Colin Linden

Wednesday November 20, 2019 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Of how many artists can it be said that they’re getting better, 33 years into their recording career? Colin Linden can certainly be considered a member of that select club based on From The Water, the 11th solo album in a storied career that has also featured his work on literally hundreds of other records. At last count, the total of albums on which he has played stood at over 300, while at least 70 albums bear the ‘Produced by Colin Linden’ credit.

Linden is a genuine renaissance man of roots music. He’s a singer and songwriter of great skill, an in-demand and prolific record producer ( Bruce Cockburn, Tom Wilson, Colin James), a sideman to the stars as guitarist for the likes of Bruce Cockburn, Emmylou Harris, and Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, and, for the past decade, a member of the highly successful trio, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings.

Colin’s songs have been covered by The Band, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Keb’ Mo’, and Colin James, and his well-stocked trophy case includes seven Juno, multiple Maple Blues Awards, and a Toronto Arts Award. He was nominated for a Grammy Award for the star-studded A Tribute To Howlin’ Wolf CD, and was involved in the ground-breaking O Brother Where Art Thou phenomenon. Linden has a well-deserved reputation as a slide guitar virtuoso of real originality, and his riveting slide work can be heard both on albums from such artists as Cassandra Wilson, The Rankin Family and Whitey Johnson and on his own sizeable solo catalogue.

Dan Mangan

Thursday November 21, 2019 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Special guest opener: Ocean Potion

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. It’s about feeling disconnected from a popular identity and becoming acclimated to a new one. It’s about raising kids in a turbulent world. It’s about unanswerable questions and kindness and friendship and fear. 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.

The World’s Greatest Tribute To The Traveling Wilburys!

Friday November 29, 2019 – 8:00 PM
Presented by The Traveling Milburys

George Harrison, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne and Bob Dylan, aka The Traveling Wilburys. There’s never been a group, let alone super group, in rock history quite like it. They created two mega albums and launched a slew of hits in the late 80s and early 90s, capped with a Grammy win in 1989. But one thing they didn’t do, much to the chagrin of their world-wide fan base, is tour. That is…until now…

The Traveling Milburys capture the sheer talent, excitement and magic of The Traveling Wilburys for all to see and experience. Live. On stage. In Peterborough. From the opening chords to the final encores of this energy-packed and hit-filled evening, you’ll know why this is, without a doubt, the world’s greatest tribute to The Traveling Wilburys.

“Close your eyes and it’s like you’re listening to a Wilburys albums. But then you open your eyes, and it’s like they’re really there – playing right in front of you…”
John Terrid, Toronto Star

“A roaring, eerily authentic tribute to The Traveling Wilburys, right down to the Rickenbacker, Gretsch and Gibson guitars.”
Chris Day, Ottawa Citizen

“I’ve got goosebumps on my goosebumps…”
Henry Hainsworth, Hamilton Spectator

Quartette – A Quartette Christmas!

Sunday December 1, 2019 – 7:30 PM
Presented by Shantero Productions

One of the great joys of Christmas is the music … one of the great joys of this Christmas is the opportunity to experience that music through the genius of Quartette! Whether it’s traditional favourites like “Silent Night” and “What Child Is This?” or Quartette originals such as “The Perfect Christmas Tree” and “Hope, Peace, Joy and Love”, Canadian singer/songwriters Cindy Church, Caitlin Hanford, Gwen Swick and Sylvia Tyson enchant with their singularly lush harmonies, unique arrangements and rich variety of musical influences.

The genesis of Quartette was happenstance … a “songwriter in the round” showcase of Canadian women songwriters hosted by Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre in 1993. What began as a concert of musical friends grew into an inspired collaboration, generating public and critical acclaim, and catching the ear of Peter Gzowski, who invited them to perform on his CBC Radio show Morningside. Later Gzowski would say of that performance: “The CBC switchboard lit up like a Christmas tree with people looking for a recording!” Seven months later they released their self-titled album. Since then, Quartette has released five more recordings – two of them Christmas collections, garnered multiple Juno nominations, won the Canadian Country Music Award for best vocal collaboration, performed with major symphonies across Canada, been repeat guests on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion, recorded a CMT-TV Christmas special and of course continued to tour the country, either in support of their most recent release or for their ever-popular Christmas performances.

Laughter, refreshing arrangements of old and new, impeccable harmonies, tales of love and inspiration, four lovely ladies celebrating 23 years of musical friendship … “A Quartette Christmas.”

The Once Christmas

Tuesday December 3, 2019 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

The Once are a modern indie folk trio from Newfoundland. The members are Geraldine Hollett, Phil Churchill and Andrew Dale whose beautiful harmonies and tasteful instruments are the trademark of this band.

They have collected three Canadian Folk Awards, numerous ECMA Awards and named artist of the year by the Newfoundland & Labrador Arts Council. Two JUNO nominations for best Roots/Traditional album, the most recent in acknowledgement of Departures (2014).

The Once’s newest collection of songs on We Win Some We Lose encompass an arresting sense of loss, emphasized musically by Geraldine’s bewitching delivery of beautiful haunting melodies.

“These three Newfoundlanders gracefully and evocatively offer gem like maritime music, foot stomping shanties, heart rendering ballads and accapella three part harmonies.” – Brad Wheeler, Globe & Mail

Expect a rousing, sing along, kitchen party Christmas concert filled with Newfoundland charm and wit.

Heather Rankin’s Picture Perfect Christmas

Thursday December 5, 2019 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

As a solo artist and member of the beloved East Coast group the Rankin Family, Heather Rankin has endeared herself to Canadian music fans. The celebrated performer will present a seasonal show including a mix of Christmas songs and original music.

“There are few surnames in Canadian culture that carry an immediate association with musical tradition like that of Rankin,” according to Beat Route magazine. “Heather Rankin has accumulated a half-century of unique insights and artistic inspiration.”

Rankin’s love of performing and creating music began in the small community of Mabou on Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton Island. Her parents, Kathleen and Alexander, encouraged their 12 children to pursue music, with five of the Rankin siblings, including Heather, going on to form the legendary Canadian musical group The Rankin Family.

Heather Rankin’s Picture Perfect Christmas will include a mix of traditional and original songs from Rankin’s 2017 seasonal album, Imagine, as well as favourites performed with her sisters, Raylene and Cookie, on the 1997 recording Do You Hear…Christmas. The show will also feature songs from Rankin’s 2016 Juno-nominated album, A Fine Line, along with Rankin Family classics.

With a rollicking East Coast charm and thoughtful wish for Christmas to come, Heather Rankin’s Picture Perfect Christmas is sure to fill you with the spirit of the season.

Alex Cuba

Saturday January 18, 2020 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Though raised in Artemisa, an hour outside of Havana, Alex Cuba’s artistry is as far-flung as the place he has settled and lived for over fifteen years: Smithers, BC, 14 hours north of Vancouver. His music at once incorporates his roots and is a unique amalgam of styles, having collaborated with artists ranging from Jason Mraz to Ron Sexsmith and Nelly Furtado; and bringing together melodies, popsoul hooks and rock chords in songs that may seem to bear little resemblance to traditional Cuban form.

A forward-thinking, indie-minded artist, Alex has amassed a steadily growing following among critics and fans. With over 20 awards and nominations to his name, including 4 Latin Grammys and two Junos Awards and three Grammy nominations.

Alex carries his Cuba within, incorporating subtle jazz influences, gained from his early years as a bass player in Cuba, and tasteful, sophisticated chords and lyrics expressing his poetry in an undeniably Cuban way. His growing body of work defines a unique musical place in the Latin diaspora.

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.

Blackie And The Rodeo Kings – KING OF THIS TOWN Tour

Thursday February 20, 2020 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre & kawarthaNOW.com

Blackie and The Rodeo Kings mark their 25th anniversary as a band with the release of King of This Town. Originally, Colin Linden, Stephen Fearing and Tom Wilson came together to record what was supposed to be a one-off tribute album to the great Canadian songwriter Willie P. Bennett. The result was High or Hurtin’: The Songs of Willie P. Bennett. The band had no plans to make a subsequent album but something unanticipated happened.
“When we play together and sing together as Blackie and the Rodeo Kings. Something magical happens. We haven’t asked ourselves what it is all these years and we’re not going to start now” as Stephen Fearing describes it.

Recognizing this special chemistry and the resulting joy of creating music together has brought Blackie and The Rodeo Kings back to stage and studio again and again. King of This Town is the band’s ninth release. “After each album, we are never certain we will get together to make another, but then something will happen and we are reminded of the joyride that is Blackie,” explains Tom Wilson.

Twenty-five years in, while they still spend most of each year working on their individual projects, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings has organically evolved into one of the finest roots-oriented bands in North America.

70% of mental health problems have their onset during childhood or adolescence. The goal of this campaign is to raise awareness for mental health inside and outside of our local community. Help us provide better care to those living with Mental Illness by donating or purchasing a ticket to the event.

This year might be a fundraiser, but the concert will still be a fun, honkey-tonk country music jam session.

Basia Bulat is a singer-songwriter who lives in Montreal, Canada. Over the course of five albums, she has brought together an intrinsic contemporary sound with a love of classic folk, country and R&B songwriting. Her first two albums, the folk-music-tinted Oh, My Darling (2007) and Heart of My Own (2010) were recorded in analogue with punk-rock producer Howard Bilerman; 2004’s Tall Tall Shadow, exploring friendship and grief, was made with Mark Lawson and Arcade Fire’s Tim Kingsbury; 2016’s Good Advice—a break-up album—and 2019’s Are You in Love? were produced in Kentucky and Joshua Tree (respectively) with My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James. In addition to her powerhouse voice, Bulat is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, recording and performing on electric guitar, piano, autoharp, ukulele, bass and charango.

Bulat is a three-time Polaris Music Prize finalist and has been nominated for three Juno Awards. In 2012, she performed for Leonard Cohen at Massey Hall’s Glenn Gould Prize Gala; she later appeared at the musician’s official memorial concert, playing “Coming Back to You” with Leonard’s son Adam. In 2014, she headlined her own Massey Hall gig, and in recent years she has also been selected to perform at landmark events such as New York’s annual Tibet House benefit concert, Montreux Jazz Festival, and the Newport Folk Festival. As a touring artist, she has shared stages with acts including Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, The National, Arcade Fire, Daniel Lanois, St Vincent, Sufjan Stevens and Destroyer; she made her NPR Tiny Desk Concert debut in 2011. In 2010, Bulat’s music was arranged for symphony orchestra by Owen Pallett and she has performed with classical ensembles including Ottawa’s National Arts Centre Orchestra, the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, and Halifax Symphony Orchestra.
