$33

Three musicians with a singular sound, a playful yet accomplished interplay that seems to defy the laws of physics, an intensity with a great sense of humor, and modernity rooted in tradition. Väsen, a Swedish acoustic trio, is now in its 27th year of touring together. The parts: a five-string viola of sophisticated symphonic taste, an adventurous 12-string guitar, and a nyckelharpa (a “keyed fiddle”) deeply rooted in the traditions of Swedish folk music. All three are instrumental virtuosos in their own right, and together they form a unique supernatural being. To experience Väsen is to witness ensemble playing at its finest. The band's origins are deeply rooted in the forests and rich earth of the Swedish countryside, in the centuries-old tradition of the folk music of Uppland. It's a tradition spiced with consummate playing skills. But this is more than just a traditional sound. There's a playfulness to their music, a joyousness, and a delight in making exciting new arrangements of centuries-old tunes, and new originals inspired by the tradition. Rock, jazz, traditional, and classical influences weave together, making a music that's beautiful but never cloying. You always hear the inspiration and improvisation of the moment. And we can promise that you’ll never know what will happen next. Vasen is: Olov Johansson - nyckelharpa Mikael Marin - viola Roger Tallroth - 12-string guitar, bouzouki & octave mandolin.

A Tribute to Levon Helm, the 6th Anniversary Celebration will feature Jerome Levon Avis (Levon’s godson) with Musical Director, Lance Anderson, alongside Terry Blersh, Dave Dunlop, Rob Gusevs, Chris Murphy, Gord Myers, Dennis Pinhorn and Simon Wallis.

Toronto, Ontario

Monday, April 15, 2019 | 7:30PM Eric Andersen + Scarlet Rivera with Cheryl Prashker Advance: $30.00 / Doors: $35.00 * Eric Andersen Eric Andersen, one of the founding fathers of the great American Folk Family, continues to evolve and reinvent himself.  It’s as though he has an unquenchable thirst to create new works and adapt the works of other literary icons of the past. For me that is the mark of a true artist, constantly moving the finish line and looking for new ways to express himself and not fearful of taking the great works of others and translating them into song in his own undeniable fashion. “Andersen is the most elegant of singers.” – Rolling Stone “A singer and songwriter of the first rank.” – The New York Times “Eric Andersen is a great ballad singer and writer.” – Bob Dylan Scarlet Rivera Scarlet Rivera is a talented and accomplished American violinist. She is best known for her work with Bob Dylan, in particular on his album Desire and as part of the Rolling Thunder Revue. Bob Dylan is often credited for discovering Scarlet before the rehearsal for his 1975 Rolling Thunder Revue tour. After a session with her, Dylan invited her to play on the “Rolling Thunder Revue” tour. Scarlet has multiple CD’s as a composer in numerous styles, instrumental, New Age, Celtic and world music. Scarlet has performed in the US, Europe and Japan with her Celtic group. She also recorded and performed with Tracy Chapman, Indigo Girls, Kori Linae Carothers, Keb Mo and others. Scarlet was a soloist with the Duke Ellington Orchestra at Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center and the Carnival of Venice, Italy. She continues to be an active recording artist, performer and composer, and we’re over the moon she’ll be joining Eric Andersen on stage at Hugh’s Room Live on Monday, April 15, 2019. Tickets are on sale right now. * Advertised pricing excludes taxes and fees.

Toronto, Ontario

Thursday, April 18, 2019 | 8:30PM Byrds Byrds Byrds Advance $25.00 / Door: $30.00 * Byrds Byrds Byrds is a fantastic evening of the songs of The Byrds, California’s psychedelic, folk rock pioneers. More than a tribute band, this is a visceral evocation of an era. The songs remain classic; from the folk rock of Mr Tambourine Man, Turn Turn Turn and Bells of Rhymney, the freewheeling sonic attack of Eight Miles High, through to the relaxed country rock, that they basically invented. In essence, Byrds Byrds Byrds recreates the halcyon days of the sixties. It features: Tim Bovaconti – guitar / vocals Andy Maize – vocals Fergus Hambleton – guitar / vocals Bob McKitrick – bass Cleave Anderson – drums Youtube Mr. Tambourine Man She Don’t Care About Time * Advertised pricing excludes pricing and fees
