This 5-piece band grew out of the lively music scene of the Chateauguay Valley. Centered in historic Ormstown, Quebec, the band’s first performance was at the Ormstown Branches and Roots Music Festival in the fall of 2011.  Kevin Harvey’ s rich voice and nuanced delivery covers the scope of life…. with ballads and blues-inflected originals, some swing and genial humour. Guitarist David Whyte’s guitar solos are pure grace. The Poets  will get you dancing in the hallways, laughing, and feeling those blues.  Their new Cd will be available for sale at the concert.

Singer/songwriter Terry McLeish is an Ottawa Valley icon whose songs have won international acclaim and have been recorded and performed by others.

Raised in a military family and growing up in the 60’s, Terry couldn’t help being influenced by the great songwriters of the era and as well , the often humorous trials and tribulations of those who just want to live their lives their own way.

His songs reflect those battles that include cowboys and cowgirls, hobos and misfits, small towns and folks who just can’t win for losing. Having just got off a recent two-year stint with The Stone Fence Theatre, Terry is currently performing and writing for his second album to be released in the coming year.

Accompanying Terry McLeish will be Terry Tufts, legendary Canadian songwriter, performer and guitarist. Tufts continues to wow audiences with his songs and guitar playing and has been performing with McLeish for two years.

Grant Tomkinson, bass player extraordinaire, has been making a living solely as a musician for over 30 years. Grant’s playing is in great demand by some of Ottawa’s best bands including his own outfit, The Rockerfellas.

Tickets are $20.  Doors open at 7:30pm.  Show starts at 8pm.
