Halifax-born, Toronto-based songwriter Ria Mae hits the road with her Stars Tour in support of her highly anticipated Stars EP and new single, “Too Close”, featuring Dan Talevski.

The EP Stars serves as a follow-up to the JUNO Award nominated pop album, My Love. The EP’s first single “Bend,” released summer 2017, became an instant hit skyrocketing to the top of the CBC Radio 2 charts for four weeks.  Shortly thereafter it catapulted up the Canadian radio charts reaching Top 5 at Hot AC, Top 10 at AC, and Top 15 CHR radio.  Together with its Platinum-certified debut “Bend” and follow-up “Red Light,” My Love garnered over 12 million combined worldwide streams. The EP was produced by Adam King at Canterbury Studios in Toronto, mixed by Grammy® Award-winning Engineer Joe Visciano, and mastered by Stuart Hawkes. It features several notable collaborators including: Tegan Quin (Tegan & Sara), Joel Stouffer, Serena Ryder, and Dylan Guthro (Port Cities).

Ria’s self-titled major label debut, released in 2016, features the Platinum-selling “Clothes Off” and the anthemic “Ooh Love” (certified Gold). The critically acclaimed album garnered multiple award nominations including ‘Single of the Year’ at the 2016 JUNO Awards and ‘Best New Canadian Artist’ at the iHeart Radio MMVAs.

Ria has toured Europe with Tegan & Sara, North America with Dido, and Canada with Scott Helman.  She has performed with Elle King, Xavier Rudd, Shawn Hook, Family of the Year, Francesco Yates, Coleman Hell and more. To date, Ria’s music has been streamed over 60 million times worldwide.

The Irish Rovers – Wasn’t That A Party! 

The legendary Irish Rovers return to Harbourfront Theatre! These Kings of Celtic have been honoured as one of Ireland’s greatest exports by EPIC, the Emmigration Museum in Dublin as well as back in their hometown of Ballymena.  The Rovers recent album release “The Scottish Album – Up Among the Heather”, reflects the Scottish influence on the band’s Northern Irish roots, while their previous album “The Unicorn, the Continuing Story” gave us the long-awaited sequel to their famed Unicorn song, and a new video that answers the question, “Whatever happened to the Unicorns when the ark left them stranded on the shore?” The Unicorn – https://youtu.be/mN-uA9CiV_w

Fans should fasten their seat belts for a rollicking night of the hits, the Rovers’ latest, and lots of hilarious stories from their years on the road. The days of the long tours are finally coming to an end for these Irish lads as they are now completing one last world tour.
