Craig Cardiff

Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre
Thursday December 8, 2016 – 8:00 PM

With a voice described as “warm, scratched, sad and sleepy,” Cardiff sings songs that expose the human condition, putting a magnifying glass to the clumsier and less proud moments. He can turn any setting into an intimate affair, infusing his music and lyrics with an uncompromising humanism.

Cardiff makes it a point to keep the relationship with his fans personal, inviting and accepting any opportunity to make his audience as much a part of the performance as he is.

LeE HARVeY OsMOND leeharveyosmondsmall

Thursday January 19, 2017 – 8:00 PM

There’s so much creative energy coursing through Lee Harvey Osmond’s veins, he can’t contain it all in one form of expression — or even one identity. Which is why the Hamilton, Ontario, man known as Tom Wilson has forged an alter-ego from a pop-culture mash-up of JFK’s killer and the famed family of singing Mormons. That’s in addition to his identification since the ‘90s as a member of now-defunct Canadian rock band Junkhouse and the very-much-alive Americana entity of Blackie & the Rodeo Kings.

Wilson has used the Osmond moniker for three solo albums, including his 2015 Latent Recordings release Beautiful Scars, produced by the Cowboy Junkies’ Michael Timmins. The songs on Beautiful Scars take more zigs and zags than a stitch job on a bad cut. Aaron Goldstein’s crying pedal steel might segue into Michael Davidson’s cool vibraphone notes or harmonies by Andrea Ramolo, who duets with Wilson on the beguiling, yet melancholy “Hey Hey Hey.” “Shake the Hand” echoes with funk and twang, while the fluttery flute groove brass/woodwind player Darcy Hepner blows in “Black Spruce” sounds as if it could have flown out of Creed Taylor’s ‘70s CTI jazz catalog. The delicate “Dreams Come and Go” casts a glow on Wilson’s rich, unvarnished baritone and accomplished picking, not to mention the potential of his co-writer and harmony vocalist, son Thompson. (He’s also heard on “Planet Love.”) On the creepy, haunting — and quite compelling — “Oh, the Gods,” Wilson’s whispers combine with drum rhythms, keyboard twiddles, electric guitar notes and other sonic effects to achieve an almost meditative drone.

Carlos del Junco & the Blues Mongrels Quartet

Saturday January 21, 2017 – 8:00 PM

It’s probably a good thing Carlos wasn’t there when the harmonica appeared in North America in the 1860s. Neil Young and Bob Dylan can probably roll with it when he says they are very mediocre harmonica players. Aspiring harmonica players Wyatt Earp and Billy the Kid might have overreacted and pulled out their pistols…

To say Carlos del Junco plays the harmonica is like saying “Jimi Hendrix plays guitar”. He blows the blues harp through a prism — suddenly it seems he’s holding every colour in the musical rainbow right there in his hands.

Simultaneously sophisticated and raw, his playing blurs the boundaries between blues and jazz hence the name for his band “The Blues Mongrels”. The emphasis is on blues, but they are not afraid to merrily traipse off in other directions delivering a seamless fusion of New Orleans second line grooves, swing, Latin, hip-hop or ska melodies, to swampy roots rock.

The Blues Mongrels are: guitarist Eric St. Laurent, bassist Henry Heillig (founded the nine piece Latin band Manteca) and drummer Charlie Coolie. Get ready to trash all you thought you knew about the harmonica. The Blues Mongrels deliver a no-holds-barred display of fun and melodic virtuosity.

HARRY MANX with Special Guest KEVIN BREIT

Presented by Folk Under The Clock
Sunday February 5, 2017 – 4:00 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.

Bboyizm (Gatineau/Ottawa)
Music Creates Opportunity

Presented by Public Energy
Saturday February 11, 2017 – 8:00 PM

PRE-SHOW CHAT with choreographer Crazy Smooth at 7:00pm in the lobby

In Music Creates Opportunity, Crazy Smooth and his Bboyizm dance company continue to explore themes of personal expression through authentic street dance, and to push the art form at its edges. While Bboyizm’s first stage piece, IZM, challenged audiences’ expectations of both street dance and the stage, Music Creates Opportunity considers the intersection of rhythm, expression, and community in the making of music and dance.

Music is featured as the critical link between dancers — dancers who may not speak the same language but who can find language together through the art form. In coming together, dancers realize personal expression, individualized interpretation, and explore their own inner music. Their environment becomes a theatre of meeting — sometimes harmonious and gentle; sometimes antagonistic and in conflict; always transformative.

Audiences will witness music as a universal language that offers a multitude of possibilities for expression — whether the music is an external force or created by the dancers themselves. They will also witness the innovative concept of Rhythmic Contact as Crazy Smooth and his dancers mix traditional forms of contact dance with music and rhythmic patterns, always within the context of street dance.

Music Creates Opportunity features traditional street dances including Rocking, B-boying, House Dancing and Pantsula, a street dance from Soweto, South Africa. As always, Bboyizm delivers precise and mastered technique; explosive movement; syncronicity and individualism together; and a festive and communicative spirit of movement, music, and life.

damned be this transmigration

Presented by Public Energy
Friday March 3, 2017 – 8:00 PM
Saturday March 4, 2017 – 8:00 PM

Public Energy is proud to present the full-length premiere of a play featuring music created by some of the city’s most talented theatre artists. Writer/actor Kate Story’s damned be this transmigration has already had a successful run in workshop form at the intimate Theatre On King. Now ready for its prime-time debut, the work will be seen with a new set – and dance numbers – created especially for the expansive Market Hall stage.

Based on beloved characters created by New Yorker Don Marquis, damned be this transmigration is a dancing, singing roller coaster ride of a play with text from Marquis’s famous newspaper column and music from the swinging twenties, alongside original compositions. We follow Marquis, played by Brad Brackenridge, banging out his column on a vintage typewriter, while his literary creations – Archy the literary cockroach, played by Ryan Kerr, and a morally-careless alley cat named Mehitabel, played by Kate Story – alternately distract him from his work and give his life purpose.

It’s a hot shot of entertainment amidst Marquis’s pointed social commentary – relevant to this day and age – and we get a glimpse into the raucous and often tragic life of Marquis himself. This is New York on the cusp of Dorothy Parker and James Thurber, arguably a New York at its literary zenith.

Jethro Tull’s Martin Barre Band

Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Tuesday April 11, 2017 – 8:00 PM

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.

The Best Of British Pop

Presented by Peterborough Pop Ensemble
Saturday April 22, 2017 – 7:30 PM

Emerging in the 1950s, British popular music was influenced greatly by North American musical styles but, by the 60’s, the unique sound of British artists headed across “the pond” resulting in a renaissance of musical freedom and creativity.  The national appeal of UK artists such as The Hollies, Herman’s Hermits, Elton John, Rod Stewart, The Rolling Stones and the Beatles soon gave way to a phenomenal international success which continues to this day.  Come celebrate the revolution with the members of the Peterborough Pop Ensemble on Saturday, April 22, 2017 as they present “The Best of British Pop”.  Showtime is 7:30 p.m. at the historic Market Hall Performing Arts Centre in Peterborough, ON.

Celebrate the extraordinary in the ordinary.

Thortonton Wilder’s timeless, beloved play transports you to the small town of Grover’s Corners, where teenagers George and Emily fall in love and live a life of simple joys and sharp sorrows in a community full of vibrant, unforgettable characters. OUR TOWN today is just as relevant as it ever was, because it reminds us what living is all about.

“Probably the finest play ever written.”
– EDWARD ALBEE, PLAYWRIGHT

“Our Town is easily me favourite play of all time. It may have been written decades ago but what it says about life and love is as true today as it ever was.”
– STEVE ROSS, ACTOR, STRATFORD FESTIVAL

What if what was truly inside you was forced to come out?

Amir has turned his back on his upbringing to pursue a “successful” life. But when he hosts a dinner party, a witty evening explodes into a battleground of race, religion, and class in the 21st century. A smash hit in New York and Toronto.
