Against The Wind – Canada’s Bob Seger Experience

Presented by Rock-N Entertainment

Friday March 31, 2017 – 8:00 PM

The launch of ATW in 2015 marks 35 years since Bob Seger’s, award-winning album and hit single, “Against The Wind ” was destined to become etched into the public’s minds and hearts.

ATW sets the stage for memories and new experiences. This band is dedicated to honouring Bob Seger, paying homage to the undeniable motto – “Rock and Roll Never Forgets”. ATW’s song-list includes selections from Seger albums that are obvious mega hits throughout the 60, 70’s and beyond.

“You just can’t shake a memory that feels so good, so right” – that’s why booking ATW makes total sense in a time when, “the feel good”, factor is what the audiences are yearning to feel and re-experience, a guaranteed recipe for success.

Concert, corporate and private events are prime venues for ATW and what they bring to audiences.

Bring this power-house to today, to your audience now!

“It’s Your World”, “In Your Time”, it’s that simple and extraordinary – It’s ATW.

Jethro Tull’s Martin Barre Band

Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Tuesday April 11, 2017 – 8:00 PM

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.

Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer


Special guest opener: Ryan McNally

Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Friday April 14, 2017 – 8:00 PM

With a name like the Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer, you might be forgiven for thinking that the Vancouver-­-based duo is some sort of concept group, based on a hypothetical love story between Captain Ahab and Lizzie Borden.’ – Chris Oke, Yukon News

In reality, Shawn ‘The Harpoonist’ Hall and Matthew ‘The Axe Murderer’ Rogers evoke much more than just grisly nautical imagery. Armed with an arsenal of harmonicas, a mess of foot percussion, and a road-worn Telecaster, the duo kick out raw and primal blues in the tradition of a ‘decades-deep blues style’ (Scott Brown, What’s up Yukon), while infusing the genre with a jolt of renewed energy.

The Best Of British Pop

Presented by Peterborough Pop Ensemble
Saturday April 22, 2017 – 7:30 PM

Emerging in the 1950s, British popular music was influenced greatly by North American musical styles but, by the 60’s, the unique sound of British artists headed across “the pond” resulting in a renaissance of musical freedom and creativity.  The national appeal of UK artists such as The Hollies, Herman’s Hermits, Elton John, Rod Stewart, The Rolling Stones and the Beatles soon gave way to a phenomenal international success which continues to this day.  Come celebrate the revolution with the members of the Peterborough Pop Ensemble on Saturday, April 22, 2017 as they present “The Best of British Pop”.  Showtime is 7:30 p.m. at the historic Market Hall Performing Arts Centre in Peterborough, ON.

Bill & Joel Plaskett

Presented by Peterborough Folk Festival
Sunday May 7, 2017 – 8:00 PM

When Bill Plaskett and his son Joel Plaskett get together to write songs, the result, as Bill describes it, is “a touch of the traditional mixed in with the new, and a lot of the unexpected, arrived at through experimentation.” The result is Solidarity, an album that welds Bill’s traditional folk leanings with Joel’s long and acclaimed history in the Canadian rock landscape.

Mairi Rankin & Ailie Robertson

Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Friday May 26, 2017 – 8:00 PM

One of the hugely influential Rankin Family – legends on the Canadian music scene – she plays fiddle, sings and also step-dances up a storm. Born in Mabou, Nova Scotia, Mairi has been influenced by some of the best Cape Breton traditional musicians and instructors on the island. She has developed her own unique style by being immersed in such a rich musical culture. She has toured nationally and internationally as a solo artist, a sideman and is a member of the Cape Breton Celtic super group Beolach. She has performed with the Rankin Sisters, Unusual Suspects and Bruce Guthro to name but a few. Mairi has recorded one solo album, two CDs with Beolach and has been featured on numerous compilations and recordings.

Ailie Robertson from Edinburgh is widely regarded as one of Scotland’s leading young traditional musicians. She is a musician in the broadest sense: composer, arranger, teacher, improviser and harp virtuoso. Her accomplishment on the clarsach is such that leading Irish flautist Niall Keegan said: “Ailie’s synthesis of Irish, Scottish and contemporary harping technique into an individual style represents the realisation of otherwise unimagined possibilities for the Celtic harp.” Ailie grew up in Edinburgh, Scotland, and was immersed in the harp world from an early age. She began playing the clarsach when she was eleven years old and through her piano and clarsach lessons she developed a love for both classical and traditional music.  In 2009 she was nominated for ‘Up and Coming Artist of the Year’ in the BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards. Ailie is in great demand as a teacher around the world, and has published six books of harp music
