Cantrip

Thursday August 9, 2018 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

The name is an Old Scots word meaning a charm, magic spell or piece of mischief and it aptly describes the unexpected twists and turns in their musical arrangements, likewise the compelling potency of their musicianship. Originally formed as a quartet, Cantrip sprung from a local session in Edinburgh nearly twenty years ago. Their driving music immediately caught the attention of the masses, and they were quickly signed to the Foot Stompin’ label. With their first album “Silver” (2001) in hand, Cantrip made its way across the water to the United States, where they were received with roars and shouts (of enjoyment). After years of significant touring, the band parted ways with Foot Stompin’ and began producing albums on their own. Two albums later (“Boneshaker” in 2005 and “Piping the Fish” in 2008), Cantrip had cemented itself as a perennial figure. After a period of hiatus in which children were born and continents were left for new ones, Cantrip redefined its sound. Trimming itself to a trio, the band tightened its arrangements while expanding its influence. New inspirations began creeping into the sound, complementing the traditional foundation of the band. This more mature sound debuted on their recent release “The Crossing” (2016) and has been catching the ear of listeners and concert goers all over again. Now, in recognition of 20 years of performing the band is returning to its roots and revisiting Silver, with a live re-release slated for Autumn 2018 that looks to be as exciting and full of energy as ever.

Wednesday August 15, 2018 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Trent Film Society

Neo (Keanu Reeves) believes that Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), an elusive figure considered to be the most dangerous man alive, can answer his question — What is the Matrix? Neo is contacted by Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss), a beautiful stranger who leads him into an underworld where he meets Morpheus. They fight a brutal battle for their lives against a cadre of viciously intelligent secret agents. It is a truth that could cost Neo something more precious than his life.

Terra Lightfoot

 

Friday August 17, 2018 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Peterborough Folk Festival

With New Mistakes, Canada’s Terra Lightfoot offers up something rare: the kind of genuine document that can only come from a road-tested breed of songwriter and performer. Shot through with the guitarist-vocalist’s powerful, bluesy soul, vivid lyrics and ferocious six-string virtuosity, it’s an unforgettable outing.

Produced by Gus van Go and Werner F (Arkells, Sam Roberts Band, Wintersleep), New Mistakes is a heady journey. As poignant as it is rollicking and vulnerable as it is rowdy, it cruises long and sometimes lonesome highways that lead everywhere from brokedown dive bars and endless prairie skies to mountain ranges and the Mojave Desert.

Built around Lightfoot’s killer live band, the session impresses on all counts. It’s Lightfoot’s hungriest and most raw album to date, able to mesmerize with graceful melodies one moment, and step into the ring to deliver a hurricane of hooks or a heart-wrenching chorus the next. Lifted by bright waves of organ and classic roots-rock vibe, “Ruthless” nails that lethal dynamic, slowly building a story of deep connection fraught by distance, until letting loose its knockout crescendo.

It’s Lightfoot’s relentless commitment to the cause that made this album possible: racking up endless, hard-earned miles, forging and letting go of relationships, and seeking out every sliver of truth in a life on the road that is anything but easy to navigate. It’s an odyssey without a map to guide the way, filled with infinite missteps. But if they all sound as wild and beautiful as this, let’s hope Terra Lightfoot never stops making New Mistakes.

Jethro Tull’s Martin Barre Band

Tuesday September 25, 2018 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

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.

Steve Hill

Saturday October 6, 2018 – 7:30 PM
Presented by Shantero Productions

Steve Hill —“the most spectacular one-man band on the planet”—is touring in support of his critically acclaimed Steve Hill: The One-Man Blues Rock Band. Released May 11, the album immediately shot to number one on the blues charts on Itunes Canada. An overnight sensation 20-plus years in the making, he is now being recognized as an ambitious and raucous force on the Canadian and international blues-rock scene, picking up an impressive load of hardware, including a JUNO for Blues Album of the Year, and multi Maple Blues awards for Electric Act of the Year, Guitarist of the Year, Recording/Producer of the Year and Entertainer of the Year.

When it comes to one-man bands, this guitarist and singer-songwriter extraordinaire knows no limits. As chrishighreviews.com writes, “The man not only sings with such a raw, barbed vocal style underpinned by a deliciously handled guitar, he also comes loaded with two kick drums, a hi-hat cymbal—played by virtue of the stick attached ingeniously to the machine head of his guitar—and, on occasion, a harmonica.”

“Unfathomable that a single musician can possess that much talent.” – Rock and Blues Muse.

“Steve Hill’s rise can only be described as stratospheric!” – Manchester Rock

“ …the top star on the Canadian blues scene right now” – Bob Mersereau, CBC

“If you love Blues based rock and you’ve never heard of Steve Hill, I guarantee you will become a fan after you hear his music.” – Dedicated Rocker

Come see what all the buzz is about!

The Young ‘Uns (From England)

Sunday October 14, 2018 – 4:00 PM 
Presented by Folk Under The Clock

From the Teesside area in the northeast of England come one Britain’s best loved folk trios. Winner of the 2018 BBC 2 Folk Awards for Album of The Year, Strangers.

Sean Cooney, Michael Hughes and David Eagle deliver”their irresistible mixture of quick-fire banter, potent social commentaries, and harmonies to die for” says Colin Irwin of Penguin Eggs magazine.

They have won over large audiences at Vancouver, Mariposa, Canmore and Calgary Folk Festivals in the past couple of years and are huge in the UK.

Sean Cooney wrote all the songs from Strangers, such as the Hartlepool Pedlar, a tale of Michael Marks, an Eastern European Jewish refugee who arrived in the northeast of England and went on to set up the Marks & Spencer store. Ghafoor’s Bus talks of the humanitarian effort by a local man who converts a bus into a travelling kitchen to feed refugees and migrants.

Don’t miss this trio; they will make you laugh and cry with their songs about  people in our world today…absolutely brilliant !

Fortunate Ones

Monday October 15, 2018 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Newfoundland duo Fortunate Ones’ second album Hold Fast is a study in resilience and partnership.

And Catherine Allan and Andrew O’Brien know a lot about what it takes to make a good partnership. Their debut album, The Bliss was nominated for a JUNO Award, garnered two #1 singles on CBC Radio 2’s Top 20, won the 2016 “Rising Star” ECMA, the 2015 “Vocal Group” Canadian Folk Music Award, and four 2015 Music Newfoundland and Labrador Awards.

Over the last five years they have played over 300 shows together and have even garnered the attention of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau when he singled out a track from their 2016 Christmas EP All Will Be Well, as one of his favourite listens for the holidays.

With the whirlwind that has been the band’s first 5 years it seems apt that the first track on this record, “Northern Star” calls on listeners to reflect, stay strong, and move forward.

April Verch

Sunday October 21, 2018 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Fiddler, singer, and stepdancer April Verch has never been content to stand still. One of the most esteemed fiddlers of her generation, Verch has been immersed in a deeply explorative musical journey since the age of three, with new chapters unfolding each step of the way. On February 17, 2017, Verch released The April Verch Anthology (Slab Town Records), an 18-track collection celebrating her life’s work.

Verch began her full-time touring career in 2000, and has since performed at elite festivals and performing arts centers worldwide. One might suspect a performer with as many talents as Verch would pause to take a breath, or need to somewhat compartmentalize her skills during a live performance. But on stage, Verch is almost superhuman, flawlessly intertwining and overlapping different performative elements. She stepdances while fiddling. She sings while stepdancing. Sometimes she sings, steps and fiddles all at once, with apparent ease and precision. Verch is – as they say – a triple threat in performance, her live show a beautiful companion to her music: versatile, robust, and masterfully executed.

With eleven albums and years of touring under her belt, Verch has moved from upstart prodigy to mature and reflective songwriter, interpreter, and storyteller. The April Verch Anthology is a stunning collection of this lifetime of songs and experiences. The story is in these tracks, and together they bring joy, enlightenment, and proof of just how relevant an old tune can be.

Oysters 3 (Oysterband Acoustic – From England)

Saturday October 27, 2018 – 8:00 PM 
Presented by Folk Under The Clock

This concert marks the return of Britain’s legendary folk rock band…this time as an acoustic trio.

OYSTERS 3 consist of the three founding members of Oysterband; John Jones (lead vocal, melodeon), Alan Prosser (acoustic guitar, mandolin,banjo, vocals), Ian Telfer (fiddle, vocals).

They make modern-folk based British music, acoustic at heart, sometimes intense, sometimes rocking. Great Big Sea topped the music charts in Canada when they recorded the Oysterband song, ‘When I’m Up I Can’t Get Down’.   Since 1978 they’ve toured in 35 countries-festivals, concerts, bars, rallies, jails… bring ‘em on !

They have won 5 BBC Folk Awards, recorded 13 studio albums and one dvd. They even have their own well respected UK Folk Festival – The Big Session.  This year they celebrate 40 years together and they are still full of ideas pertinent to our time !

“Tremendous, joyous, remarkable…the cream of their genre” – Rolling Stone.

Get your tickets early for this legendary group in this very rare tour of Canada.

The Once

Thursday November 22, 2018 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Folk Under The Clock & Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Newfoundland’s, The Once, return after a sold out Christmas concert last year, this time to promote and showcase their new album Time Enough.

The trio consists of Geraldine Hollett (lead vocals), Phil Churchill (vocals, guitars, kick drum) Andrew Dale (vocals, mandolin, banjo, bouzouki).

On this their fourth studio album, The Once offer some of the most vulnerable and honest material of their career. They stay true to the root strength of their harmony driven sound, while extending the borders into fresh yet familiar territory.

They craft a sonically understated, but emotionally fulsome sound that accomplishes what they’ve always done so well : stun listeners with what Amelia Curran calls, “ Perfect vocal harmonies, thick enough to stand on”.

Peterborough folks love this Newfoundland band and always look forward to hearing a new album!

Harry Manx

Sunday January 20, 2019 – 4:00 PM
Presented by Folk Under The Clock

HARRY MANX has spent years fusing eastern musical traditions with the blues, switching effortlessly between conventional guitars, harmonica, and banjo and the decidedly different Mohan Veena, a 20-stringed instrument invented by Manx’ Indian mentor Vishwa Mohan Bhatt. Manx is often referred to as the “Mysticssippi” Blues Man, because of his expertise in melding both East and West music together and therefore, “creating musical short stories that wed the Blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas”.

Over the last 10 years, Harry Manx released 11 Albums and has garnered a room full of awards including, “seven Maple Blues Awards, six Juno nominations, the Canadian Folk Award in 2005 for Best Solo Artist and won CBC Radio’s “Great Canadian Blues Award” in 2007″. His most recent accomplishment was receiving yet another Juno Nomination for “Blues Album of the Year”, for his release, “Bread and Buddha” in 2010.

His latest album is ‘Faith Lift’ which sees Harry performing his well known songs with a string ensemble.
