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

Special guest opener: Mo Kenney

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

Featuring special guest opener: Annie Lou

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.

Stories & Songs of Stompin’ Tom

Friday October 26, 2018 – 7:30 PM
Presented by Duncan Fremlin

Whiskey Jack performed as Stompin’ Tom’s All Star back up band for many years.  Band leader and banjo player Duncan Fremlin first toured with Tom in 1990 and continued to perform with this great Canadian troubadour until his death in 2013.   Also on the Market Hall stage will be Juno Award nominee and multi-instrumentalist, Douglas John Cameron;  Stompin’ Tom’s fiddler (and five time Canadian National Bluegrass Fiddle Player) Randy Morrison;  Tom’s bass player Eric Jackson and Canadian drumming legend, Al Cross.

For over 40 years, Whiskey Jack has been performing their unique brand of Canadian country, folk and roots music throughout North America.   In the 1980’s, they were featured weekly on CBC TV’s Tommy Hunter Show.   During those years, each Friday night, Stompin’ Tom Connors would tune in and watch their segment, The Ol’ Back Porch.  It was then that Tom became an avid Whiskey Jack fan.  Along with 2 million of his fellow Canadians, Tom enjoyed the band’s humour, soaring vocals and amazing musicianship.

When Stompin’ Tom returned to the recording studio and the road after a 13 year hiatus, he called Whiskey Jack and invited them to join him in the studio to record his acclaimed album, “Dr. Stompin’ Tom… Eh?” followed by a cross Canada tour.

The Once

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

With special guest opener: Megan Bonnell

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!

Steven Page

Thursday May 2  2019 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

**TICKETS GO ON SALE SEPTEMBER 14 2018 @ 10:00 AM**

Hot on the heels of his induction in to the Canadian Music Hall of Fame alongside his ex-bandmates in Barenaked Ladies, singer-songwriter Steven Page has announced the forthcoming release of the most forceful musical statement of his solo music career.  Discipline: Heal Thyself, Pt. II, will be released on Friday, September 14, 2018 via Fresh Baked Goods / Warner Music Canada.

Ahead of the album’s release, Steven has today launched the vitriolic first single, “White Noise,” a naked look at the current political discourse south of the 49 th parallel.

“I grew up in a household where social justice was a fundamental value, and I always believed that it was a fundamental Canadian value as well as a central Jewish one,” says Page.  “I’ve watched how the term has been twisted and perverted by the Right over the last several years in an effort to diminish the voices of reason.

Although I grew up politically aware, in a left-leaning household (which, in Canada, was not regarded as anything sinister until the mid-90s and beyond), it wasn’t until I discovered the politically-charged music coming from the UK in the 1970s (the Clash, The Jam) and 1980s during the Miner’s Strike and the Red Wedge movement (Billy Bragg, Style Council, Communards, etc) that I became excited by the power of music and activism.  This song pays tribute to that music, and was written in the wake of last year’s events in Charlottesville.  The open displays of racism and antisemitism, and the chants of “Jews Will Not Replace Us” made me grab my guitar and tell them I’d be more than glad to replace them.”

Recorded at Fresh baked Woods Studios just outside of Toronto and Vancouver’s Doghouse of Thunder Studio with longtime live bands Odds and The Original Six, and frequent collaborator Craig Northey, Discipline is Page’s fifth solo album and the spiritual follow-up to 2016’s Heal Thyself Pt. I: Instinct.  Musically, the album tips its hat to many of Page’s influences including the aforementioned punk rock movement and David Byrne as well as a nod to the Bee Gees and the Zombies.

SPECIAL OFFER: A digital download of Steven Page’s new album, Discipline: Heal Thyself, Part 2, is included with every ticket for this show. You will receive an email with more details about this offer approximately 7 days after your purchase.
