The Ennis Sisters (NF) The Juno Award winning The Ennis Sisters deliver one of the finest family Christmas shows in the country. Maureen, Karen and Teresa combine original songs, holiday classics, humorous recitations and Irish step-dancing to create an exciting evening that will ignite your true holiday spirit. Their tightly-woven harmonies produce a sound that only siblings can achieve. The multi-award-winners move audiences with their hilarious sisterly banter and their poignant seasonal sentiments. This show has become a Christmas tradition you won’t want to miss! Belle Plaine (SK) Plaine is a singer, a songwriter, and an inventive musician raised on the Canadian prairies. The ingenuity, lonesome yearning and collaborative work ethic of country life have infiltrated her songwriting, sound and methods. Belle’s reverence for artists who defy categorization has led her to create a brand of roots music that combines vintage blues and swing of the 1940s with classic Grand Ole Opry country. “If Patsy Cline and Blossom Dearie had a love child she would sing like Belle Plaine.” Kelly Jo Burke, CBC

Artesian, 2627 13th Avenue
Regina, S4T 1N2 CA

The Artesian is pleased to welcome Old Man Luedecke back to the stage to celebrate the release of his brand new album "Easy Money"! Joining him for this show will be rising Canadian folk music star Charlotte Cornfield Show Details: Old Man Luedecke with guest Charlotte Cornfield Date: Saturday, November 30th, 2019 Doors: 7:00 PM Show: 8:00 PM Tickets: $20.00 in advance online or at Paper Umbrella - 2724 13th Avenue, $26.00 at the door The Artesian is wheelchair accessible, all-ages, and a proud supporter of positive spaces initiatives with a zero-tolerance policy towards hate, harassment, and/or discrimination. We reserve the right to remove any patron creating an unsafe environment. The accessible entrance is available via a lift, Please ask staff for help if necessary. About Old Man Luedecke and his new album "Easy Money": Old Man Luedecke is the recording and performing name of Christopher Luedecke, 2-time JUNO and multi East Coast Music award-winner, and Polaris Music Prize nominee from Chester, Nova Scotia. Since 2004 he has travelled the world playing festivals, theatres and clubs. He delights his audiences with his heartfelt command of the stage. Plus, his inspired banjo playing and wry storytelling cut to the heart of normal/extraordinary experience itself. Born and raised in Toronto, Luedecke followed Thoreauvian and romantic notions to Canada's Yukon where he fell in love and started composing folk songs with a banjo. Since 2005, he has lived rurally on the south shore of Nova Scotia in Canada's music-rich Maritime provinces. He has had major appearances at Canadian, Australian and UK festivals and has performed with the likes of Feist, Bahamas, Tim O'Brien, and Rose Cousins. He has built a name and a following that has been uncompromisingly unique and is now firmly established in the top echelon of Canadian folk artists. As the Vancouver Folk Festival says, "He is a musical singularity to be savoured and shared." Easy Money picks up where Old Man Luedecke's award-winning, and most successful release to date, Domestic Eccentric (2015), leaves off; four years farther down the road, dreaming about his ship coming in, still a parent but now grappling with the newness of middle age, dad jokes, love for an abiding partner, the death of a parent, along with some calypso-feeling local Nova Scotia history thrown in for good measure. Composition and recording were both begun at the Banff Centre's songwriter-in-residence program. It was there that Luedecke met the album's producer Howard Bilerman of Montreal's famed Hotel2Tango studio where the album was eventually recorded. The ten new original compositions and two covers run a modern storytelling line from the fifties folk and calypso boom into the everyday of tangible middle life. Guest appearances by long-time collaborator and Grammy award-winning Tim O'Brien, Afie Jurvanen of Bahamas, and Fats Kaplin (Jack White, John Prine) add piquant accents to the impeccable playing of Luedecke and a crack Montreal studio band of Mike O'Brien, Joshua Toal, and Jamie Thompson. Easy Money begins with three upbeat incantations of what is surely the beginnings of a mid-life crisis (“Dad Jokes”? “Wakeup Call”, come on!) then moves to 2 songs musing about death; both inspired in part and in different ways, by the passing of Luedecke's father, the passing of Leonard Cohen, and current politics and the death of truth. There are two island-themed numbers that imagine a laid-back life in the local un-tropical paradise of the Canadian Maritimes. Then comes a country song with killer fiddling and harmony singing by Tim O'Brien, a dance number of frightful worry, and then a cover of Nana Mouskouri's French-language cover of Bob Dylan's topical apocalyptic plaint, "Hard Rain's Gonna Fall". This is followed by a traditional sea shanty about a mermaid and a shipwreck. The album closer, "'I Skipped a Stone", is the most beautiful song about hoping your wife will pick up the phone. The song is made all the sweeter by the special appearance of Bahamas' playing and singing, to close out Luedecke's sixth full-length studio album. About Charlotte Cornfield: “You free yourself when you take away the script,” says Toronto songwriter Charlotte Cornfield. “That’s where this record came from, dismantling patterns and embracing the process.” Cornfield’s third full length, The Shape of Your Name, came out on April 5, 2019 via Outside Music imprint Next Door Records. The critically acclaimed album, which was long listed for the 2019 Polaris Prize, has a more honed studio sound than her scrappier 2016 release Future Snowbird, and for good reason: it was recorded in 5 different sessions over the course of 3 years. The songs are her strongest and most striking to date - contemplative and contemporary, funny and heart-wrenching - and they’ve got that stuck-in-your-head-for-days quality that Cornfield is known for. The Shape of Your Name features a star-studded cast of collaborators including (but not limited to) Grammy-winning engineer Shawn Everett, Broken Social Scene members Brendan Canning, Kevin Drew and Charles Spearin, and Montreal songwriter Leif Vollebekk.

Mairi Rankin & Eric Wright in Vancouver

Vancouver, British Columbia V6K 2L2 Canada

Mairi Rankin is a legend on the Canadian music scene – she plays fiddle, sings and also step-dances up a storm. Born in Mabou, Nova Scotia, Mairi has been influenced by some of the best Cape Breton traditional musicians and instructors on the island. She has developed her own unique style by being immersed in such a rich musical culture. She has toured nationally and internationally as a solo artist, a sideman and is a member of the Cape Breton Celtic super group Beolach. She has performed with the Rankin Sisters, Unusual Suspects and Bruce Guthro to name but a few. Mairi has recorded one solo album, two CDs with Beolach and has been featured on numerous compilations and recordings. Eric Wright, cellist of The Fretless fame, joins Mairi in an inspired pairing. The duo has been collaborating on several music projects. Eric Wright picked up the cello at age 7, and began his musical career as a classically trained musician. By 13, he was teaching group and private lessons in Vermont, while playing in numerous chamber groups and orchestras. While he loved classical music, his father’s background in Irish and Old Time American fiddling was what really drew him in. Eric attended the Berklee College of Music where he studied folk styles and graduated Magna Cum Laude as a Professional Music major, focusing on Irish Cello Performance. Eric has since joined forces with the multi-award winning group, The Fretless, a contemporary traditional fusion group, and has been touring all over Canada, the US, and Europe ever since. When not on tour with the Fretless, Eric is the Celtic/Old Time cello, guitar, and banjo teacher at many music camps.

Saturday, November 30, 2019 | 8:30pm Leahy $30 Advance / $35 Door Over the course of their notable career, Canadian group Leahy has secured a place as one of the country’s most highly regarded progressive folk-roots bands.  Their emergence on the Canadian music scene in the late 1990’s with their chart-topping instrumental single “Call to Dance”, introduced audiences to a new way of accessing a uniquely Canadian music genre.  The “Leahy sound” – a combination of strong stride piano, unique bass guitar and drumming styles along with driving rhythm guitar – was the foundation from which wildly talented fiddle led instrumentals and vocals were launched to mainstream music listeners.  Leahy would go on to win three Juno awards and receive countless accolades for their dynamic and powerful performances. To date Leahy has sold more than half a million albums worldwide. They have been featured in three PBS television specials – Leahy Live in Concert, Gael Force (with the Chieftains), and Leahy Live from Gatineau, Quebec – and are the subject of an Academy Award winning documentary, The Leahys: Music Most of All.  As well as touring extensively throughout Canada, the USA and Europe in support of three acclaimed records – Leahy, Lakefield, and In All Things – the band had the enviable opportunity of opening for fellow Canadian, Shania Twain, throughout the USA, Canada and the UK on her record-breaking Come On Over tour. Since early 2017 Leahy has been back in the studio recording new music.  The focus is on songs and the band’s original songwriting and instrumental compositions.  The result is a wide-ranging collection that reflects the individual personalities that make up Leahy.  Built on their roots and the distinctive “Leahy sound”, their new material reveals the band’s drive to continue pushing beyond its traditional footings.  It’s a powerful record that delivers a sumptuous feast of solid music, pulse-raising rhythms, compelling storytelling and infectious melodies. On the edge of a new chapter in their career, some things don’t change – the experience.  An encounter with Leahy is inimitable. Performances are full of energy, big rich sound, poignant songs, fiery instrumentals and percussive step-dancing – all delivered with unapologetic passion! In one word – unforgettable.   * Advertised pricing excludes taxes and fees

Saturday, November 30 - Door at 9pm, $10 More about Ol' Savannah: Ol' Savannah are a Montreal-based folk/roots band founded by Speedy Johnson and Bartleby J. Budde.

Ol' Savannah's style has been compared to a mix of Tom Waits, Roscoe Holcomb, Muddy Waters, and The Pogues. Ol' Savannah have made multiple appearances on Halifax, Nova Scotia's waterfront as part of the Halifax International Busker Festival (2010 & 2011). In Quebec, the group participated in Festival Fringe in Montreal and Chicoutimi in 2012, and they played Festival International de Folk Sale in June of 2013 in Ste-Rose-du-Nord. In June 2015, the band performed at the Montreal Folk Festival on the Canal. And, in May 2016, the group played Paddlefest in St-Andrews, New Brunswick. In October 2017, Ol' Savannah accepted an invitation to perform at Festival Le Grand Soufflet in Brittany, France, and followed that with a six-week tour in western Europe, which took the group to Belgium, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, and Italy, as well as France. Ol' Savannah have also recently completed their second European tour in May-June 2018, which included Labadoux Festival (Ingelmunster, Belgium), Southwell Folk Festival (Southwell, United Kingdom), and Muddy Roots Europe Festival (Waardaame, Belgium). From 2013-2017 and in 2019, Cult MTL readers voted Ol' Savannah into the "Best Country/Folk Act" category in the annual "Best of Montreal" survey. In 2018, the Ol' Savannah Hobo EP was nominated for Folk EP of the Year by GAMIQ, the independent music awards in Quebec, Canada.

Jerry Leger & The Situation live in Montreal w/ Li’l Andy!

November 30, 2019 @ 9:30 pm - December 1, 2019 @ 12:30 am EST
Quai des Brumes, 4481 Saint-Denis
Montreal, H2J 2L2 CA

Jerry Leger & The Situation live in Montreal celebrating the release of 'Time Out For Tomorrow' Doors 9:30pm / $10. Very special guest Li'l Andy. JERRY LEGER & THE SITUATION "Jerry Leger has that spark in him that all the great songwriters have. He's the real deal." - Ron Sexsmith "Time Out for Tomorrow has the compelling stories and great energy that I've come to rely on from this talented and prolific songwriter. Take the time to listen to Jerry Leger!" - Doug Paisley "One of the best Canadian songwriters." - ROLLING STONE "Time Out For Tomorrow is the upcoming album by Jerry Leger and the 3rd in a row that I've had the pleasure of producing. In my opinion it's the most precise example of his craft and vision so far. It's lean, mean and a beautiful collection of songs and sounds." - Michael Timmins, producer of Time Out For Tomorrow and founding member of Cowboy Junkies. Time Out For Tomorrow continues Jerry Leger’s run of consistently high output and displays the finely honed artistic vision that has been evident since 2005 when, at age 19, he released the first of nine studio albums, along with three more with his side projects The Del-Fi’s and The Bop-Fi’s. It’s added up to a body of work that was recently celebrated with the European-only compilation Too Broke To Die, aimed at Leger’s growing fan base in Britain and the EU. Most of those listeners didn’t discover Leger until his 2014 album Early Riser, his first with Michael Timmins of Cowboy Junkies handling production duties, as well as the first to be released on the Junkies’ label, Latent Recordings. The combination of Timmins’ capture-the-moment production aesthetic and the Rolling Thunder-esque chemistry of Leger’s longtime band The Situation (plus a few special guests) now appears unbeatable. And although Time Out For Tomorrow may not be as expansive as Leger’s previous Timmins-produced effort, the acclaimed 2017 double album Nonsense And Heartache, its more concentrated dose of everything Leger does best is just as potent. Songwriters such as Ron Sexsmith, Doug Paisley and outlets such as Rolling Stone, PopMatters and the Toronto Star have sung Leger’s praises. He’s also shared stages with The Sadies, Justin Townes Earle, Deer Tick, Tift Merritt, Dawes, and others. Leger also recently played the small but mighty Take Root Fest in Groningen, alongside Father John Misty, Kurt Vile, Neko Case, Shakey Graves, Alejandro Escovedo and more.
