JIM CUDDY BAND – CONSTELLATION TOUR
March 17, 2018 – 8PM
Cost $89.50 (inclusive)
For over 35 years, Jim Cuddy has written songs that have become indelible in the soundtrack of Canadian lives. With the release of his fourth solo album, Constellation, he adds eleven songs to that extraordinary songbook. As one of the founding members and creative forces behind Blue Rodeo, Cuddy has received nearly every accolade Canada can bestow upon a musician, from the Order of Canada and induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, to countless JUNO Awards and a Star on Canada’s Walk of Fame. Behind it all, is a simple devotion to his craft as a songwriter, which remains Cuddy’s tireless pursuit after more than three decades.
Constellation was recorded during the summer and fall of 2017 at Blue Rodeo’s studio, The Woodshed. As is the case with all great songwriters, Cuddy’s music has taken on deeper meaning with the passage of time, no small feat considering he has penned some of the most memorable songs in our nation’s canon. What comes across on Constellation is an emotional honesty that resonates across the album.
“We’ve all had to deal with our own bumps and bruises and scarring along the way and part of this new record is facing that reality,” he says. “But in other ways Constellation is a celebration of coming through it all and feeling grateful for these long-term relationships that have sustained us throughout our lives.”

Even in a world of musical anomalies, Ammoye is that rarest of things: a powerful female singer/songwriter in reggae, a genre that makes prevailingly male hip-hop seem wildly progressive by comparison. If Ammoye’s story started and ended there, it would be riveting. That her life and by extension, her dazzling original music and unerringly upbeat worldview is the outcome of tremendous victory over adversity makes Ammoye a performer who both inspires and entertains. “It’s imperative that feminine energy be represented in reggae,” Ammoye confirms. “We have a voice and we need to be heard just as much as males. It’s very important. The imbalance is unfortunate and I am determined to change it.” Only a fool would bet against her. Yet Ammoye — thrice nominated for a Juno Award and the winner of the 2015 Reggae Exclusive Recognition Awards who counts musical greats Ziggy Marley, Freddie McGregor, Beenie Man, Sean Paul, Sly Dunbar and Steven “Lenky” Marsden among her contemporaries — is too versatile to rest in one category. Indeed, as the singer makes clear on her extraordinary and sprawling new album, The Light which includes the thoroughly irresistible, keyboard-goosed smash “Sorry,” Ammoye is as comfortable singing dancehall, gospel, soul, and R&B as she is soaring above an ace reggae groove. Need a solid dose of sunshine and positivity? Simply look into The Light.
