CATHERINE MACLELLAN’s Tribute to Gene MacLellan
Apr 13 @ 7:30 pm

Juno-Award winner Catherine MacLellan, one of Canada’s finest and favourite singer-songwriters, brings her theatrical show If It’s Alright With You to King’s Theatre on Satruday April 13 at 7:30pm.

The show celebrates the legacy of her late father Gene MacLellan, one of the country’s most famous songwriters. Nearly 50 years ago wrote the world-wide, multi-million selling smash hits “Snowbird” and “Put Your Hand in the Hand”. From his Prince Edward Island home he penned songs that Anne Murray, Elvis Presley, Loretta Lynn, Chet Atkins, Joan Baez and Ocean turned into worldwide chart-toppers and repertoire standards. These songs propelled him to fame , and remain the gold standard for Canadian songwriting.

Catherine MacLellan’s show If It’s Alright With You is filled with stories from her father’s life, from surprising revelations to intimate descriptions of their time together. It will feature the familiar hits, as well as lesser-known and even unreleased songs she’s discovered in her family archives. “I want to share my dad’s music and it’s also an opportunity for me to get to know him better. The more I get to know his songs, the closer I feel to him” she said.

Catherine’s father died while she was still in her mid-teens in 1995. “I think really for me it was part of my journey of healing. Now that my daughter is eleven, and I’m starting to see my brother’s kids playing music and they’re even playing some of dad’s songs, I see the generational thing is really cool. I’m really proud to be walking in his footsteps. He would be happy to know that his songs continue on, being remembered and given a new spark,“ she said. “A young, regular guy, from a regular upbringing, very humble beginnings, what one guy can do.”

With her grace and charm, Catherine has captivated audiences since her 2004 solo debut. She’s capable of the deepest emotional connections through her intimate lyrics as well as easy-going and light-hearted fun.

LEAHY
Apr 16 @ 7:30 pm

https://i2.wp.com/www.aimbookingagency.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Leahy_3_2019_PHOTO-CREDIT-Clem-McIntosh.jpg?fit=1024%2C663&ssl=1Over the course of their notable career, Canadian group Leahy has secured a place as one of the country’s most highly regarded progressive folk-roots bands.  Their emergence on the Canadian music scene in the late 1990’s with their chart-topping instrumental single “Call to Dance”, introduced audiences to a new way of accessing a uniquely Canadian music genre.  The “Leahy sound” – a combination of strong stride piano, unique bass guitar and drumming styles along with driving rhythm guitar – was the foundation from which wildly talented fiddle led instrumentals and vocals were launched to mainstream music listeners.  Leahy would go on to win three Juno awards and receive countless accolades for their dynamic and powerful performances.

To date Leahy has sold more than half a million albums worldwide. They have been featured in three PBS television specials – Leahy Live in Concert, Gael Force (with the Chieftains), and Leahy Live from Gatineau, Quebec – and are the subject of an Academy Award winning documentary, The Leahys: Music Most of All.  As well as touring extensively throughout Canada, the USA and Europe in support of three acclaimed records – Leahy, Lakefield, and In All Things – the band had the enviable opportunity of opening for fellow Canadian, Shania Twain, throughout the USA, Canada and the UK on her record-breaking Come On Over tour.

Since early 2017 Leahy has been back in the studio recording new music.  The focus is on songs and the band’s original songwriting and instrumental compositions.  The result is a wide-ranging collection that reflects the individual personalities that make up Leahy.  Built on their roots and the distinctive “Leahy sound”, their new material reveals the band’s drive to continue pushing beyond its traditional footings.  It’s a powerful record that delivers a sumptuous feast of solid music, pulse-raising rhythms, compelling storytelling and infectious melodies.

On the edge of a new chapter in their career, some things don’t change – the experience.  An encounter with Leahy is inimitable. Performances are full of energy, big rich sound, poignant songs, fiery instrumentals and percussive step-dancing – all delivered with unapologetic passion! In one word – unforgettable.

The line up is….
Erin – piano, fiddle, vocals, step-dancing
Frank – drums, fiddle
Maria – guitar, mandolin, banjo, vocals, step-dancing
Siobheann – bass, vocals, fiddle, step-dancing
Julie – piano, vocals, keyboards

CHASE PADGETT’s NASHVILLE HURRICANE
May 2 @ 7:30 pm

The smash hit one-man theatrical masterpiece comes to King’s! Chase Padgett is a virtuoso musician-actor-comedian who tells the tale of a mysterious acoustic guitarist who conquered the music industry and vanished without a trace.

 

Padgett plays manager, mother, mentor, and the guitar prodigy himself. Blazing guitar work and a riveting tale about the dark side of show biz.

———————————————–

A Curious Tale of Fingerpickin’ Fury

40 years ago a mysterious acoustic guitarist appeared from nowhere, conquered the music industry, and vanished without a trace… until now.

During the course of this 75 minute one man masterpiece the audience learns about Henry Waltrip (the Nashville Hurricane) from his humble trailer park beginnings alongside his white trash mother, Brenda to the crazy gigs on the road with his blues playing mentor, Tyrone. The stories and songs unfold into hilarious rants on love and music. A one man acoustic ‘Devil Went Down to Georgia”.

Chase Padgett becomes the manager, the mother, the mentor, and the guitar prodigy himself as each one tells their side of the rise, demise, and resurrection of the best damn guitar player you’ve never heard of; the Nashville Hurricane.

“If this isn’t worth 75 minutes of your time than I don’t know what is.” – Houston Press

“Get. Tickets. Now.” – Georgia Straight

COCO LOVE ALCORN SINGING WORKSHOP
May 20 @ 7:00 pm
Come sing with Coco Love Alcorn and her bassist Connor Walsh!
For 2 hours Coco will teach songs, lead improvisation exercises, and demonstrate how non-scary and fun singing together can be! We will make some joyful noise and soulful sounds as we playfully jump into the middle of the moment together.
 
Coco’s workshops create a space safe for challenging our comfort zones and enjoying a truly connected experience. Together we will explore harmony, groove, blend and our creative sides.

“Since releasing Wonderland (fall 2016) I have had the joy of visiting and singing with dozens of choirs across Canada and beyond. It all started in the fall of 2014 when I uploaded a video to YouTube singing a song I had just written called “The River”. Within months, choirs had started singing this song and I hadn’t even stepped into the studio yet!

 

I knew that I wanted to visit and sing with as many of these choirs as possible.And so I have been, and loving every minute of it: To show up in each new town and be immediately embraced by a community of people who sing together is an incredible thing. I have always loved to sing for people, but to sing with them is an even greater joy. I have found a new passion and my new calling. If I haven’t met you yet, I would love to!” – Coco

42nd STREET – Broadway Musical
Jul 7 @ 7:00 pm

The Legendary Broadway Production in HD

One of Broadway’s most classic and beloved tales, 42nd Street, comes to the big screen in the largest ever production of the show. The musical tells the story of Peggy Sawyer, a talented young performer with stars in her eyes who gets her big break on Broadway.

Peggy arrives to New York City from her hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania and her talent catches the eye of legendary Broadway director Julian Marsh. She gets a spot in the chorus of Pretty Lady. Dorothy Brock, the classic Broadway diva and star of the show, takes a dislike to the new girl. When Dorothy is injured, Pretty Lady looks like it will have to close, unless a new girl talented enough to lead the show can be found — someone like Peggy Sawyer!

Filmed at London’s Theatre Royal the production is directed by the original author of the show, Mark Bramble. This eye-watering extravaganza is full of crowd-pleasing tap dances, popular musical theatre standards, and show-stopping ensemble production numbers.

Runtime: 2 hours 35 minutes
