Acoustic Supper Show featuring My Father's Son

Mark Kulmala, is a Montreal-based musician, originally from Sault Ste Marie. His new solo project, My Father’s Son, brings together intricate lyrics and the richness of simplified, acoustic sound. Having played in different bands and a variety of genres over the years, this endeavour is a paired down amalgamation of lived experiences, both personal and musical, poetically put into emotionally complex but subdued, reflective songs. An air of story telling colours the music with sentimental and wholly relatable verses that communicate widely and are entirely immersive.

Ron Hawkins Crow Session Dinner Show

Details and tix coming soon.

Ron Hawkins has long been revered as one of Canada's greatest contemporary singer-songwriters. 


As lead singer/multi-instrumentalist and main songwriter of Canada's legendary Lowest of the Low, Ron Hawkins has enjoyed many accolades through the years:

 

In 1996, 2000 and again in 2005, Chart Magazine honoured the group's 1991 debut album, Shakespeare My Butt, with spots in the top 10 of the Top 100 Canadian Albums of All Time. In 2000 and once again in 2015, Hawkins was voted Songwriter of the Year by NOW Magazine's reader's poll.  Also in 2000, Ron received Toronto station 102.1 The Edge's Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2008 The Lowest of the Low was inducted into the Canadian Indie Rock Hall of Fame and awarded gold records for Shakespeare My Butt.

 Over the years, Ron has written and released four LOTL albums, five solo discs, three records with his band The Rusty Nails, and two records (one a double album) as Ron Hawkins and The Do Good Assassins. Adding them all up, Ron has released 15 albums of original material to date and has just released “Shakespeare My Box” a commemorative vinyl box set of the entire Lowest of the Low catalogue.


“My little home studio is only nine feet by nine feet but it’s packed with toys and musical goodies. It’s a bit like going down the rabbit hole.”

Barney Bentall Crow Session Dinner Show

Barney Bentall Crow Session Dinner Show

Sold Out

After a half decade layoff from recording on his own, Barney Bentall returns with his finest, his most powerful, and most incisive album to date, The Drifter & The Preacher on True North Records. 

A rugged, fiercely ambitious work, The Drifter & The Preacher combines an intensely personal artistry with a broader vision of a public figure coming to terms with his ordered life as a musician, as a songwriter, as a husband, as a father, and as a son while turning in his most urgent, and forceful performance in memory.

The album was recorded and mixed in Vancouver by John Raham at Afterlife Studios, excepting “Moon At The Door,” recorded and mixed by Sheldon Zaharko at Monarch Studios.

While his catalog overflows with stellar music, this masterful, expertly crafted album is in the vein of the best recordings of Blue Rodeo, Jackson Browne, John Prine, Ian Tyson, Ron Hynes, and Tom Cochrane, and may prove to be a truly defining moment in Barney’s musical legacy.

Despite several sabbaticals from the musical wars, Barney remains very much part of the fabric of Canadian music culture. 

As frequent collaborator Jim Cuddy, who guested on “Won’t Change The World,” notes, “Barney had a similar trajectory as a neo-roots troubadour to the one we experienced in Blue Rodeo. He has so successfully transitioned from fronting a rock band to being a true Canadian troubadour in the tradition of Lightfoot, McLauchlan, and Cohen. I have loved his solo records, and they have frequently brought me to tears. He is a very poignant songwriter. His voice has the ring of authenticity, and I am easily swept up in the narrative of his songs. His records are my ‘go to’ ones when I need some familiarity to soothe my worries. Quite a man, quite an artist.”

An Intimate Evening with Danny Michel

Biography;
The only good thing about NOT shopping in record stores like the good ol' days is you wont have to figure out what genre to look for Danny under. If that WERE the case, you could try looking under, rock/pop, folk, world or (recently) even classical

His own self-described musical A.D.D. has kept his music fresh for decades now. Thoughtful lyrics & charming performances have earned him a devoted fan base, nominations for three Juno awards, The Polaris Prize, and The CBCs "Heart Of Gold", and most recently winning the CFMA's "Producer of the year" and "Oliver Schroer Pushing the Boundries" Awards. 

After a 15 year love affair with the country of Belize Danny relocated there in 2011 to track down one of his favorite Belizean bands; The Garifuna Collective (A unique Afro-Amerindian cultural group) and convincing them to create an album together. That album (Black Birds Are Dancing Over Me) was called One of the finest musical works of our time By Billboard's Larry Leblanc & landed a 3rd JUNO nomination (this time in the World Music category) and a sold out summer tour of North America with The Garifuna Collective.

While in Belize, Danny also founded the Danny Michel Ocean Academy Fund that helps raise scholarships for a small non-profit community high school. To date Danny & his fans have raised over $74,000.00 for the school.

In 2016 Danny returned from Belize with "Matadora", his most deeply humanist album to date. This ten-song collection explores the environmentalist, pacifist, romanticist, archivist and space enthusiast in Danny.

Then it was off to the Arctic where Danny recorded Khlebnikov, (possibly the most northern album ever recorded/above 80) aboard the legendary Soviet-era Russian ice-breaker, Kapitan Khlebnikov during an 18-day arctic expedition through the northwest passage. The project began when Danny was invited to join Generator Arctic by Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield who assembled a small group of scientists, photographers, writers and musician to capture a unique perspective of the north.

Danny wrote and recorded the entire album aboard the Khlebnikov in cabin 712. Once home, Dannys recordings were arranged for brass and strings by film composer Rob Carli. The result is a suite of atmospheric and haunting songs about the Arctic, our planet and our place in it. Danny, Chris & Rob are performing "Khlebnikov" with symphonies across Canada. (Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, London and more in 2018)

Crow Session Dinner Show with Colin Linden

Crow Session Dinner Show with Colin Linden

COLIN LINDEN;

Born in Toronto, Canada, and raised in White Plains, New York, Colin Linden returned to Canada in 1970. He was already a guitar prodigy at 11 years old, and when most kids that age were playing sports, Colin was meeting and being mentored by one of his musical heroes, the great bluesman Howlin Wolf, which helped set the youngster on a course to pursue the sounds of his dreams. That encounter helped fuel a career that has featured his work on literally hundreds of albums. At last count, the total of recordings on which he has played approaches 400, while over 100 albums bear the Produced by Colin Linden credit.

Colin Linden is a genuine renaissance man of roots music. Hes a member of the highly successful trio, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, a singer and songwriter, an in-demand and prolific record producer, musical director on the hit TV show Nashville and sideman to the stars as guitarist for the likes of Bob Dylan, Bruce Cockburn, Emmylou Harris, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss.

Although Linden has had his hands in so many pots, he’s perhaps better known for his work on the foot-stompin TV show Nashville, which just finished its sixth and sadly, final season.

Linden is Nashvilles musical director and has also performed in front of the camera as a guitarist or bandleader. According to the Toronto Star, Linden got the job in part because he had already known the shows executive producer, T-Bone Burnett, from working with him on Cockburns 1994 album, Dart to the Heart, and the movie soundtrack from O Brother Where Art Thou? in 2000.

Linden’s work on Nashville also helped him, Stephen Fearing, and Tom Wilson develop the list of guest artists for both Blackie and the Rodeo Kings albums Kings and Kings (2017) and Kings and Queens (2011). Country music can be a small world. Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, whose music is often labeled roots in Canada and Americana in the US, is becoming increasingly renowned.
