Winter and Spring 2022!


Hawksley Workman with special guest Mikhail Laxton

THIS SHOW IS POSTPONED TO OCTOBER 15, 2022

 

Hawksley Workman is a JUNO Award-winning and Gold Record certified singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Since his ground-breaking self-produced indie debut For Him and The Girls (1999) through to chart-topping singles of 2020, Hawksley has careened between major label international smash hits to Canadiana soaked indie releases. Boasting a catalogue of 17 solo records, Hawksley’s genre defying style strings together folk, chart pop and irrepressible cabaret. His show-stopping vocals on songs about weather, love, heartbreak and tales of end-times have garnered him a league of devoted fans.

Performing over a thousand shows worldwide, Hawksley has headlined prestigious venues like Massey Hall and The Olympia in Paris and now makes his way to Morrisburg with his enviable catalogue of mischievous favourites, glammy stompers and heartfelt hymns to small town Canada.

Visit Hawksley's website here.

Opening this show will be Mikhail Laxton, whose debut collection Real serves as a powerful introduction to an artist poised to join the ranks of Canada’s great singer-songwriters. Drawing inspiration primarily from the power of love, Laxton delivers his message through his unforgettable voice and funky acoustic melodicism. Laxton relocated from his native Australia three years ago after establishing his reputation as a contestant on that country’s version of The Voice and now calls Ottawa home.

The Fitzgeralds

February 19, 2022 | 7 pm

The Fitzgeralds are fiddling and step dancing siblings – Tom, Kerry & Julie Fitzgerald. They were raised just outside of the Ottawa Valley where they were immersed in the rich tradition of Canadian Old Time fiddling and step dancing that evolved with the arrival of Irish, Scottish and French immigrants. Over time, they have developed their art form to include various styles of fiddle music including Celtic, jazz, bluegrass, French-Canadian, and pop, creating a groovy and catchy new sound. They have also explored other dance forms including tap and Irish. They are three-time Canadian Grandmaster Fiddle Champions and Ontario Open Step Dance Champions and their unique act is a rare combination of exceptional musicianship, incomparable step dancing, audience interaction, evident love of performing, and genuine sibling connection that resonates with audiences of all ages and sets this group apart. Visit their website here.

Whitehorse

March 5, 2022 | 7 pm

Ethereal folk. Space Cowboy twang. Psychedelic spaghetti western. Intergalactic blues grooves. Since their debut in 2011, Toronto’s Whitehorse has evolved from magnetic folk duo to full-blown rock band. In truth, Whitehorse is never fully either one or the other, but an ever-evolving creative partnership between Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet. As five consecutive JUNO nominations in four categories attest, whether it be a holiday album or reworked blues covers or pop noir album, Whitehorse rises to every challenge with guitar wizardry and magnetic harmonies.

With two releases in 2021, Strike Me Down and Modern Love, Whitehorse will be bringing both new tunes and many favourites to our Stage in March. Visit their website here.

There will be an opening act for this performance, to be announced closer to show date.

Leela Gilday

April 8, 2022 | 7 pm

CHANGE OF DATE: THIS IS A FRIDAY PERFORMANCE!

A passionate singer/songwriter and soulful performer, JUNO award winning artist Leela Gilday has a voice that comes straight from the heart. Confessing her stories to her audiences with a gutsy voice and open stage presence, Gilday weaves her experiences as a northerner, a member of the Dene nation, and a traveler into a beautiful world that transports the listener.


If you’re from the North, Leela’s music is home. If you’ve never been, it will take you there. Born and raised in the Northwest Territories, she writes about the people and the land that created her. The power in her voice conveys the depth of her feelings of love and life in a rugged environment and vibrant culture, as if it comes straight from that earth. Leela’s family is from Délįne on the shore of Great Bear Lake and her rich vocals dance across the rhythmic beats of traditional Dene drumming as smoothly as a bass line onstage the largest venues in the country.

Leela believes music has an inexplicable effect on people. It is a place where she can share light and dark and the most vulnerable moments, with a clarity and genuine purpose that reassures her listeners through every word. She is a storyteller, and through this, reflects the world onto itself. Visit Leela's website here.

There will be an opening act for this performance, to be announced closer to show date.

Shakura S'Aida

April 23, 2022 | 7 pm

 

From her beginnings as world music band Kaleefah’s lead singer, this versatile vocalist has blown audiences away with her scorching vocal style, uncanny ability to deliver powerful original songs and to get deep into the guts of the most venerable standard. Shakura S’Aida’s long-simmering career initially moved into high gear in 2008 with a triumph at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, when she earned the runner-up position, competing against more than 100 bands from more than 20 different countries. In the thirteen years since, her tour schedule has taken her to almost 30 countries.

Shakura has been consistently thrilling audiences with her powerful pipes for years and first visited our Stage seven years ago in a Christmas-themed show. She recently performed at Stone Crop Acres and for this performance she is arriving in Morrisburg with her trio and is looking forward to getting to know our audience.
