Classic Lightfoot Live - Featuring John Stinson

June 28, 2019

Take a trip down memory lane….with CLASSIC LIGHTFOOT LIVE!

 

The performance features John Stinson a long time Ontario musician as lead vocalist. John has been entertaining audiences around Ontario for over 30 years.  He has been widely praised for his uncanny sonic resemblance to Gord, and attention to replicating his original sound. In 2008 he began to dedicate time to recreating his favorite music in a tribute show. To me, Lightfoot’s music really does reflect what it means to be Canadian. His lyrics tell stores; his stories, our stories. They reach out and touch audiences in deeply emotional ways.” Playing 6 and 12 string guitars just like Gord, John Stinson,  backed by the CLASSIC LIGHTFOOT LIVE band, an impressive cast of musicians bring the music from the studio albums to life. Each of them has been influenced by Lightfoot’s music and the passion comes through in every performance.

Granine Ryan

June 30, 2019

 

A small farm on the outskirts of Stouffville is where Gráinne Ryan grew up and if you listen closely, you’ll detect a little piece of the once small farming community in the songs that she writes. Gráinne (pronounced Grawn-ya) is proud to say that this is where she began to cut her musical teeth and hone her craft as a singer-songwriter. Often armed with nothing but an acoustic guitar, Gráinne has managed to captivate audiences of people young and old for over 20 years with her open-hearted, relatable and memorable music. Eric Thom, Roots Music Canada had this to say her last album, Looking For Sunshine: "Reminiscent of Lucinda Williams & a slightly rebellious Mary Chapin Carpenter, Ryan’s earthy perspective goes one big step further in that her original compositions are instantly familiar-sounding, hook-laden songs that encourage you to kick up your feet and sing along"

 

Granine will be performing at 9:10 pm as a part of our Local Artist Showcase in the Marquee.
