LISA BROKOP: Legendary Ladies of Country
Aug 13 @ 7:30 pm

As a follow-up to her hit show Lisa Brokop: The Patsy Cline Project, Lisa has developed a new concert experience that country music fans will NOT want to miss!

Through hit songs and heartfelt stories, Lisa Brokop: Legendary Ladies of Country will celebrate several of the female pioneers in country music who inspired and influenced Lisa’s own career. Featuring hits from Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Barbara Mandrell, Emmylou Harris and more. Lisa Brokop’s own favorites from her award-winning albums such as Better Off Broken, Wildflower, and Take That will also be included. This musical tour tips its hat to the talented women of country.

 

It’s not often – in fact, some might say very rare – for an artist to have an enduring musical career.  In a day and age when most artists barely flicker for a moment before fading out of the spotlight, Lisa Brokop is set to celebrate 20 remarkable years of singing, songwriting and performing.

What’s the secret to her success?  “I love what I do,” says Brokop.  “Every note I sing, whether in the studio or from the stage, is true.  It hasn’t always been an easy road. There have been many curves, bumps and detours.  But really, it is the love of the music that motivates each step I take in the business. It keeps me moving forward.  And I think fans feel and appreciate that love.”

Lisa’s love affair with performing began in suburban Vancouver, British Columbia. As a baby, it was clear to her parents that she was special – She was singing before she could talk! By the age of 7, she was on stage with her musical mother and brother, performing everything from polkas to Kenny Rogers’ classics. 
By age 12, she was sitting in with other Vancouver bands, and went professional at age 15 when she joined a touring band. A year later she began a solo career and released “Daddy Sing To Me”, the first of a string of successful singles from her independent debut album My Love.

At the age of 19, Lisa landed the lead female role in the feature film Harmony Cats. The movie, in which Lisa plays a country singer who leaves home in search of a big break in Nashville, proved to be prophetic. Shortly after filming wrapped, and on the strength of her very first Nashville showcase, Lisa was signed to Capitol Records. Over the next three years, she released two critically acclaimed albums, the Canadian-certified Gold record Every Little Girls Dream and the self-titled Lisa Brokop, which garnered hits such as “Give Me a Ring Sometime,” “Take That,” “Before He Kissed Me,” and “She Can’t Save Him.” In 1995, the prestigious Academy of Country Music recognized Lisa with an award nomination for Top New Female Vocalist.

In 1998, Lisa signed with Sony Nashville/Columbia Records and released When You Get To Be You featuring the hit singles “What’s Not To Love,” “How Do I Let Go” and the top-10 smash hit “Better Off Broken.”

Now comfortably established in her adopted home of Nashville, Tennessee, she took some time away from the rigors of the road and discovered a hidden wellspring of songwriting talent, which gave her renewed self-respect, strength and determination.  The result was Undeniable, a Canadian independent album that saw Lisa recognized with a series of Canadian Country Music Awards, including two nods for Independent Song of the Year for the hits “Something Undeniable” and “I’d Like to See You Try,” and three consecutive trophy wins for Independent Female Artist of the Year.

It was during this time that Lisa really began to get noticed for her songwriting abilities. All ten songs on Undeniable were co-written by Lisa and before long other stars were recording tracks she penned, including Reba McEntire, Terri Clark and Pam Tillis.

In 2004, Lisa signed with Curb/Asylum Records and released a breathtaking collection of songs entitled Hey, Do You Know Me. From the poignant title track to classic ballads like “Just a Girl” and “Try Me Again Around Midnight,” Lisa crafted an album that she was truly proud of – a perfect combination of compelling music and gripping lyrics.

Brokop’s seventh album, Beautiful Tragedy was released in August 2008 on the independent Ellbea Records label and featured the top-20 hit “Break It”. Eleven of the album’s twelve tracks were co-written by Brokop and all tracks were produced by Brokop and her husband Paul Jefferson.  Lisa and Paul welcomed baby Ivy into their lives in August 2009.  The couple released a duo project The Jeffersons in 2011.

In 2013, Lisa returned to commercial country radio and had success with songs “Let It Burn” and “Love Me If  You Can” both of which were produced by fellow Canadian superstar Carolyn Dawn Johnson.

Ready to begin a yet another new chapter, Brokop is in the process of putting together the new musical venture, “Lisa Brokop: The Patsy Cline Project”. Lisa will be paying homage to one of country music’s greatest ladies with some of Cline’s classic hits like “Sweet Dreams” and “Walkin After Midnight” as well as some of her own material specifically written for the project.
“I’ll be coming full circle with this project”, Brokop says. ” When I first started singing, I would sing some of Patsy’s song because I didn’t have my own. They are still among some of my favorites today and I am so excited to have the opportunity to honor this amazing lady and the incredible music she gave us!”

TWIN KENNEDY
Aug 25 @ 7:30 pm

Hot contemporary Country with a Celtic twist from West Coast sisters Carli and Julie Kennedy.

Their musical bond is as strong as their small town roots. They have been making music together since they could talk. Born and raised in the small town of Powell River, Twin Kennedy grew up perfecting their sibling harmonies and dynamic live performances, while making their name known throughout their small community as a family band.

Growing up in such a musically infused family, it is no wonder that these sisters crafted their sound through a unique fusion of their background in country, folk, jazz and classical music. With years of classical training, including their Bachelors Degrees in Music Performance from the University of Victoria, the sisters have found their home in country music. With Carli on vocals and guitar, and Julie on vocals and violin, these petite powerhouses will fill your soul with joy and warmth through their seamless harmonies and heartfelt songwriting. No bond compares to that of sisters, and the same is to be said about the blend of their kindred voices.

“Two voices make one singular sensation!” Monday Magazine

With two EP’s in their back pocket as Carli & Julie Kennedy, these sisters came into 2015 making a splash in the Canadian country music scene, releasing their debut LP as Twin Kennedy, which earned them two Canadian Country Music Award nominations, a Western Canadian Music Award nomination for Producer of the Year, and two Vancouver Island Music Award wins for Song of Year and Country Recording of the Year. Produced by multiple CCMA and JUNO award winning artist George Canyon and renowned West Coast producer Graham Sharkey, It’s a Love Thing is a beautifully honest account of the ebb and flow of the navigation through love and life. From the uplifting opening track “Get Back Up Again” to the heartbreaking vulnerability of “That’s What I Should Have Said” Twin Kennedy has compiled a track listing that is self-described as a true extension of themselves. Their latest single, “Secondhand Gold” was the Grand Prize Award winner in the Country category of the 2015 John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the 2016 Lennon Award winner for Best Country Song.

“Nothing Short of Awesome!” Cashbox Magazine

Music is as inseparable from their lives as they are from each other, “Everything starts as a duo. We write together, rehearse together, live together, hang out together, tour together. So much togetherness!” And together, these sisters have commanded some of the top stages in Canada and beyond including performances at Canadian Music Week, Canada Place, Sunfest, Rockin’ River Music Festival, Vancouver Island Exhibition, the Vancouver Olympics, and the Live at Heart Festival in Sweden.

“…MAN could they play their instruments! These two are true pioneers in the folk, jazz and Celtic genres. Carli is bouncy and effortless on her acoustic while Julie works the fiddle like Jimmy Hendrix on an electric guitar.” Lithium Magazine

With ten BCCMA Award nominations since 2012, Carli and Julie have been a highly recognized duo throughout the West Coast music community. Most recently, Twin Kennedy was nominated for Roots/Canadiana Group of the Year at the 2016 BCCMAs. When they’re not touring from town to town on the Trans Canada, Twin Kennedy is often found writing and performing with Music City’s best. They currently split their time between their homes in Victoria, BC and Nashville, TN.

Now is the time for Twin Kennedy. Expanding from their West coast roots, the twins have already traveled from coast to coast, bringing It’s a Love Thing to country radio across Canada. With an album launch and two cross-country tours in the books, the past two years have seen a transformation for the Kennedy sisters. New year, new name, new album – country music has found its newest sweethearts in Twin Kennedy.

“These two girls are 100% made for the stage and made to entertain!” Nashville Music Examiner

JOEL & BILL PLASKETT – Golf Tee-Off Concert
Sep 8 @ 7:30 pm

Multiple JUNO and ECMA Award-winning artist JOEL PLASKETT returns to King’s Theatre to open the 9th Annual Tournament of King’s!

This celebrated Canadian musician has built a successful career on his own terms, whether as a rocker with his band The Emergency, or a singer-songwriter playing solo gigs. He’s built a career on touring Canada, singing unique, original tunes. And he’s a King’s Theatre audience favourite.

SOLIDARITY: The debut album from BILL AND JOEL PLASKETT

While Canadian music fans know Joel Plaskett. Multiple JUNO Award winning songwriter. Multiple times on the Polaris Music Prize Short List. Sold out clubs and concert halls from one side of the country to the other.

But in 2017 he’ll be sharing the spotlight with his earliest musical influence- his father, Bill.

The album is a powerful collection of original and traditional songs, reflecting the duo’s individual journeys and personal politics.

From the introspective opening track, Dragonfly, a song about a paranormal experience that Joel had, to On Down the River, Bill’s closing track about leaving his home in England, the album is grounded in folk music but informed by rock and roll history.

Solidarity is a surprising and unique album, full of strong guitar playing and thoughtful, accessible songs. An excellent addition to the Plaskett catalogue and hopefully the first of many for the Plasketts.

KAHA:WI DANCE THEATRE: Requickening
Sep 15 @ 7:30 pm

Provoking, conceptual and visceral Re-Quickening is a timely call for reawakening the intact feminine. Through bold imagery, sound and embodied Indigenous narratives, it is a re-affirmation of life and sovereignty of female voice and body.

Re-storying into balance Re-Quickening is a new women’s renewal ceremony. Conceived through an Indigenous creation process, it’s a spiritual resurgence, a piecing together of shards of knowledge, tipping colonialism on its head. The performance touches and moves forward through themes of dislocation from land, body and voice, the history of violence against Indigenous women since contact, residential schools, assimilative process of the Indian Act towards reclaiming women’s medicine, power and connection to land and creative force.

Re-Quickening is led by a powerhouse team of women collaborators: Santee Smith, Monique Mojica, Marina Acevedo (MX), Frances Rings (AU), Louise Potiki-Bryant (NZ), Bianca Hyslop (NZ), Nancy Wijohn (NZ) guided by the words of Leanne Simpson, Christi Belcourt, Alva Jamieson, Leigh Smith and Marie Campbell.
