Join Ellen Froese & the Hot Toddies for their very special Toronto album release show!

Whether performing a folk traditional, a rock 'n' roll classic with her full band, or her own compositions, Froese handles it with an air of authenticity – all tempered with a healthy dose of humour and self-deprecation. The last couple years have brought main stage slots at festivals like Regina Folk Fest, and tours through Germany’s DevilDuck Records. With four albums behind her, Froese will release full band record 'Fightin' Words' in November 2019.

Northern Lights Folk Club presents Lynne Hanson & Joe Nolan

November 23 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm EST
Northern Lights Folk Club, Parkview Community Hall / 9135 - 146 Street
Edmonton, T5R 4L5 CA
+ Google Map

Doors at 7:00, Show at 8:00 Tickets are $23, plus applicable service fees Too tough for folk and too blues influenced for country, LYNNE HANSON's brand of "porch music with a little red dirt" can turn on a dime from a sunshine, blue sky ballad to a full-on thunderstorm of gritty Americana swamp from one song to the next. She's known for her high-energy, roots guitar driven live performances, whether playing solo or with her band the Good Intentions. A closet standup comedian, Lynne often leaves the audience howling with laughter with her between-song-banter. A 2019 Western Canadian Music Award nominee for Roots/Solo artist, JOE NOLAN's unwavering strength as a lyricist, and his wounded-heart delivery remind us of our humanity. Few other songwriters consistently demonstrate a willingness to venture as deeply into the dark corners of their psyches. Joe recently received an Edmonton Music Award for Blues Recording of the Year.

About Alex Cuba: Alex Cuba is a Latin Grammy/Juno winner, singer-songwriter who is not tied to tradition; Alex has a vast musical vision. His sugarcane-sweet melodies, pop-soul hooks and powerful guitar riffs, relinquish a conventional stereotype that exemplifies much of the Latin music landscape. Born Alexis Puentes in Artemisa, Cuba, was immersed in music at a very young age, joining his father's (respected guitarist and teacher Valentin Puentes) group of 24 guitarists. Alex then went on to study electric and upright bass and touring and recording nationally and internationally. In 1999, Alex moved to Victoria, B.C where he recorded an album titled “Morumba Cubana” alongside his twin brother Adonis, as The Puentes Brothers. Alex then went on to record his solo debut album “Humo De Tobaco” in which earned him a Juno award for World Music Album of the Year in 2006. In 2007, Alex released “Agua Del Pozo” which also earned him another Juno award for World Music Album of the Year in 2008. From there, Alex released his third album, a self-titled project “Alex Cuba” in 2009. The album features his first ever English track titled “If You Give Me Love”. The album gained recognition on an international level. In 2010, Alex took home the award for Best New Artist at the 2010 Latin Grammy Awards, where it was also nominated for Best Male Pop Vocal Album.

Searson November 23 $25

November 23 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm EST
Neat Coffee Shop, 1715 Calabogie Road, Burnstown, Ontario, K0J 1 G0 + Google Map

The retun of Searson live on the intimate stage at Neat Coffee Shop November 23rd!! This is a phenomenal show not to be missed! The high energy of Searson is sure to please all!! Entertainment for the whole family, come join us in this experience!! Check them out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hz3oAl9RcE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYeNR_JAvU4 SEARSON Giving Canada’s old time sounds a renewal into modern roots; seamlessly blending spirited fiddling, energetic dancing and gorgeous harmonies. For over a decade now, Searson has toured the world with their unique blend of high energy fiddling, passionate vocals and intricate step dancing. At the core of Searson, are Colleen and Erin Searson, two sisters who hail from the Ottawa Valley, Ontario, Canada. Their spirited live shows feature Colleen on fiddle and Erin on piano & tenor guitar, interspersed with the incomparably rich sounds of sibling vocal harmonies, and both sisters “pounding the boards" with Ottawa Valley step dancing. Searson tours as a trio and their talents are complimented by alternating multi-instrumentalists that include acoustic & electric guitars, bass, mandolin and percussion. This talented trio performs sets that feature their original style of “Canadian Celtic Pop”, which includes a mix of traditional and original instrumental and vocal selections. Colleen and Erin have been immersed in the Ottawa Valley music tradition their entire lives. Erin trained classically through the Royal Conservatory of music in piano beginning at age 4. Colleen has been studying violin and fiddle methods from many styles around the world since age 9, and both sisters began step dance lessons before their 9th birthdays. They began performing locally and competing at step dance and fiddle contests throughout Ontario as children, which gave them the invaluable experience they needed to become accomplished performers and musicians. While the girls were in High School they performed across Ontario and Quebec at various events which garnered them the opportunity to gradually begin touring at a variety of events across Canada, the United States and Europe. A love of incorporating the Ottawa Valley style music with Celtic, East Coast, Scottish and various other genres caused them to expand their musical horizons, and the result is a sound all their own, which includes poignant compositions by both women. “The most satisfying part of performing live is seeing our fans singing along to songs that we’ve written and requesting fiddle tunes that we wrote,” Erin says, and Colleen chimes in, “absolutely, there’s nothing better than seeing the audience emotionally involved in your live show.” Like their live shows, Searson’s recordings reflect their eclectic tastes, while maintaining strong roots in the tradition they grew up in. In 2017 they released, Homegrown, to honour their Canadian heritage and to celebrate Canada’s 150 years since Confederation by featuring songs by Canadian artists, songwriters (Bryan Adams, Neil Young, Chantal Kreviazuk, Robbie Robertson), and instrumentalists (Natalie MacMaster, Denis Lanctot) who have influenced Searson in meaningful ways. This year, Searson will release their milestone tenth full length album, as well as their first live performance DVD. Both recordings document their performance in front of a live Ottawa Valley audience at the historical Neat Coffee Shop in Burnstown, Ontario. There is little overlap in musical selections between the full length audio CD and 60 minute live performance DVD from this celebration concert, and the DVD also includes “behind the scenes” clips and interviews with the band. In May 2015, Searson filmed a brand new national series for CBC called 'Still Standing’. Concurrently, they ran a successful crowdfunding campaign in support of their 2015 album Stars Above the Farm. They’ve hosted three bus tours in Ireland with their Kansas City friends, The Elders. They continue to tour across Canada, the United States, Germany, Denmark, Switzerland, Portugal, and Spain. Wherever they travel and whatever projects they undertake, their passion for their music and their roots shines through and connects with audiences in a memorable way.

Zachary Lucky w/ Richard Inman

November 23 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm EST
West End Cultural Centre, 586 Ellice Ave
Winnipeg, R3B1Z8 CA
+ Google Map

The road is no stranger to Canadian country singer Zachary Lucky. He’s used to rolling through hundreds of tour dates a year, sleeping in the back of his car, and playing his heart out in every town he moves through. He’s learned to trust the road, and to trust the gifts it brings. It’s a lesson he learned first from his grandfather, famed Canadian western singer Smilin’ Johnnie Lucky, who was known for relentlessly touring the Arctic regions of the country. In his youth, Zachary Lucky felt free on the road, driving from one town to the next and never staying long. “I never felt the need to come home” he says, “because there was never anything waiting for me there.” Ten years later, he’s got a new outlook on his life and a family waiting for him at home in Ontario. The songs on his new album Midwestern, coming October 18, 2019, grapple with fatherhood, the passage of time, and whether his daughters will grow up knowing the Canadian prairies he still loves. Born and raised in Saskatoon, Lucky finds himself in the company of other Saskatchewan artists like Colter Wall, Deep Dark Woods, and Kacy & Clayton. Why has this rugged Canadian province produced such great roots music? Lucky thinks some of it must come down to the prairie landscape and its people. “There’s something about the Canadian Midwestern people,” he says in explanation. “There’s a strong work ethic, and a kindness to them that you don’t find anywhere else. There’s also something about being in the middle of nowhere, beneath that vast prairie sky, watching it come alive with colour as the sun dips below the horizon.” To make Midwestern, Lucky headed south of Toronto to Hamilton, Ontario, to record with producer and engineer Dan Hosh, who had been a long time fan of Zachary’s previous releases. Lucky had a clear vision for the album and was looking to go back to his roots with a more stripped-back sound. “I have always been more of a guitar and a voice kind of person and have been drawn to music where the song comes before the production” he says. With Midwestern, Lucky wanted to work with a simpler, more direct sound, recording most songs on the album live off the floor and straight to tape: “I wanted these recordings to make the listener feel as though they were sitting right next to us.” Tapping into renowned roots musicians Ivan Rosenberg on dobro and John Showman (The Lonesome Ace Stringband) on fiddle, and his own touring band, Mitchell Thomson on upright bass, Will Fisher on drums, and Kevin Neal on pedal steel, Midwestern sounds effortlessly simple, the sure sign of master musicianship. The songwriting on Midwestern speaks to Zachary Lucky’s yearning for rural life (“Back to the Country”), his feelings about leaving home (“There Was A Time When I Used to Roam”), his thoughts on fatherhood (“Rock and Roll Dad”), his own childhood (“Sunday Morning At The Dragstrip”), and there’s even an apocalyptic ballad (“Revelation Blues”). He shares songwriting credits on some of the songs with fellow prairie songwriters Del Barber and Richard Inman. It’s an album of songs made during a time of reflection, for a man who’s constantly on the go. “When first I started making records, the space of the Canadian Midwest informed the kind of songs I was writing. There’s almost a sense of emptiness in my early songs. I wanted to try and recreate that with this record.” Doors - 7:15pm Show - 8:00pm Tickets Advance - $15.00 Door - $20.00 Tickets available at Eventbrite or by contacting the WECC box office at 204-783-6918.
