Presented by A71 Entertainment

Post-screening Q&A with Director Jamie Kastner
Genre: Documentary

The latest documentary from filmmaker Jamie Kastner who brought us The Skyjacker’s Tale, is an fascinating twisted and dangerous tale of Canadian art fraud — There Are No Fakes.

Kastner exposes the story of a painting, apparently by iconic Native artist Norval Morrisseau, that leads rockstar Kevin Hearn (Barenaked Ladies) who buys it, into the shocking world of an art forgery ring in Canada’s far north.

“My job here was to expose certain truths, I suppose you could say, and hopefully inspire the audiences to act on this information now that it has been put before them,” – Director Jamie Kastner,

William Prince presented by Peterborough Folk Festival

Thursday August 15, 2019 – 8:00 PM

The 30th Anniversary of the Peterborough Folk Festival kicks off with an intimate concert with William Prince a JUNO Award-winning singer-songwriter whose music is full of emotionally charged experiences that linger in memories. Raised on the Peguis First Nation of Manitoba, Canada, William has been honing his craft since the age of nine when he first picked up the guitar and piano. His biggest inspirations include Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Charley Pride, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson and most significantly, his preacher and musician father.

Recorded in just ten days throughout 2015, William alongside producer/collaborator Scott Nolan, created his full-length debut album, Earthly Days. He garnered honours such as “Aboriginal Artist of the Year” at the 2016 Western Canadian Music Awards and “Contemporary Roots Album of the Year” at the 2017 JUNO Awards. In a full circle moment, he inducted Bruce Cockburn into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame and earned praise from not just Cockburn, but fellow inductee Neil Young.

Lead by debut single “Breathless,” 2018 will see William boldly take the next step of his journey with Earthly Days being released worldwide.

Donovan Woods (Peterborough Folk Festival Kickoff)

Friday August 16, 2019 – 8:00 PM

Donovan Woods was curious: What if he re-recorded Both Ways, his acclaimed 2018 record that won him a Juno Award for contemporary roots album, and distilled its 12 songs to their bare essence? An “acoustic reimagining,” if you will.

“We started from scratch,” he says, from the instrumentation to his vocals to a fresh understanding of the heartache and regret that underpinned those songs. “There are no recording elements carried over from that album. It’s all brand-new.”

Woods ended up with The Other Way, his new album that brims with inspired interpretations of Both Ways that are intimate yet startling in their urgency.

You’ve always been able to hear and connect with Woods’ words. But an odd sensation washes over you when the varnish is wiped off of Woods’ songs. Somehow the lyrics burrow with even greater resonance and then linger like little smoke rings. For a producer, Woods enlisted ace guitarist Todd Lombardo, who produced Woods’ song “Portland, Maine” in 2015 and wrote and played most of the guitar parts on Kacey Musgraves’ Grammy-winning Golden Hour.

Face to Face with Séan McCann of Great Big Sea

Sunday September 29, 2019 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Séan McCann bought his first guitar in 1989 which he affectionately calls “Old Brown”. Old Brown has been around. He was there for the first song Séan ever wrote. He was there as Séan founded Great Big Sea, the acclaimed and multi-million album selling band that would change his life. He was there to hold Séan up many a night as he struggled with addiction, and he has been there to help guide Séan out of the darkness with music as his medicine. Today, Séan continues to cross this country with Old Brown by his side, sharing his truth with people face to face and using music to heal as a speaker and mental health and recovery advocate.

Good Lovelies

Tuesday October 1, 2019 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Kerri Ough, Sue Passmore, and Caroline Brooks – immensely talented vocalists and songwriters in their own right; however, it’s their voices interwoven in harmony – powerful and pure, organic and inspiring – that elevates the Good Lovelies from impressive to peerless.

Over the course of their decade-plus career, they’ve covered plenty of stylistic ground, adding tinges of pop, roots, jazz, and even hip-hop to their country folk core at various points.

The trio first united in 2006 for a one-off performance and has since compiled a catalogue of four studio albums, a pair of EPs, a live album, and Christmas collection. Through it all, the unmistakable sound of their intertwined voices has been the sonic anchor, and that remains true as the Good Lovelies now look to push further into the mainstream with their most accessible and pop-influenced output to date.

The Good Lovelies are:
Lead vocals, electric and acoustic guitars: Caroline Brooks
Lead vocals, keyboards, banjo, guitar: Kerri Ough
Lead vocals, percussion, guitar: Susan Passmore
Upright bass: MJ Dandeneau
Bass: Steve Zsirai
Drums: Mark Mariash
Piano: Robbie Grunwald

Breabach

Sunday October 6, 2019 – 4:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Frenzy of the Meeting is the latest release from multi award-winning Scottish contemporary folk band Breabach. Building on the ideas and experimentation from their 2016 album Astar, this new work is explorative and creative. Produced in collaboration with Eamon Doorley (Julie Fowlis, Danú) and engineered by Iain Hutchison sees the band take exciting steps towards developing a more expansive sonic landscape.

Alongside traditional songs, contemporary tunes and original compositions from each band member with the material largely themed on todays frenzied experience of global politics, media and the natural world as well as focusing on the positive fevered hive of innovation, creativity and pioneering music within the Glasgow music scene, to where the band belong.

The album comes after two years of hectic global touring post release of Astar. In that time the band picked up ‘Best Folk Band’ and ‘Best Album’ at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards as well as nominations for ‘Best Group’ at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and ‘European Album of the Year’ in the Songlines Music Awards.

Breabach unite the talents of Megan Henderson (Fiddle, Vocals), James Lindsay (Double Bass, Vocals), Calum MacCrimmon (Bagpipes, Whistle, Bouzouki, Vocals), James Duncan Mackenzie (Bagpipes, Flute, Whistle) and Ewan Robertson (Guitar, Vocals, Cajon). Acknowledging and respecting the origins of both the music they play and the roots of the band whilst embracing the future with new ideas, energy and belief is a key attribute of the band and another theme that is strongly conveyed through this new release.

Steve Poltz

Photo Credit: Laura Partain

Saturday October  19, 2019 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

He trick-or-treated at Liberace’s house, planned a two-day stay in Amsterdam that ended a month later with him escaping the city under the cover of darkness, and was Bob Hope’s favorite altar boy. Alone, these anecdotes go well with a fistful of peanuts at a cocktail party. But on top of these add that this person also co-wrote the longest-running song on the Billboard Top 100, had a debut solo album that earned three and a half stars in Rolling Stone, and was awarded the title of “San Diego’s Most Influential Artist of the Decade” at the San Diego Music Awards. What you end up with is one of the most engaging, twisted, and prolific songwriters of our time – Steve Poltz.

“Paying dues” is certainly not a foreign concept to most successful musicians, but Steve seems to have single handedly redefined what that phrase means. Born among the hearty, seafaring folk of Halifax, Nova Scotia, his parents up and moved him to Palm Springs, where he was raised. After a rather liberal approach to the liberal arts at the University of San Diego, Poltz began his colorful musical career selling pipe nipples. Let us forego the fact that pipe nipples exist, let alone the fact that an entire industry seems to be devoted to their commerce. No, we need to confront how it is that a pipe nipple guy from Palm Springs ended up flying around the world in a private jet, playing songs like “Sky$!@#$#ofToronto” to stadiums full of rabid, screaming fans.

OK, here’s the thing- like the question of what Richard Nixon ever saw in Pat, there are no easy answers. What we do know is that at some point, Steve decided to bid the pipe nipple industry sweet adieu, and became a full time musician. He started out playing bars and coffee houses around San Diego, eventually forming the college radio favorite band, The Rugburns. The Rugburns are well-known and appreciated by DJs all over the country, due in no small part to the fact that the anthemic “Dick’s Automotive” was long enough to afford them the opportunity to relieve themselves and then some during their shows. The Rugburns blended punk, pop, folk, and if you listen close enough, you might just hear the slightest hint of a whisper of the possibility of Swedish Christian Death Metal. They were so freaking good that they found themselves in a crappy old van 300+ days a year, playing packed and sold out clubs and bars all over the country. The weird thing is that with a catalogue of literally hundreds of songs and three albums behind them, they developed a fan base that put the “U” in cult-like. Steve would write a song onstage in one city, and two nights and two time zones later, there would be people screaming for that very song at another show.

So there he is, more prolific than two rabbits on E, traveling the country playing songs about truckers feeding strychnine-laced granola to deer, and he starts writing songs like “Lockjaw,” an achingly sweet and sincere love song. What do you do with that? What happens when you’re in this wildly popular band, rocking your mojo coast to coast, and you find yourself coming out with gorgeous heartbreaking acoustic tapestries? You go with it.

Dan Mangan is a two-time JUNO award-winning & two-time Polaris Music Prize listed musician and songwriter.

2018 brings Dan’s 5th full length More or Less, an album about witnessing birth, and in some ways rebirth.

Produced by Grammy Award winning producer Drew Brown (Radiohead, Beck, Blonde Redhead, Charlotte Gainsbourg) and Simone Felice (The Lumineers, Bat For Lashes), More or Less features singles “Troubled Mind”, “Fool For Waiting” and “Just Fear”.

Aside from his own recordings, Dan has scored a feature film (starring Simon Pegg) as well as TV series for Netflix & AMC and has infrequently been a contributing writer for several international publications. Dan has toured extensively in North America, Europe and Australia. In 2017, Mangan co-founded Side Door, an online platform that connects hosts with artists for intimate performances in unique spaces. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia with his wife and two sons.

Samantha Martin & Delta Sugar

Saturday February 1, 2020 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

2018 has proven to be the break-out year so long deserved by Samantha Martin and Delta Sugar. In November 2018, it was announced that “Run To Me” has been nominated for 4 Maple Blues Awards at the 2019 edition (Album of The Year, Songwriter of The Year, Entertainer of The Year, and Female Vocalist of The Year). The group’s latest recording, entitled Run to Me, was released in April 2018. Produced by Darcy Yates, the album is a massive step forward for both Martin and Delta Sugar. Over the course of the project’s ten tracks, everyone written by Martin solo or in tandem with Curtis Chaffey or Suzie Vinnick, the album explores the full range of the vicissitudes of love: desire, betrayal and, at times, emotional and sexual satisfaction. As a collective, the songs reflect remarkable growth on Martin’s part as a songwriter. The lyrics are incisive, the melodies are constantly arresting and the harmonies and arrangements call up the best of the soul and blues sounds of Stax Records and such contemporary artists as Leon Bridges, Sharon Jones and Lee Fields. With over 500 shows under their belt in the last 4 years, Canadian Independent Music Association (CIMA) has honored Samantha Martin and Delta Sugar with the certification “Road Gold.” CIMA certifies Canadian artists as “Road Gold” when they have sold over 25 thousand tickets to Canadian fans over a twelve-month period.

Martin is the lead singer, songwriter and focal point of the group. A dynamic front woman, she possesses a stunning voice that is capable of summoning up tidal waves of spine-tingling emotion in one instance while delicately bringing out the nuances of a gut wrenching lyric in the next. A torrid force of nature, night after night she takes audiences to emotional peaks while leaving them stunned with her sheer pin-you-against-the-wall power.

While Martin is a powerhouse unto herself, the vocal alchemy of Delta Sugar is not the work of a single talent. In combination with what she likes to term her “co-vocalists,” Sherie Marshall and Mwansa Mwansa, the vocal blend Delta Sugar produces is pure, unadulterated gospel-tinged, neuron-tingling magic where the sum is even richer than the already soul-melting parts.
