Steven Page

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

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.

MARC JORDAN – Both Sides

Wednesday May 8, 2019 – 7:30 PM
Presented by Shantero Productions

A multi-disciplined artist and musician, Marc Jordan never fails to hold an audience in thrall as he mines the very essence of a song. As Ross Porter says, “If music is doing its job, one of its functions is to act as a salve to the troubled times in our lives. Marc performs … with so much affection and imagination, the mission is accomplished.” Jordan is a renowned and prolific songwriter, his works having been covered on a staggering 30-million-plus recordings by artists including Rod Stewart—who secured a worldwide #1 hit with Rhythm of My Heart, Diana Ross, Chicago, Bette Midler, Joe Cocker, Bonnie Raitt, Cher, Josh Groban, Natalie Cole, Jordan’s wife Amy Sky and many more. The walls of his home studio groan with the weight of awards; he is a painter, actor and playwright; Jordan hosts JAZZ.FM91’s top-rated Songs I Wish I Had Written; as well as continuing to tour himself, and as Lunch At Allen’s with fellow Canadian singer-songwriters Murray McLauchlan, Ian Thomas and Cindy Church.

Both Sides, Jordan’s 18th release, is a mix of his own material and standards, such as Joni Mitchell’s Both Sides Now, Lou Reed’s Walk on the Wild Side, Curtis Mayfield’s People get Ready, and Rolling Stones’ Wild Horses, all of which contributed to the soundtrack of life in the 60s and 70s. “Marc Jordan knows the importance and impact of a good song, whether it comes from his pen or someone else’s.” Featuring a stellar group of musicians—Marc Jordan (vocals and guitar), Lou Pomanti (piano), Marc Rogers (bass), Kevan McKenzie (drums) and Mark Lalama (accordion and keyboards)—Both Sides promises a hypnotic evening of compelling vocals, where the lines between jazz and pop become blurred, and Jordan’s trademark clear, emotional and poetic delivery renders each song autobiographical.

Carrie Alice Williams Concert

Wednesday June 5, 2019 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Robert Young

As the brother of Neil Young, the internationally acclaimed singer and songwriter, I have been approached for decades by many very talented artists seeking access to the entertainment industry hierarchy. It is enjoyable to meet them and, when possible, assist them in their careers.

Carrie Alice Williams will be in concert on June 5, at Market Hall Performing Arts Centre in Peterborough, ON. Recently, at the private “shindig” subsequent to the marriage of my brother and Daryl Hannah, Carrie played and sang her song,  How ‘Bout The Moon , to an audience that included Joni Mitchell and many, many, very accomplished artists from various genres. All in all, about 140 people were enthralled by Carrie’s vocal performance and musicianship.
“She nailed it, Bob,” said Tim Mulligan who has done Neil’s sound since about 1972.
At a private gathering at the hotel later in the evening Neil and Lukas Nelson ( Promise Of The Real ) spoke admiringly of the sophistication of her piano playing. “ How ‘Bout The Moon “  is one of many great songs.

Carrie has recorded at Neil’s studio in California. Her talent is exceptional. The poetic depth in her songwriting is in the same league as accomplished and recognized artists. Joni Mitchell inspired her and was there to talk with Carrie after Carrie sang her song. Of all those who have crossed my path, she is the one whose talent is magnetic.

In late January, she opened two acoustic shows for Neil in Minneapolis, MN. So, to all aspiring and established singer songwriters, musicians, and music lovers in the Peterborough area and elsewhere, I suggest you attend  Carrie Alice Williams’  concert At Market Hall. You will enjoy it. – Bob Young

Trouble In The Garden (2019)

Wednesday June 12, 2019 – 7:30 PM
Presented by A71 Entertainment

Directed by Roz Owen

Raven, a radical eco-activist, is jailed for protesting development on disputed Indigenous land. Long estranged from her adoptive family, she never imagined her brother Colin would be the one to bail her out. Compelled to stay at his suburban home, she discovers he’s in real estate — pre-selling houses on the very land she’s been trying to save. Adopted, disowned, and now under house arrest, this is a story of betrayal and reckoning — with love, land, and blood.
