Collette Savard & The Savants

Saturday, January 26, 2019

9pm $10

 
Fleetwood Mac and Steely Dan wander through the backwoods and get lost. After some time they find a cabin in which to take refuge.

The cabin is sparse but contains a wall of traditional instruments as well as a rock ‘n roll backline.

They sit down to play.

Occasionally they get visitors, like Patsy Cline, Tom Waits, Howlin’ Wolf, Gillian Welch, Al Green and Tom Petty but mostly they are alone together passing the time with their instruments, playing songs you’ve never heard before.

If you like that story, you might enjoy the Collette Savard Band. With her palette of acoustic folk instrument, Collette whiddles out of her imagination beautiful song gems. She brings them to you wrapped in the exciting package of her band of seasoned masters.

Russell DeCarle

Saturday, April 13, 2019

7pm doors, 8pm show $25 adv $30 door

 
Russell deCarle’s songwriting has absorbed all those influences, and he avidly listens to smooth soul singers and the men and women who made early country music so compelling. Like his previous (debut) solo album Under the Big Big Sky, there are eight original songs here, and three covers.

He surrounds himself with brilliant players, and the crew on this record is superb. Guitarist Steve Briggs is, as always, subtle, tasteful, and understated, but central to deCarle’s sound; bassist Russ Boswell is, simply, the perfect foundation. Drummers Al Cross and Jorn Anderson can be heard on different tracks, as well as singers Cindy Church, Erin Costelo, Karla Crawford and Michelle Willis. Other guests include Denis Keldie (accordion), John Sheard (piano) and Chris Whiteley (harmonica). deCarle, Briggs and L. Stu Young share production credits.

Tickets available at the Maynooth General Store, Sun Run Cafe, Guitar Nuts and Harvest Moon.

Tich Maredza Band

Saturday, May 11, 2019

9pm $10

 
Swooping down from the vast Zimbabwean plains, Tichaona Maredza, a guitar in one hand, a drum in the other and an mbira in his teeth, arrived in Toronto in 2008. Singer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, he quickly formed a group in December 2009. The Tich Maredza Band hit the circuit hard, veterans in a matter of months. Tich’s music, while rooted in Zimbabwean traditional styles, has a contemporary flair. A drummer/guitarist, Tich’s compositions have rhythmic drive, melodic intelligence, and lyrical messages of challenge, and hope. Indoors, outdoors, concert hall or dance hall, The Tich Maredza Band puts smiles on faces and feet on the floor.
