Special guest appearances by/invités spéciaux : Joey Landreth, Terra Lightfoot, William Prince The Festival of Small Halls and NAC Presents are happy to bring back the wildly popular Christmas with Matt Andersen. Join us for holiday favourites and even some surprises! Recorded live off the floor in Nashville, Tennessee, celebrated songwriter Matt Andersen’s tenth album, Halfway Home by Morning, collects all the essential elements for a down-home ramble. Over its lucky 13 tracks, he explores every facet of his sound—sweat-soaked soul, incendiary rhythm and blues, heartbroken folk, and gritty Americana—in the Southern Ground studio, the same spot that legends like Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, and Jerry Lee Lewis recorded. The album is as honest and compromise free as anything he’s ever done. Le Festival of Small Halls et CNA Présente sont heureux de vous présenter à nouveau le célèbre Noël avec Matt Andersen et ses ami(e)s. Rejoignez-nous pour passer de merveilleuses fêtes de Noël et découvrir d’autres surprises ! Enregistré en direct à Nashville, au Tennessee, le 10e album de l’auteur-compositeur acclamé Matt Andersen, Halfway Home by Morning, réunit tous les éléments essentiels pour une virée rustique. Sur 13 pistes chanceuses, il explore chaque facette de son univers musical — le soul suintant, le R&B incendiaire, le folk crève-cœur, l’Américana râpeux — au studio Southern Ground, l’endroit même où des légendes comme Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, et Jerry Lee Lewis ont enregistré certaines de leurs plus grandes chansons. Cet album est aussi honnête et libre de compromis, sinon plus, que tous ceux qui l’ont précédé.

Friday, December 20, 2019 | 8:30pm Kellylee Evans Winter Song $35 Advance / $40 Door * *MEMBERS-ONLY PRE-SALE ACTIVE UNTIL SEPTEMBER 25, 2019 JUNO Award-winning jazz vocalist Kellylee Evans warms up the Azrieli Studio just in time for the season with Winter Song: an enchanting night of holiday classics, new standards, and Kellylee’s own gems. Six albums deep, Kellylee Evans is still shaking it up on Come On, her latest Decca album. The stylistic connoisseur has tackled everything from jazz to R&B and pop in such previous tasty classics fight or flight?, Nina – her Juno-winning tribute to the legendary Nina Simone – and I Remember When. Praised by the Latin Jazz Network for a “gorgeous voice (that) rises to the heavens in rapturous wonder as if in consanguinity with a chorus of angels” and by the Yukon Arts Centre for “a stunning crystalline voice, both powerful and emotive,” Evans now pushes her muse firmly into the soulful pop territory with Come On: a wonderfully refreshing album about love and life that comes on the heels of two nearly career-ending accidents: a freak lightning strike in her Ottawa kitchen and further effects of a concussion suffered during a fall at her home. However, Evans is nothing if not resilient: the runner-up of the 2004 Thelonious Monk Competition offers views on love and loss in an alluringly rhythmic approach that has touches of psychedelic pop, resonating soul groove and that je ne sais quoi that is strictly Kellylee and forged by her jazz discipline. From the stirring soul-stomper “Come On” – which combines an effervescent Motown feel with traces of psychedelia – and the funky groove-a-liciousness of “Hands Up” to the string-and-horn-spiced magnetism of “Know His Worth,” the 10 songs of Come On find Kellylee at her most magically potent. website: http://www.kellyleeevans.com/ youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPzjtRKRa8A * Advertised pricing excludes taxes and fees.Find out more »
