Chris Smither

Sunday, September 28

Petit Campus (57 Prince Arthur East)

Doors 7:30 pm - Show: 8:00 pm 

$25 / $15 students

GET TICKETS

 

Honing a synthesis of folk and blues for 50 years, Chris Smither is truly an American original.  Having released a series of timeless records since the early 1970s, Chris' newest release, Still On the Levee (release date: July 22, 2014),  is a career-spanning retrospective double CD. Recorded in New Orleans with studio-mates he calls The Motivators, Still On the Levee plays host to special guests including Allen Toussaint and Loudon Wainwright III. The record highlights the vast catalog of an American music master. Reviewers and fans from around the world agree that Chris is a profound songwriter, a blistering guitarist and, as he puts it, a 'one-man band to the bone.' Chris melds the styles of his two major influences, Lightnin' Hopkins and Mississippi John Hurt, into his own signature guitar sound.  His music continues to draw deeply from the blues, American folk music, modern poets and humanist philosophers. He may be best known for writing "Love You Like A Man" which Bonnie Raitt and, more recently, jazz great Diana Krall have covered.  His music has been covered by numerous artists and featured in soundtrack albums, independent film, television and commercials

 

New York Times:  WIth a weary, well-traveled voice and a serenely intricate finger-picking style, Mr. Smither turns the blues into songs that accept hard-won lessons and try to make peace with fate.

A classically-trained singer and jazz pianist, Davis first displayed his strengths with a painterly ability to translate human emotion into delicate aural canvasses of light blue steel and shale grey. A writer first, Jon poses many questions and, through introspective lyrics, invites the listener to dig for answers. Possessed of a delicate, almost chameleonic voice, you can hear distant similarities in style from James Taylor to Nick Drake, Coldplay’s Chris Martin to Lindsey Buckingham. Yet no one here reveals the degree of intimacy that Davis does in his lyrical approach. - See more at: http://jondavismusic.ca/en/biography/#sthash.Om20DMNC.dpuf

Anna Scouten has been attracting a lot of attention from a young age as a talented and sophisticated performer, with steely blue eyes and an arresting voice. Based in Montreal and originally from Bowen Island BC, this 21 year old is on the verge of blowing the top off Canadian indie-folk music. Her lyrics are cutting and her melodies are unexpected. With heavy influences of Bon Iver, Feist, Joni Mitchell and Billie Holiday, and a history steeped in jazz and folk music, this is a young musician you’re going to want to keep an eye out for.

Session Americana

Saturday, October 4

Petit Campus (57 Prince Arthur East)

Doors 7:30 pm - Show: 8:00 pm 

$20 / $10 students

Session Americana is a folk band in a whiskey bottle. This band/collective of talented musicians craft an musical experience unlike any other. On stage is a collapsible bar table wired with microphones, a vintage suitcase recast as a kick drum, an old Estey field organ, a pre-war parlor guitar, a mandocello made by a college room-mate-turned-luthier, a harmonica case fire damaged when Jack's bar went up in flames, and an assortment of other instruments that get passed around in this freewheeling modern hootenanny.

Doors 7:30 pm - Show: 8:00 pm 

$15 / $10 students

Del Barber grew up in the Canadian Prairies, and the landscape is as much a part of him as the people he has met along the way. From the fertile Red River Valley to the pastures of the west, straight into the factory floors and slaughter houses of the city, Barber’s fourth album, Prairieography, is born out of a love for his home, its people and their stories.

$25 / $15 students

David Bromberg has spent his life absorbing traditional music from its surviving creators and their recordings so convincingly – while adding his own instrumental twists – that he has become a part of musical tradition itself, as close to the source of American roots music as anyone alive. Folk, blues, bluegrass, ragtime, you name it – he has become The Real Deal.

"Fish & Bird's carefully planned, creative musical juxtapositions are a delight, all the better given the scarcity of such inventiveness in much of today's safe, homogenised musical output." R2 Magazine (UK)

Raised on equal parts roots music and Radiohead, Fish & Bird have received praise on both sides of the Atlantic for their refreshingly unclichéd writing. With their upcoming fourth album, Something in the Ether, (in stores in fall 2014), the young Canadian band continue to reimagine folk music for a new generation.

Steel Rail has released three albums: River Song (2005), The Road Less Travelled (2000) and A Thousand Miles of Snow (1995). The Road Less Travelled was a finalist in the Country-Roots category of the 2000 Crossroads Music Awards in the U.S., and spent time at the top of the CBC-Galaxie folk-roots radio charts in Canada. The band's debut album, A Thousand Miles of Snow, also garnered critical praise in Canada and the U.S. and airplay on country, campus, community and public broadcasting stations across Canada.

 

A national treasure and a local Montreal favourite, Steel Rail has not performed locally for a number of years.  Hello Darlin' is so pleased to be able to welcome them back to the Montral stage!

"Two voices in perfect harmony."

That's how one music writer described the Montreal-based duo of Bill Garrett and Sue Lothrop. That rich vocal blend is the hallmark of a folk-music partnership that celebrates fine songwriting and a shared history growing up in rural Quebec.

Bill and Sue began their musical relationship after recording Bill's last solo CD, Seems To Me in 1999. The vocal magic and the distinctive musical approach that resulted have continued to evolve and these days, their tight harmonies, fine guitar picking and tasteful repertoire are winning over fans across the country.

Dave Gunning

“Dave Gunning is the next big thing in the True North of Song, an artist as compelling, as assured and attentive to every nuance of the writing process as Lightfoot, Cockburn and Stan Rogers before him.”  — Greg Quill, The Toronto Star 

There are stories that wash over you like a tide, and then there are stories that grab you by the heart.  Dave Gunning has made a point of finding the latter and wrapping them up in song since he broke upon the East Coast music scene in Canada back in 1997.  The Pictou County, Nova Scotia born and bred singer-songwriter and working class hero has built up from humble beginnings to a point where his name is regularly included in conversation with artists such as David Francey, James Keelaghan, Ron Hynes, Stan Rogers, Bruce Cockburn and Gordon Lightfoot.  Writing from a sonic menu that includes flavors of Irish, Scottish,  folk and country musical styles, Dave transcends genre with songs that fill your senses and touch your soul.

an afternoon workshop on the Warner Collection

 

Jeff Davis is one of America’s most respected collectors and interpreters of traditional music. He has traveled far to visit “source singers”--farmers and miners who remembered the old songs and tunes--and closer at hand to libraries and archives, always look for the best of the music that was once common in out towns and villages.

Jeff plays fiddle, banjo, mandocello, guitar, spoons, jaw’s harps and a few instruments hand-made by some folk craftsmen.
