Sultans of String - Christmas Caravan

22384395_1919843824697998_7740785976708082940_o.jpg

Celebrate the season with an adventurous musical trip around the world! 2017 JUNO Award nominees Sultans of String deliver an exuberant performance featuring originals, world-music inspired classics, and seasonal favourites to warm your heart on a cold winter’s night. From fiery fiddle tunes to a Caribbean sleigh ride, this surprising and delightful holiday fiesta heats up when Sultans of String bring their signature sound to well known gems such as Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, The Huron Carol (with gorgeous newly-translated Indigenous lyrics), Little Drummer Boy, a Feliz Navidad ska party, a Turkish twist on Greensleeves, A Charlie Brown Christmas, as well as a Gypsy-jazz inspired Django Christmas, and a Rumba-Flamenca fuelled Jingle Bells. Sultans of String are joined by shimmering guest vocalist Rebecca Campbell (Jane Siberry, Emmylou Harris, Alanis Morissette).

Since forming 10 years ago, Sultans of String have hit #1 across Canada on Top 10 national radio charts, and received multiple awards and accolades, including 2 JUNO Award nominations (Canada’s Grammy), 1st place in the ISC (15,000 entries), and 2 Canadian Folk Music Awards out of 8 nominations. Bandleader and violinist Chris McKhool was recently awarded a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for his work in creating community through music. 

When McKhool (who has performed with Jesse Cook and Pavlo), first heard founding guitarist Kevin Laliberté’s (Jesse Cook) rumba rhythm, their musical synergy created Sultans of String’s signature sound – the intimate and playful relationship between violin and guitar. From this rich foundation, the dynamic duo grew, featuring such amazing musical friends bass master Drew Birston (Chantal Kreviazuk), jaw-dropping Cuban percussionist Rosendo Chendy Leon (Parachute Club, Alex Cuba), and guitarist Eddie Paton (Robert Michaels).

Sultans of String have been crisscrossing North America for the last several years. Equally at home in a concert series, folk or jazz club, or festival setting, they have been featured at many taste-making forums such as JUNOFest, legendary jazz club Birdland in NYC, the renowned Celtic Connections Festival in the UK, and California’s hip music scene, including the San Jose Jazz Festival. They recently sold out Koerner Hall (Toronto’s Carnegie Hall), and performed with Toronto, Vancouver, and Edmonton Symphony Orchestras. Sultans of String have performed live on BBC TV, Irish National Radio, and the internationally syndicated shows WoodSongs, and on SiriusXM in Washington DC.

Art Show & Sale - 30th Birthday Celebration

23119949_10155850207749694_4145476447002164642_o.jpg

Join me on Thursday, November 30 from 6:00pm - 8:30pm for a special art show and sale at the STUDIO (302 Park St, North).

There will be original Intuitive Paintings by myself, along with mixed media works by artist Georgann Gosselin.

On Thursday, November 30th, it also happens to be my 30th birthday. To celebrate, I wanted to host an art show and sale with 30% of proceeds from the evening going to LAWS (also known as Lakefield Animal Welfare Society). This not-for-profit is an organization I care for greatly, the amount of work and help they provide for animals is amazing.
There will also be a donation bin for canned dog/cat food, dry food and anything else you would like to donate to LAWS.

I have also teamed up with artist David Hickey and comissioned him to create 30 metal bird sillhouettes. Taking 30 canvases measuring 6" x 6", Ill paint them in the style of my Intuitive Painting and incorporate David's work with my own.
David Hickey has been an artist I have admired for quite some time and am honoured to be working on this project.

Another collaboration I am excited to share with you is between myself and woodworking artist Chad Miller (Country Moon Woodcrafts). We are currently working on some unique wooden scultpures for you. More details and sneak peaks are on the way!

On this evening, I will also be launching my new jewelery line, Willow May. More details are to follow ;)

Its sure to be a fantastic evening and I cannot wait to share my world with you all! ♥

Joshua Hyslop House Show at Elcombe Crescent

21558736_349188562160763_909210493611358308_n.jpg

Join Joshua Hyslop for an intimate house concert at Elcombe Crescent in Peterborough! This is sure to be a fantastic show with a limited number of tickets available. 

Hosted by Elcombe Crescent, and booked by Side Door. 

Tickets available online through Side Door: https://side-door.myshopify.com/products/joshua-hyslop-in-peterborough-on

Details:
Tuesday, December 5th
Tickets: $20 + HST
Show: 8 PM
Doors: 7:30 PM

The best way to tell any story is to live it. Canadian singer and songwriter Joshua Hyslop has certainly done that. Since 2013, he’s actually played over 50 intimate “House Shows.” You read that right—he literally performs in a fan’s living room for a crowd of their friends and family. However, it’s more than that. After finishing the set, he doesn’t immediately pack up his gear and hit the next town.

Joshua would break bread with these families across the country and often end up staying awake late into the night talking about life, loss, love, and everything in between. These revealing conversations awakened something inside of him. He felt he was being given a unique opportunity to truly open up to these people and to share his own thoughts, fears, and doubts. It helped to serve as the catalyst for his second full-length album, In Deepest Blue [Nettwerk]. In an age when we’ve become more isolated than ever, he connected in the most old-fashioned way possible.

“We’re raised to be afraid of strangers,” he says. “More and more, I’ve found that many people are just inherently good and kind. I’ve had the pleasure of playing for some of the nicest and most hospitable families around the country. I’d show up, we’d have dinner, I’d perform the concert, and sometimes we’d end up talking almost all night. After breakfast the next day, I’d say goodbye and drive to the next families house. Some of the conversations I got to have had an impact on me, and it would bleed into the songs. Through these tours, I've realized that, ‘Yes, times can be hard, but everybody has felt that way. Everybody's got their stuff. I’m not alone in that.”

That catharsis drives In Deepest Blue. His empathy expanded, and he channeled those feelings into the writing process. However, he also wanted to continually challenge himself by breaking a personal tradition and writing in Nashville instead of his native Canada.

“In some ways, going to Nashville and writing with other people was similar to me doing the house shows,” he explains. “When you meet someone for the first time, it’s much easier to be open—because you don’t have to worry about the history of the relationship. You can simply be who you are. At the same time, the work ethic in Nashville was incredible. They don’t stop. We’d go from one song to the next without a break.”

Finished back home in Canada, In Deepest Blue reflects every facet of Joshua. Album opener “The Flood” starts with a soft mandolin strum and rustic acoustic guitar that seamlessly complements his breathy delivery. Written in one nine-and-a-half hour sitting, he utilizes the entrancing opener to tell a rather timeless tale.

“It’s loosely inspired by the biblical story of The Return of the Prodigal Son,” he explains. “There’s this idea of really messing up, feeling bad about the mistakes you've made, and hoping you can be forgiven. Underneath it all what unites everybody is that hope. More specifically, it’s hope in humanity, forgiveness, and love. It’s the blood we all share. I think it’s something everybody can identify with.”

“Let It Go,” penned with Michael Logen during a Nashville trip, pairs a soft violin and finger-picked acoustic with a soaring refrain.

“I often feel like I don’t have a well of security to draw from,” he sighs. “I can be quite neurotic which gets me worrying about everything from mortality to how I could be a better person. Sometimes, you just need to let all of that stress go, wash your hands of it, accept that it’s there, and hope that maybe it will lead to some deeper revelation.”

With its countrified pounce and spirited hook, “Living & Dying” examines the changing climate both figuratively and literally, while “Gone” is a soulful rumination on existence.

He says, “I love my job, but it can be pretty lonely. With so much time alone I start thinking about things. I don’t know if there’s an afterlife, or what that looks like, so it’s sort of an urge to live in the moment. You only get however many years you’re going to get, it would be a shame to waste them.”

Since first emerging with his 2012 full-length Where The Mountain Meets The Valley, he’s garnered praise from the likes of The Daily News, Vancouver Sun, !earshot, and more. He has also has carved out an impressive diehard fan base, willing to consistently invite him into their homes to perform. It’s because he always imparts an honest part of himself on the audience with every song and show.

“I want people to listen to In Deepest Blue from beginning to end,” he leaves off. “If they do engage with it, I think optimism will be the one thing they’ll feel. Whatever that looks like. I think they'll find their own personal meaning though. Beyond all the chaos, you find the Deepest Blue. It’s the calmness we all have. It’s the hope inside.”

School performances take place from Tuesday to Friday that week, at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. each day. Tickets for the school and evening performances are still available.

“Every year I’m amazed at the brilliance of the performers and the enthusiasm of the audience members,” continues Henderson. 

A silent auction will be held before the performance and during intermission at the Thursday evening show, with items donated by local businesses and organizations. The performances have been supported through funding from the City of Peterborough, the Peterborough Foundation, the Pilkington-Henniger Charitable Trust and the Lloyd Carr-Harris Foundation.

Book Launch for This Insubstantial Pageant

TTOK is excited to host the book launch of Kate Story's new novel "This Insubstantial Pageant" on Thursday, December 7th, 2017 at 7:30pm. Pay what you can at the door.

IT’S THE TEMPEST . . . IN SPACE!

Prosperina was robbed. Her chief executive officer—and betraying brother—stole her company Prosper Inc., her research, and almost her life, and marooned her and daughter Milana eight light years from Earth. A brilliant bio-engineer, Prosperina genetically alters indigenous plant forms to provide food, shelter, and even conductive and data-processing technologies. When her old ally Joe Gallo manages to hijack the ship of corporate enemy Al King, Prosperina confronts her brother and his allies (including Stephen the socialist atheist boatswain, drunken frat boy Troy, and Al’s handsome son, Fernando) in a fight for freedom. But the plants, Kaleeban and Auriel? They have other ideas.

Kate Story is a writer and performer. A Newfoundlander living in Ontario, her first novel Blasted (Killick Press) received the Sunburst Award's honourable mention for Canadian Literature of the Fantastic. She received the 2015 Ontario Arts Foundation’s K.M. Hunter Award for her work in theatre. Recent publications include short stories published by Tor Books, Stone Skin Press, and Exile.

The Jungle Book

20171029_091614.jpg

Arbor Theatre presents its 22nd annual holiday play “Jungle Book” at Showplace Performance Centre, 290 George St. N. on Thursday, December 7 at 7 p.m., (with a fundraising silent auction that night) and Friday, December 8, with doors opening at 6:15 p.m. both nights. Written and directed by Arbor Theatre's Artistic Director, Ray Henderson, with music by Beau Dixon and choreography by Madison Sheward, Rachel Froggot, and Kate Bemrose, this is a humorous adaptation of the classic tale by Rudyard Kipling that all ages can enjoy.  

 “This is a zany, high-energy show with some big dance numbers and the usual Arbor twists on this classic tale,” says Henderson. “There are some characters from the original book that weren’t in the movie, along with comedy that will appeal to all ages.”

This year’s production features a cast of 51 actors ranging in age from three to 70 years old. Asha Hall-Smith plays Mowgli, Aidan Wilson plays Baloo, and Dan Smith plays Shere Khan. School performances take place from Tuesday to Friday that week, at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. each day. Tickets for the school and evening performances are still available.

“Every year I’m amazed at the brilliance of the performers and the enthusiasm of the audience members,” continues Henderson. 

A silent auction will be held before the performance and during intermission at the Thursday evening show, with items donated by local businesses and organizations. The performances have been supported through funding from the City of Peterborough, the Peterborough Foundation, the Pilkington-Henniger Charitable Trust and the Lloyd Carr-Harris Foundation.  

Tickets are $15 per adult, students/seniors $12 and $8 for children under 12 years old, available at Showplace by calling 705-742-7469 or online at www.showplace.org. Quantities of four or more tickets are available at $10 each through the box office, not online.

Three Loonies on the Street

ThreeLoonies_2015_740x350.jpg

101.5 The Wolf, 100.5 Fresh Radio and CHEX-Peterborough urge you to support the Three Loonies on the Street annual fundraiser for Kawartha Food Share in conjunction with Corus Feeds Kids. On Friday December 15th from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m., we’ll broadcast live from the corner of King and George, Downtown and raise money to help feed local families in need.

Over the past 16 years, the Three Loonies have raised more than $1,300,000.  This is a milestone by any standard but unfortunately poverty and hunger is growing in our city and the need has never been more urgent.  Now is the time help your neighbours in need.

What does a food bank client “look like”?  To start, 35 percent of beneficiaries are children. Close to half of which are under the age of eighteen. A growing number of food bank clients are individuals who work multiple minimum wage jobs. These people are the ever growing socio-economic group of the working poor. Close to 65 percent of individuals accessing food banks are rental tenants. When it comes to housing, one quarter of Canadians spend 30 percent or more of their monthly income on rent and utilities, leaving them susceptible to poverty, homelessness and hunger. People rely on food banks for a multitude of reasons.

Kawartha Food Share currently assists more than 8,100 men women and children every month through our 36 member agencies. This includes their four meal programs, four City food banks, six housing projects, seven county food banks, and over 20 food cupboards across the City & County of Peterborough. Last year Kawartha Food Share’s warehouse distributed over 5 million dollars worth of food and emergency care needs. Remember, each person who has accessed a food bank has their own challenges that they must face. Receiving adequate food is a right.  It is not a privilege.  And one Loonie can make a big difference!

For every Loonie donated, Kawartha Food Share can purchase up to $6 worth of food. For every Loonie donated, Kawartha Food Share is able to distribute $6 worth of food. Cash donations allow Kawartha Food Share to get the food that is needed most through many different sources including bulk purchases, food drives and other economical food programs.

You can do this one of three ways:

1. Make a donation in person at the Kawartha Food Share office at 665 Neal Drive.

2. Send a cheque or money order to:

Kawartha Food Share
665 Neal Drive, Unit 1
Peterborough, ON K9J 6X7

3. Make a safe online donation at the Canada Helps webpage. CLICK HERE.

Charitable Registration Number: 88063 7624 RR0001

On behalf of Peter Blodgett and The Three Loonies – thank you for your support!

Jeremy Hotz Standup Show

IMG_0089.JPG

Jeremy Hotz brings standup show to Peterborough in January!

Quick on his feet, seemingly timid, awkwardly neurotic, and always self-depreciating, Canada’s Jeremy Hotz is no stranger to the comedy stage.

Not only is the stand-up comedian a regular at Montreal’s Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, on CBC’s Comics!, and Comedy Central Presents, Hotz has also been featured on The Late Show With David Letterman and The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.

Behind the scenes, he enjoyed a stint as a staff writer for The Jon Stewart Show.

As an actor, Hotz earned a Gemini Award for his role in the television series The Newsroom, and received three additional Gemini nominations for his stand-up comedy television specials.

Hotz, in all his miserable glory, will perform in Peterborough at the Showplace Performance Centre on Saturday , Jan. 20 2018.

Tickets are on sale now for $44 + fees and taxes and can be purchased online at showplace.org , by phone at 705-742-7469 or in person at the Theatres box office.

The Lonely: Celebrating The Music Of Roy Orbison

MARKET HALL - PETERBOROUGH - THE LONELY 	- websize.jpg

Thursday, February 8 at the Market Hall Performing Arts Centre in Peterborough.

Tickets are $47.50 (plus Facility Fee & Service Charges) available at the Box Office; Charge by phone 705-775-1503 or online at www.tickets.markethall.org;

or at Moondance Records, 705-742-9425

TICKETS ON SALE OCTOBER 27TH!

With hits of The Traveling Wilburys and Everly Brothers

Rock.It Boy Entertainment proudly presents THE LONELY - CELEBRATING THE MUSIC OF ROY ORBISON on Thursday, February 8 at the Market Hall Performing Arts Centre, 140 Charlotte Street, 3rd Floor, Peterborough.  Tickets are $47.50 (plus Facility Fee & Service Charges) at the Box Office.  Charge by phone 705-775-1503 or online atwww.tickets.markethall.org or at Moondance Records, 705-742-9425.

The BIG O was unmistakable with his trademark sunglasses, his distinctive, powerful voice, his complex compositions and the dark emotional ballads we all love. From 1960 to ’64 Roy Orbison landed 22 songs on the Billboard Top 40, including “Only The Lonely”, “Crying”, and “Oh, Pretty Woman”.  His impassioned voice, bridging the gap between baritone and tenor, coupled with his signature arrangements ensured the charting of the hits “Dream Baby”, “Ooby Dooby”, “Blue Angel”, “Blue Bayou”, “You Got It” and “In Dreams”.  As a part of THE TRAVELING WILBURYS Orbison brought us “End of the Line”, “Handle With Care” and “Last Night”.  A prolific writer, Orbison pitched “Claudette” to The Everly Brothers.  The track was a co-number one with the Everlys’ “All I Have to Do is Dream”.  Orbison and The Everly Brothers tore the house down on TV’s Shindig performing Roy’s “What I’d Say”.  Tragically, his life was cut short, leaving us only the music.

And, long may the music live!  THE LONELY delivers a sensitive and dynamic tribute to the one and only Roy Orbison.  Veteran Mike Demers leads this group of musical journeymen in their mutual and deep appreciation of the timeless music of the Caruso of Rock.  THE LONELY - CELEBRATING THE MUSIC OF ROY ORBISON approaches the music with a humble spirit and sincere desire to recreate the sounds and feel of the original recordings.  The band has been selling out shows right from their debut.  Tina Coldwell of TLC Entertainment says, “One of the best tributes I’ve seen and I’ve been in the biz for 22 years.”   Be there or be square!

My Son the Hurricane Video Link
https://www.facebook.com/mysonthehurricane/videos/10154403401948892/

My Son the Hurricane is a 14-piece brasshop funk beast with the mantra: anything worth doing is worth overdoing. Hailing from Niagara/Toronto, the band mixes New Orleans style grooves with funk, jazz and hiphop. Driving the show, charismatic frontman Jacob Bergsma “can playfully pluck every nerve in your body with his voice” (Earshot), while the well-oiled rhythm section including 2 trombones, sousaphone, 2 trumpets and 2 saxes creates aspectacle of sound. With this lineup, My Son the Hurricane “stood out like a sore, yet extremely talented thumb at every show they’ve played” (Pulse Niagara), and became revered for their live show. 

Riding the success of their sophomore release “Cashing a Deadman’s Cheque” (feat. U.S.S. frontman Ash Buchholtz and three-time Juno/Polaris nominee D-Sisive), the Hurricane was featured on the CBC and Much More Music. Their blending of styles and penchant for inciting dance parties and penning introspective ballads (Pushin’ Up Daisies) has garnered them high praise on the Canadian festival circuit with breakout performances at Hillside, Evolve, Beaches Jazz, and more.  

Drummer Danno O’Shea acts as ringleader for the mammoth project, spurring the group to weave through different styles on the new album “Is This What You Want?!”, recorded at Phase One Studios with engineer Jeff Pelletier (Big Sugar, Ludacris). Leading up to the album’s June 2016 release, it was a featured stream on Exclaim!, and has since found its way to Canadian airwaves including CBC Radio One, Edge 102.1, and 97.7 Hitz FM, which spotlighted the Hurricane as a “Band on the Verge”. This is the first release to feature Sylvie Kindree on vocals, who adds sassy hooks and acts as a foil to the ever outgoing Bergsma. The album’s songs range from dance floor bangers to slimy and Primus inspired “Grapes”, which closes out the album with a collective thud. “Is This What You Want?!” brings a new flavour to the Hurricane repertoire, building on what makes their sound “a fusion that one simply needs to experience live” (Buying Shots for Bands).

88f0e84f-a721-4962-d6ee-b2317499b0ff.jpg

Find out what it takes to make a great space for audio recording. 

First, we'll discuss your equipment needs in setting up a home studio: microphones, cables, audio interfaces, and audio editing software for your computer. You'll find out what everything is and how it all works. Plus, we'll have a number of different types of each piece of equipment available for you to try out, so you can see what works best for you.

Then, we'll go over the basics of how you can tell if your recording room needs work. Plus a couple of simple strategies for fixing that.

Join us for Part 2 of the workshop in the afternoon, which will be a hands-on workshop building your own sound baffles.

Cost for Setting Up a Home Studio I: $20
Cost for full workshop: $120 (includes the cost of materials, and you'll go home with one sound baffle)

23000409_420726815008686_2333039084504662132_o.jpg

PLEASE NOTE: Date and venue change from original posting.

The Missing Euchre Player

Written by Esther Vincent

Directed by Em Glasspool

Featuring: Di Latchford, Amy Cummings, Katie O’Rourke, Nathan Govier and others

$5 to $10 or Pay What You Can
Market Hall, 

Enjoy a staged reading of a favourite old script that’s being redeveloped.

The Missing Euchre Player was first presented at the Union Theatre in 1993. After 25 years, the script is being revisited and reworked with the aim to put on a full production in late 2018 or early 2019.

Probability, uncertainty, mind over matter, suicide and the vagaries of Canada Post are covered in this one act black comedy that has five endings. Each performance presents one ending based on the live drawing of cards. You won’t know which ending you see until you get there.

Join us for the show and stick around after to meet the performers, director and writer and discuss the play.

[Content Warning: This play contains references to suicide.]
