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, 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.”

June 27, Saturday

Tickets $26

When it comes to one-man bands, guitarist and singer extraordinaire Steve Hill has no limits. Throughout his lengthy and intense live shows, Hill performs standing up while singing and playing guitar, with his feet playing bass drum, snare drum, hi-hats and, with a drum stick fused to the head of his trusty guitar, any other percussion within reach. With roots in blues, rock and a little bit of country, Hill performs his original songs, blues classics and, quite often, raucous renditions of Jimi Hendrix tunes. This performance will be a Trio.

Steve was the big winner in January at the Maple Blues Awards in Toronto, winning all four awards he was nominated for “Entertainer Of The Year”, “Electric Act Of The Year”, “Album/Producer Of The Year” and “Guitarist Of The Year”.

PromoShot1Michael Kaeshammer
July 15 - 18, Wednesday - Saturday

Tickets $ 44

Michael has become part of the Dream Cafe’s summer excitement.

“Kaeshammer’s performances, on record and on stage, are an invitation to join the party. He doesn’t play at you. He plays with you.

“The boogie-woogie pianist best known as a must-see live act reaffirms his true colours here: he’s an R& B hound, particularly if there’s a New Orleans roll to the beat. We knew that, but the double-time rhythm and sassy horns of fast-and-fabulous opener Rendezvous state the case with unprecedented eloquence, while Kisses in Zanzibar lays down a slightly steadier second-line shuffle from the Crescent City. Pop often takes the centre stage, while jazz rarely gets forgotten for long, but there’s a more joyous, authoritative swing to this disc than we’ve heard on any of the pianist’s previous work. And don’t miss the gorgeous, deeply moving instrumental remake of the Impressions’ People Get Ready, one the reasons this is Kaeshammer’s best yet.” - Bernard Perusse, Montreal Gazette.

fred2Fred Eaglesmith
July 22, Wednesday

Tickets  $29

The heart of rock and roll is alive and well with Fred Eaglesmith’s 20th album, Tambourine. Fusing together all of Fred’s past influences, the result is pure rock ‘n ‘roll reminiscent of 1966.

Eaglesmith is a veteran of the music industry and at the same time is about as far away from actually participating in today’s music industry as one could be. Never operating within anyone’s boundaries, he continues to set the standard for independent artists everywhere. While blazing his own often colourful path he has avoided most of the traps and pitfalls of his peers, his career reads like a manual on how to succeed in music today without trying to fit into the traditional business models.

The Bend Bulletin praised Fred as “a singer-songwriter with a loyal fan base: a raconteur known for his funny stories and sometimes funny, sometimes poignant songs…a figure to whom ‘entertainer,’ ‘humorous’ and ‘original’ can be applied in equal measure.”

Los Angeles Times “Eaglesmith snarled out lyrics that underscore his overriding attitude that music and musicians ought to be cherished in the here-and-now and valued for the quality of their art, not the size of their bank accounts or TV ratings.”
