John McDermott

John McDermott - Looking Back
Produced by: Shantero Productions

 

Now, 20 years and more than 25 albums later, John McDermott is an international recording star and household name.

In Concert, whether he is sharing the stage with a top notch group of musical friends or touring the world as part of the famed Three Irish Tenors, McDermott continues to enchant audiences with his beautiful tenor voice and sensitive renditions.  Though time and travel have introduced him to a wealth of new material and experiences, he manages to incorporate that diversity into his performances, while retaining the charm and humour that endeared him to audiences from the beginning.  For this 20th Anniversary Tour – a two decade retrospective – McDermott will highlight a variety of songs from his early recordings through his latest releases.

Derek Edwards Head Shot

Derek Edwards - Baloney
& Wine
Produced by: Shantero Productions

 

Derek Edwards - Baloney and Wine is an uproarious romp through the increasingly strange quirks of our daily routines.  It's relentless and brazen, a tightly woven running commentary about human nature ... “the thinking man's coffee break.”   In an ever more chaotic world, Edwards remains an inimitable constant, the hilarious voice of reason.  As he says, "28 years in, it's AAALLLL starting to click!"  

From Vegas to St. John’s, this Just For Laughs veteran is universally considered to be among the comic elite.  Certainly his peers think so, as evidenced by the fact that he’s a four-time nominee, and winner of Best Standup Comic - Canadian Comedy Awards, as well as a multiple Gemini nominee for Best Performance in a Comedy.  As Rick Mercer says, “Everyone knows Derek is the funniest man in Canada.”

Spamalot
Produced by: Mariposa Arts Theatre

 

This hilarious musical comedy is “lovingly ripped off” from the 1975 Monty Python and the Holy Grail.  Like the film, SPAMALOT is a highly irreverent parody of the Arthurian legend.

Stuart McLean and the Vinyl Café Christmas Show
Produced by: Don Jones Productions

 

Christmas is a time of tradition.  And it’s no different for us here at The Vinyl Café.  We celebrate by taking our show on the road and we do what everyone likes to do at Christmas – we gather together with friends to tell stories and sing songs.  This year’s Vinyl Café Christmas Concert will feature two brand new Dave and Morley stories and new music.  We know it has become a tradition for many families to attend our show each year.  We like that.  It is nice to recognize faces in all the different towns we visit.  See you in November

The Leahys - In Song
Produced by: North 28 Music

 

The Leahy siblings are shining greater light on their vocals and song-writing.  In addition to the instrumental and roots music for which their family has become known, they have been writing music and songs for as long as they can remember.  As one might expect, their songs are distinct and identifiable, their performance uplifting and full of life.  This new musical focus has been many years in the making and the time for it to be shared is now.

The Barra MacNeils - An East Coast Christmas
Produced by: Shantero Productions

 

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...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!

“one of the best five Christmas albums of all time!” -  Globe & Mail
