“Hey, didya hear about…..?”
Everybody loves a good story. On Feb. 24, four of Canada’s best-known musical storytellers will join forces for a very special concert of story songs. Featured singers Garnet Rogers, James Gordon, Alison Lupton and Ian Bell will be joined by bassist David Woodhead and fiddler extraordinaire Shane Cook.
Garnet Rogers sings extraordinary songs about people who are not obvious heroes and of the small victories of the everyday. As memorable as his songs, his over-the-top humour and lightning-quick wit moves his audience from tears to laughter and back again. https://garnetrogers.
James Gordon’s name is synonymous with the stories of Canada – from “”Frozen in Frobisher Bay” to “Sweaters for Penguins.” James honed his craft working with Arthur Black on CBC Radio and with the group Tamarack. And he continues to paint musical portraits of the people of our land. He’s a funny guy as well! https://jamesgordon.ca/
Allison Lupton from Cambridge is a multiple CFMA nominee for Traditional Singer of the Year and Vocal Group of the Year and Folk Music Ontario’s Songs From the Heart grand prize winner for “One More Day.” https://allisonlupton.
Ian Bell is equally well-known as a singer, storyteller and humorist. Ian worked regularly with the late Stuart McLean on The Vinyl Cafe, and currently writes and performs with Dan Needles (author of the popular Wingfield Farm plays). https://
