DuffleBag Theatre in
SNOW WHITE

The Queen has always been the “fairest in the land”. Her Magic Mirror tells her so! But when the Queen hears that Snow White has surpassed her, she’s willing to do whatever it takes to get rid of her… forever! Fortunately, Snow White escapes into the Deep Dark Woods, where she chances on a tiny cottage. Little does she know that the Seven Dwarves living there will help save her! The classic story of our heroine, as she encounters hapless Huntsmen, bad apples, and little men with big hearts and short tempers, comes to life as DuffleBag helps Snow White towards her “happily ever after”!

(Suitable for younger ages.)

Honkytonk Holiday

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1ST, 7:30 PM at the Harbourfront Theatre.

REGULAR SEATS: $56.50 tax & fees included
VIP PACKAGES: $106.50 tax & fees included
30 VIP packages available. Packages include:

  • VIP seat in row C, D, or E in centre section.
  • Meet and Greet with Gord Bamford
  • Photo-op with Gord
  • Copy of Gord’s latest CD ‘Neon Smoke’
  • Gord Bamford T-Shirt

Australian-born & Alberta-raised, Gord Bamford stands as one of the most decorated artists in Canadian country music with an impressive 24 Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) awards, multi JUNO nominations and the only two-time winner out of Nashville’s Country Music Association (CMA) receiving the 2013 & 2015 CMA Global Country Artist award. But it is his distinctive sound and song-writing ability that defines Gord Bamford as one of country music’s best neotraditional artists and like so many others that have come before him; Bamford is not an overnight success. He has spent the better part of the last 20 years honing his craft, working to get where he is today.

UPDATED_Gord600x600-min

Bamford’s eighth studio album Neon Smoke was released in early 2018 and follows his Tin Roof album, winner of the 2016 CCMA ‘Album of The Year’. Tin Roof, nominated for the 2016 JUNO Country Album of The Year follows the Juno Nominated Country Junkie album and its #1 Billboard hit song ‘When Your Lips are so Close’.

The 3-time CCMA ‘Male Artist of the Year’ once again collaborates with distinguished songwriter/producer Phil O’Donnell (Blake Shelton, Tyler Farr, George Strait). “Phil and I instantly connected in the studio. Working with him really brought a fresh, new sound to this album and I’m really proud of the results,” said Gord. “Phil is truly a genius in the studio.”

Gord is a man who believes with his whole heart in giving back. The Gord Bamford Charitable Foundation has generated over $3 million since its inception in 2008 for children’s charities such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Ronald McDonald House,

Big Brothers & Big Sisters, numerous children’s hospitals across Canada and MUSICOUNTS. “Those organizations have had an impact on my life, and that’s why we do what we do. It’s always great to get out, play music, be on stage and wake up every morning loving what I do. But probably the greatest thing I get to do is interact with a lot of these children and try to make a difference in their lives. It’s hard to comprehend, but it’s an awesome thing to see a kid’s face light up who is really sick and all he wants to do is go to Disneyland. It puts it all into perspective as to why I think God put me on earth to do what I do because it’s helping other people.”

That humble, likable approach is what continues to draw legions of new fans to Gord Bamford. But it’s the music that keeps them loyal. Gord Bamford has the amazing ability to evolve, sense where his fans want to go, and take us all along with him.

With special guest Jojo Mason

JoJo’s music is about having fun, appreciating life and sharing stories. It is passionately country,
but with no fear of a deep groove, fresh lyric or original melody. He will charm you with his
personality, wow you with his beat boxing, earn your respect with his work ethic, inspire you
with his character and compassion, elicit a smile with his message but most importantly, JoJo will
sweep you off your feet with his voice. From a moonshine slinging, shower singing prairie boy to
Canada’s next country music sensation.

“The first time I heard him on the radio, I could tell he was a truly unique voice in country
music. He is an engaging, charismatic young man who has a long career ahead of him.”
– Jonathan Simkin, CEO, 604 Records

Fast forward to 2017, JoJo has 4 Top 20 singles under his belt and is on the heels of releasing his debut album on June 9th. Follow along as he reveals the track listing via a new video each week of stripped down versions of the songs.

And with special guest Jade Eagleson

Jade Eagleson has the kind of traditional sound that is the heart and soul of country music. Even at only 24-years-old, he has a unique ability to take you back in time to the glory days of Johnny Cash, George Jones and Randy Travis.

Jade was raised on his grandparents’ farm in Ontario, Canada, where he worked alongside his father tending crops and livestock. While life may have lead him off the farm for a stint here and there, it always brought him back just the same. Even these days when he’s not playing his guitar you’ll still find a shovel in his hand.

Jade has been making music most of his life but only considered country music as a career when confronted with the harsh reality of figuring out how to save the farm and keep it in the family. While he may have started playing in empty bars, he soon caught his break when he earned his way into the Emerging Artist Showcase for Canada’s largest country music festival in 2017. Jade’s sound stunned audiences and easily separated him from the pack, which saw him take home top prize. Jade was immediately signed to Universal Music Canada and has been working on his debut album.

Jimmy Rankin: Moving East Tour 2018
with special guest Ashley MacIsaac

JIMMY RANKIN FROM NASHVILLE TO NOVA SCOTIA WITH NEW ALBUM, MOVING EAST BRINGS THE PARTY TO THE KITCHEN.

opt-jimmyrankin-600x600

Now this is big news. One of the true originals in Canadian music has moved from Nashville to Nova Scotia, and is celebrating with music only he could make. Jimmy Rankin’s new Moving East is pure East Coast, a homecoming album featuring true stories, tall tales and bittersweet ballads, and the classic folk-rock sound that Rankin helped pioneer.

Just at a time when people are searching out authentic cultural voices, strong stories and well-crafted songs, Rankin has made an unapologetically East Coast folk-rock record, with a raw, unsentimental and current edge. “I’m putting the party back in the kitchen” quips Rankin.

It’s called Moving East because that’s exactly what Jimmy’s done. He’s moved back to Nova Scotia after seven years living and working in Nashville. Hooking up with fellow Nova Scotian Joel Plaskett as producer, he’s made an album appealing to young and old alike, with songs running the gamut from gritty pub tunes to soulful ballads all featuring great storytelling and fine songwriting.

One of the most famed Canadian songwriters, Jimmy Rankin wrote such classic Rankin hits as “North Country,” “You Feel The Same Way Too,” and the Juno winning single “Fare The Well Love,” voted the #1 East Coast song of all time by CBC listeners across Canada. His own hits include “Followed Her Around,” “Morning Bound Train,” and “Cool Car.” Jimmy’s the guy who wrote “Mull River Shuffle” a Cape Breton anthem with an all-ages cult following, jamming dance floors and mosh pits at parties, weddings and raves as the last big song of the night.

Says Rankin, “With Moving East, I was trying to distil the fabric of Maritime culture into a musical collection replete with life’s highs and lows, and breathe life into stories that capture a feeling, a moment in time, live off the floor and organic.” It’s an album full of classic Cape Breton storytelling, unashamedly celebrating his moving back, and making the music he loves. Now that’s a homecoming.

About Special Guest Ashley MacIsaac

Ashley MacIsaac is widely considered to be one of the most celebrated Canadian roots musicians of all time, having sold over 500,000 albums to date. Since his first album in 1992, MacIsaac has garnered international acclaim by playing the fiddle in the traditional Cape-Breton style, while adding his own spin, mixing genres and updating Celtic music to appeal to a broader spectrum of fans.
