Saturday February 1,  2014 Concert featuring
Wilderness Of Manitoba

Wilderness-Of-Manitoba

This Toronto Based band has been receiving many accolades in the Canadian Folk Music scene based on the strength of their new album – Island of Echoes. This year, they were nominated for two Canadian Folk Music Awards. Pushing the Boundaries Award and Vocal Group of the Year.

The Wilderness of Manitoba currently performs with the talents of Will Whitwham, Amanda Balsys, Wes McClintock, and Sean Lancaric. In 2010, the group formed organically out of late-night sessions at Toronto’s Delaware House. Whilst employing an arsenal of instruments that includes banjo, cello, mandolin, and guitar, it’s The Wilderness of Manitoba’s rich, complex harmonies that serve as their sonic anchor. Part Fleet Foxes and part Great Lakes Swimmers with a tiny bit of Cloud Cult-inspired unpredictability tossed in for good measure.

Saturday March 8, 2014 Concert featuring Old Man Luedecke

Elbow River Band supporting
Concert start time 7.45pm

oml-300-5x7Old Man Luedecke has turned a few heads in the Roots music world with his latest album, Tender Is The Night. Recorded live in Nashville with producer Tim O’Brien, Luedecke surrounded himself with the top players in folk and bluegrass music. Driving a Nashville band with his unique voice, this is an artist honing his cunning lyrical flair – tenderly pushing the boundaries of his storytelling with his unique mix of folk, bluegrass and pop hooks.

“I have always liked and modeled myself on the ruffian qualities, I was attracted to the purity, misguided notions, and honesty,” says Luedecke. “I love Tim O’Brien’s playing. I listen to his records all the time. He’s top of the heap, in my mind, when it comes to traditional music, specifically American music

Saturday May 3, 2014 Concert featuring
Michael Kaeshammer

KaesmammerMichael Kaeshammer’s performances are an invitation to join the party. He doesn’t play at you. He plays with you. At his shows, you’re all in it together – not only part of the story, but virtually part of the band. When Michael steps on stage he’ll greet you warmly, as an honoured guest. He’ll play a song like ‘Rendezvous’. A comfortable start, to showcase his fiery piano chops and make you feel at home – The equivalent of taking your coat and hat and showing you around the place.

As you settle in and he’ll introduce you around – First to his longtime rhythm section, drummer Mark McLean then bassist Marc Rogers, who’ll rip it up with him on a tune dictated as much by his mood as by what direction he believes you and his other guests would like the party to head in. Getting there is more than half the fun.

As Michael says, “For me the performance is as much about the energy coming off the stage as the energy coming from the audience. It’s about being myself, writing from the heart and showing my love for life. That’s what I want to convey. After the show, people ask me, ‘do you really have that much fun?’ And I say ‘you don’t know the half of it. It’s even more exhilarating than it looks’.”
