James Keelaghan, called Canada's finest singer-songwriter, is poet laureate of the folk and roots music world who for 25 years has gone about his work for with a combination of passion, intent and intensity, and curiosity.
Fusing his insatiable appetite for finding the next unique storyline Keelaghan also forges his pieces with brilliantly defined craftsmanship and a monogrammed artistic vision. Armed with a songbook that has enlightened and enthralled, and been embraced, by audiences around the world, Keelaghan’s life as an artist is one that is a perpetual journey on so many levels.
Most importantly it’s a journey that has invited fans of literate and layered songwriting to be a part of his artistic expeditions, some that weave their way through marvelously etched stories of a historical nature with underlying universal themes , and others that mine the depths of the soul and the emotional trails of human relations.
Jo Kroger is a New York-
based performer who is
garnering raves for her
newly released EP,
“Troubled Night.” Said reviewer Heidi
“Jo Kroger possesses
a subtler brand of charisma not unlike a singer-
songwriter such as Beth Orton or even Joni Mitchell.
There’s a vulnerability in the performance that
exposes the strength of Kroger’s truth, a quiet
confidence that acts as a magnet drawing you in for a closer listen.”
[Note: Tickets for this show are $18 in advance
and $20 at the door.
