GARNET ROGERS has established himself as “One of the major talents of our time”. Hailed by The Boston Globe as a, “charismatic performer and singer”. With his “smooth, dark baritone”, (Washington Post) his incredible range and thoughtful, dramatic phrasing, Garnet is widely considered to be one of the finest singers anywhere. An optimist at heart, Garnet sings extraordinary songs about people who are not obvious heroes and of the small victories of the everyday.

Garnet describes his recent book, Night Drive-Travels with My Brother, as “stories about how Stan Rogers and I grew up together, discovered music together, and learned to play in a band and travel together. How the songs got written and recorded. What life was like on the road before there was an independent music scene…the bar fights, bike gangs and a thousand gigs in every corner of North America, playing folk music for a living in the mid 70’s and early 80’s”.

KAREN SAVOCA & PETE HEITZMAN are a New York based duo who have performed for decades throughout North America and whose chemistry leaves audiences uplifted.

“Grit and sensitivity…percussion and groove…spanning, soul, blues, r&b, roots and world rhythms, like a high wire act working without a net” – Six String, Columbus Ohio.

“A voice with this much strength and easy confidence is a rare find and [Karen’s] songs are filled with good humour, sensuality and nature’s simple pleasures” –All Music Guide.

Acoustic Guitar magazine calls Pete Heitzman, “A true virtuoso of groove, with a sly touch that, combined with Savoca’s drumming and spectacular soulful vocals, gives the duo the impact of a four-piece band.”

Together they have recorded eight albums, produced two albums for iconic songwriter Greg Brown and they recorded a wonderful album with Greg Brown and Garnet Rogers, Live at The Black Sheep.

It has been a few years since Garnet, Karen & Pete played together at Market Hall. It’s going to be a special night and a great way to kick off the new Year!

The Once – Christmas Concert // Dec. 1, 2017 @ 8pm

~ An East Coast Christmas ~

The Once are a modern indie folk trio from Newfoundland. The members are Geraldine Hollett, Phil Churchill and Andrew Dale whose beautiful harmonies and tasteful instruments are the trademark of this band.

They have collected three Canadian Folk Awards, numerous ECMA Awards and named artist of the year by the Newfoundland & Labrador Arts Council. Two JUNO nominations for best Roots/Traditional album, the most recent in acknowledgement of Departures (2014).

The Once’s newest collection of songs on We Win Some We Lose encompass an arresting sense of loss, emphasized musically by Geraldine’s bewitching delivery of beautiful haunting melodies.

“These three Newfoundlanders gracefully and evocatively offer gem like maritime music, foot stomping shanties, heart rendering ballads and accapella three part harmonies.” – Brad Wheeler, Globe & Mail

Expect a rousing, sing along, kitchen party Christmas concert filled with Newfoundland charm and wit.

They last played Folk Under the Clock five years ago.

Catherine MacLellan // Nov. 12, 2017 @ 4pm

Catherine MacLellan brings her new show If It’s Alright With You – The Life and Music of My Father, Gene MacLellan to Peterborough after this summer’s theatre run in Charlottetown, P.E.I.

The show is a collection of songs and stories and a look at her father who wrote Canadian classics such as Snowbird (Anne Murray) and Put your Hand in The Hand (Ocean).

Catherine lives in rural P.E.I. She’s worked at her craft, releasing a series of remarkable, creative albums, culminating in the Juno Award-winning The Raven’s Sun in 2014. She has also won multiple East Coast Music Awards, Canadian Folk Awards and Music P.E.I. Awards.

Her new album If It’s Alright With You: The Songs of Gene MacLellan contains 13 of her father’s most famous compositions, songs that propelled him to fame nearly 50 years ago. He died in 1995 when Catherine was still in her mid teens.

Catherine explains, “Now I want to share my dad’s music and it’s also an opportunity for me to get to know him better. The more I get to know his songs, the closer I feel to him. He would be happy to know his songs continue on, being remembered and given a new spark”.

Catherine is accompanied by her band and will use multi-media imagery in the show.

The new album is available at True North Records.

Bruce Cockburn // Sep. 25, 2017 @ 8pm

Few recording artists are as creative and prolific as Bruce Cockburn. Since his self titled debut in 1970, the Canadian singer-songwriter has issued a steady stream of acclaimed albums every couple of years. He also published his memoirs in his book Rumours Of Glory.

Bone on Bone, Cockburn’s 33rd album, arrives now with 11 new songs. Produced by Colin Linden, Cockburn’s longtime collaborator, the album is built around the musicianship of Cockburn on guitars, John Dymond, bass, Gary Craig on drums and Cockburn’s nephew, John Aaron Cockburn on accordian and a number of guest musicians.

Amongst the wonderful new songs is the six minute epic, 3 Al Purdy’s that pays tribute to Purdy’s poetry. The first single off the album is, States I’m In, which opens the album and conjures up feelings of mystery and dread. Cockburn adds, “Maybe it’s also a play on words about me living in the States”.

He will be inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame in September, along with Neil Young, just before his concert in Peterborough.
