Nigel Wearne
Feb 9 @ 7:30 pm

Nigel Wearne is an Australian singer-songwriter, luthier, poet and gleaner. Equipped with personally handcrafted instruments, his music melds finger-style guitar, clawhammer banjo, folk and honest storytelling.

Nigel WearneGleaning diverse influence from Kelly Joe Phelps, Townes Van Zandt and Sun Kil Moon, he tells stories of forgotten rebels, wandering poets and his love of eggs.

Nigel has toured extensively throughout Australia and New Zealand and he’s performed at a long list of Australian music festivals, including the Port Fairy Folk Festival, Adelaide Fringe, Cygnet Folk Festival and Queenscliff Music Festival. He’s also shared shows with the likes of All Our Exes Live in Texas (AUS), Lindsay Lou (USA), Tennyson King (CAN), Jordie Lane (AUS) and the late great Billy Thorpe (AUS).

From stories of social justice and observation, to emotional reflection and historical tales, Nigel draws inspiration from everyday people from all walks of life. Some songs are autobiographical and personal, but many are other people’s stories. For Nigel, music is a candid, human and important messenger for stories and moments in time.

Almost a decade ago, he spent 3 months travelling across Canada from west to east. From the Rocky Mountains, to the mosaic of Montréal and back to the graffiti adorned streets of Toronto, it was a trip marked with poetic meanderings and self-discovery. By the time he got to Halifax he had a bag of new songs that became his 2012 album ‘Black Crow’. ‘Black Crow’ garnered wide critical acclaim including a 4 star review in Rolling Stone Magazine, a nomination for Best Country Album at The Age Music Victoria Awards and it debuted at #1 on the AMRAP Great Southern Charts.

In his first Canadian tour, Nigel will spend 3 weeks on the road touring his current album ‘Drawing Circles’, a solo record that’s raw, compelling and reflective. With songs born of shadows and lucid reveries, the 14-song double album explores the dark corners of creativity and the irregular swells of life. A storyteller at heart, he paints lyrical pictures with “the narrative-fuelled prose of Paul Kelly” – Beat Magazine. “One of Australia’s emerging songwriters” – Tone Deaf. “Warmth flecked with grit… beauty awaits” 4 Stars – Rolling Stone.

The BIG F’n Quiz
Feb 10 @ 2:00 pm

Who said: “Most pub quizzes are crap. Let’s not kid ourselves – no one ever learned anything useful from a pub quiz. If you want to learn something useful, ask Google or Alexa or that blowhard who sits at the bar and thinks he knows everything. And while most pub quizzes have almost no educational value whatsoever, they are, if anything, less entertaining than they are educational. They are sad and boring and dreary. They exist only so that one sad, boring, dreary person can call themselves the champion of the sad, the boring and the dreary.”

  1. Albert Einstein, blowhard physicist
  2. Henry David Thoureau, blowhard writer
  3. William Shakespeare, blowhard Elizabethan writer
  4. Doug Ford, blowhard Ontario Premier
  5. Peter Paylor, host of the BIG F’n Quiz at the Old Church Theatre

 

The BIG F’n Quiz at the Old Church Theatre is not like most pub quizzes. It is neither sad nor boring nor dreary. It’s not your grandmother’s pub quiz either (unless your grandmother was a potty-mouthed sailor). Hosted by Peter Paylor and Lisa Morris, the BIG F’n Quiz lets you compete against two highly-skilled special guest teams of non-blowhards – Rob and Sarah Skinner from Marmora and Ed Hamstra and Brian Weston from Hornchurch via Chipstead and Caterham—for the title of “Big F’n Champion”. It’s also okay just to come and watch. You’ll have fun.

S/Ain’t Valentine’s Day
Feb 14 @ 6:00 pm

Randy Stewart Live at Old Church Theatre for SAin’t Valentine’s Day.

Randy’s mantra has become familiar to music fans throughout the region: Sad Songs & Funny Songs, I DON’T PLAY LOVE SONGS. He’s done for music what Anthony Hopkins did for romantic comedy.

Now he’s got his sights set on Valentine’s Day. There will be nothing but oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide in the air when Randy takes the stage at the Old Church Theatre on behalf of the lovelorn, the lovesick and the romantically skeptical.  He’s hidden the roses, eaten the chocolates and, for good measure, he’s tied Cupid up in the shed for SAin’t Valentine’s Day, a ‘Valentine for the Rest of Us’, something to sing about – that doesn’t wear its heart on its sleeve.

SAin’t Valentine’s Day, will be presented at Old Church Theatre on Thursday, February 14 with a prix fixe dinner beginning at 6 PM – and the performance starting at 7 PM.


Get Tickets

Randy Stewart is a Canadian singer/songwriter who has been performing professionally for more than 30 years. He has been seen on television, heard on radio and recorded by the CBC. His recordings can be found in the delete bins of some of the country’s finest record stores – and his new song Buck-A-Beer is currently an internet sensation on Youtube. Originally from Northwestern Ontario, he now lives on a small farm outside Trenton Ontario.

“I’ve heard many times over the years, that Valentine’s Day isn’t necessarily a day that everyone looks forward to,” he grins. “Well maybe I’ve found my calling.”

His set list is an eclectic mix of country, folk, jazz standards and pop – along with some originals – all skillfully avoiding matters of the heart.

“There’s a lot of performers out there singing about love and relationships – I’m just not one of ‘em”.

Tickets for this one-of-a-kind evening are $10 in advance and $15 at the door.

Or, for only $20, include dinner of Old Church chili, homemade biscuits and a choice of heavenly desserts.

Doors – and dinner – start at 6 PM. Show starts at 7 PM.

Dylan Ireland
Feb 16 @ 7:30 pm

Propelled by raw lyricism and earthy production, Dylan Ireland’s debut solo album Every Other Night is a powerful statement from an artist ready to carve out new folk-rock terrain. Co-produced by Ireland and James McKenty (Blue Rodeo, Michelle McAdorey, Matthew Barber), Every Other Night’s stellar cast of contributors includes guitarists Jim Bryson and Gord Tough (Kathleen Edwards), drummer Loel Campbell (Wintersleep) and bassist Anna Ruddick (Daniel Romano, Bry Webb, Randy Bachman).


Get Tickets

Standout tracks like “Hard Enough” and “It Goes Bad” rumble with the force of Kings Of Leon and recent Springsteen, providing the foundation for Ireland’s gripping vocals. Elsewhere, the rough and ready twang of “Time And Again” and “Downtown Habit” reimagines classic Americana, much like Ryan Adams did upon leaving his band Whiskeytown. Then there are the atmospheric ballads “Behind The Scenes” and “Silver Screen,” painted with broad strokes of haunting pedal steel, which reveal the depth of Ireland’s songwriting.

The Peterborough, Ontario-based Ireland has already made his mark on the Canadian music scene through his former band Express And Company. Their 2013 album, Ontario, contained the single “Carry Me Along,” which received heavy airplay on CBC Radio 2 and 3, and helped land showcases at the Mariposa Folk Festival and the Peterborough Folk Festival—he earned the Emerging Artist Award at both—as well as South By Southwest.

Overall, Every Other Night marks a new phase in Ireland’s musical evolution, building upon his past work with a fresh and fearless songwriting approach now all his own. As Blue Rodeo’s Greg Keelor told him, why have a band when you’ve got a rock star name?

Roxanne de Bastion and Megan Palmer
Feb 23 @ 7:30 pm

Roxanne de Bastion from London, England and Nashville, Tennessee based singer-songwriter Megan Palmer are two talented singer-songwriters  teaming up for a short tour of Ontario. We are fortunate to have them stop by the Old Church Theatre.


Get Tickets

Roxanne de Bastion reminds us that great lyrics do have a place in pop music. With a nod to 1960’s psychedelia, Roxanne delivers thoughtful social and personal commentary soaked in piano and cello arrangements. Born in Berlin to a musical, bilingual family, she began composing and performing at the age of 15. Soon after, Roxanne moved to London equipped with her guitar, her songs, and a one-way ticket. She has been touring non-stop in Europe for the past ten years, recently played the Main Stage at Canterbury Folk Festival, has opened for Lucy and Martha Wainwright, Thea Gilmore, Hayes Carll, and many others, and has performed on The Acoustic Stage at The Glastonbury Music Festival!!

 

“One of the most perfect voices I have ever heard!” -Tom Whalley, BBC 6

“I was completely bowled over by Roxanne. As well as performing, she converses with the audience, charming everyone in the room. If you ever get the chance to go and see her live – definitely do!” -BBC Introducing Coventry

 

When Ohio-born Megan Palmer began writing songs in earnest somewhere around 2004, she was a violinist gigging with Ontario-based Luther Wright & the Wrongs, known for their bluegrass reworking of Pink Floyd’s “The Wall.” This exercise in genre twisting serves as well as any to hint at the range of stylistic territory spanned in Palmer’s own music, which straddles the Americana and adult alternative radio formats while drawing from an even wider-ranging palette of influences that she blurs into original hues. Her voice, attractively austere and affectation-free, is nonetheless versatile enough to suit the varied styles housing her intelligent lyrics and deft melodies.

“She expertly communicates in her songs her sense of kindness and compassion even when there’s good reason to behave otherwise. It’s not just something she says, it’s also who she is as an artist and person.” -Aaron Lee Tasjan

“She treats her words with such a welcoming tone that the listener can’t help but be drawn in like a child to the Pied Piper” -Wannabe

Surefire Sweat
Mar 2 @ 7:30 pm

Surefire Sweat, is made up of a diverse and multi-generational roster of Toronto-based artists. The music, composed by Juno-nominated drummer, Larry Graves, is original, drawing on an amalgam of Funk, Jazz, Brass Band, Blues and Afrobeat. Inventive arrangements act as a vehicle for the all-star cast of musicians to engage listeners through improvisational explorations and danceable arrangements.


Get Tickets

In this age of electronic dance music and digital wizardry, Surefire Sweat forges ahead with an old-school music-making approach. Full of memorable melodic hooks and toe-tapping rhythms, listeners are carried along by a revolving door of Toronto finest, sweating it out on drums, percussion, guitars and various horns. Sometimes we even sing. Despite being dominantly instrumental in nature, each of the group’s unique pieces is propelled by a narrative: colourful journeys that emote real time metaphors of the human condition.

The band has been active on the Toronto music scene performing at various festivals, music series and in clubs and concert venues. Currently the group is developing some new music (with support from The Canada Council for Arts and The Ontario Arts Council).

Living on a ranch in the foothills of Alberta’s Rocky Mountains, it’s inevitable there will be a strong sense of place- and the rhythms of the land when you start to make music. When the couple released their debut album, the resonances were there for all to hear. reflecting the pulse of life, lived in a territory that is both dirt-hard rugged and beautiful.

Their music is a wild ride from 40’s sounding western swing and Appalachian old-time, to cowboy blues. Simple and sweet, all of their material has a common thread that speaks of the Canadian west and on their UK release, reviews were glowing. American Roots UK saying it was “Exceptional” and Country Music People adding “There’s so much to enjoy here.” The editor of Maverick Magazine told readers “You will love this” Elmore Magazine, New York “We knew we were on to something special”

Jerry Leger
Mar 15 @ 7:30 pm

33-year old singer-songwriter Jerry Leger has received praise in Rolling Stone, Pop Matters, Globe & Mail, The Toronto Star, No Depression, Americana UK, Exclaim! and from fellow songwriters such as Ron Sexsmith and Michael Timmins (of Cowboy Junkies, who is also Leger’s producer/label head at Latent Recordings), yet he’s remained somewhat under-the-radar. I’m sure he wouldn’t mind commercial success but perhaps the career as a cult artist suits him better, as in the same fashion as songwriters like John Prine and Tom Waits. Both sold modestly but were highly-regarded artists for half of their careers before becoming musical legends; and like these writers, Leger is prolific, uncompromising and fixated on artistic success.


Get Tickets

The examples are throughout his already large and impressive body of work. Leger has toured Canada and the States multiple times and in 2018 made his European debut with two tours in support of his acclaimed double LP Nonsense and Heartache (Latent/Warner/Proper). They included dates with Trampled By Turtles, Sarah Shook & The Disarmers and the Take Root Fest, sharing the bill with artists such as Neko Case, Kurt Vile, Father John Misty, Shakey Graves, Alejandro Escovedo and more.

Tony Vani and the Holy Blues Band
Mar 31 @ 2:00 pm
Tony Vani and the Holy Blues Band @ Old Church Theatre | Quinte West | Ontario | Canada

Tony Vani has been making music in the Belleville area for decades. Folks in the music community know him as a versatile performer, cranking out blues and classic rock with the Stir, gospel blues with Tony Vani and the Holy Blues Band, solo performances and some work with slide guitarist Kenny Pauze.

TICKETS TBA



Tony is a respected singer and guitarist, but it is his harmonica playing that really grabs me by the throat with harmonica lines that seem to emanate from the depths of a troubled soul. The best description for his playing is “authentic.” I hear flashes of Charlie Musselwhite and the immortal Little Walter in some of his playing.

The Holy Blues band members consist of harmonica/vocalist Tony Vani, guitarist Matt Smith, bassist, Vitas Slapkauskas, and drummer Chris Lingard. Join them as they interpret the likes of Gospel Blues singers Fred McDowell, the Staple Singers and Reverent Gary Davis in a rootsy style that’s clearly close to their heart as well the bands R&B musical roots.

Spectrum of Valour – Art Exibit
May 8 @ 11:00 am – 6:00 pm

The paintings featured in this exhibit were created during the Spectrum of Valour program, by eight talented artists, all of whom are either veterans or currently serving members of the Royal Canadian Armed Forces (RCAF).

Spectrum of Valour is an art program designed for veterans and medically releasing RCAF members who have suffered a physical and/or psychological trauma. Designed by Edith Lepage Crete in 2016, the program aims to help the participants to adapt and transition toward their “new normal”, a different phase of their lives, and to provide new social opportunities. During the course, participants are encouraged to validate their feelings and express their emotions. Creativity is used by these individuals to help make sense of their world and engage in problem resolution at an emotional level.

The curriculum’s philosophy relies on the assumption that art can reach and touch certain aspects of the personality that would otherwise remain latent and consequently promotes overall wellness.

Designed by Edith Lepage Crete in 2016, the program aims to help the participants to adapt and transition toward their “new normal”, a different phase of their lives, and to provide new social opportunities. During the course, participants are encouraged to validate their feelings and express their emotions. Creativity is used by these individuals to help make sense of their world and engage in problem resolution at an emotional level.

The curriculum’s philosophy relies on the assumption that art can reach and touch certain aspects of the personality that would otherwise remain latent and consequently promotes overall wellness.
