Comments Off on Stuart Laughton’s Radio Dial, new edition, Sat June 21

Stuart_Laughton_cSaturday June 21, 2014, at 8 pm, $15. (Call 905-543-8512 or book tickets online). Stuart Laughton is back with a new edition of his Radio Dial, with Stuart Laughton on vocals, guitar, harmonica, trumpet, piano.
Guest musicians for June 21 are: Nichol Robertson, guitar; Burke Carroll, pedal steel guitar; Steve Lucas, bass; Martin Worthy, banjo/drums.
Stuart is pleased to be working with Nichol: “Nichol (http://nicholrobertson.com) is a rising star on guitar. He’s a solo artist and plays in the Devin Cuddy band (JUNO nomination this year) which opened for Blue Rodeo on a cross-Canada tour earlier this year.”
Why RADIO DIAL? Because on long car trips, Stuart scours the radio waves for interesting music, and wanted to bring a similarly eclectic presentation to the stage (think Stuart McLean’s Vinyl Café, with the speaking and musical proportions reversed). http://www.radiodial.ca/ Read more…
