An Evening with Danny Michel

Thursday May 24, 2018 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

With nominations for three JUNOs, the Polaris Prize, The CBC “Heart Of Gold” and a pile of albums under his belt, Danny Michel is unquestionably one of Canada’s finest songwriters. His thoughtful lyrics & earnest performances have earned him a devoted fan base. A musical chameleon, able to slip into many genres with ease. An adventurous & fearless artist. A master at striking the right balance between unpredictability and meeting expectations, leaving you wanting more as soon as it’s over.

Past critics have praised Danny’s lyrics for having “something to say” without coming off preachy. Topics range from the environment (“Feather, Fur & Fin”) to big questions (“If Gods’ on your side, then who’s on mine”). Others ask “Who’s Gonna Miss You when you’re gone?” a song which explores karma asking “Did you live it right?/did you live it wrong?”.

At the moment Danny is sitting in front of a blank canvas contemplating where his next album is going to take him. It could go anywhere from here. Knowing Danny, wherever it goes – it will be an adventure”

TONY MCMANUS

McManus has come to be recognized throughout the world as the leading guitarist in Celtic Music, while a master in many other styles. Self taught from childhood, initially through listening to the family record collection, the session scene in Glasgow and Edinburgh provided the springboard for gigs around Scotland. The release of Ceol More in 2002 was when Tony’s stature as a world class musician reached a new level and was the Critics Album of the Year in Acoustic Guitar Magazine. He is invited annually to the Chet Atkins Festival in Nashville and has appeared at prestigious guitar festivals around the world. He also plays with the quartet Men of Steel (Dan Crary, Beppe Gambetta and Don Ross).

He is in great demand as a studio musician, having contributed to over 60 albums. His 2009 release , The Maker’s Mark, saw him showcase 15 of the finest luthier built guitars available. The following year he was invited to contribute music to the soundtrack of Oscar winning director Neil Jordan’s film Ondine, starring Colin Farrell. He has released several instructional DVD’s and his latest album, Mysterious Boundaries, has been lauded as “a masterpiece” (John Renbourn).

Shawn Mullins & Max Gomez

Saturday June 23, 2018 – 8:00 PM

After a series of indie record releases, Shawn Mullins’s critical breakthrough came when 1998 Soul’s Core album shot him to fame on the strength of its Grammy-nominated No. 1 hit, “Lullaby” followed by AAA/Americana No. 1 “Beautiful Wreck” from 2006’s 9th Ward Pickin’ Parlor. His song, “Shimmer,” was used in promotion of the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney and was included on the Dawson’s Creek soundtrack. He co-wrote “All in My Head” which was featured in episode one of the hit TV sitcom “Scrubs.” Mullins also co-wrote the Zac Brown Band’s No. 1 Country tune “Toes.” In early 2002, he formed the super group The Thorns with Matthew Sweet and Peter Droge. Mullins most recent album, My Stupid Heart, was released in 2015, the theme of which, Mullins says, can be summed up most succinctly by the song title, “It All Comes Down To Love,” the guiding force behind just about every song on the album.

Mullins is currently embarking on a recording project in conjunction with the 20th Anniversary of the release of his album Soul’s Core, which came out July 17, 1998!

Though still only in his twenties, Max Gomez has always had the heart of an old soul. As a child, the first songs he learned to sing were originally recorded in the 50s by Johnny Cash. As a teenage guitarist he adopted Big Bill Broonzy as his blues master. And as a budding performer, he apprenticed in the rarefied musical climate of northern New Mexico, where troubadours like Michael Martin Murphey and Ray Wylie Hubbard helped foster a folk and Western sound both cosmic and cowboy. Gomez represents more than the sum of his influences—he’s got that ineffable and instantly recognizable x-factor called talent. Melodies that flow naturally. Trenchant lyrics that express wise-beyond-his-years observations on the ways of the heart. Laconic phrasing in a cafe mocha timbre, and guitar skills that can stand alone. In short: the whole package.

Judging by the company he keeps, Gomez is there positioned to emerge as a prominent voice of Americana’s next generation. Since the release of his debut album, Rule the World, in 2013, he’s shared billing on hundreds of stages with stalwarts of the genre like Shawn Mullins, James McMurtry, Buddy Miller, Jim Lauderdale, Patty Griffin, and John Hiatt.

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.
