High Valley

October 31 @ 8:00PM

Tickets are $39. Member discounts are in effect.  Trent University and Fleming Students - receive a 10% discount by showing your student card!!

Brothers Brad and Curtis Rempel have been able to take their unique blend of Country and Bluegrass music with a pop flare all over North and Central America beginning in their hometown of La Crete, Alberta, Canada.  "We like to call it Pop Grass" says Curtis Rempel who plays the mandolin and sings harmonies in the band.
 
Growing up on a steady diet of music like Ricky Skaggs, The Everly Brothers and Buck Owens, Brad Rempel (lead singer and songwriter) kicked off his music career with "High Valley" at 12 years of age.
 
Most recently they've been the opening act on tours with Ricky Skaggs, Little Big Town and Alan Jackson.  Ricky Skaggs was kind enough to introduce the brothers to the folks at the Grand Ole Opry when "High Valley" made their Opry debut last January.  Billboard Magazine and Country Weekly have named them "Artists to Watch" and Entertainment Tonight debuted their video for "Love You For a Long Time."  
 
In addition to having 9 hit singles on Canadian Country radio and CMT, High Valley has enjoyed a top 5 single on SiriusXM Satellite radio.
 
The duo has received nominations at the Juno Awards and Western Canadian Music Awards. They're 10 time winners of GMA Canada's covenant awards, New Country Artist of the Year winners at Canadian Music Week and CCMA Winners of the  "Interactive Artist of the Year."
 
At every High Valley show you can expect to see brothers Curtis and Brad Rempel interacting with the fans not only before and after the show via social media, but also during the show where they've been know to bring fans right on stage.  "You can expect to hear a lot about family, farming, faith and have a whole lot of fun" says Brad Rempel regarding the High Valley concert experience

Blackie And The Rodeo Kings

November 20 @ 8:00PM

Tickets are $40.00.  Member discounts are in effect.  BLACKIE AND THE RODEO KINGS GO SOUTH
 

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.

Don't miss Blackie and the Rodeo Kings.

Michael Kaeshammer

November 27 @ 8:00PM

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.

The Barra MacNeil's "An East Coast Christmas"

December 4 @ 7:30PM

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!

Alan Doyle

January 22 @ 8:00PM

[ Tickets Available Oct 25, 2014 ]
Tickets are $55.00.  Member discounts in effect.  Alan Doyle, lead singer of Great Big Sea, is coming to Lindsay's Academy Theatre, January 22, 2015.
 
Alan left home as a teenager and moved to Newfoundland's capital, St. John's, where he honed his performing skills as a solo artist in the city's pubs, standing on miniscule stages, belting out folk songs and the classic rock for the rowdy patrons. In 1993, he joined forces with fellow pub warriors Sean McCann, Bob Hallett, and Darrell Power; and together they started Great Big Sea, in which they fused traditional Newfoundland music with their own pop sensibilities. 19 years later, the band continues to astonish crowds around the world with their energy, musical skill and an ingrained inability to take themselves too seriously. A national musical treasure for a generation, their nine albums and two DVD releases have been declared Gold or Platinum and have sold a combined 1.2 million copies in Canada.
 
When not occupied with GBS duties, Alan Doyle is much in demand as a producer, arranger and general musical catalyst, having produced albums for actor Russell Crowe and Juno Award winners The Irish Descendants, among others. He has also furnished soundtracks for the movie Young Triffie's Been Made Away With, the television series Hatching, Matching & Dispatching, and for a best-selling Nintendo DS video game. With the release of Boy On Bridge, Alan adds another dimension to his career: that of a solo artist.
