time.”

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.

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.

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

Expect a rousing, sing along, kitchen party/christmas concert, filled with Newfoundland charm and wit. They last played Folk Under The Clock 5 years ago !

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.

The Mudmen have 9 studio recordings and will be celebrating their 20th anniversary in March of 2018.

ANGELS IN AMERICA by Tony Kushner

Part Two: Perestroika

Sunday May 27 2018 – 7:30 PM

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.
