Bif Naked – Songs And Stories 2020

Wednesday March 4, 2020 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Acoustic, duo performance

Special guest opener: Frank Moyo

BIF NAKED was born in secret, to a teenager living in India, the product of a Canadian girl and a British boy, she was rejected by both families, hidden away in a mental hospital from her diplomat-grandparents’ society and politico friends.   Adopted by American missionaries, and after years of legal hurdles, eventually gaining her and her adopted sister’s release from India they returned to North America.   She embarked on what she recalls with humor as a “charmed life”. A childhood of secret abuse, running away, targeted beatings by girl gangs, she was institutionalized for alcohol abuse as a teenager and sexually targeted, preyed upon by a long list of adult predators.  She escaped this early life by joining a punk rock band and left on tour, she married the drummer became pregnant and under extreme duress she aborted the unborn child and later the marriage and continued on a deadly downward spiral which culminated when she hit the floor of a Vancouver drug den overdosed. All of this before her 21st birthday.

Through it all, her creative and academic potential, multiple personalities, and her unstoppable humor were her weapons of self defense.   Bif showcased her life’s journey etched in tattoo ink across her body and with her unique ability to transform her true life stories into song lyrics, she found her voice as a solo artist, started her own record company Her Royal Majesty’s Records and at 23 years of age became a Platinum and Gold Album selling International Recording Artist.  Throughout her remarkable career, armed with her unique talent and instantly identifiable look, Bif would captivate the imagination of audiences and media alike, releasing ten albums and 24 videos.  She embarked on seemingly endless international tours, several feature films and multiple television roles, only to be struck down with breast cancer at the age of 37, the newly married Bif would discover the passion for advocacy, and a triumphant return to health and what she cherished most of all- her own resilience, strength and her unfaltering relationships with her adopted (dog) children Anastasia the bichonfrise, and Nick Naked her maltese poodle dog.  It’s already been a long, winding road… this is Bif Naked’s story so far….

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.

On December 16, 1825 Theodor Molt became the sole Canadian to meet Ludwig van Beethoven, but what could have happened between the two men? After Molt’s florid greeting in one of Beethoven’s notebooks, the following four pages were violently ripped out and destroyed. Betrayal? Competition? Scandal? Or just old fashioned ego and pride? With music, song, drama, history and informed speculation, The Missing Pages investigates.

SLOAN – NAVY BLUES TOUR

Wednesday April 22, 2020 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre & The Wolf 101.5 FM

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 SRV EXPERIENCE – Canada’s Heartfelt Tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan

Thursday April 23, 2020 – 8:00 PM
ZAPP! Productions presents

2 thumbs way up! Musically and visually the real deal. A Must see performance”…John Garbutt, Q107 Radio, Toronto“I keep hearing about the SRV Experience and the reviews are never “It was pretty good”. The people are absolutely blown away. There’s a point where obsession becomes possession, and this guy might be the actual proof.”…Jay Owen, Durham Radio Group

In 1983, the monumental impact of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s debut album launched a thousand musicians and fans into guitar shops and 500,000 people into record stores to buy their copy of Texas Flood . After recording 5 more studio albums and 6 live compilations, Stevie went on to win 6 Grammy awards after being nominated 12 times and selling out countless shows the world over.
Though he died more than two decades ago, the guitar legend and his influence can be seen and heard everywhere as it continues to grow.

Few of Stevie’s acolytes likely have the same dedication as Dave Ryan, who has spent the last decade getting the details just right as the front man of the Toronto-based band, The Stevie Ray Vaughan Experience. In addition to Dave’s attention to Stevie’s guitar work, vocals and guitar tone, there are many other visual elements of the show including a video show, look-alike hats from Stevie’s favourite, Texas Hatters, replica guitars/amps, and yes, the man even has the same blue peacock tattooed on centre of the his chest!

With thousand of hours of rehearsal under his belt (and thousands of dollars getting Stevie’s sound down, replicating his amps etc), Dave has assembled the perfect players to form Canada’s premier heartfelt tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble and soon to be the worlds!

The Chosen

Friday May 8, 2020 – 8:00 PM

Featuring: John Ellis & Friends

The WHY behind “The Chosen”
A dear friend and guitar student of mine for more than 23 years, one Friday night, said “Look, I am 77 years old and I am not going to live forever. I want to see you play live once before I’m gone, ok?!”

I said, “Wow, Man! No pressure! From that moment on, I knew that this had to happen. Later that night, I got to thinking that I taught for 31 years and it ended unceremoniously. When Long and McQuade bought Bud’s Music, they gave me a choice between teaching and sales. Due to a recurring repetitive stress injury in my left hand, I decided to do sales. I never had the chance to tell all of the students that I taught over all of these years, how much I appreciate them and enjoyed every minute of teaching them. With a lot of my students, it felt like they became a part of a very large family. Many of them are customers of the store and it’s always great to see them. I would like this show to be a gathering of this unique and wonderful family, in celebration of the music that we love.

Our Charities: Market Hall and Kawartha Food Share
We wanted to make this a charitable event but it had to be something that we felt strongly about. I feel that Peterborough is full of very talented musicians who never get to really show their skills for lack of venues to play. It’s tough for most musicians to have to pay upfront for these places. Market Hall is a fantastic place to play and we thought that if we could support them, it would be a win-win, musicians helping musicians! By encouraging Peterborough to donate to them, this will hopefully make it more affordable for others to book future shows. Kawartha Food Share is another of our charities because no one should ever go hungry!

Our sponsors: The Wolf, 101.5 fm. and Long and McQuade
Our favourite radio station is The Wolf, 101.5 fm. Besides playing the music I love, they genuinely care about our city! A company is only as good as their people, and they have a lot of amazing people working for them. Speaking of great companies and their people, Long and McQuade has been “instrumental” in making this show happen. After working for them for the last 5 years, I can honestly say that they really care about their customers, and all musicians.

Morgan Davis (with special guest opener Keith Whiteduck)

Friday May 22, 2020 – 8:00 PM
Brought to you by the Peterborough Folk Festival

For nearly four decades Morgan Davis has been on the road travelling across Canada, the United States and Europe. His performances draw from a rich tradition of country blues, as well as his own contemporary songs infused with wit and a large dose of humour.

Originally from Detroit, Davis grew up listening to a prolific mix of rhythm and blues. The music of Jimmy Reed, Ike and Tina Turner, Chuck Berry and Fats Domino was in the air. He later moved to California with his family, and then in 1968 left for Canada.

While living in Rochdale College, Toronto’s mecca for the subculture of the late 1960’s, he immersed himself in the study of Delta Blues, especially the music of Robert Johnson. Toronto’s music scene in the early 1970’s was the perfect place for Davis to cut his teeth as a journeyman, having the opportunity to see and play with many legendary performers. Bukka White, Johnny Shines, Sunnyland Slim, Snooky Pryor, Hubert Sumlin, and John Hammond were encouraging supporters.

Over the years he has had the privilege of opening for Willie Dixon, John Lee Hooker, Albert King, John Hammond, Albert Collins, and Eric Bibb. A highlight of his career was backing the phenomenal Dr.John. Morgan has shared the stage with Colin Linden, who also produced his second album, James Harmon, Gene Taylor, Sue Foley, Ray Bonneville, Carlos DelJunco and the late Dutch Mason.

Davis’ songwriting talent received international recognition when Colin James covered his searing ballad “Why’d You Lie”. Morgan’s first solo recording “Blues Medicine”, on Electro-Fi records, garnered critical acclaim as well as awards for songwriting and production. His multi- award winning release “Painkiller” won an impressive four awards at the 2004 Maple Blues Awards and not long after took home Canada’s top music prize…the Juno for Blues Album of the Year.

Morgan’s passion for the Blues has never wavered… and he fully expects to be on the road for the rest of his life.

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.

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!
