Here’s 2019 at Artword Artbar in review. Thanks to all the wonderful performers and audiences. The performers represented in this video are not, by any means, all! There were nights when I was just too busy to take photos.

“Tia McGraff and Tommy Parham continue proving they are one of the best creative duos working today with the release of Stubborn in My Blood (2018).” Tia and Tommy have earned a respect in the music industry and a global fan base. The duo have a gift for getting to the heart of the matter and writing relatable songs about life, love and this crazy world we live in.   www.tiamcgraff.com/

Tia McGraff is an award-winning Americana/Country singer-songwriter from Port Dover, ON. Tia’s talent has been described as “haunting and soul-gripping.” Tia’s 2015 release Crazy Beautiful, produced by Colorado native, husband and longtime collaborator Tommy Parham, immediately impressed radio programmers in the USA, Canada and Europe. Tommy, who moved to Nashville in 1998 with a staff songwriter deal in hand, soon became one of Music Row’s sought-after hit-writers, and is credited with cuts by major label artists and film placements.

Comments Off on Western Swing Band, w. Sonny Sinclair, Fri May 3

Friday May 3, 2019 at 8 pm, $10. The Western Swing Band with Sonny Sinclair guitar/ vocals; Peter Arthur bass / vocals; Doug Johnson pedal steel, Domenic Di Nino drums.

Inspired by the country swing style of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys, George Strait, The Time Jumpers and Asleep at the Wheel, this band celebrates that great tradition. From country two-step, western swing and Texas waltzes, with sweet vocal harmonies, it’s a bit like travelling back in time to the original days of western swing.
