Elbow Grease
Rod Picott - Hang Your Hopes on a Crooked Nail

“mesmerizing” - Rolling
“carefully crafted and vibrant” - American Songwriter
“seriously gifted” - No Depression

Seventeen years ago Rod Picott dropped his tool belt, picked up an acoustic guitar and released his first album Tiger Tom Dixon’s Blues. The acclaimed debut put a nail in the coffin of his construction career and ignited his second career as a singer-songwriter. With his new album, Out Past The Wires, that second career reveals itself in full flame.

The sprawling twenty-two song Out Past The Wires ranges from whispery ballads to guitar driven rockers and hits every musical spot between. Like much of Picott’s catalog, many of the songs on Out Past The Wires center around the lives of working people and the losses, defeats and small victories that can come hard won in a calloused world.

Ottawa Fringe Festival
June 14 - 24th

The Ottawa Fringe Festival provides all performing artists, both emerging and established, with the opportunity to produce their work – regardless of content, form or style – and makes the Festival as affordable and accessible as possible to the members of the community. The Ottawa Fringe Festival’s mission is to empower audiences and to encourage artists to take risks, pursue their visions and develop their skills.

An open-access festival where 100% of ticket sales go to the artists. Nobody curates the Ottawa Fringe Festival. Ottawa Fringe rents the venues and programs the festival by lottery. Every show is independently produced and more artists get into the program by submitting a Bring Your Own Venue show (BYOV).
→ Since 1997, the Ottawa Fringe Festival has returned more than $2 million to independent artists.

All venues sell tickets at the door, cash only.
Advance tickets are available online or at the box office.
Door passes (5 SHOWS – $55, 10 SHOWS – $99) are only available at the box office at Arts Court, 2 Daly Avenue, Ottawa, ON, K1N 6E2
