Blackie And The Rodeo Kings / November 20
Seminal Canadian alt-country supergroup Blackie and the Rodeo Kings are coming to the Academy Theatre on Thursday November 20. Patron Members can purchase their tickets now. Tickets to the general public will go on sale October 16.
The fabled Canadian roots-rockers are a virtual institution in their home country, where they've been crafting bracing, catchy, personally-charged music for nearly two decades.
Fearing, Linden and Wilson were already seasoned veterans of the Canadian music scene when they first forged their collaboration in 1996 in Hamilton, Ontario. The group was initially assembled as a one-off side project to record High or Hurtin': The Songs of Willie P. Bennett, a tribute album to Canadian folk artist Bennett, whose 1978 LP Blackie and the Rodeo King inspired the combo's name.
Despite the original plan, the new unit quickly took on a life of its own, spawning such memorable albums as Kings of Love (1999), which won a Juno Award for Best Roots and Traditional Album, Bark (2003), Let's Frolic (2006), Let's Frolic Again (2007), the compilation Swinging from the Chains of Love (2009) and Kings and Queens (2011).
Meanwhile, the three songwriters have all maintained their individual careers outside of Blackie. Fearing is a widely respected solo artist, and is half of the duo Fearing and White with noted Irish artist Andy White. Wilson has worked solo, as well as leading the bands Junkhouse and Lee Harvey Osmond. Linden, who relocated to Nashville, has released several solo albums and currently plays guitar in Bob Dylan's touring band. As guitarist, songwriter and/or producer, he's also worked with the likes of The Band, Ray Bonneville, T-Bone Burnett, Bruce Cockburn, Amos Garrett, Emmylou Harris, Colin James, Keb Mo', Diana Krall, Leon Redbone, Chris Thomas King and Lucinda Williams.

Rock and Roll Heroes, Live! The Winter Dance Party of 1959 / November 26
Michael Kaeshammer / November 27
Tickets are $37.50. Member discounts in effect. Michael Kaeshammer has been called a triple-threat combo of piano virtuosity, vocal ability and charisma. The joy is obvious from the first moment Michael Kaeshammer plays with an uncanny ability to take ‘a bit of musical this’ and ‘a touch of musical that’ and create a sound that is uniquely his own. This sound is a singular brand of pop tinged jazz that owes as much to Billy Joel and Paul McCartney as to Professor Longhair and Albert Ammons on hook laden love songs like "A Little Bit Of Love". Michael is not only a gifted singer and songwriter, but a highly trained technician and interpreter and an fiery piano player. Let Micheal invite you in and take you on a musical journey.
Christmas in Nashville / November 28

The Barra MacNeil's "An East Coast Christmas" / December 4
Tickets are $50.00. The Barra MacNeils - An East Coast Christmas is a musical potpourri of traditional MacNeil family favourites gleaned from Christmas ceilidhs, midnight masses and the general festive frolic that accompanies each holiday season. With their captivating vocals, distinctive harmonies and extraordinary musicianship, The Barra MacNeils inject new life and energy into the sights and sounds of Christmas, prompting the Halifax Daily News to call them "a treasure of the East Coast, rich with tradition and unmatched in ensemble performance"; and the Globe & Mail to call the recording on which this tour is based "one of the best five Christmas albums of all time!"
The five MacNeil siblings - Lucy, Boyd, Stewart, Kyle and Sheumas - combine on a vast array of instruments including accordian, guitar, piano, fiddle, bodhran, mandolin, banjo, Celtic harp, tin whistles, bouzouki, flute ... all underpinned by the nimble-fingered Jamie Gatti on bass. The result is a sound that is unmistakably The Barra MacNeils, one moment a rousing chorus, then a hauntingly beautiful Gaelic ballad, the next a flurry of foot-stomping instrumentals, which of course pulls one then another into a step-dancing revelry. For a delightful seasonal celebration, don't miss An East Coast Christmas with the Barra MacNeils!
