Thursday October 25 2018 – 7:30 PM
Presented by Ferreri Films

Genre: Drama, Thriller
Runtime: 83 minutes
Rated: 14A

After an E.M.P. (Electro Magnetic Pulse) weapon is deployed. North America is forced to live in pre industrial conditions. Anything electrical is useless, sending the country into anarchy. An introverted 11 year old girl must fend and fight for herself while trying to find her father.

Adriano Ferreri of FerreriFilms is thrilled to announce his first feature film “E.M.P. 333 Days” is coming to Market Hall Performing Arts Centre in Peterborough Ontario Thursday October 25th 7:30pm. There will be a Q&A with the director after the film.

After three years and an estimated 2500 hours of shooting and production, this passion project is complete and ready to be viewed by the world! The movie was locally shot in Peterborough and the Kawarthas and features local actors, Liam Davidson (4th line theatre), Dan Smith (Citiots), Martin Saunders, Derek Bell, Cheryl Ellis (Strutt Agency).  The main character is played by Ferreri’s teenage daughter, Rosa Ferreri, also her first role in a feature film. “I gave up weekends and every spare hour I had to finish this movie.  I wrote it to match our community and showcase our area but also to prevent travel costs and ultimately a higher budget. I have wanted to make a feature film since Film School, but life often has other plans, but it’s never too late to pursue your dreams.” Adriano Ferreri, FerreriFilms.

What Audiences are saying about the film:

“Exceeded all expectations! We all loved it. Everyone did an amazing job – what talent.”

“Excellent! I barely moved through the whole movie! Riveting right to the end! I would go see it again!”

“What an awesome movie! Exciting and made me jump in my seat. Well done, Ferreri Films! Be proud!”

Stories & Songs of Stompin’ Tom

Friday October 26, 2018 – 7:30 PM
Presented by Duncan Fremlin

Whiskey Jack performed as Stompin’ Tom’s All Star back up band for many years.  Band leader and banjo player Duncan Fremlin first toured with Tom in 1990 and continued to perform with this great Canadian troubadour until his death in 2013.   Also on the Market Hall stage will be Juno Award nominee and multi-instrumentalist, Douglas John Cameron;  Stompin’ Tom’s fiddler (and five time Canadian National Bluegrass Fiddle Player) Randy Morrison;  Tom’s bass player Eric Jackson and Canadian drumming legend, Al Cross.

For over 40 years, Whiskey Jack has been performing their unique brand of Canadian country, folk and roots music throughout North America.   In the 1980’s, they were featured weekly on CBC TV’s Tommy Hunter Show.   During those years, each Friday night, Stompin’ Tom Connors would tune in and watch their segment, The Ol’ Back Porch.  It was then that Tom became an avid Whiskey Jack fan.  Along with 2 million of his fellow Canadians, Tom enjoyed the band’s humour, soaring vocals and amazing musicianship.

When Stompin’ Tom returned to the recording studio and the road after a 13 year hiatus, he called Whiskey Jack and invited them to join him in the studio to record his acclaimed album, “Dr. Stompin’ Tom… Eh?” followed by a cross Canada tour.

The Once

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

With special guest opener: Megan Bonnell

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!

The Arrogant Worms

Friday January 18 2019 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

The year was 1991.  Presumably, some significant world events occurred.  The world truly changed in the fall however, when something truly magnificent happened in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. A beacon of hope was lit and has shone brightly ever since – The Arrogant Worms. The Arrogant Worms began as a comedy troupe performing songs and sketches on campus radio. The early feedback on the live shows was clear:  lose the sketches.  So the songs endured and they all remain because the band hates to throw anything out.

The songs were written to make fun of a big dumb world. Luckily, the world is still dumb and The Arrogant Worms (Mike McCormick, Chris Patterson and Trevor Strong) still have plenty to sing about. The shows are fast, furious and family friendly. The wit is quick, the satire is biting and the musicianship is second to none. Their appeal has earned them fans from kids to parents to grandparents to Princess Leia.

The Arrogant Worms have sold more than 160,000 copies of their 13 albums.  Their most recent offering is SPACE, a collection of 16 new songs released in 2014 that bravely tackles the hard issues like Local Politicians, Yoga Pants and Uncomfortable Chairs.  The band has played on three continents to crowds as large as 100,000 and were recognized in 2003 as the Touring Act of the Year by the Canadian Arts Presenters Association.

A quarter century after they began, The Arrogant Worms continue to provide tuneful and silly escapism for everyone who needs it. And if you think you don’t need it, well you’re wrong. You do. The Arrogant Worms know what’s best for you and what’s best for you is The Arrogant Worms.

Harry Manx

Sunday January 20, 2019 – 4:00 PM
Presented by Folk Under The Clock

HARRY MANX has spent years fusing eastern musical traditions with the blues, switching effortlessly between conventional guitars, harmonica, and banjo and the decidedly different Mohan Veena, a 20-stringed instrument invented by Manx’ Indian mentor Vishwa Mohan Bhatt. Manx is often referred to as the “Mysticssippi” Blues Man, because of his expertise in melding both East and West music together and therefore, “creating musical short stories that wed the Blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas”.

Over the last 10 years, Harry Manx released 11 Albums and has garnered a room full of awards including, “seven Maple Blues Awards, six Juno nominations, the Canadian Folk Award in 2005 for Best Solo Artist and won CBC Radio’s “Great Canadian Blues Award” in 2007″. His most recent accomplishment was receiving yet another Juno Nomination for “Blues Album of the Year”, for his release, “Bread and Buddha” in 2010.

His latest album is ‘Faith Lift’ which sees Harry performing his well known songs with a string ensemble.

David Myles

Wednesday April 24, 2019 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Nattily dressed in a suit and tie, wearing his trademark specs, he looks like Buddy Holly transposed to an after-hours supper club. But Myles’s music conveys a populist appeal that leaves no one lacking. – No Depression

Rock ‘n’ roll’s diverse, electrifying roots dig deep into David Myles’ tenth album, Real Love. You can hear them in the old-school Johnny Cash shuffle and lightning-in-a-bottle twang of “Night And Day.” They pull you by the hand and dance slowly to the swingy drums and ‘50s-era, Roy Orbison croon of “Easy.” With the rousing orchestral thrill of “Night After Night,” they sprawl out into simmering soul as Myles seethes at a lover who’s been running around with another. Over Real Love’s 13 tracks, written as razor-sharp as Myles’ signature suits, those roots grow into a spectacular family tree of American musical tradition—with all its blood, sweat, and tears—that’s as endlessly entertaining as it is riveting.

Steven Page

Thursday May 2  2019 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

**TICKETS GO ON SALE SEPTEMBER 14 2018 @ 10:00 AM**

Hot on the heels of his induction in to the Canadian Music Hall of Fame alongside his ex-bandmates in Barenaked Ladies, singer-songwriter Steven Page has announced the forthcoming release of the most forceful musical statement of his solo music career.  Discipline: Heal Thyself, Pt. II, will be released on Friday, September 14, 2018 via Fresh Baked Goods / Warner Music Canada.

Ahead of the album’s release, Steven has today launched the vitriolic first single, “White Noise,” a naked look at the current political discourse south of the 49 th parallel.

“I grew up in a household where social justice was a fundamental value, and I always believed that it was a fundamental Canadian value as well as a central Jewish one,” says Page.  “I’ve watched how the term has been twisted and perverted by the Right over the last several years in an effort to diminish the voices of reason.

Although I grew up politically aware, in a left-leaning household (which, in Canada, was not regarded as anything sinister until the mid-90s and beyond), it wasn’t until I discovered the politically-charged music coming from the UK in the 1970s (the Clash, The Jam) and 1980s during the Miner’s Strike and the Red Wedge movement (Billy Bragg, Style Council, Communards, etc) that I became excited by the power of music and activism.  This song pays tribute to that music, and was written in the wake of last year’s events in Charlottesville.  The open displays of racism and antisemitism, and the chants of “Jews Will Not Replace Us” made me grab my guitar and tell them I’d be more than glad to replace them.”

Recorded at Fresh baked Woods Studios just outside of Toronto and Vancouver’s Doghouse of Thunder Studio with longtime live bands Odds and The Original Six, and frequent collaborator Craig Northey, Discipline is Page’s fifth solo album and the spiritual follow-up to 2016’s Heal Thyself Pt. I: Instinct.  Musically, the album tips its hat to many of Page’s influences including the aforementioned punk rock movement and David Byrne as well as a nod to the Bee Gees and the Zombies.

SPECIAL OFFER: A digital download of Steven Page’s new album, Discipline: Heal Thyself, Part 2, is included with every ticket for this show. You will receive an email with more details about this offer approximately 7 days after your purchase.
