Hugh’s Room Live, 2261 Dundas St. W.
Toronto, Ontario

Thursday, May 2, 2019 | 8:30pm Raine Hamilton + Campbell Woods Advance: $20.00 / Doors: $25.00 Raine Hamilton Raine’s new album, Night Sky (March 2018), tips between the earthly and the otherworldly; it is anchored in relatable lived experience, while reaching into the space just beyond, thinning the veil between here and there, affording safe passage to the rough and beautiful places. Raine’s ethereal voice and lyrics are at the forefront of these powerful and relatable tunes, written both in English and in French. Alongside cello + double bass, and with Raine on violin or guitar, these songs have a moving string quartet feel with a cosmic reach. Raine is also a charming and funny storyteller, pairing her vulnerable tunes with engaging story intros. Raine believes that music is for everyone, and that we all have something to share. An experienced educator, Raine offers workshops in songwriting and fiddle tune writing (EN/FR). Raine also offers concerts with American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation, to help make live music and the community that comes with it accessible to the Deaf community. Raine has toured Canada extensively, driving, flying, and floating her way coast to coast. Highlights include: Performing songs with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra (3 times!), playing a concert in a cave (10 stories below the earth!), playing festivals across Canada (Home County, Filberg Fest, Lilac Fest, The Works, Harvest Sun, Harvest Moon, Trout Forest), playing for her passage on Via Rail, and meeting so many amazing humans along the way. She reports a full and smiling heart <3. Campbell Woods Campbell Woods released his debut record, “Oxford Street” in the spring of April 2017. He’s been on the road ever since, performing everywhere from Vancouver to Halifax to Nashville to Austin. As a songwriter he’s been compared to Townes Van Zandt and John K. Sampson. Powerful songs, simply delivered. “Oxford Street” debuted at no. 4 on the Canadian folk radio charts and was nominated for a Toronto Independent Music Award. The last two years have brought some exciting things: a new record, an opportunity to participate in the Banff Singer-Songwriter residency, music festivals from Halifax’s In The Dead of Winter to Vancouver Island’s Vancouver Island MusicFest, and ever more touring across Canada. Campbell is looking forward to releasing a new record in 2019, recorded in Montreal at the mythic hotel2tango. “Campbell is one of the truest songwriters I’ve heard come out of Canada in a long time. His writing comes from the soul of an ancient spirit; he is a poet with a flair for haunting images. Campbell has done his homework when it comes to the craft of songwriting. His is a new, shining light!” * Advertised pricing excludes taxes and fees.

HORNBY BLUES with Cécile Doo-Kingué, Tim Williams, Paul Pigat & Michael Jerome Browne

May 3 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm PDT
St. James Hall, 3214 W. 10th Ave.
Vancouver, British Columbia V6K 2L2 Canada
+ Google Map
$24.00

The Hornby Island Blues Workshop takes place every spring on Hornby Island. Each year they invite a dozen or so of the finest Canadian blues and roots musicians around to share their knowledge and inspiration with some lucky students. We thought - why not catch some of these great players, singers and all-round entertainers, and get them to do a show for us on the way through Vancouver? One of our own teams up with three of the best from the rest of Canada. It's a simple but foolproof formula! This is the third year that we have presented this delightful showcase. As if this concert wasn't special enough, three of the four musicians will be bringing along freshly released CDs with them. Tim, Michael and Paul all have put out new material in the past few months. Cécile Doo-Kingué An exceptional stage presence, guitarist / singer-songwriter Cécile blends blues, afro-roots and soul to create a unique sound. Born and raised in New York City, first generation from Cameroon, she has lived in the USA, France, and is now an adopted Montrealer. Considered one of Canada’s most electrifying and versatile guitarists, she has explored blues, roots and life in their myriad of aspects, earning her accolades and multiple Maple Blues Award nominations for her exceptional guitar playing, soulful vocals, and powerful songwriting. Cécile Doo-Kingué is quickly earning a stellar reputation and a place alongside Canada’s current roster of great guitarists. Powerful and raw, Cécile Doo-Kingué’s guitar prowess, lyrics, and sound make for enthralling and intimate communion. "Full of sophisticated musicianship and striking lyricism." - Living Blues Magazine. Read an article here written by Alexander Varty about Cécile in the Georgia Straight. Tim Williams Tim Williams is a blues-based singer / songwriter / multi - instrumentalist. He is a 40 year veteran of the roots music scene in North America, roots which stretch back to the coffee-house scene of his native California in the mid 60's. Imagine, if you can, a front porch where Robert Johnson, Hank Williams, Hula Hattie, Flaco Jimenez and Bob Marley meet often and discover just how much they have in common.  Tim's music would fit right in. Settling in Canada in 1970, Tim is a studio musician, producer, and a performer in constant demand. He has played Folk / Blues / Jazz festivals and concert halls and clubs from Halifax, to Vancouver Island, to the Yukon. Inspired by the Hillbilly and Western Swing music he heard as a child, Tim absorbed late Fifties Rhythm & Blues and Rock & Roll, Hawaiian and Mexican music, early Sixties Folk, and Bluegrass “like a sponge” before discovering a passion for traditional blues styles which was fueled by seeing many first generation blues musicians live during the Blues Boom of the mid and late Sixties. NEW RELEASE: 'Corazones Y Murrallas'. Paul Pigat What kind of music do you want Paul to play? Blues? Jazz? Gospel? Bluegrass? Punk? Classical? Metal? Rockabilly? Western Swing? Something unique, say Mel Torme meets AC/DC? He could do it, and he could it well, he's that kind of guy. Paul Pigat can play just about every style and technique imaginable, with a modern twist that is both fluid and precise, and is without fail exhilarating in its intensity. Diversity in a musician is always a bonus, but of course at a blues concert Paul will narrow the scope for sure, to focus on his brand of country meets bebop blues and traditional delta finger style. With his rockabilly heart and his hobo soul this self admitted guitaraholic is like a pitbull on a bone when it comes to practicing his craft. “Hot enough to raise sweat on a chunk of granite!” - Monday Magazine. "His lead guitar is stunning and the generous breaks bristle with invention and at times are lightning fast.” - Now Dig This (UK). NEW RELEASE: Boxcar Campfire - 'The Game'. Michael Jerome Browne MJB is a three-time Canadian Folk Music Award winner, Maple Blues Award winner (32 nominations since 1999), Kerrville (Texas) New Folk Finalist, four-time Juno Award nominee in both the Roots/Traditional and Blues categories. He's a multi-instrumentalist, a songwriter, and a living encyclopedia of American roots music. Whether he's gliding a slide across his national guitar, pulling his bow over the fiddle strings to play a lively Cajun waltz, or frailing away on his gourd banjo, Michael's passion and virtuosity always shine through. In the true tradition of folk music, his performances inspire us to see the interconnections between the many cultures and influences that gave birth to American roots music, gospel, blues, old-time, country, soul and Cajun, expect to hear all of this and more from a performer who's been called a street-smart archivist and an absolute treasure. A musician's musician, when he isn't performing his own material he is in demand backing up and recording with other artists, most notably Eric Bibb, whose Grammy nominated CD “Migration Blues” he co-produced and played on. "Arguably the finest acoustic blues artist in this country.” - The Globe and Mail. NEW RELEASE: 'That's Where It's At!' PLEASE NOTE that we have no connection with the Hornby Island Blues Workshop. For more information about it, please see their web site here. They are celebrating their 20th Anniversary this year, and have just been given the 'Blues Booster of the Year' award by the folks at Maple Blues.

Zoe Chilco Presents: Songs to Inspire

May 5 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm EDT
Hugh’s Room Live, 2261 Dundas St. W.
Toronto, Ontario

Sunday, May 5, 2019 | 8:30pm Zoe Chilco Presents: Songs to Inspire Advance $25.00 / Door: $30.00 Please note that tickets to this show are available EXCLUSIVELY through our box office, either by phone or in person. To guarantee your seats, please call the box office at (416) 533-5483 and lay your claim. *** Zoe Chilco I had the idea for a benefit concert back in January, 2018, hoping to fulfill two goals. First, I wanted to help a women’s organization in the ongoing work of bringing dignity, housing, clothing, or any necessary aid to women here in Toronto. I chose to partner with “Sistering.” It’s a group that has been operating since the seventies, and has provided invaluable counselling and concrete and critical help to countless women. Secondly, I wanted to hear songs of mine that have messages of equality, social justice, self-esteem, or environmental responsibility interpreted by different vocalists. I wanted it to be informed by the power of the music, and allow for interpretations of how the words might resonate with people. The night will feature the following artists as they pay tribute to the music of Zoe Chilco. Dawn Duvall Dawn DuVall started singing professionally in 1975, playing small Toronto venues; toured Ontario and the east coast for two years with a show band, and after that, with a second band for another year, before finally returning to Toronto where she joined a pop/rock band, again touring. Later in Toronto, with pianist Lorraine Ingle, she formed a blues-based band, “The Hi-Lites”, and from that group she and Lorraine created the well-known blues and boogie duo “Blue Willow”, which, over fourteen years, performed and produced two cd’s, one of them award- winning. Dawn is currently working with her partner/piano player Tom Melville, recording a new cd of eclectic styles of music with her band “Dawnsville”. Kim Doolittle My ninth studio album “Into The Blue” is the sum of a 43 year artistic journey. (It) dropped April 8, 2017, charting on Stingray Music, The Blues Radio Network, CBC, Toronto Blues Society Charts, Blues and Routes Radio, and Folk Routes to name a few. “My….songs are reflective, and meant to create hope and optimism through strength, perseverance, trust, and spirit…. heavily influenced by blues, roots, gospel, folk, and kitchen parties courtesy of my Nova Scotian childhood.” Taborah Johnson Taborah Johnson is a Canadian singer and actress who began her career in the Toronto production of Hair as a teenager. She was subsequently a backing vocalist for Rick James from 1979 to 1982, including on James’ most famous single, “Super Freak”.

Joe Charron | The Eisenhauers

Joe Charron Joe first stood on stage in front of 200 people when he was 5 years old at a Huntsville, Ontario festival . He remembers being scared to death ... but he thrill never left him. When Joe was a kid he used to sit beside the big old floor model radio with the rotary dial and listen and sing along to his parents' music... the crooners (Crosby, Clooney, Kaye), the Rat Pack, maybe some Hank Williams. Then, late one night through some freak of nature in the atmoshere he heard Movin' and a' Groovin with Cousin Brucie". It was a show on WABC New York and a wild man going by the moniker of "Cousin Brucie" was playing the Beatles. The British Invasion was on. Joe was never the same after that. Joe started writing poetry when he was a teenager. While he was at York University in Toronto he started going to The Riverboat club. He got fascinated with the singer/songwriter thing and started putting his words to music. Joe has always been a bookworm and the use of language to paint pictures is his passion. To him the challenge in songwriting has always been to tell a short story in three and a half minutes. Tom Waits' comment; "Vocabulary is my instrument" has continued to be a signpost. Joe has appeared on festival stages such as: Mariposa, South Country Fair, Islands Folk Festival, Burns Lake Bluegrass Festival and Coombs Bluegrass Festival. In the late nineties Joe co-produced and hosted a short TV intervew/performance series for Shaw Cable to honor travelling singer/songwriters called Canadian Songsmith with guests like Fred Eaglesmith, David Essig, Bill Bourne, Pat Temple, Will Millar, Joe Hall and Diamond Joe White. Every once in awhile you still see one of the segments pop up on some public channel. Joe Charron will be accompanied tonight by his band Great?Divide: Don Fraser (dobro & guitar), Michael Burnyeat (fiddle) and Stu MacDonald (bass). Guesting at various points along the way will be Wahl (mandolin) Angela James (cello) and Jane Slemon (flute). REVIEW "THIS PLACE CALLED HOME is the title of Joe Charron's fifth CD. His strong voice is the pitch perfect medium for its 13 tracks. Like old cowboys and poets, Joe packs a whole lot of meaning into just a few simple words. Those old verities, love, honour, pity, pride, sacrifice and compassion are played out in scenes where often the human heart is in conflict with itself. Here are loners, lovers, drifters, dreamers and wanderers facing life's uncertainties with as much courage as they can. Joe's keen eye and ear for iconic settings, old stone fences, a single rose on a kitchen table, deserted barns, two-lane highways, the sound of a fiddle in the next room, a blackbird on the wing... even the moon in June, all combine to evoke those places where, taking our chances, we ourselves once walked a little bit lost, a little bit lonesome, a long way from home. Yes, all that's in there and with a great band to boot, you've got yourself a CD that you can leave in permanent rotation on the player." - Don Davidson, Vancouver, BC The Eisenhauers It has been said that all Canadian writing inevitably reflects the almost impenetrable vastness of the land and the great distances that separate us. If The Road We Once Knew by the husband and wife duo of Jeremy Eisenhauer and Sheree Plett Eisenhauer, is any indication, you’d be hard pressed not to come to the same conclusion about Canadian music. Simple, spare and heartbreaking in its directness, the concepts of distance, time and the wavering arcs of separation and reunion have rarely been as compellingly explored as they are in this powerful debut album. The Road We Once Knew is, at heart, a meditation on change that explores the dynamics of escaping from the city and moving to the country. In the Eisenhauers’ case, the move involved swapping life in metropolitan Vancouver for the relative seclusion of Kaslo, an old lumber town tucked deep in Eastern British Columbia’s Purcell Wilderness Conservatory. The decision to pull up stakes was motivated by the need to find a place with enough peace and quiet to care for Sheree’s mother, who was suffering from a terminal illness.  When she passed away not long after they arrived in Kaslo, they suddenly felt cut off and quite alone, with only the ‘trees, lakes, and world around them as friends.’  When Sheree plaintively cries ‘there’s a wilderness inside of me’, on the album’s final cut, it is obvious that she knows of what she sings.  Isolation brought unexpected rewards, however, as their seclusion allowed the pair to go inward and reflect, before eventually surfacing and writing music together.  This was something that they had been unable to do while they lived in the city with all of its competition and distractions.  After twelve years of living and making music together and recording eight solo albums between them as ‘Eisenhauer’ and ‘Sheree Plett’, The Road We Once Knew is their first release under their shared family name. Realizing the significance of their decision to work together, Jeremy and Sheree wanted to ensure that their new songs got the treatment they deserved, so they bit the bullet, fundraised a handful of cash, and flew to Nashville to meet Steve Dawson and record at his legendary Henhouse Studio. The attractions of travelling to the country music capital to work with one of North America’s most renowned roots music craftsmen were obvious, but more than that, the journey offered the Eisenhauers the opportunity to focus on their music and songwriting fully, ‘without the beautiful and messy chaos’ of their busy lives to distract them.  With kids and a pile of projects awaiting them upon their return to Kaslo, they made the best of their time in Nashville and got down to work right away to record 15 songs in 5 days, with 14 of them making it onto the album. With its songs of loss, faith and the gratitude of…

The Nell & Jim Band

May 23 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm PDT
St. James Hall, 3214 W. 10th Ave.
Vancouver, British Columbia V6K 2L2 Canada
+ Google Map
$20.00

Listen to the music of the Nell & Jim Band, and you will be transported back to a time when artists freely spoke of their thoughts and beliefs. Steel, their brand-new album, continues the time-honored tradition of musical activism that made such acts as Janis Ian or Peter, Paul and Mary so unforgettable. Whether it be the title cut (an ode to Jim Nunally’s former life as a welder) or “Speed Limit,” a song about the fact that life doesn’t have to end at 40, the Nell & Jim Band own their story by continuing to release original and thought-provoking music. Nell Robinson has been described as a “modern day Patsy Cline” and “one of the freshest voices in roots music.” Jim Nunally is a San Francisco Bay Area native, a musician, composer, record producer, and teacher. Jim was a guitarist and vocalist with the David Grisman Bluegrass Experience for over 13 years. He also performed for many years with John Reischman & The Jaybirds. He is one of the finest interpreters and performers of bluegrass and traditional music. Jim is a recipient of two Grammy and IBMA Awards and is a two-time Western Open Flatpicking Guitar champion. An all-star band backs Nell and Jim with harmonies and virtuoso instrumentals. Jim Kerwin, on bass fiddle, is recognized by fans of musicians ranging from Jerry Garcia to Yo-Yo Ma (and he’s performed with both artists). As David Grisman’s go-to bass player for over 30 years, Kerwin can be heard on the iconic recordings Garcia and Grisman did for their band Old & In The Way. In addition to Ma, Kerwin has backed some of the finest fiddlers in the world, including Stefan Grappeli. Jon Arkin plays percussion and never fails to please; his steady beat and sonic creativity have drawn world jazz talents – including Gene Perla and Lee Konitz – to hire him. New to the ensemble this year is Rob Reich on accordion and keys. Reich’s broad appeal as a composer, arranger, and performer keeps him busy with everything from Circus Bella, to acoustic chamber ensemble Tin Hat, to his new album of originals Swing Left. "Nell & Jim Band’s Steel delivers sparkling harmonies, clever songwriting, rapturous and rollicking instrumentals, carrying us through the ambiguities and promises of life, love, and hope." - Folk Alley "The album’s title track conjures up memories of Bob Dylan covering hoe-down in compact reedy timbres...guitars infuse the music with buoyant accents. Nunally goes a cappella on 'Meditation Blues,' accompanied only by ticking clocks. This tune delivers the mood and feel of Janis Joplin’s 'Mercedes Benz'" - Rawckus Magazine Steel is tantalizingly excellent, delivering delicious down-home country flavors, creamy rhythms, and marvelous melodies. - Thrive Global
