Alison Hogan is a veteran west coast singer/songwriter who started out in Vancouver clubs and coffeehouses in the 1970s. As part of the gypsy-jazz quartet The Kitsilano Kat Kickers (aka Mystery Pacific), she played the first years of the Vancouver Folk Festival before going on to record her original material. Alison’s 2018 album Songs From the Third Act showcases the varied genres of Alison’s writing. Described by one reviewer as “a stunning, sad, funny, sexy and lovely collection of songs”. Her live performances showcase her love of classic country, blues and roots music, delivered with a wry sense of humour and some intricate acoustic guitar work.
Leonard, Burns & Dell (Sue Leonard, Brennagh Burns, and Cindy Dell) are a powerhouse harmony trio based out of Hamilton singing sultry blues and roots.

Comments Off on Featured Post: James Gordon “Emergency Climate Musical” Fri Oct 4

Friday October 4, 2019, at 8 pm. $20. Singer, songwriter, storyteller James Gordon returns with his latest project Emergency Climate Musical. Here is his plot:
Before the last federal election, songwriter/activist James Gordon barnstormed his way across the country with his hugely successful one-man show Stephen Harper: the Musical.
It worked. You’re welcome.
Now he’s back with his Emergency Climate Musical: a ninety-minute theatrical investigation of what surely is THE issue in these uncertain times. Filled with compelling songs, videos, images, stories, rants, laughter, tears, audience participation, a creepy puppet and some concrete ways to face this crisis, James promises to entertain, inform, and leave you with homework.
Follow along as he outlines his premise that we need a total political, societal and economic make-over to face the incredible challenge ahead. This time he’s got the cred for the job: James moonlights as a Guelph City Councillor, where he’s introduced climate change motions, and he’s a member of the National Climate Leadership Caucus.
