Boreal “Songs for the Snowy Season” in Greenbank

December 7 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST
Greenbank Centennial Hall, 19965 7&12 Hwy
Port Perry, L0C 1B0 CA
+ Google Map

Like a glowing fire and a steaming mug of hot chocolate, Boreal’s “Songs For The Snowy Season” is the perfect antidote to a cold winter’s night. Award winning singer-songwriters Tannis Slimmon and Katherine Wheatley will be joined by their new band mate Angie Nussey to perform their show "Songs For The Snowy Season". With glorious voices, stunning harmonies, humorous stories and top-notch song writing, Boreal celebrates the coming of winter and the spirit of the holiday season. Angie and Tannis and Katherine have dug up old songs and written new ones about winter. Their lyrics conjure up vivid sights and sounds that so many Canadians would recognize: pine branches bending low, squirrels’ footprints in the snow, winter’s hush, the heave-ho of shovelling, the sound of slap shots off the boards, the angel truck drivers who lead us home in blizzards. Their love of harmonies, their combined song writing skills, their tour de force voices, and the joy they feel singing with each other all make for an unforgettable event. Join the others who make it a tradition to come every year to welcome winter at one of Boreal's shows. "Boreal is the perfect blend of three amazing talents into one body of heavenly harmony, humour and class! We love them!" Ginny Clements, Innisfil Live Music, Innisfil, Ontario “Boreal throws a cozy blanket around their audience with beautiful harmonies and heart-warming songs.” Folkway Music A Greenbank Folk Music Society concert presentation - https://greenbankfolkmusic.ca/ Tickets - $30 available at Blue Heron Books, 62 Brock St West in Uxbridge (905-852-4282), P O E Design, 146 Queen St. in Port Perry (905-985-0060), or by calling 905-985-8351.

Carlos del Junco

December 7 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm EST
Hugh’s Room Live, 2261 Dundas St. W.
Toronto, Ontario

Saturday, December 7, 2019 | 8:30pm Carlos del Junco $30 Advance / $35 Door * Carlos del Junco: harmonica / vocals Eric St. Laurent: guitars Henry Heillig: bass Danny Lockwood: drums It’s probably a good thing Carlos wasn’t there when the harmonica appeared in North America in the 1860s. Neil Young and Bob Dylan can probably roll with it when he says they are very mediocre harmonica players. Aspiring harmonica players Wyatt Earp and Billy the Kid might have overreacted and pulled out their pistols… To say that Carlos is just a harmonica player is like saying Jimi Hendrix was just a guitar player. He blows the blues harp through a prism — suddenly it seems he’s holding every color in the musical rainbow right there in his hands. Simultaneously sophisticated and raw, his playing blurs the boundaries between blues and jazz (hence the name for his band “The Blues Mongrels”). The emphasis is on blues, but Carlos and his band are not afraid to merrily traipse off in other directions delivering a seamless fusion of New Orleans second line grooves, swing, Latin, hip-hop or ska melodies, to swampy roots rock. Born in Havana, Cuba, del Junco (loosely translated “of the reeds”) immigrated with his family at the age of one. He bent his first note on a harmonica when he was fourteen, making his debut with his high school math teacher at a student talent night. In his early 20’s del Junco was immersed in a visual arts career; he graduated with honours from a four year programme, majoring in sculpture (click here to see photos) at the Ontario College of Art. Sculpture has definitely had an influence on his outlook on music: “Music is just a different way of creating textures and shapes.” Playing a ten hole diatonic harmonica, Carlos has developed the unique ability to play chromatically by using a recently developed “overblow” technique taught to him by jazz virtuoso Howard Levy. Overall, this approach to the diatonic harmonica, although much more difficult to achieve, is in many ways more expressive and communicative than the mechanized tone produced by the chromatic harmonica . Carlos is one of the few pioneers of this overblow method, bringing musical credibility to what has still been considered by many in the music industry – a fringe folk instrument. The sophisticated sound produced by del Junco is at once sensitive, soulful, and sexy while never forgetting the rawness inherent in blues music. website: https://www.carlosdeljunco.com youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9PP3Fv4aBs   * Advertised pricing excludes taxes and ticketing fees
