Her song-a-week video series, Sunday Mornings with Reina del Cid, has amassed 30 million views on YouTube and collected a diverse following made up of everyone from jamheads to college students to white-haired intelligentsia. In 2011 she began collaborating with Toni Lindgren, who is the lead guitarist on all three of Del Cid’s albums, as well as a frequent and much beloved guest on the Sunday Morning videos. Reina del Cid’s new full length album, Morse Code, will be the first album she has released since building her Sunday Mornings fanbase online, and she wanted to capture the spirit of the roving Sunday Morning videos. The 12 songs on this album have an unfiltered feeling to them, and they lean heavily toward the acoustic end of the aural spectrum with minimal processing, just like the live performance videos Del Cid posts to her channel every week. Featured are Del Cid’s trademark clever rhymes and story-telling lyrics coupled with lead guitarist Toni Lindgren’s unique blend of adroit flat-picking and bluesy, soulful riffs that fans have come to know throughout the band’s previous releases. Morse Code was released worldwide on October 4, 2019 digitally and on CD with vinyl slated for release in early 2020.Find out more »

An organic, back porch duo that owes a debt to the leftists of the lefties, here's where you turn if you lean more toward Holy Modal Rounders than Kingston Trio. As organic and holistic as folk gets, this is the wild sound of freedom and the freedom to fly" Midwest Record, USA "Gordie Tentrees is a cross between Corb Lund and Stompin’ Tom Connors. Much like Corb Lund, Gordie has a writing style all his own, and much like Stompin Tom, I can imagine him playing anywhere – honky tonks, beer joints, large theaters or stadiums – and commanding the stage and crowd with his honesty, humor, and storytelling. Talent is talent, and it’s clear when it comes to songwriting, Gordie Tentrees has oodles to spare" ROOTS MUSIC CANADAFind out more »
Thursday, November 28, 2019 | 8:30PM David Celia Presents Pink Floyd’s The Wall: Solo Acoustic Advance $25 / Door $30 * David Celia is long-established as one of Toronto’s most accomplished guitar players and respected singer/songwriters. He grew up on classic rock and honed his guitar skills as a youngster playing along to Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd records. He has incorporated many covers into his repertoire over the years, culminating in a recent concert where he performed The Wall in its entirety for the first time. The response from the audience was ecstatic. “By chance I had a gig offered to me at a time when The Wall was running through my head. I realized I knew the album so well by heart that instead of getting a band I decided to play it solo. The show involves some live looping and the famous Gilmour guitar delay (plus a smidge of piano). I enjoy improvising parts of it but I always stay true to the record. The audience may not be able to help themselves but sing along at times, and that is totally welcome.” David’s playful guitar playing and soulful vocals will win over both casual fans and even the most devoted Floyd-heads. David has performed his original work three times at the Glastonbury Festival, Mariposa and many other festivals in Germany, Holland and France. He spends half his year touring Europe and is currently promoting the album Daydreamers, written and recorded with German singer/songwriter Marla. On a cold Thursday night in November, come warm up with an acoustic performance by David Celia as he brings The Wall – in its entirety – to Hugh’s Room Live. * Advertised pricing excludes taxes and ticketing fees.Find out more »
