We are back! Sunday June 21st will be our second show of the year and it promises to be another great evening of good music, good food and good company.
Corinna Rose & Sam Gleason, The Vaudevillian, Preetam Sengupta and Andrew Maranta will be performing. We will be squeezing in a lot of music, for what we hope to be a memorable Sunday evening! This might be a backyard show, weather permitting, so bring a blanket!
Andrew Maranta is one of the early organizers of Community Music, and has recently begun sharing more of his brilliant fingerstyle guitar arrangements with audiences around KW, Guelph and Toronto. Check him out!
Preetam Sengupta is an accomplished songwriter and a strong supporter of Canadian musicians through his company, Letting Artists Make Art (LAMA). While humbled by comparisons to Paul Simon, it is the career of folk singer-songwriter David Francey that Preetam admires most, along with the artist-industry balance of hip-hop contemporary Duane “D.O.” Gibson. Hear his music here.
The Vaudevillian are sure to shake things up. Brendan J Stephens and Willow Walker are 1920’s blues singers in the flesh. Hitchhiking between raucous house shows, rowdy bars and busking everywhere in between, they have crafted a way of singing both their own material and songs near one hundred years old in a way entirely their own. Check them out here.
Corinna Rose is back! Accompanied by Sam Gleason, also from ptarmigan (another CM favourite), this duo promises a “trippy folk” performance, with some new interpretations from Corinna’s already rich songbook. Wielding a banjo, songstress Corinna Rose will make your heart flutter and use its beat to start a hoedown. Corinna crafts songs that capture the warmth, joy and darkness of the folk tradition while unabashedly using crooked rhythms, jazz chords and orchestral overtones. Hear Corinna’s Lost Like You, here.
It all happens at 8 p.m. at 489 York Road, Guelph.
See you there!
