Jim Cuddy

The Blue Rodeo frontman and songwriter's voluptuous voice has never sounded better. His newest album proves once again that his songwriting ranks with the best Canada has to offer and his always-engaging performances have yet to disappoint.

"If Blue Rodeo were The Beatles, Jim Cuddy, we humbly submit, would be Paul -- the slightly poppier and more accessible yin to the Lennonesque Greg Keelor's darker and more enigmatic yang." The Toronto Sun

"Cuddy proved yet again that his voice, his songwriting and his stage presence, all so generous and heart-revealing in their way, are themselves institutions of the Canadian (and Toronto) musical landscape." National Post

Why Not Theatre: A Brimful of Asha

A heartwarming tale of love, family and marriage, if Ravi's mother has any say. When Asha goes to extraordinary and unsolicited lengths to arrange a marriage, love and devotion are entertainingly put to the test. Real-life mother and son, Asha and Ravi Jain, share the stage to tell their true story of generational and cultural divides.

"Fresh, warm family drama served with samosas As it turns out, though, the samosas aren't a tasty bribe but a symbol of what is to come A Brimful of Asha proves to be a warm, fresh piece of theatre." The Globe and Mail

"Don't be fooled by their air of informality, however this is an artfully crafted piece of theatre." The Grid TO

Kira Isabella and Autumn Hill

Her charming stage presence, bubbly personality and natural talent have taken Kira Isabella from winning local singing competitions to supporting country superstar Carrie Underwood on tour.

Her first single "Love Me Like That," was a runaway hit crossing over into the Canadian Hot 100 Chart, earning her a Canadian Radio Music Award and a Canadian Country Music Award for Female Artist of the Year.

Tour mates Autumn Hill (Tareya Green and Mike Robins) worked with a who's who of top Nashville writers, carefully crafting each song with vivid imagery, catchy choruses, passionate harmonies and surprising depths from two distinct perspectives.

Danny Michel and Jeremy Fisher

With three Juno nominations, a spot on the Polaris Prize long list and 10 albums under his belt, Danny Michel is unquestionably one of the finest and most charming songwriters ever to grace the stage. His honest and thoughtful lyrics, earnest live performances and witty stage banter have earned him a devoted global fan base.

Two-time Juno-nominee Jeremy Fisher could be considered a renaissance man, or even a modern-day folk hero. Whatever you call him, it's clear that he is bringing back the nearly forgotten art of making a great record from start to finish, and forging a career path that is built to endure.

This unique double bill will feature these great artists performing separately and collaboratively.

"Danny Michel has reached a point where his musical vocabulary is so broad, his songwriting/arranging chops so sharp, his guitar playing so distinctive and his taste for the right sonic touch so impeccable that he can do whatever he wants and make it compelling." Eye Magazine

"The Hamilton-born, Ottawa-based singer-songwriter (Fisher), continues to draw rave reviews with his catchy melodies and compelling storytelling." London Free Press
