Comments Off on Concert: Nonie Crete Band, Sat June 26

Nonie_Crete_Eugene_Rea.jpgNonie Crete is a musical and storytelling force to be reckoned with. From heady blues, Irish balladry, to Cajun and French Canadian hues, Nonie seamlessly traverses genre with an execution only matched by her uncanny ability to explore equally diverse lyrical themes. Whether upbeat, sorrowful, poignant or whimsical, Nonie’s songs reach into the landscape of the heart – family, community, memory, discovery, love and loss – woven together by her stunningly beautiful voice. As a singer-songwriter, she has released 7 albums to date and has 2 in the works with multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire, Eugene Rea.  www.nonie.ca www.myspace.com/noniecrete

Concert: Big Rude Jake, two shows on June 5

Comments Off on Concert: Big Rude Jake, two shows on June 5

BigRudeJake.jpgSaturday June 5 at 4 pm and 9:30 pm. Big Rude Jake is back, and you have two chances to catch this sell-out musician. Tickets $10. Reserve 905-543-8512.
Big Rude Jake has a new album and a whole new look on life.  Big Rude Jake’s new release, Quicksand, explores contemporary twists on popular music forms from decades ago. Listeners will note a dramatic shift away from the ‘neo-swing’ style that has characterized previous Big Rude Jake recordings in favour of a more general roots-oriented singer/song-writer approach. The overall sound of Quicksand is relaxed and contemplative.  http://www.bigrudejake.ca/ Below is video from the concert by Hamilton Blues Lovers site.
