Jethro Tull's Martin Barre Band at Market Hall

Jethro Tull's Martin Barre Band at Market Hall

For the past five years Martin has toured the world with his own band to play the “classic” music from the Jethro Tull catalogue, and also many new tracks written by Martin from his albums AWAY WITH WORDS and ORDER OF PLAY, plus his latest album, BACK TO STEEL.

For 43 years Martin Barre was the renowned guitarist of Jethro Tull, and his role in the band cannot be overestimated. Bruce Eder wrote on allmusic.com, “His playing has provided much of the energy that allows the band to soar on record and in concert.” His unique sound and style contributed enormously to their success, which includes several chart topping albums, eleven gold and five platinum albums, a Grammy Award for CREST OF A KNAVE in 1988, and album sales exceeding 60 million units. Tull continues to be played worldwide, representing an important part of classic rock history.

Martin's guitar playing has earned him respect and recognition; he's been voted among the best ever in the USA and in the UK for his playing on “Aqualung.” Beyond numerous Jethro Tull albums, Martin has plied those award-winning chops with many other distinguished artists, including Paul McCartney, Phil Collins, Gary Moore, Joe Bonamassa and Chris Thompson. He has shared a stage with such legends as Jimi Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.

Redoubtable drummer George Lindsay, alongside super songwriter and bass player Alan Thomson form the core of Martin's accomplished band, with vocals performed by the talented and distinctive Dan Crisp. All members are committed to giving the Tull fans and a broader audience the chance to hear tracks not performed for many years with a few surprises along the way.

Regular Table Seats: $45 plus fees
VIP Table Seats: $75 plus fees*

*VIP tickets includes access to pre-show meet & greet with Martin Barre, complimentary refreshments and a poster signed by Martin Barre!

Peterborough Cares Long Weekend Event

PETERBOROUGH CARES LAUNCHES SIMULTANEOUS FUNDRAISING EVENTS. 

Seventh year for umbrella group, coordinating multi-charity fundraisers on the same weekend

"Wouldn't it be a great idea to have a number of well-known charitable organizations launch their fundraising events on the same weekend, but at separate, popular shopping locations in the city, under one organizing umbrella?" That was the thought that came to Peterborough business owner, and former separate school board trustee Camille Parent. So, after consulting with a number of area organizations and individuals, Parent is pleased to announce that this year, over the weekend of Friday May 19, through Sunday May 21, Peterborough Cares will once again this year coordinate simultaneous fundraising events across our great city. 

"We are proud once again to bring back what will continue to be one of the biggest humanitarian event ever held in our city on the same weekend," Mr. Parent said.

“A handful of local businesses, such as Morello's independent grocer (and others to be disclosed at a later date) will launch fundraising events on the same weekend, while using venues spread throughout the city. It will be a great opportunity for both volunteers and donors to come together to raise much needed funds for worthwhile causes." 

"We all really believe that this group effort will continue to be successful and fullfill the needs and dreams of many. We are going to raise a lot of money for a number of excellent charitable organizations," Mr. Parent said. "It's the seventh such coordinated event under the Peterborough Cares banner, and we hope to continue to grow bigger as the years go by." For more information about the Peterborough Cares initiative, or to arrange to interview any of the participants, please contact Camille Parent, 705-748-9961, ptbovacuum@homail.com

Help Brand Peterborough

Help Brand Peterborough

Partnering with local agency BrandHealth, the City of Peterborough is embarking on a Community Branding Project to establish a theme or an idea that captures the uniqueness of Peterborough. Branding is a way to look and sound consistent across the City’s efforts; whether we’re instilling pride within the community itself or promoting Peterborough as a great place to live, work and play. Successful brands are also aspirational and can communicate what a community hopes to be rather than just what it is. 

This is where you come in. As people who live and work within Peterborough, you know the City best! And we need to hear from you. We want to hear your thoughts about why Peterborough is unique, what you love about the city, and what you’re most proud of. 

Please join us at a Community Consultation on Thursday, March 9, 2017 at the Evinrude Centre Multi-Purpose Room. Two sessions are available to choose from: 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. or 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. 

We will provide an overview of the Branding Project and have small group discussions to hear the perspectives of local residents, organizations and businesses.

International Women's Day Ptbo Community Event

Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre and the Kawartha World Issues Centre are once again cohosting a dynamic and interactive evening for International Women’s Day. Taking place at Seeds of Change (in George Street United Church, 534 George St. N.) on Wednesday, March 8th, the event doors open at 5:30 pm for an evening of pot luck, music, speakers, solidarity and celebration. This is a free public event that is gender and child friendly, with potluck contributions welcome.

This year’s local International Women’s Day event will explore the ways in which women define power, women resist power and women grow their resilience in spaces of power. Peterborough is excited to welcome special guests, such as Peterborough’s own Raging Grannies, as well an incredible panel of women to speak on their experiences of power and resilience:

  • Chief Phyllis Williams: Curve Lake First Nation
  • Jean Augustine PC CM CBE: Grenadian/Canadian Educational Administrator, 

Social Justice Advocate, and Politician

  • Dawn Lavell-Harvard: Educator, Advocate for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, and Director of the First People’s House of Learning at Trent University
  • Vanita Lokanathan: Family Doctor and LGBTQ* Advocate
  • Yumna Leghari, Co-Editor, Arthur Newspaper

“The theme of Spaces of Power: Women’s Stories of Resilience was selected in response to the recent political climate in which the autonomous rights of women as full humans are once again being debated on a global stage,” explains Julie Cosgrove, Executive Director of the Kawartha World Issues Centre. “Women are resilient and negotiate spaces of power every day. We expect the evening to be fun, informative, and collectively inspiring.” This event has been recognized by the Women’s March (womensmarch.com) as an official ‘huddle’ event.

International Women’s Day Conference

On Wednesday, March 8, 2017, the Women’s Business Network of Peterborough (WBN) will host an International Women’s Day Conference at Ashburnham Reception Centre. Considered the first of its kind in the region, this event will be a unique opportunity to share and advance knowledge and empower participants to strengthen outcomes for women, their families, their communities and the economy.

“The International Women’s Day global theme is “Be Bold for Change,” and one of the objectives of the WBN in hosting this event is to advance its mission, which is to strengthen our community by supporting, empowering and inspiring women in business, beyond the boundaries of our regular monthly meetings,” says Louise Racine, WBN program director and International Women’s Day conference committee chair.

This year’s conference theme will be “Inspire. Empower. Act!” The focus is to inspire attendees by showcasing the experiences and stories of the speakers and facilitators; to bring together members of the community to learn more about the people and opportunities around them, to share their talents and perspectives; and to candidly explore ways to overcome some of the existing obstacles that continue to affect the lives of girls and women every day.

“The goal of this event is to bring women together for an entire day to be inspired, be empowered, and leave with some ideas on how they might take action to reach their personal and professional goals. The interactive workshop and panel topics have been selected to address a wide range of women’s issues, including, but not exclusively, business-related,” adds Racine.

Speaker lineup features Candy Palmater, CBC radio host, recovered lawyer and feminist comic; Sarah Vermunt, professional coach, career expert, former business professor, and author; and Linda Kash, veteran actress and improv performer.

 

Attendees will also get to participate in two 90-minute workshops from six available sessions in between speaker presentations to inspire action and create momentum for a more equitable and just society.

  • Volunteerism, & Conscious Consumerism
  • Lead”HER”ship – Discovering your “True North”
  • Moving Through Adversity
  • Song & Drum Circle
  • Financial Literacy
  • Imposter Syndrome

International Women's Day was originally conceived to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. At this event, the WBN hopes to celebrate what local women have achieved, and encourage tomorrow's female leaders to aim even higher and make greater change.
