Shantero Productions presents THE BARRA MacNEILS

On The Bright Side

Tickets On Sale Friday, March 23rd!

The Barra MacNeils are touring this spring in support of their latest release On The Bright Side, an exquisite collection of everything their fans love. It’s an upbeat album, with fiddle tunes that you know will erupt into a flurry of step-dancing on stage. When Lucy sings the heart-wrenching Ribhinn Donn, whether or not you ‘have the Gaelic’, have a tissue handy. You’ll need it. The distinctive family harmonies; an array of rhythmic instruments weaving through and around various themes—some decidedly classical but then, suddenly, very traditional Cape Breton; the lads singing a cappella; a thoughtful solo gradually merging into a frenzied all-hands-on-deck medley … it exudes the passion and energy familiar to anyone who has ever experienced The Barra MacNeils stage show. For the unfamiliar, critical acclaim says it all: “a treasure of the East Coast, rich with tradition and unmatched in ensemble performance.” … “The Barra MacNeils capture the feeling of ‘close your eyes and you’re there’.” … “They play what they like and folks like what they play.” … “Moments of beauty as well as raucous memories like this can linger forever.”

As always, the five MacNeil siblings—Lucy, Boyd, Stewart, Kyle and Sheumas—combine on a vast array of instruments including accordian, guitar, piano, fiddle, bodhran, mandolin, banjo, Celtic harp, tin whistles, bouzouki, flute … underpinned by the nimble-fingered Jamie Gatti on bass. If you’ve ever been wowed by their Christmas show, be prepared to have the wow factor raised exponentially as the band is unleashed from the strictures of the season. “Nothing but dumbstruck awe.” Don’t miss On The Bright Side with The Barra MacNeils!

Reserved seating tickets for The Barra MacNeils—On The Bright Side are $57.50 (tax and facility fees included, additional on line or phone order surcharges may apply), go on sale Friday, March 23rd, and are available from the box offices listed below.

Spend a moment in his presence and you’ll know it’s a passion that runs deep. Music is in his blood. Originally from Orillia Ontario, singer songwriter Shane Cloutier first picked up a guitar at the age of 12 and never looked back. Shane started out listening to bands like Motorhead, Iron Maiden, and Ozzy Osbourne and he was hooked! Shane pursued his education in music in Toronto before finding his home in Collingwood, Ontario.

Now, with many years immersed in the business performing and writing he brings experience, soul, and a story to everything he creates. In 2012, Shane put out his first album ‘Scars’ for which he received national attention and a place on a movie soundtrack.

Shane’s latest work is a solo acoustic album. When Shane’s friend, mentor and guitar legend Frank Marino heard some of Shane’s new tracks he hired Shane to play rhythm guitar on Mahogany Rush’s future albums. Featuring the first single, “Shape of me” you won’t want to miss Shane’s new album ‘In Light.’

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.
