 Rant Maggie Rant

Saturday, January 25th, 2020

Doors open at 6:30 PM | Show at 7:30 PM

Tickets: $30 (Regular), $10 (Student) 

Celebrate Robbie Burns with scotch tasting and an unforgettable evening of Celtic music.

Watch a Special Rant Maggie Rant Video that was shot to celebrate their 10th Anniversary in 2018. 

Rant Maggie Rant brings an arsenal of instruments, styles and substance to their shows with versatility and virtuosity. The Stratford, Ontario band's personality shines through as a collective of six very unique and different artists in their own right, the sum of which create unforgettable moments on stage. For the past 10 years this multi-award winning band has consistently roused audiences from coast to coast.  

While Rant Maggie Rant sticks close to the musical roots of Ireland and Scotland, as well as the other 5 Celtic nations and Canada's East Coast traditions, these melodies are usually supported by the band's unique fusion of hand-drumming, dub/jazz bass, soaring vocals, harmonies and folk/blues/rock guitar. Led by fiddler Lindsay Schindler, the band is supported by centre stage vocalist Glen Dias, who also plays recorder and percussion, Barry James Payne on guitars/bouzouki, Daev Clysdale on whistles and accordion, Rob Larose on percussion and Steve Clark on bass.

Traditionalists love their approach as they perform time honoured tunes, but in a new and fresh way with an energy that will make you want to dance and rediscover your roots. With the addition of some not-so-traditional instruments, the African djembe, the Middle Eastern doumbek and Peruvian cajon to compliment the percussive underpinnings driving the rhythm, guitar and bass approach from more contemporary and urban styles - folk, rock, jazz, dub and blues.  Traditional melodies, Latin and Mediterranean rhythms, heartfelt shanties, revved up tempos and unexpected time changes all collide in original and contemporary compositions, often blending together to deliver an intoxicating performance. Don't miss this band.

Whiskey Jack: The Stories & Songs of Stompin' Tom
with Special Guests Cindy Church & Sean Cullen

Saturday, May 30, 2020

Bar opens at 7:00 PM | Show begins at 8:00 PM

Tickets: $40

“Stompin’ Tom’s Canada Meets Sean Cullen’s Comedy” is a playful, funny, very musical and all Canadian show starring one of Stompin’ Tom’s favourite touring bands, Whiskey Jack. Sean and the band have presented their onstage antics numerous times over the years and will be on tour again in 2020.
Duncan Fremlin and his show “Whiskey Jack Presents Stories & Songs of Stompin’ Tom” first invited comedian, author, actor and singer Sean Cullen to join them at their very first concert in 2014. As Sean stepped onto the stage that night, he told the audience that Tom had written songs about potatoes, tomatoes and tobacco but sadly, not one about what many consider to be Canada’s national food, poutine. Within minutes and with the band providing the soundtrack, I Love Poutine was created, on stage, in front of hundreds of hungry fans. It brought the house down!

Whiskey Jack’s 25 years on stage and in the studio with Stompin’ Tom form the heart and soul of this show, now in its 7th year. Each night, Duncan and his all star musicians, including 5 time Canadian National Fiddle Champion, Randy Morrison and 2 time Juno nominee, Douglas John Cameron, captivate the fans by singing all the hits (The Hockey Song, Bud the Spud and more) and sharing stories of the private, backstage world of Stompin’ Tom. And yes, these are the outrageous tales that made him the legendary iconic hero to the entire country.

For 15 years Miss Emily has captivated listeners across Canada, the US and the United Kingdom with her unique combination of passion and talent.
