DoucelaughJerry Doucette
May 7, Saturday

Tickets $38

Jerry Doucette's 1977 first album, "MAMA LET HIM PLAY", quickly went PLATINUM in Canada; he hit the road in the US, opening for the likes of Bob Welch, Bob Weir (of the Grateful Dead), Eddie Money, and Meat Loaf. In 1979 "THE DOUCE IS LOOSE", spawned the Canadian hit "NOBODY" and helped the album to ship gold and saw him cross the continent twice touring with the Doobie Brothers, Beach Boys and the Atlanta Rhythm Section.

Jerry is still teaching us about the PASSION of music and you can catch him with his all-star crew… Trevor Newman (bass), Marco Ibarra (drums), and Al Walker (guitar)…proving it again each time he hits the stage that he hasn't lost his edge, delivering clean melodies and slick pop each time out.

Come hear your favorite Doucette tunes including, “All I Wanna Do”, “Down the Road”, “Coming Up Roses”, “Run Buddy Run”, and of course “Mama Let Him Play”.

May 21, Saturday

Tickets $10

Pioneers of orchard rock, this new band has deep roots. Hailing from Summerland, each with their own musical story, they have come together to colour the original compositions of band leader John Rousseau. Paul Henbury’s jazz guitar and Austin Mcavany’s funk bass lock in with Scott Gamble’s faultless percussion for a night of sonic smooth.

John Rousseau is a Canadian born Guitarist/Vocalist hailing from Summerland, B.C. in the heart of the Okanagan Valley. John has spent his life on stage in many different capacities including motivational speaking, acting and music. He is an accomplished song writer with 5 full length recordings to his credit and a score of un recorded material waiting in the wings.

Guitarist Paul Henbury is a rising talent in the British Columbia music industry. Combining influences as diverse as Wes Montgomery, Eric Clapton, Jerry Garcia and Jimi Hendrix, Henbury has forged his own unique sound.

The fifth child in a family of eight, he was raised in a residential neighborhood near downtown Montreal, Quebec. Thanks to the city’s rich musical culture (as well as his older siblings’ large record collection), Paul grew up drawing from a varied musical palette.

A genreless evening of music for all.

angel2Angel Forrest
May 27, Friday

Tickets $24

Performing with two great guitar players: Denis Coulombe & Ricky Paquette

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.

altimwilliamsTim Williams & Al Lerman
May 28, Saturday

Tickets $25

“Imagine, if you can, a front porch where Robert Johnson, Hank 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.” 

AL LERMAN is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and leader of the two-time Juno Award winning (Canada's Grammy) band FATHEAD. Outside of the band, he has built a solid career touring as an acoustic solo blues/roots artist, accompanying himself on guitar and rack harmonica. He has released two critically acclaimed solo discs to date. A pro musician for over forty years, he occasionally works as a guest sideman, recording and touring with a myriad of top-notch bands.

DCTrioDevon Coyote
June 17, Friday

Tickets $14

In today’s modern music, it can be hard to find genuine, good music that speaks to a real audience. Devon Coyote’s timeless fusion of Roots, Rock and Blues does just that. Their shared passion for creating great music and a fierce determination to be heard, have led the boys to humble success in the Canadian Indie music scene.

Years ago, as a lone wolf, Devon “Coyote” Bjarnason carved a path into Western Canada’s touring circuit, winning over fans and venues with his passion, presence and strong songwriting. As his sound grew, he recruited a rock solid rhythm section by joining forces with drummer/percussionist Rod Anderson and bassist/multi-instrumentalist D’Arcy Booth.

Rather than a revolving door of hired session players, the Coyotes are a band of brothers; sharing hundreds of nights in grimy motels and long, marathon drives in rusty old vans. This offstage chemistry & camaraderie transfers to their live show for an electric and energetic experience.

June 24, Friday

Tickets $30

Séan’s love for Newfoundland and Labrador folk songs shot him to international fame as a founding member of the renowned group Great Big Sea. After millions of albums sold, countless hit songs, and record breaking tours around the world, Séan realized that his 20 years with the band had to stop. Music is meant to connect, heal, and bring happiness. While Séan was giving that to thousands of people a night he was slowly losing his own way. Instead of seeking truth he was hiding behind his music. This was unfair to both himself and his fans so he left the band and started over.

Séan’s journey to find his own peace, love, and happiness continues through his new music. “You Know I Love You” is a happy collection of songs sung by a man intent on sharing his joy directly with you.

CH2010Paul Pigat / Cousin Harley
June 30, Thursday

Tickets $25

You'd never think it to look at Paul Pigat, but behind that unassuming grin and underneath those Doc Watson glasses lurks one of the most restless, combustible musical imaginations ever crammed like so much canned heat into a single body. Blessed with a jazz man's sheen, a rockabilly heart and a hobo's soul, there aren't many genres of music that don't pull at Pigat's wayfaring imagination like a magnet. In many ways, it's a mystery why Paul Pigat isn't a household name yet. Maybe he'd be a lot easier to pin down if he wasn't so darn good at so many different things.

Joining Paul will be bassist Keith Picot & Jesse Cahill on drums.

IMG0220Tasman Jude
July 7, Thursday

Tickets $24

Far from the traditional home of reggae, at an open mic in Grande Prairie, Alberta Tasman Jude first improvised three songs. The crowd’s passionate response caught them by surprise and could not be ignored, and so a band was forged. From their inception Tasman Jude have worked hard to connect deeply and spread hope with as many people as possible, and so after only 3 months they found themselves with a committed fan base and an EP charting on iTunes. “The band has a unique relationship with our fam” explains Caleb Hart (lead vocals) “we don’t have fans; we have family. They give us so much more than we can possibly give them through music.”

Their passionate live performances and optimistic music spread like wildfire throughout Alberta and beyond. Soon after, a new single “Family” was recorded, finding a home on radio around the world and bringing in multiple songwriting awards along the way.

The band continued to earn their reputation as one of the hardest working bands in Canada touring constantly across their home country, Australia, and the Caribbean, taking their songs about love and community wherever they go.

hiresoscarportraitScott Cook
July 8, Friday

Tickets $22

Alberta, Canada's prairie balladeer Scott Cook is a tirelessly traveling DIY songwriter with heart forever on sleeve. Road-worn, painfully honest, and deeply human, his straight-talking tunes weave together folk, roots, blues, soul and country with spacious fingerstyle guitar and clawhammer banjo arrangements. Cook has been making a full-time living at music since 2007, touring extensively across Canada, the US, Europe, Asia and Australia, and is currently on tour in support of his fourth release, One More Time Around, which Canada's premier roots music magazine Penguin Eggs calls "as much a manifesto as a musical work," teeming with "wry observations and hopeful life lessons." Its opening track "Pass It Along" won the Folk and Acoustic category in the 2013 UK Songwriting Contest, with UK magazine Maverick Country naming him "one of Canada's most inspiring and imaginative storytellers".

Fellow Canadian songwriter and three-time Juno winner David Francey sums it up: "Scott Cook has distilled his travels down into songs powered by a sharp eye for imagery, a healthy dose of humanity, and that unforgettable voice, that at the same time intones the rigors of the road and the most comfortable couch you have ever slept on."
