Sarah Harmer ‘Are You Gone’ Tour (CANCELLED)

Tuesday March 24, 2020 – 8:30 PM
Wednesday March 25, 2020 – 8:30 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre


A note from Sarah Harmer:

Hello friends. 

Hope you are doing ok out there. 

All summer my team and I have been readjusting the sails to consider how touring in Canada and the US might look as this COVID 19 Pandemic dramatically alters our lives and plans.

At this point it seems that refunding all tickets and re-booking shows well into next year is the best course of action. My band and I still want to play as many of the same cities and towns as possible, and will do our best to re-mount all the tours when it’s safe to do so. 

Until then you can get a refund for your ticket purchases through the original point of sale. I want to say thank you again for your support and enthusiasm with this new record. It has felt good this year to finally have a new batch of songs to share with you, and when the time is right we will meet out in the world again.

In the meantime I’m trying to appreciate every sunrise and figure out how I can help in my little part of the world, as a citizen and a musician. I am spending lots of time outside, loading up on the restorative powers of nature, and I challenge you to do the same; go hug a tree, skip a rock, weed a garden bed. As we face all the discouragements and challenges of these days please know that you are a force, and people and the planet need your love and care. 

And finally, thanks for being part of my emotional support team. Just knowing you’ve connected with my music and supported my (attempts at) shows means a whole lot

Please be safe and take care, and I’ll send more updates as the days unfold.

Attention Sloan ticket holders. Unfortunately the concert has been rescheduled due to the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic. Please hold on to your tickets, they will be honoured for the new date. We appreciate your patience as we work through this matter.

In 1991 bassist and vocalist Chris Murphy and drummer Andrew Scott met while studying at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and with the addition of Patrick Pentland on guitar and vocals and Jay Ferguson on guitar, formed Sloan. A year later the band made their recording debut on the Halifax, Canada CD compilation “Hear & Now” before releasing their debut EP “Peppermint” (1991) on their own label Murderecords. In 1992 Sloan signed with Geffen Records and released their full-length debut “Smeared”.

The band’s 1994 follow-up “Twice Removed”, despite the lack of promotion by Geffen Records due to artistic disputes sold well in their home nation of Canada but not so well in America. The record was undisputedly simpler and more melodic than its predecessor despite the label’s best efforts for Sloan make it noisier and for them to fit into the grunge scene. The album was named “The Best Canadian Album of All Time” by one poll and revered by many other and the band supported the album with a relentless tour of Canada thereafter.

During a small hiatus in 1995 where members pursued their own musical interests, Sloan returned in 1995 and released the single “Same Old Flame”. The single made way for another hugely popular album in Canada “One Chord to Another” in 1996. It was recorded on a very tight budget however eventually got a well-received U.S. release when the band signed with EMI subsidiary Enclave in early 1997.

Sloan subsequently released “Navy Blues” in 1998, the double live album “4 Nights at the Palais Royale” in 1999, “Between the Bridges” in 1999, “Pretty Together” in 2011 and “Action Pact” in 2003. The latter of which was recorded in Los Angeles with Tom Rothrock in the production seat in the hope of appealing to a U.S. audience. Its successor, the 30-track long “Never Hear the End of It” in 2006 saw all members of the band contributing a section of songs and became Sloan’s highest charting album in the U.S.

In 2008 Yep Roc Records released Sloan’s ninth studio album “Parallel Play”, followed by the EP “Hit & Run” in 2009 and the full-length studio release “Double Cross” in 2011. “Commonwealth”, released in 2014 is an extensive double album with each of the four sides written by one of the band members to allow their personalities to blossom.

The Chosen (CANCELLED)

A message from John Ellis:

Dear Friends,

Well here we are at the end of October and still no sign of when it will be safe to have a large crowd together for something like a concert. Thanks to all of you, The Chosen show is that very thing, a large crowd. I can’t get over how fast it sold out. I am both shocked and humbled but mostly grateful to all of you who bought tickets. I can assume you are also the same people I see on a regular basis at Long & McQuade. You all know who you are. Can’t tell you what it’s meant to me over the years to have known you all but I can tell you it’s made going to work every day a whole lot more fun.

By now I think we all know the new date of November 7th is not going to happen. Market Hall’s general manager, Chad Hogan, and The Chosen’s musical director, Ryan Browne, feel it would be in your best interest to cancel this show and start over again when the world gets back to normal. The Chosen Show will go on. It will happen. We just have to wait until it’s safe.

If you bought tickets from Market Hall you will be refunded
on October 28th and those who bought from Long & McQuade can get your refund there. I would like to say my original intent for doing this show was a fundraiser in support of the Market Hall, so anyone who is able and willing, please consider donating your ticket value to the hall as it would be greatly appreciated and needed. You will also get a tax receipt for your donation.

I’ve known the hall’s general manager Chad Hogan since he was a little kid coming into Bud’s Music Centre and I’ve had the pleasure of watching him grow to be this funny, intelligent, articulate and honest man that I feel honoured to call my friend. Chad has put his heart and soul into the hall and so we want to help to keep Market Hall going. Market Hall needs help to ensure live music lives on in Peterborough.

Corb Lund (NEW DATE – DECEMBER 1, 2021)

Sunday May 24, 2020 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre


Due to the circumstances surrounding COVID-19 and ban on public gatherings over 50 people – Corb Lund has postponed his shows in 2020. The safety and health of our patrons are of the utmost importance – the new date is DECEMBER 1, 2021. An email has been sent to all current ticket holders regarding refunds. For additional information, please contact

Hailing from the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada, and with a family lineage of ranchers and rodeo people, Lund is about as authentic as they come. Embracing his Western heritage through his music, Lund has been known to touch on a range of cowboy themes past and present – from rough-and-tumble tales of lawless frontier saloons, to the somber realities of running a modern family ranch.

Corb Lund has received multiple CCMA, Juno, and international award nominations and wins.  His seventh album, Cabin Fever, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Canadian Charts; three of his records have been certified Gold, and his latest studio album, Things That Can’t Be Undone, produced by Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell), cemented his status as one of the best contemporary country singer/songwriters working today. NPR said “The album is a high mark of a long career” while Rolling Stone named him one of the “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know” stating, “Things That Can’t Be Undone finds Lund flirting in fresh sonic waters, while still keeping his sardonic mix of eerie lyrics and deceptively joyful vamps well intact.” PopMatters exclaimed, “Melodically engaging and narratively compelling, Things That Can’t Be Undone furthers the case for Corb Lund as one of the best contemporary country songwriters.”

Corb Lund released an EP of cover songs, Cover Your Tracks on September 13th via New West Records in the US and Warner Music in Canada. The EP presents some of the songs by others that Lund says have inspired him throughout his career. His forthcoming full-length album of original songs will be released in early 2020.
