Expect some special moments- if you’re a Dylan fan, or a fan of great music, this one is not to be missed.

Jessica Rhaye and the Ramshackle Parade
Jessica Rhaye’s sixth full-length album, and first with backing band The Ramshackle Parade. This rollicking folk-rock interpretation of Dylan’s classics and hidden gems transcends the concept of a simple tribute album.

Just Like a Woman captures a hot mix of professionals – no click tracks and very few overdubs – true to the recording style of Dylan’s earlier work. With producer and multi-musician Dale Murray at the helm, it was free flow. All band members brought ideas to the floor. They imagined working in the style of Dylan in Woodstock, the days of the Basement Tapes and Big Pink, in the wake of the motorcycle crash. The result is a fun folk-rock album with psychedelic undertones, with folkie ballads, a conversation between rockabilly and swing, and engaging new interpretations of the Master’s works.

Brent Mason Band
Brent Mason is a well known, award winning songwriter and musician from Saint John, NB. He’s released 11 records and toured the UK, Canada and the US, and continues to host the longest running open mic in the Free World at O’Leary’s on Wednesday nights.
