The show features Mike’s original holiday songs from his ECMA award-winning Christmas album “The Season” along with some freshly arranged traditional favourites, impromptu, disarming humour, heartwarming cheer, and holiday smiles all around.

  • In this beloved family concert, the audience embarks on a musical expedition across continents and through centuries to help a unique bird discover her very own voice. Young audiences laugh, chant and sing along with the Gimquat and her wizard guide as they explore a vast range of musical styles. With so much wonderful music to choose from, how can she ever find the song that’s meant for her? How the Gimquat Found Her Song is a heart-warming tale about the search for identity and a celebration of music in all of its forms.

It’s not Christmas until we all get together with Tomato/Tomato and Friends!

TOMATO/TOMATO’S STORY

Atlantic Canada’s most entertaining duo return with a brand new, high energy album that feels as comfortable as it does fresh – bringing the sound of vintage rock n’ roll to the fore with a barnstorming new roots / rock record.

The New Brunswick based pair have built a reputation on a live show that is as much about the musical multi-tasking and vocal excellence, as it is the relaxed, off-the-cuff banter that carries on throughout the show. This compelling mix has seen the duo build audiences and develop friendships across Canada through performances at major venues and festivals; and win over international audiences with repeat visits to Australia and the UK.

Equally well received by critics, the duo have received nominations from ECMA, Music/Musique NB, and the Canadian Folk Music Awards, winning awards for Group Recording of the Year, SOCAN Song of the Year, and a well-deserved Hardest Working Artist award!

For their fifth record, they returned to Nashville in March to record with producer, engineer, and multi-instrumentalist, Jon Estes, and an amazing group of Nashville based musicians. With most of the record complete, they returned home just in time for lockdown where they recorded their vocals and finished the record.

The release of  It’ll Come Around comes at the end of a year where the title song’s message of optimism and call to arms feel relevant and needed. The feel good, high energy vibe of the record is the perfect way to bound into a New Year.

Multi-hyphenate, multidisciplinary artist Saul Williams brings his unique dynamism to this Afrofuturist vision, a sci-fi punk musical that’s a visually wondrous amalgamation of themes, ideas, and songs. The film takes place in the hilltops of Burundi, where a group of escaped coltan miners form an anti-colonialist computer hacker collective.

From their camp in an otherworldly e-waste dump, they attempt a takeover of the authoritarian regime exploiting the region’s natural resources – and its people. When an intersex runaway and an escaped coltan miner find each other through cosmic forces, their connection sparks glitches within the greater divine circuitry.
