  • Music in the Forest - Rory Taillon

      SeptSeptember  20, 2019
    • Kicking off the 3rd annual Lakeland Dark Sky Celebration, with a musical performance Rory Tallion will be performing in the new Community Facility on Long Island in Sir Winston Churchill Provincial Park. 

      Doors 6:30PM, Music Starts 7:30PM, Ends 9:30PM

      Ottawa-based singer/songwriter Rory Taillon is a road warrior, touring across the country and back again. He has the soul of the East coast but the sound of the West in his songs. His latest album, ‘Only Whispers’ is the work of a one man Wintersleep, a one man Tea Party, a one man Blackie & the Rodeo Kings, with a voice to match the majesty of the Rockies. He has charted; earshot, community radio, hitting number three on the National Folk Charts - sitting next to Buffy St. Marie. But like Buffy, Rory Taillon is no coffeehouse kat seeking accolades over lattes. He is no beatless poet. He is a classically trained singer, a multi-instrumentalist and vocally can turn his hand to a variety of genres. The acoustic is for touring, there’s only so much room in a civic for gear, merch afterall and that voice, that voice needs its own tour bus. Its a band onto itself. Because Rory Taillon is not just an entertainer he is a performer. It’s just that simple, when Rory Taillon sings everything stops and when its starts again it’s all changed. It’s just that simple, like folk.

  • Music in the Forest - Chris Ronald

      OctOctober  24, 2019
    • Continuing the 'Music in the Forest' performing artists series into the fall, Chris Ronald will be performing in the new Community Facility on Long Island in Sir Winston Churchill Provincial Park. 

      Doors 6:30PM, Music Starts 7:30PM, Ends 9:30PM

      Now living in Vancouver, Canada, singer-songwriter Chris Ronald emigrated from his native England in 2002. Influenced by countless British and North American artists of the 60s onward, Ronald’s music has been described as being “on the folk side of Americana." Ronald first got hooked on songwriting at age 15 when he put to music a poem he wrote in high school, but he only started to go public in his thirties after moving to Canada and self-producing his first two albums. In a glowing review, The Georgia Straight praised Ronald’s songwriting and “beautifully clear tenor voice” and wondered “where his obvious talent has been hiding for so long.” Encouraged, Ronald went one step further on his next project hiring ace producer and multi-instrumentalist, John MacArthur Ellis. The resulting Timeline (2014) album catapulted Ronald to a new level in his career with, among other accolades, a nomination for “Songwriter of the Year” at the 2014 Canadian Folk Music Awards. Chris Ronald is an international touring artist. In live performance, he draws on his abilities as a highly skilled singer, storyteller and musician (guitar, harmonica, ukulele) to deliver a show that is captivating and unique. And in 2017, Ronald added another batch of “refreshingly original” songs to his repertoire with his latest album, Fragments, released on esteemed Canadian folk label Borealis Records.

  • Music in the Forest - Blaeser

      NovNovember  15, 2019
    • Continuing the 'Music in the Forest' performing artists series into the fall, Blaeser will be performing in the new Community Facility on Long Island in Sir Winston Churchill Provincial Park. 

      Doors 6:30PM, Music Starts 7:30PM, Ends 9:30PM

      Blending elements of percussive and fingerstyle guitar with folk rock and strong lyrical themes, Taylor Lang - aka, the Calgary-based singer-songwriter blaeser – embodies the idea that a song well-sung can captivate an audience, long after the final notes have faded. Born not quite in the middle of nowhere, Saskatchewan, but no more than a few miles away from it, he grew up on an isolated farm, with not much else to do at a young age but start playing music – first piano, then drumming, bass, and guitar. All of this shines through in his arrangements, creating melodies that are charmingly difficult to figure out or forget. Supported by a backing band to supplement his usual solo appearances, blaeser broke out strong in 2018 with an Albertan songwriting nomination and two festival slots in his home province, before wrapping up the year by finishing work on his debut album, Songs & Others Like Them. Set for release in April 2019, the album is a lyrically profound, emotionally intense journey into loss and looking back, while also maintaining a bold sense of anticipation for everything the future may hold - all coloured by the threads woven by a unique and introspective life. Within it, the stories of lives torn between past and present are those echoed all across the Canadian landscape, making each performance of them a genuine connection between a storyteller and his audience.
