Gord Downie, The Sadies & The Conquering Sun
gorddowniesades

Presented by The Wolf 101.5 FM
Tuesday, April 29, 2014 – 9:00 PM

Gord Downie, The Sadies, And The Conquering Sun is the new collaborative project featuring two of Canada’s most distinct and original musical artists. The long-time Toronto friends first recorded together for the Lake Ontario Waterkeepers in 2006. Over the next seven years, recording sessions came about ‘urgently but slowly’ and lead to a project that personified ‘the action of first-thought-best-thought’ ethos.

Gord Downie needs very little introduction to music fans.  He is the enigmatic lead singer, lyricist and guitarist for Canada’s storied band, The Tragically Hip. No strangers to the Peterborough area, The Sadies began their journey of spreading their rusted psychedelia sounds over ten years ago in 1994.

Melissa Payne In ConcertMelissaPaynesmall

CD Release Friday May 9, 2014 8:00pm
With special guest James McKenty

Seventh Fire Records presents  Melissa Payne and her full band present her new album, produced by Greg Keelor. Like many artists before her, singer-songwriter Melissa Payne grew up in an area where musical talent ran deep and was never in short supply. That was Ennismore ON. Inspired by family and friends and fiddle lessons from the internationally acclaimed Leahy family, Melissa developed a love for playing and performing music at an early age. By 18, she had taught herself to play guitar and began writing songs. With her fiddle and guitar and a batch of original songs she began building a fan base in the Peterborough On area performing wherever she could. She also managed to land a job as a tour hand on the road with world renowned fiddler Natalie McMaster. It was during that time she learned first hand about the determination and dedication it takes to be a successful touring artist. The past couple of years have been busy with playing, touring and writing including appearances at Mariposa, the Boots & Hearts festival and the Peterborough Folk festival.
