Four of Canada's best-known musical storytellers will join forces for a very special concert of story songs Feb. 24. Featured singers Garnet Rogers, James Gordon, Alison Lupton, and Ian Bell will be joined by David Woodhead on bass and fiddler Shane Cook at Central Presbyterian Church in Cambridge.
Garnet Rogers sings extraordinary songs about people who are not obvious heroes and of the small victories of the everyday. As memorable as his songs, his over-the-top humour and lightning-quick wit moves his audience from tears to laughter and back again.
James Gordon's name is synonymous with the stories of Canada - from Frozen in Frobisher Bay to Sweaters for Penguins, James honed his craft working with Arthur Black on CBC Radio and with the group Tamarack, and continues to paint musical portraits of the people of our land. He's a funny guy as well.
Allison Lupton from Cambridge is a multiple CFMA nominee for Traditional Singer of the Year and Vocal Group of the Year as well as Folk Music Ontario’s Songs From the Heart grand prize winner for One More Day.
Ian Bell is equally well-known as singer, storyteller and humorist. He worked regularly with the late Stuart McLean on The Vinyl Cafe, and currently writes and performs with Dan Needles, author of the popular Wingfield Farm plays. https://ianbellmusic.ca/
