Carlos Del Junco & The Blues Mongrels

carlosdeljunco2014poster72dpi

Saturday, January 31, 2015 8:00pm

Carlos is one of those players whose music is so advanced that when it comes to awards, it’s either retire the category or rephrase the question “Best Harmonica Player Not Named Carlos”. This includes two Gold Medals from the Hohner World Harmonica Championship in Trossingen, Germany, as well as multiple national awards in Canada.

To say he 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.

Carlos and his Blues Mongrels deliver a no-holds-barred display of fun and melodic virtuosity. Carlos’ Blues Mongrels are Eric St. Laurent on guitars, Henry Heillig on bass, and Jorn Andersen on drums.

Ntu & Skwatta by Vincent S.K. Mantsoe

Presented by Public Energy
Tuesday, February 3, 2015 8:00pm

POST-SHOW TALK BACK with the artist following the show.

Vincent Sekwati Koko Mantsoe was born and raised in Soweto, South Africa. Born in the middle of Apartheid, he was more interested in cultural growth than in politics. As a child he and his siblings woke everyday to the sound of drums, when his grandmother, mother and aunt were greeting the Ancestors. A descendant of a long line of Sangomas (traditional healers), Mantsoe participated in traditional ritualsinvolving the use of song, dance and drumming. Mantsoe does not believe that he is a Sangoma, although he possesses their spiritual energy. Currently his creative activities revolve around the existential challenge of bridging between the past, the present and the future. Creating a universe through dance, he invites the audience in to join him on his sometimes humorous, more often painful, and always extremely physical journey.

An Oresteia

Presented by The Classics Drama Group
Friday, February 6, 2015 8:00pm

Contact: cdg@trentu.ca / 705-748-1011 x 7848

Agamemnon, King of Argos and general of the Greek expedition, has burnt Troy to the ground and is returning to Greece as a conquering hero. But his wife Clytemnestra hides adultery and murder in her heart. This will not be the homecoming he expects…

Aeschylus’ tragic trilogy, the Oresteia, is one of the earliest pieces of Western theatre. First performed in 458 BC, its emotional power, and its impact on the history of theatre cannot be overestimated.

Trent University’s Classics Drama Group presents, as a two-act performance, the first two plays of Aeschylus’ trilogy, Agamemnon and Libation Bearers. The show will be approximately 2 hours long with a brief intermission.

Marathon by Aharona Israel

Presented by Public Energy
Thursday, February 12, 2015 8:00pm

POST-SHOW TALK BACK with the artists following the show

Marathon has been a hit at festivals around the world since its debut in 2012 and comes to Peterborough between the new Progress Festival in Toronto and the Undercurrents Festival in Ottawa. Marathon uses endless running as a metaphor for the daily experience of young Israelis, in a highly physical theatre work that pushes its three performers to the limit. Which of them will survive? As time goes by, their journey becomes more difficult and gradually the wounds of Israeli society open up and its default options become apparent. Through the performers’ own stories the work reflects on subconscious elements in Israeli culture and mentality, such as a constant sense of emergency and a desperate holding onto ideas and ideals. Aharona Israel is a an interdisciplinary artist whose varied training – she is trained in dance and holds a B.A. in architecture – informs a body of work that combines intimate research into body and movement with a strong sensibility to social and political themes. Her works have been seen in festivals and theatres in Israel and across Europe since 2002.

With opener: Bowskill & Fewings

Stephen Fearing is a multiple JUNO Award-winner who has become a hero of the international roots and folk scene through his acclaimed solo performances, as well as his work with the supergroup Blackie and the Rodeo Kings. He currently resides in Halifax,  NS.  Originally from Belfast, N. Ireland, Andy White has been honored with many of Ireland’s most prestigious songwriting awards. He is an author and songwriter who has collaborated with Peter Gabriel, Sinead O’Connor and Neil and Tim Finn. Andy now calls Melbourne, Australia, home.

When Fearing and White first met backstage at the Winnipeg Folk Festival, they formed an instant friendship that launched a tradition of yearly co-writing sessions at Fearing’s home in Guelph. After a decade of these informal sessions, they bit the bullet and recorded their acclaimed 2011 debut, Fearing & White.   For their follow-up, Tea and Confidences was released in March 2014.  With over 20 albums between them, Fearing & White are a talented songwriting duo not to be missed!
