Promises to be a very special night of music in Glenbuchat Hall.



April 23rd_ The Dardanells

Armed with a love of jigs, reels and ballads honoured in Newfoundland and an energy found more often in 3 piece punk rock bands than 5 piece folk acts, The Dardanelles have established themselves as the leading traditional band coming out of Newfoundland. Their reverence for traditional music, as well as their unabashedly progressive approach has made for a fantastically  dynamic live show .  



May 16th_ Cahalen Morrison & Eli West

When people talk about the music of Cahalen Morrison and Eli West, terms such as gorgeous, amazing, gentle, lush, sophisticated, soulful, organic and earthy get bandied around.Probably one of the finest American Roots music acts around . A must see!



May 20th _ Ballad of Crows

Ballad of Crows formerly known as ‘As the Crow Flies' are three guys who blend great songs and exquisite melodies with honey-soaked vocal harmonies to create a sound which, although carved from the roots of traditional music, is infused with a very modern energy. Equally interested in the traditional tunes and ballads of their native Scotland as they are with the nu-grass and A...mericana movements in the United States, the trio blend these trans-Atlantic influences to great effect. Some call it ‘Celticana’; others simply call it wonderfully pure and honest acoustic music.



June 28th

Sarah Jane Scouten Band  

Sarah Jane pairs sturdy, infectious melodies with lyrics that are candid, poignant and flirtatious, and a flair for tying emotions to arresting images. Gaining inspiration from contemporary and traditional folk music with an ever-expanding collection of stringed instruments Sarah Jane Scouten writes wonderful songs that are delivered with a beautiful voice .



July 11th

Ruth Wall

Ruth Wall and Graham Fitkin will perform Graham's new score LOST for lever and wire strung harps, 1950s moog and autoharp. Fitkin Wall's intimate, rhythmic and exhilarating new show was first performed at the National Portrait Gallery in June 2013



July 23rd

The Hot Seats

With  their fiery brand on blistering Appalachian old-time mixed with left of centre bluegrass and a sprinkling of their own compositions .The Hot Seats  combine the virtuosic soloing and tightness of bluegrass, the band-driven rhythm of old time, the jerky bounce of ragtime, and the swagger of good old rock and roll .



TBA for Sept/Oct

The Wonderful  Sound of The Cinema Organ

The brainchild of guitarist James Grunwell, this fascinating eight piece consists of trumpet, sax and the standard jazz rhythm section. Two TV screens flicker black and white archive film and newsreel footage behind the band. Possessing a largely contemporary jazz sound, the addition of a violin and cello also adds a nostalgic thirties/forties vibe to their music, which is highly inventive .
