Blue Rodeo - Presented by Women's Resources of Kawartha Lakes

March 22 @ 7:30PM

Tickets are NOT ON SALE UNTIL DECEMBER 1 at 10am. 

Tickets are $100.  This is a fundraiser for Women's Resources.

Blue Rodeo have been called “musical royalty in Canada”.  We can definitely agree.  Their induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 2012 and receiving the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award in 2014 is tangible proof.  But all we really need is to listen to their classic songs that have been a comfortable part of our lives since the 1980’s and we are transported to another place and time.
With Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor’s vocals as true as ever, you won’t be disappointed.
All proceeds from this exceptional performance will be supporting Women’s Resources of Kawartha Lakes, a not-for-profit, charitable organization. For 27 years, Women’s Resources has been providing programs throughout the City of Kawartha Lakes to ensure that abused women and their children can get the help they need to lead lives free of abuse and violence.  Financial support from the community helps to supplement Ministry funding.
You will want to get your tickets early for this great performance.  The Academy Theatre has a scheduled renovation in December/January reducing seating capacity from 660 to approximately 520 seats.  Tickets will be available November 6 through (presale); November 17 to 30th at Scotiabank Lindsay; Academy Theatre December 1st.


Bruce Cockburn: Bone on Bone Tour

May 4 @ 7:30PM

Tickets $60 and $50
Few recording artists are as creative and prolific as Bruce Cockburn. Since his self-titled debut in 1970, the Canadian singer-songwriter has issued a steady stream of acclaimed albums. Fall 2017 has seen the release of his 33rd album Bone on Bone.  There’s a prevalent urgency and anxious tone to much of the album, which Cockburn attributes to living in America during the Trump era. But, more than anything, Bone on Bone amounts to the deepest expression of Cockburn’s spiritual concerns to date. The 12-time Juno winner and Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductee turned away from traditional Christianity in the mid-1970s toward a quest for the more all-inclusive mysticism he documents in his memoir. And it’s that kind of spirituality that figures prominently in “Jesus Train” and “Twelve Gates to the City.” In “Looking and Waiting,” Cockburn sings of “scanning the skies for a beacon” from the divine.
Cockburn, who won the inaugural People’s Voice Award at the Folk Alliance International conference in February and was inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame in September, continues to find inspiration in the world around him and channel those ideas into songs. “My job is to try and trap the spirits of things in the scratches of pen on paper and the pulling of notes out of metal,” he once noted. More than forty years after embarking on his singer-songwriting career, Cockburn keeps kicking at the darkness so that it might bleed daylight.
