Our Exciting 2018/2019 Season!

September 21st - " Tamarack 40th Anniversary Reunion Concert"

 

What better way to kick off our 15th Friday Folk Night season than with a reunion of one of Canada’s most popular and influential folk groups? Group founder and folk music legend James Gordon has assembled some of the longest serving members of this legendary folk group, including current member Alex Sinclair, Molly Kurvink and Shelley Coopersmith, to play their uniquely Canadian blend of traditional songs, historical original songs and lively fiddle tunes. Opening act: Celtic and East Coast duo Brown Ale.

 

October 19th - The Young ‘Uns 

  • Award Winning Vocal Trio from England!

We’ll be breaking new ground with this concert, as we proudly present our first non-Canadian feature act. The Young ‘Uns are a folk trio from England who have been making waves on both sides of the Atlantic. Back to back winners of English “Folk Group of the Year”, they are known for their amazing a cappella harmonies, brilliant songwriting, and zany stage banter. Opening act: David Storey.

 

December 7th - A Very Foggy Christmas

We are excited to be welcoming back Toronto’s finest bluegrass band “The Foggy Hogtown Boys”, a quintet featuring some of the finest and most in demand musicians in the area.

January 25th - Robbie Burns Night

Alison Lupton is one of Canada’s finest Celtic singers and flautists. She and her top notch band of musicians will be presenting a delectable blend of traditional songs, stirring originals and lively tunes featuring fiddle champion Shane Cook. No haggis, but there will be scones and shortbread on hand to enjoy in this special concert! Opening act: TBA

 

February 22nd -  Goldberg and Nash do Simon and Garfunkel

You’ll want to get your tickets early for this unique tribute concert. Eve Goldberg and Jory Nash are both popular performers and great interpreters of the music of Simon and Garfunkel (Jory even sounds like Paul Simon!). They will each perform a set of songs performed and inspired by this legendary duo, before playing a few songs together.

 

March 22nd - Delta Blues Guitar Summit

It’s blues night in Brampton, as we welcome Alfie Smith and Sean Pinchin, two of the best in this unique style of acoustic blues. They will each perform a set of their own favourite pieces before the sparks fly as they play a set together.

 

April 26th - Klezmer group The Gypsy Jive Band

We are proud to present an evening of this raucously infectious Jewish wedding dance music from Eastern Europe. The Gypsy Jive Band is one of the most popular bands in this fun genre, and will do a lively show that will get you clapping along and singing in Yiddish!  Opening act: TBA.
