Shawn Mullins & Max Gomez

Saturday June 23, 2018 – 8:00 PM

After a series of indie record releases, Shawn Mullins’s critical breakthrough came when 1998 Soul’s Core album shot him to fame on the strength of its Grammy-nominated No. 1 hit, “Lullaby” followed by AAA/Americana No. 1 “Beautiful Wreck” from 2006’s 9th Ward Pickin’ Parlor. His song, “Shimmer,” was used in promotion of the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney and was included on the Dawson’s Creek soundtrack. He co-wrote “All in My Head” which was featured in episode one of the hit TV sitcom “Scrubs.” Mullins also co-wrote the Zac Brown Band’s No. 1 Country tune “Toes.” In early 2002, he formed the super group The Thorns with Matthew Sweet and Peter Droge. Mullins most recent album, My Stupid Heart, was released in 2015, the theme of which, Mullins says, can be summed up most succinctly by the song title, “It All Comes Down To Love,” the guiding force behind just about every song on the album.

Mullins is currently embarking on a recording project in conjunction with the 20th Anniversary of the release of his album Soul’s Core, which came out July 17, 1998!

Though still only in his twenties, Max Gomez has always had the heart of an old soul. As a child, the first songs he learned to sing were originally recorded in the 50s by Johnny Cash. As a teenage guitarist he adopted Big Bill Broonzy as his blues master. And as a budding performer, he apprenticed in the rarefied musical climate of northern New Mexico, where troubadours like Michael Martin Murphey and Ray Wylie Hubbard helped foster a folk and Western sound both cosmic and cowboy. Gomez represents more than the sum of his influences—he’s got that ineffable and instantly recognizable x-factor called talent. Melodies that flow naturally. Trenchant lyrics that express wise-beyond-his-years observations on the ways of the heart. Laconic phrasing in a cafe mocha timbre, and guitar skills that can stand alone. In short: the whole package.

Judging by the company he keeps, Gomez is there positioned to emerge as a prominent voice of Americana’s next generation. Since the release of his debut album, Rule the World, in 2013, he’s shared billing on hundreds of stages with stalwarts of the genre like Shawn Mullins, James McMurtry, Buddy Miller, Jim Lauderdale, Patty Griffin, and John Hiatt.

Jethro Tull’s Martin Barre Band

Tuesday September 25, 2018 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

For the past five years Martin has toured the world with his own band to play the “classic” music from the Jethro Tull catalogue, and also many new tracks written by Martin from his albums AWAY WITH WORDS and ORDER OF PLAY, plus his latest album, BACK TO STEEL.

For 43 years Martin Barre was the renowned guitarist of Jethro Tull, and his role in the band cannot be overestimated. Bruce Eder wrote on allmusic.com, “His playing has provided much of the energy that allows the band to soar on record and in concert.” His unique sound and style contributed enormously to their success, which includes several chart topping albums, eleven gold and five platinum albums, a Grammy Award for CREST OF A KNAVE in 1988, and album sales exceeding 60 million units. Tull continues to be played worldwide, representing an important part of classic rock history.

Martin’s guitar playing has earned him respect and recognition; he’s been voted among the best ever in the USA and in the UK for his playing on “Aqualung.” Beyond numerous Jethro Tull albums, Martin has plied those award-winning chops with many other distinguished artists, including Paul McCartney, Phil Collins, Gary Moore, Joe Bonamassa and Chris Thompson. He has shared a stage with such legends as Jimi Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.

Redoubtable drummer George Lindsay, alongside super songwriter and bass player Alan Thomson form the core of Martin’s accomplished band, with vocals performed by the talented and distinctive Dan Crisp. All members are committed to giving the Tull fans and a broader audience the chance to hear tracks not performed for many years with a few surprises along the way.

Steve Hill

Saturday October 6, 2018 – 7:30 PM
Presented by Shantero Productions

Steve Hill —“the most spectacular one-man band on the planet”—is touring in support of his critically acclaimed Steve Hill: The One-Man Blues Rock Band. Released May 11, the album immediately shot to number one on the blues charts on Itunes Canada. An overnight sensation 20-plus years in the making, he is now being recognized as an ambitious and raucous force on the Canadian and international blues-rock scene, picking up an impressive load of hardware, including a JUNO for Blues Album of the Year, and multi Maple Blues awards for Electric Act of the Year, Guitarist of the Year, Recording/Producer of the Year and Entertainer of the Year.

When it comes to one-man bands, this guitarist and singer-songwriter extraordinaire knows no limits. As chrishighreviews.com writes, “The man not only sings with such a raw, barbed vocal style underpinned by a deliciously handled guitar, he also comes loaded with two kick drums, a hi-hat cymbal—played by virtue of the stick attached ingeniously to the machine head of his guitar—and, on occasion, a harmonica.”

“Unfathomable that a single musician can possess that much talent.” – Rock and Blues Muse.

“Steve Hill’s rise can only be described as stratospheric!” – Manchester Rock

“ …the top star on the Canadian blues scene right now” – Bob Mersereau, CBC

“If you love Blues based rock and you’ve never heard of Steve Hill, I guarantee you will become a fan after you hear his music.” – Dedicated Rocker

Come see what all the buzz is about!

The Young ‘Uns (From England)

Sunday October 14, 2018 – 4:00 PM 
Presented by Folk Under The Clock

From the Teesside area in the northeast of England come one Britain’s best loved folk trios. Winner of the 2018 BBC 2 Folk Awards for Album of The Year, Strangers.

Sean Cooney, Michael Hughes and David Eagle deliver”their irresistible mixture of quick-fire banter, potent social commentaries, and harmonies to die for” says Colin Irwin of Penguin Eggs magazine.

They have won over large audiences at Vancouver, Mariposa, Canmore and Calgary Folk Festivals in the past couple of years and are huge in the UK.

Sean Cooney wrote all the songs from Strangers, such as the Hartlepool Pedlar, a tale of Michael Marks, an Eastern European Jewish refugee who arrived in the northeast of England and went on to set up the Marks & Spencer store. Ghafoor’s Bus talks of the humanitarian effort by a local man who converts a bus into a travelling kitchen to feed refugees and migrants.

Don’t miss this trio; they will make you laugh and cry with their songs about  people in our world today…absolutely brilliant !

Fortunate Ones

Monday October 15, 2018 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Newfoundland duo Fortunate Ones’ second album Hold Fast is a study in resilience and partnership.

And Catherine Allan and Andrew O’Brien know a lot about what it takes to make a good partnership. Their debut album, The Bliss was nominated for a JUNO Award, garnered two #1 singles on CBC Radio 2’s Top 20, won the 2016 “Rising Star” ECMA, the 2015 “Vocal Group” Canadian Folk Music Award, and four 2015 Music Newfoundland and Labrador Awards.

Over the last five years they have played over 300 shows together and have even garnered the attention of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau when he singled out a track from their 2016 Christmas EP All Will Be Well, as one of his favourite listens for the holidays.

With the whirlwind that has been the band’s first 5 years it seems apt that the first track on this record, “Northern Star” calls on listeners to reflect, stay strong, and move forward.

Oysters 3 (Oysterband Acoustic – From England)

Saturday October 27, 2018 – 8:00 PM 
Presented by Folk Under The Clock

This concert marks the return of Britain’s legendary folk rock band…this time as an acoustic trio.

OYSTERS 3 consist of the three founding members of Oysterband; John Jones (lead vocal, melodeon), Alan Prosser (acoustic guitar, mandolin,banjo, vocals), Ian Telfer (fiddle, vocals).

They make modern-folk based British music, acoustic at heart, sometimes intense, sometimes rocking. Great Big Sea topped the music charts in Canada when they recorded the Oysterband song, ‘When I’m Up I Can’t Get Down’.   Since 1978 they’ve toured in 35 countries-festivals, concerts, bars, rallies, jails… bring ‘em on !

They have won 5 BBC Folk Awards, recorded 13 studio albums and one dvd. They even have their own well respected UK Folk Festival – The Big Session.  This year they celebrate 40 years together and they are still full of ideas pertinent to our time !

“Tremendous, joyous, remarkable…the cream of their genre” – Rolling Stone.

Get your tickets early for this legendary group in this very rare tour of Canada.

The Once

Thursday November 22, 2018 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Folk Under The Clock & Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Newfoundland’s, The Once, return after a sold out Christmas concert last year, this time to promote and showcase their new album Time Enough.

The trio consists of Geraldine Hollett (lead vocals), Phil Churchill (vocals, guitars, kick drum) Andrew Dale (vocals, mandolin, banjo, bouzouki).

On this their fourth studio album, The Once offer some of the most vulnerable and honest material of their career. They stay true to the root strength of their harmony driven sound, while extending the borders into fresh yet familiar territory.

They craft a sonically understated, but emotionally fulsome sound that accomplishes what they’ve always done so well : stun listeners with what Amelia Curran calls, “ Perfect vocal harmonies, thick enough to stand on”.

Peterborough folks love this Newfoundland band and always look forward to hearing a new album!
