PauLakeRoadStringBandcFriday September 20 at 8 pm, cover tba: Folk-country band Paug Lake Road: Sharon Coward (lead vocals, guitar, fiddle); Katie Hurdon (backing vocals, ukulele, various rattles); Ingrid Lucy-Weinhold (banjo, backing vocals); Matt Aston (drums), and Max Ferderber (bass and swaggar). Paug Lake Road is a road that runs north of Barry’s Bay, an area dotted with lakes and full of winding roads, Dan_Belguehills, and frogs who for some reason hop wildly across the dirt roads at night. http://www.pauglakeroad.com/home.cfm
Opening set by Dan Belgue, a folk musician from the KW/Guelph area. He plays clawhammer banjo, acoustic guitar, and writes songs. Driven by solid, rythmic instrumentation and thoughtful lyrics, Dan has developed his own unique brand of acoustic ‘Canadiana’ that blends elements from a wide array of influences including folk, bluegrass, old time, and blues music. Dan plays and travels throughout Canada extensively and is a frequent collaborator with a number of musicians. He is the other half of The Blackwood Two, with fiddler and vocalist Megan McCaffrey.      http://danbelgue.ca/

Special live on-line concert: Ophelia Syndrome, Sun Sept 15, 2 pm

Comments Off on Special live on-line concert: Ophelia Syndrome, Sun Sept 15, 2 pm

OpheliaSyndrome01c_800Sunday September 15 at 2 pm. One of our favourite bands Ophelia Syndrome is planning something special. Here’s how they describe it: “an acoustic ‘esq’ performance in front of a live crowd, showcasing the new songs from our upcoming album, and discussing the ideas, meanings, and influences of the songs, for a half hour. This will also be hosted online via Stageit (an online concert platform) so that our European friends can watch along live, and can also ask questions. Which is why we will have it at 2 pm, to take into account the time difference. Then we will film the second half hour, and play more “plugged in” and make that available to stream through our partners in the 50 K Music Mag, who approached us in the first place.”

Gallery: Alicia Giansante, Olivia Rozema and Jenn Shamo, Sept 12-22

Comments Off on Gallery: Alicia Giansante, Olivia Rozema and Jenn Shamo, Sept 12-22

Olivia_Rozema_img4Alicia_Giansante_img22Artword Gallery: Sept. 12-22, 2013. “Flux”, a group exhibition by Alicia Giansante, Olivia Rozema and Jenn Shamo, all currently completing a degree in Studio Art at McMaster University. The artists will be present during Friday Sept 13 Art Crawl and Saturday Sept 14 Supercrawl. (The Gallery is open when Artword Artbar is open.)
The exhibition includes work by each artist that emphasizes a continued flow, an essential continuance or cycle. Though they use various materials, each artist is concerned with determining the essence of their subject and making it resonate beyond its physical form.
Jenn_Shamo_img9Alicia Giansante, in a series of sculptural mixed media and found art, examines escapism and a suspended moment in time. She draws upon a never-ending stream of consciousness manifested in an iconic falling figure. Olivia Rozema is a sculpture artist who uses found items of both natural and manmade origins; manipulating their forms to reference the womb and the regenerative qualities of the natural world. She seeks to give the human body spiritual agency in the context of the Earth’s natural cycles. Jenn Shamo uses drawing mediums and collage combined three-dimensionally to explore diaristic concepts with improvisational and spontaneous processes. Her organic lines and forms defy special boundaries, recalling continuous and swelling growth.
