Oh Susanna and Friends

December 1 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm EST
Hugh’s Room Live, 2261 Dundas St. W.
Toronto, Ontario

Sunday, December 1, 2019 | 8:30pm Oh Susanna and Friends $25 Advance / $35 Door * Featuring: Abigail Lapell, Peter Elkas, Side Hustle, Ken Yates, Alex Pangman + Colonel Tom Parker Join the Juno Nominated singer-songwriter for her famous almost-annual Oh Susanna & Friends show!  Oh Susanna celebrates the incredible musical talent that Canada is famous for around the globe.  Performances from Oh Susanna and her talented friends will knock your socks off, fill your heart with a glow and rmore than ready to face the upcoming holiday madness. Oh Susanna Performing since 1996, Oh Susanna has released eight critically acclaimed albums.  She is the recipient of a Genie Award for Best Original Song and a Canadian Folk Music Award for English Songwriter of the Year.  She has also been nominated for two Juno Awards each for Best Roots and Traditional Album of the Year, as well as two Canadian Folk Music Awards for Best Solo Performer and for Best Contemporary Singer of the Year Abigail Lapell Call it prairie noir, or Canadiana desert rock: Abigail Lapell sings haunting, gorgeous modern folk songs, mapping epic natural landscapes and deeply intimate, personal territory. The Toronto vocalist, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist has released three acclaimed solo albums. Hide Nor Hair, her Chris Stringer-produced sophomore LP, won a Canadian Folk Music Award for Contemporary Album of the Year in 2017. Since then, Lapell has been on the road, touring across Canada, the U.S. and Europe, and playing at festivals like Pop Montreal, Mariposa, In The Dead Of Winter, Tiny Lights and Folk On The Rocks. Getaway, , Lapell’s ambitious third release, is out February 1st 2019 on Coax Records/Outside. Peter Elkas Unlike some desperate trend chasers, from his days in the legendary Canadian cult band Local Rabbits, Elkas has always known his voice and trusted who he really is—a witty, romantic, old school soul rocker. Maybe that’s why he can hang out with Springsteen in New Jersey or collaborate with people like Charlie Sexton and Joel Plaskett. Blood brothers know their own.  Check out his new release: Lion. Ken Yates Since first planting roots within the Canadian music scene in 2011, Ken Yates has steadily grown a reputation as one of the country’s brightest singer/songwriters. His sound offers the complete package—unforgettable melodies, emotionally charged storytelling, and top-notch guitar chops—all gloriously displayed on Yates’ album, Huntsville, which received two Canadian Folk Music Awards for Songwriter of the Year and New Artist of the Year in 2017. Side Hustle Pushing an upbeat, melody-driven brand of indie rock with a bare bones harmony centric delivery, Side Hustle were formed in Toronto in 2016. Fronted by song writing duo Pete Casey and Chloë Doucet, Side Hustle began after Chloë caught Pete’s solo residency with a three-piece band and the pair immediately bonded over a love of 60s pop song craft. Chloë joined on keys and vocals a month later. Side Hustle released their first single in January 2018 entitled ‘This’ll Never Seem Real’. Alex Pangman + Colonel Tom Parker Although Alex Pangman grew up a couple of generations late to have sung with Teddy Wilson, the vibrant young vocalist is proud to be known as Canada’s Sweetheart of Swing. With pipes aplenty, Juno nominee Pangman possesses the requisite taste, talent and the historical knowledge of an avid record collector to breathe new life into the sturdy standards of the classic jazz era.   Tom Parker is a Toronto-based traditional country music singer, songwriter, educator and instrumentalist. He has led a number of bands, recorded 5 albums of old-time and “classic” country music, both acoustic and electric, and currently leads the honky tonk group Colonel Tom & the American Pour.   Alex and Tom will be performing as a dynamic duo. Together they make a delicious cocktail of old time Jazz and Country mixed with a shot of sophistication and notes of down-home charisma. website: https://www.ohsusanna.com/ youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFDB9YwI1Xw   * Advertised pricing excludes taxes and ticketing fees.

Ian Foster and Nancy Hynes “A Week In December”

December 3 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST
Take Note! Music House, given upon reservation (downtown Barrie, near the courthouse)
Barrie, ON L4M 1J5 Canada
+ Google Map
$20

The Take Note! Music House presents Newfoundland performers Ian Foster and Nancy Hynes in their seasonal concert “A Week in December”, on Tuesday, December 3 at 7:00 pm (doors open at 6:30). Requested donation is $20, with all proceeds going directly to the artists. You may reserve your seat by emailing concerts@takenotepromotion.com or calling 705-305-1687 (yes, the phone is working again – it’s a Christmas miracle!). The address is given upon reservation – downtown Barrie, near the courthouse. Ian Foster, native of Newfoundland, is a storyteller. That music is the way he tells those stories only makes the telling richer still. Modern folk wrapped in Canadiana, Ian’s writing style belies a love of history, home and the humble tale. Last year, he teamed up with his long time partner in life and song, Nancy Hynes, to release “A Week in December” – a seasonal album. Nancy’s voice can be heard on most of Ian’s catalogue, as well as countless albums from NL, where she lends and blends her voice with some of the province’s best singers. Ian Foster (www.ianfoster.ca) “A fine example of what a 21st century folk performer should be doing.” Ian Foster’s story- and character-driven lyrics mix with a modern sensibility. Often likened to Canadian songwriting icon Bruce Cockburn in both writing and guitar style, and to artists like Daniel Lanois for his atmospheric approach to sound, Ian’s music has been described as thoughtful, introspective, cinematic, hopeful, and cathartic by critics and fans alike. He has numerous awards and nominations to his credit, including SOCAN Songwriter of the year nominations, multiple East Coast Music Association and MusicNL awards nominations, and a finalist with the International Songwriting competition. Amongst his many co-writing credits is a song with the legendary Canadian folk artist Ron Hynes (who appeared here in one of his final performances in 2015). “A tasteful contemporary singer/songwriter with a poet’s keen sense and a searcher’s infinite explorative mind.” Since Ian’s first performance (2014) at the Take Note! Music House, he has released both “A Week in December” and “Sleeper Years”, toured internationally, produced critically acclaimed and award-winning albums for artists like Kat McLevey and Melanie O’Brien, and has toured with his second short film, “Keystone”, which was called one of the top ten short films of the year by the Calgary International Film Festival. Ian has been touring since 2007, across Canada, the U.S., Germany, The Netherlands, Austria and Italy, and has had his music played on radio and television internationally. He has performed his music for audiences of all ages, from school workshops to seniors’ homes, festivals in Canada, U.S., and Italy, to soft-seat theatres, churches, pubs and house concerts – the constant has been connection with the audience. Much like our Take Note! Music House host, Ian continues to wear many musical hats, including touring songwriter, music producer, film director, writer, and composer. All of these different facets come together in his songwriting and performances, and we’re so happy to have him return to the TNMH. “Foster had a true knack for fully engaging the crowd with his genuine and light-hearted banter… a hit both with the audience, and certainly with us.” YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZDdLG0HU21dnk215ipoz9w Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ianfostermusic/ "Old Christmas Day”:  https://youtu.be/zsSMSYkro-g “A Week in December”: https://youtu.be/6De3swwV5OQ
