PAY WHAT YOU WILL!!!

  • Vincent Lauzer, recorder

These four dynamic young performers were brought together by friendship and their common passion for the baroque repertoire.

With this program, they were nominated at the Prix Opus in the Concert of the Year – medieval, Renaissance, baroque music category. Les Songes have performed in the Clavecin en Concert and La Dauphine concert series, at the Bourgie Hall and the Chapelle historique du Bon­‐Pasteur, as well as the International Baroque Music Festival in Lamèque.

Since then, she has performed with the Portland Trinity Consort, the Orford Festival, the Ensemble Caprice, the Lamèque International Baroque Festival, Clavecin en Concert, the Ensemble Masques, Les Violons du Roy and the Quebec Opera Festival.

LYNNEA ROSE & THE MODERN GRASS – CD Launch
Nov 3 @ 7:30 pm

LYNNEA ROSE is charming her way into the hearts of folk, Celtic and country fans alike. Since the release of her debut album “Lynnea Rose” in 2013, she has graced audiences all across Canada, sharing with them her beautiful voice, heartfelt songwriting and genuine stage presence. Born and raised in Granville Beach,  Nova Scotia as an eighth generation Armstrong,  it’s easy to hear where her musical inspirations lie. Her deep connection to her Celtic heritage and East Coast is clearly evident in songs like “Fundy Shore”,  “Where I am From” and “Bad Winter”. Stylistically, Lynnea Rose has been compared to Alison Krauss and The Rankins, with her song-writing remeniscent of  Sarah Harmer and Gillian Welch.

In 2015, Lynnea Rose teamed up with award winning producers Tom Terrell (Modern Grass) and Karl Falkenham (CBC) to record her sophomore album “Rocking Chair”, which received a 2017 Music Nova Scotia Award nomination for “Americana Recording of the Year”. In June 2018,  Lynnea released a music video for “Bad Winter” which inspired an official line dance created by Trans World Dance. Both the official music video and instructional video for the line dance can be found on YouTube.
Recently returning from her very first Home Routes Tour, a series of 11 house concerts across Northern Alberta and British Columbia, Lynnea Rose is pleased to be performing back in her home town along side the incredibly talented blue grass supergroup “The Modern Grass”.

Nearly 4 years after the release of ‘City Ghosts’, THE MODERN GRASS are back on the scene with their fourth studio album, ‘Payday’. Produced by award winning duo Tom Terrell and Karl Falkenham, Payday is an homage to the simplicity and modesty of traditional music and living, Modern Grass style. This colorful and polarized collection of original and traditional songs taps into the rich vein of North American roots music, songwriting and musicianship. Payday features a special cast of guest musicians, curated not only for their sounds but for their critical places in the lineage of roots music.

Payday, as per usual for the MG, is paradoxical. Featuring Terrell’s clever and down home songwriting as well as unique renditions and twisted interpretations of folk, country, gospel, blues and old time classics. While the genre seemingly remains in flux, the MG paints a coherent, vibrant picture that is everything we’ve come to expect from the grass, and more.The latest incarnation of the Modern Grass features original members Tom Terrell, Andrew Sneddon & Adam Pye and debuts the fine banjo picking of Nova Scotia native, Ryan Dillman. With musical guests Brittany Haas, Joe Walsh, John Reischman, Donald Maclennan & Ray Legere.

  • 2014 Canadian Folk Music Awards Producer of the Year (Tom Terrell & Karl Falkenham for City Ghosts)

While her family members are distracted by their luxurious new lifestyles, she struggles with finding the confidence it takes to face her tormenting bullies at her new school. With the help of her cat, a pair of sunglasses, and an undesirable superpower, she soon discovers that she has what it takes to fight back and come to terms with her disability.

From Winnipeg, Lizzy Hoyt is an award-winning songwriter who delivers music with soaring melodies that are rooted in Celtic and folk traditions. Not only does she have a gorgeous voice, but she’s a master of the fiddle, guitar, and harp… and she step dances too!  Her Christmas concert of ancient carols brings a Celtic flavour to the season.

Lizzy Hoyt is one of Canada’s most powerful Celtic-folk artists. Known for bringing Canadian history to life with  music, her songs like “Vimy Ridge”, “White Feather”, and “New Lady on the Prairie” have garnered awards and nominations while also connecting strongly with audiences across the country.

A talented multi-instrumentalist, Lizzy toured for ten years as a side musician before pursuing her own projects. She has been praised for her mastery of the fiddle, guitar and harp by the Edmonton Journal, Calgary Herald, Penguin Eggs, Bluegrass Unlimited, Star News, and more. CBC’s Chris Della Torre calls her “a musician’s musician” and notes “fans that want their artists to play well can find that with [her]”. In addition to this praise, her voice has been described as “otherworldly”, “angelic”, “sweet”, and “pure” and as a singer, she has been recognized for her clarity and precision.

Lizzy is a full-time musician who travels and tours throughout Canada during the year with her trio. She has performed at renowned folk festivals (Edmonton Folk Festival, Montreal Folk Festival, Goderich Celtic Roots Festivals), folk clubs (Calgary Folk Club, Nickelodeon Folk Club, Northern Lights Folk Club) and through performing arts networks across the country.
