TWIN KENNEDY – Contemporary Country with a Celtic Twist
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

DEBRA SAVOY – Spiritual Medium
Aug 26 @ 7:00 pm

CANADIAN SPIRITUAL MEDIUM DEBRA SAVOY

“Debra Savoy comes from a long line of Spiritual Mediums. Her love for helping heal people is enhanced by her abilities to see, hear and feel Spirit. She is a proud descendant of her Acadian/Scottish/Indigenous heritage and is excited to have the opportunity to return to King’s Theatre on Saturday, August 26th at 7pm.

Debra comes from generations of healers and has a background in literature and management. After 16 years of owning her own bookstore and developing her gift as a Medium, Deb found herself in a position to either continue on with the family business or follow her inherited calling to become a Spiritual Healer and make a difference in people’s lives.

“Many people that suffer from emotional distress and anxiety without the knowledge or means to ease the pain. Debra started this business to promote the knowledge of spiritual growth, health and wellbeing to those seeking out spiritual guidance.

“There are so many things in life that can weigh on us, hold us back and keep us from living to our full potential. It is also very important to know that there are ways to overcome these things that weigh so heavily on us.

“Debra travels doing large venues, from coast to coast. She has a private practice in the 1000 Islands and her home town of Ottawa and also has a Mentorship Program to help those see their true potential in the healing world. She is also in the process of compiling her life experiences with the Spirit world in her memoirs, soon to be released.”

TOMMY’S HONOUR – Golf Tournie Special Film
Sep 5 @ 7:30 pm

King’s Film Society Special Presentation

A powerful historic drama about the world’s oldest golf tournament

Tommy’s Honour

Tuesday, Sept. 5, 7:30 pm

Set against the early days of the sport and stunning landscape of Scotland, Tommy’s Honour is based on the intimate and powerfully moving true story of the relationship between “Old” Tom Morris and “Young” Tommy Morris, the dynamic father-son team who ushered in the modern game of golf.

As their fame grew, Tom and Tommy, Scotland’s Golf Royalty, were touched by drama and personal tragedy. At first matching his father’s success, Tommy’s talent and fame grew to outshine his father’s accomplishments as founder of the Open Championship in 1860, his stellar playing record, and his reputation as the local caddie master, greenskeeper and club & ball maker.  In contrast to his public persona, Tommy’s inner turmoil ultimately led him to rebel against the aristocracy led by The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, and the parents who shunned his passionate relationship with his girlfriend-then-wife Meg Drinnen.

Historic Drama/102 min.

Rated PG

Director: Jason Connery

Cast: Peter Mullan, Jack Lowden, Ophelia Lovibond, Sam Neill

“Tommy’s Honour is a beautiful tribute to the game. I felt like we were dropped out of a time machine and given the chance ‘to feel’ what golf was like over a century and an half ago. It’s a film that takes you into the soul of the game. Remarkably well done and enjoyable on every level!”

— Bill Macatee, CBS Sports

“An engrossing and accessible celebration of the game’s modern origins, enhanced by striking locations and a standout cast, led by Scottish actors Peter Mullan and Jack Lowden.”

–The Hollywood Reporter

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.

HATFITZ & CARA

“Beautiful, raw and exciting” “

Hat Fitz is a “veteran” wild man of the blues scene in Australia.  He has a record 18 straight appearances at Byron’s East Coast Blues and Roots Festival, a record that is not likely to ever be broken, and one which bears testimony to his amazing live performances and popularity with festival goers.

Irish-born Cara Robinson draws on her soul background (she’s toured Europe and the United States with singers such as Jamiroquai and the hugely popular Corinne Bailey-Rae), and although blessed with a sensational voice she was not content to be labelled as ‘just a singer’. She has taken to drumming duties as well as washboards, flute and tin whistle, sometimes all at once.

 

“Aussie bluesman and Irish Songstress get married, form a band and make great music together. This shabby hill country blues oozes cool”.
 Guitar & Bass Magazine

“Covering a staggering array of instrumentation, the duo embellish impeccable rootsy originals & Robinson shows she can belt it out too.” Classic Rock Magazine

Classic Rock Heavy Rotation: “Friday Night” … More soulful seductive blues rock. The perfect soundtrack to a laid back Sunday afternoon.”

Get Ready To Rock “this album is a celebration of everything that is good about contemporary roots music, so forget the labels and just enjoy. *****

“Cara Robinson’s addictive voice is something that fans of roots music need in their lives” Guitarist Magazine

“With Wiley Ways, Hat Fitz and Cara Robinson have crafted as genuine a blues record as you can hope to find in this day and age – simple, powerful, full of the inherent realism we’ve come to expect from these two, a stellar effort.” Samuel J. Fell Rolling Stone

“Beautiful, raw and exciting” Jeff Lang

“A nostalgia act with a future” Classic Rock

“If these don’t move you, nothing will” Phil Jackson BITS

“Contemporary but at the same time as old as the hills” American Roots

“They pack more energy, emotion and sheer musical exuberance into one song than most manage in a whole career.” Spiral Earth, UK

“Aussie bluesman Hat Fitz and Irish-born folksinger Cara Robinson are a striking pair. He is a giant raggedy-bearded man, maybe the lost member of ZZ Top who lives deep in the woods and eats anything that moves. She is a petite blonde, who barely reaches his shoulders. He has a deep, gruff Howlin’ Wolf-esqe voice while she dances with angels in her vocal. He plays wonderful resonator guitar. Her instrument is that sweet and soulful voice. It’s all she needs…” 
Blues & Soul

WILEY WAYS by HAT FITZ & CARA voted Blues Album of The Year 2012 by the Australian Blues Awards and Spiral Earth magazine. Buy on iTunes or Bandcamp or The Planet Company (Australia)
