Instrumental Guitar Music

Montréal Guitare TrioExternal (MG3) and California Guitar Trio (CGT) have decided to link their passion and their talent in order to create a great evening of guitar; a sextet made in Heaven. This delightful concert provides the ideal occasion for the public to see and hear the six virtuoso guitarists devoting themselves to becoming one voice. It is a meeting place for original movie soundtracks, progressive rock’n’roll, world, jazz, and traditional music… the genres and styles tangle up in arrangements created especially for this concert. The program features the music of legendary groups such as Queen, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, and Rush, some famous spaghetti western music by Sergio Leone, and several original compositions by the members of MG3 and CGT.

Folk Music

The Young NovelistsExternal are a Toronto-based band fronted by husband and wife Graydon James and Laura Spink. Since 2009 they have played stages across the U.S. and Canada, released three full-length albums, won numerous awards, and received continuous praise for their unmatched, effortless harmonies. Their last record, made us strangers, landed them a Canadian Folk Music Award for New/Emerging Artist, a nomination for Vocal Group of the Year, and reached top 20 on both !earshot and Stingray Music folk charts. With a sound that has been compared to everyone from The Band to ‘pre-weirdness’ Wilco, their personal mission is to create sad songs for happy people — whether that means a nostalgic ballad or an upbeat anthem. The Young Novelists’ ability to tell familiar stories with a modern folk edge make them, and their songs, instant classics.

Music for Very Young Audiences

Peter engages all ages with his catchy blend of bluesy folk and up-tempo, interactive, heartfelt songs. Listen for gentle messages like keeping the earth green, peace-making, and celebrating local and global community building. Peter has been performing for over 15 years and he has won many awards, including a Juno. He has opened up for like-minded conservationists and world leaders like Jane Goodall and Stephen Lewis.

Little wonder why he and his legion of fans are “Proud Like a Mountain” knowing he is out there creating music that makes a difference for all of us.

Theatre

Legendary Fringe performer Chase PadgettExternal (Six Guitars) returns to Horizon Stage with another masterful one-man play with some music mixed in. 40 years ago a mysterious acoustic guitarist appeared out of nowhere, conquered the music industry, and vanished without a trace… until now. Padgett becomes manager, mother, mentor, and the prodigy himself, as each tells their side of the rise, demise, and resurrection of the best damn guitar player you’ve never heard of: the Nashville Hurricane.

During the course of this 75 minute show the audience learns about Henry Waltrip, aka the Nashville Hurricane. From his humble trailer park beginnings alongside his white-trash mother, Brenda, to the crazy gigs on the road with his blues playing mentor, Tyrone, the stories and songs unfold into hilarious rants about love and music. A riveting tale involving the dark side of show biz, and a blazing guitar finale that will blow you away!

Tickets

$35 for adults. $30 for students and seniors 65+.
