GuyDavisbyRichardDowdy2010homeGuy Davis
April 15, Wednesday

Tickets $30

We are honoured Guy Davis is coming back to the Dream stage, one of the Best…..one of the Class Acts.

His ‘all’ is the Blues. The routes, and roots, of his blues are as diverse as the music form itself. It can be soulful, moaning out a people’s cry, or playful and bouncy as a hay-ride.

Guy can tell you stories of his great-grandparents and his grandparents, they’re days as track linemen, and of their interactions with the infamous KKK. He can also tell you that as a child raised in middle-class New York suburbs, the only cotton he’s picked is his underwear up off the floor.

He's a musician, composer, actor, director, and writer. But most importantly, Guy Davis is a bluesman. The blues permeates every corner of Davis' creativity.

Throughout his career, he has dedicated himself to reviving the traditions of acoustic blues and bringing them to as many ears as possible through the material of the great blues masters, African American stories, and his own original songs, stories and performance pieces.

AngelForrestAngel Forrest
May 14, Thursday

Tickets $28

Performing with two great guitar players: Denis Coulombe & Paul Deslauriers.

With a career span of over 26 years and eight records, Canada female vocalist of the year (maple blues award), Angel Forrest sure knows how to rock the house with last spring’s latest release, "LIVE" LOVE at the Palace.

Forrest’s work gained positive attention from critics as well as fans. If her spot on tribute to Janis Joplin was a no-brainer amongst festival attendees and club’s patrons, her unique signature on blues takes us a step beyond.

A familiar face on the Canadian blues circuit; she was a remarkable fit at last year’s Toronto Blues Society’s Women Blues Review presented at Massey Hall. Other accomplishments include strong appearances at Montreal’s internationally renowned jazz festival as well as Tremblant’s Blues ten day extravaganza when she opened this year for Jarvis Church - The Soul Station.

carolyn345Carolyn Mark, Geoff Berner & Kris Demeanor
May 23, Saturday

Tickets $20

The Queen of Vancouver Island, The Whiskey Rabbi and The Jester of Mordor are together on tour for the very first time in May 2015. Three of this nation’s finest songwriters share the stage for a formidable cocktail of entertainment that is part vaudeville show, part festival workshop stage, and part longtime-friends-catching-up-and-having-a-few-drinks.

Carolyn Mark is a Juno nominated performer who will fill your heart, break it and rebuild it in a single song.  Geoff Berner is a celebrated Klezmer artist and published authour whose bold and illuminative work, in the words of poet Octavio Paz, is ‘a mirror that devours mirrors’. Kris Demeanor, Calgary’s first poet laureate (2012-14) brings the crafts of theatre and spoken word to sonic adventures that are both sublime and hilarious.

Trading songs, stories, one-liners, these three artists are above all consummate performers with an amazing catalogue of songs that will give any audience an unforgettable live music experience. It’ll be the talk around the water cooler. Do not miss it.

lionbearfoxThe Lion, The Bear & The Fox
June 6, Saturday

Tickets $18

Christopher Arruda, Cory Woodward, & Ryan McMahon are the Lion the Bear the Fox.

Their live show can best be described as a harmony-filled evening, in the vein of CSNY & Ray LaMontagne... 3 young men singing honest songs... With over three decades combined experience, the trio has produced their debut EP ‘We’d Be Good Men’. 2014 will be the year the lion the bear the fox bring their heartfelt songs and larger than life sound to the rugged Canadian terrain that continues to inspire them.

“All three artists are known for the passion they bring to their performances and the honest songs they write” says the Ladysmith Chronicle, and they have succeeded in creating gripping, dynamic songs while capturing a sincerity rarely heard this side of the 2000’s. Bridging the gap between Vancouver, where the lion and the bear dwell and Ladysmith where the fox resides is only a testament to their collective commitment of creating their brand of passionately honest songs.

TimWTim Williams
June 12, Friday

Tickets $22

"Imagine, if you can, a front porch where Robert Johnson, Hand Williams, Hula Hattie, Flaco Jimenez and Bob Marley meet often and discover just how much they have in common. Tim's music would fit right in."

Tim Williams is a blues-based singer / songwriter / multi - instrumentalist. He is a 40 year veteran of the 'Roots' music scene in North America, roots which stretch back to the coffee-house scene of his native California in the mid 60's.

Settling in Canada in 1970, Tim is a studio musician, producer, and a performer in constant demand. He has played Folk / Blues / Jazz festivals and concert halls and clubs from Halifax, to Vancouver Island, to the Yukon.

Inspired by the Hillbilly and Western Swing music he heard as a child, Tim absorbed late Fifties Rhythm & Blues and Rock & Roll, Hawaiian and Mexican music, early Sixties Folk, and Bluegrass “like a sponge” before discovering a passion for traditional blues styles which was fueled by seeing many first generation blues musicians live during the “Blues Boom” of the mid and late Sixties.”
