Greenbank
With special guest Moonfruits
We sort of found Greenbank by accident — they can’t stay away from a piano, and neither can we. We’re looking forward to having their sweet harmonies, smooth piano chops, and mellow 70s vibe in our hall. The duo, featuring Jimmy Breslin and Craig Smyth, hail from Thunder Bay.
Moonfruits, a sweet harmonizing duo from Eastern Ontario, will be opening for Greenbank. Partners on and off stage, Alex Millaire & Kaitlin Milroy are practitioners of “folk bilingue”. Their latest project, Ste-Quelquepart, (Saint Somewhere), is an elaborate fiction, telling the tales of an imaginary village in Eastern Ontario.

Betty and the Bobs
With special guest Beth Tufts
Who??? Betty and the Bobs started as a fun side project by some excellent musicians and friends who had worked together in different combinations. Many of them have also won Junos and CFMAs. These are players at the top of their game, playing for their own amusement; that the audience gets to enjoy the show is a bonus. Why did we book them? Member Suzie Vinnick is our most-requested past performer; she’ll be bringing her pals, including Katherine Wheatley, Wendell Ferguson, Soozie Schlanger, David Woodhead, Rich Greenspoon, and David Matheson. Come prepared to laugh, clap, and sing along.
Our opener for this show will be Beth Tufts, a talented young performer from Elphin, Ontario, Canada’s JUNO capital. Beth is the daughter of two musicians, and has been singing ever since she can remember. Her clarion voice is all her own, as is her talent.

David Myles
With special guest susan o
David Myles is a Halifax-based roots performer. An independent artist, he is currently touring album number 10. Myles’ work is characterized by thoughtful lyrics, sweet melodies, and a sense of fun. Genre is flexible in his hands, and he’s been called folk-jazz and nouveau pop, but we prefer to call it good music. Myles has garnered Juno awards, ECMAs, SOCAN awards, and his single, ”When I Get My Turn’, won international songwriting awards.
Our opener for this show will be susan o, an Ottawa-based singer-songwriter folk-rocker. 2017 marked her return to the Ottawa music scene after a 13 year hiatus for family and life. But her time away from music performing was rich in experience and this informs her songwriting.
