Boris Spremo, C.M. Photojournalist: Book Launch

Sunday December 8, 2019 – 1:00 PM (till 3:00 PM)

Boris Spremo, C.M.
1935 – 2017

Through the lens of a camera, capturing the day-to-day global events of such an eclectic world is nothing short of a monumental undertaking – which is why the name Boris Spremo, the tenacious and fearless former Toronto Star photojournalist, is especially important to remember.

For all the Incredible photographs and the iconic moments he captured with his lens – a list which includes The Rolling Stones, Princess Diana, Mohammed Ali, The Pope and countless members of royalty, political dignitaries, and the day to day person – Boris best captivated audiences with a unique photographic style that revealed the subject’s personality. When he captured a silhouette of retired John Diefenbaker relaxing by the sea in Barbados, you couldn’t help but feel the former prime minister’s pensive mood as he quietly wrote he memoires.

Boris is considered to have been one of our greatest Canadian news photographers, walking across deserts, through war zones, on royal grounds, at sidelines, or standing on a metal beam perched hundreds of metres above the ground. He used his camera to show the human side of people – many of them unable to hide their pain, joy, grief, emotions. Boris will always remain a part of Canada’s photojournalist tradition, leaving behind a legacy that will carry on for years to come.

The event will be held in the 2nd floor lobby.

Always entertaining and definitely unique, The Mudmen are a blast of Celtic energy whose members are known to be characters both on and off the stage. First discovered in 1993 as “The Campbell Brothers”, the band signed a deal with EMI Records and changed their name to “Mudmen” in 1998. Their music has been featured on Xbox and PlayStation games, NBC’s television show “Black Donnellys”, WWE Wrestling, Don Cherry’s  9, 19, 20, 21, 24, 27 hockey videos, The Mackenzie Brothers TWO-FOUR Special on CBC, HBO’S Shameless TV show, HNIC Coach’s Corner (Dale Hunter tribute), 6 music videos on Much Music, and they’ve reached top 20 on the Edge radio. In 2008 the Campbell Brothers were asked to perform on the new “Hockey Night in Canada” theme song produced by Canadian Icon Bob Rock, where Ron McLean quoted “Mudmen we love em”. This  lead to many opportunities  including a 3 month tour,  PBS special/DVD, and a performance at the Canadian Country Music awards with Johnny Reid.

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.

Sarah Harmer ‘Are You Gone’ Tour

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

Are You Gone? – the first new album in a decade from Sarah Harmer – is a deeply personal and momentous collection of songs motivated by the beauty of life, the urgency of climate crisis, and the question of loss. The first song “New Low” is more than a return to music for the internationally celebrated singer-songwriter and activist: it is a definition of form, a call-for-uprising in the face of global disaster, at the most critical moment for Harmer to raise her voice – one of the most distinctive in Canadian music. The vitality of “New Low,” its heedless pace, sharp guitars and exclamatory horns, bely the passage of time since Harmer’s last record, Oh Little Fire (2010). Nearly twenty years from the release of her debut, You Were Here (2000), Are You Gone brings a close to Harmer’s period of musical quietude with a rousing artistic statement, rich in detail and emotion, from the heart and for the spirit. The multi-award-winning platinum-selling musician’s long-anticipated sixth album will be released February 2020 on Arts & Crafts.

The Black Hen Roadshow Vol.4

Saturday June 13, 2020 – 7:30 PM
Presented by Shantero Productions

The Black Hen Roadshow Vol 4 is a travelling revue, featuring four dynamite Canadian roots performers—Oh Susanna, Stephen Fearing, Catherine MacLellan and Steve Dawson—collaborating to present an unforgettable evening of diverse, yet satisfyingly cohesive, entertainment. The opening set showcases each headliner individually, with Liam MacDonald on drums, Jeremy Holmes on upright bass and guitarist Steve Dawson playing back-up. For the second set, the entire entourage comes together on stage … more songs, guitars, harmonies, banter, instrumental breaks, laughter … musical magic at its best!

The Roadshow tours every second year—each time featuring different headliners—and is the brainchild of multiple Juno Award-winner Steve Dawson, himself not only a highly sought-after producer, but also an in-demand performer on slide guitar, pedal steel and more. The Black Hen Roadshow Vol 4 offers an exceptional lineup, with each artist critically acclaimed, each with an impressive discography, and each  the recipient of numerous awards. Oh Susanna is gutsy and confident, with a voice that can pierce a heart of stone. She writes of love and longing, joys and pain, simple feelings and strong passions. Stephen Fearing, co-founder of the Canadian roots-rock supergroup Blackie & The Rodeo Kings, is an alluring teller of tales and a master guitarist, expansive and full of mirth. Like her father Gene (writer of Snowbird, a trademark hit for Anne Murray), Catherine MacLellan has a pure and comfortable—yet passionate—performance aura, such that she too speaks and sings straight to the soul. In short, “Each of these powerhouse performers has their own unique artistic voice, and having them all together on stage at once is guaranteed to be a breath-taking phenomenon.” Having proved very popular in Western Canada, this is the first time the acclaimed Black Hen Roadshow heads to Ontario … it’s a show you won’t want to miss!
