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!

“Forget Cancer – a fundraising concert for the Canadian Cancer Society”

To be able to “Forget Cancer” ever existed is a dream we all have: to one day have the disease that affects so many eradicated by the research that is funded by donations to this worthy cause. 

Nick Imrie designed the fundraising campaign “Forget Cancer” (www.forgetcancer.ca) and inspired Triple Threat Theatre to work on the idea of a concert in the style of Triple Threat’s signature piece “Splendour of the Season”.  Together with Nick, Triple Threat Theatre has brought together many of our Community favourites who have volunteered their time to perform in the uplifting and inspiring variety show: Rick and Terri, The Odyssey Project, James Barker,  Tom Collver, Kylie McCullough, Sophia Mackey, Claire Imrie, together with dance provided by the Lindsay Dance Studio and comedy by Jeb Dexter.

All profits from ticket sales of this show will be directed to the Canadian Cancer Society.  Please see the campaign website www.forgetcancer.ca for all the details. Share, Like or even donate if you can!  Every dollar helps because….

“One thing we know for sure, everyone has been affected by cancer in some way and if it affects all of us, it will take all of us to make it stop and forget cancer ever existed.”

Alan Doyle

January 22 @ 8:00PM

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.
