Western Canadian Music Award Winners, Sweet Alibi, have been captivating audiences across Canada for the past few years. The Winnipeg-based folk/pop band infuses its signature harmonies with influences of everything from folk to country to soul, without a hint of shame. Sweet Alibi share personal experiences that are genuinely felt in song. Tom Power of CBC Radio 2 describes the band: "If Mumford and Sons and the Supremes had a love child, you would name it Sweet Alibi". The band, currently touring new material from their CFMA/WCMA nominated release We’ve Got To, grabs your heart and doesn't let go!
Sweet Alibi formed in 2009 when long-time Winnipeg friends Jessica Rae Ayre and Michelle Anderson joined forces with Winnipeg newcomer, Amber Quesnel. Jessica brought soul and blues, Amber brought folk, and Michelle brought jazz and classical influences. From the start, Sweet Alibi put a solid focus on three-part harmony and complemented that with Jessica on guitar, Amber on guitar and ukulele, and Michelle on guitar and banjo.

Opening for Sweet Alibi will be Toronto-based singer songwriter Mike Celia. Mike is a singer-songwriter who reminds us of the importance of the song. Melodic and groovy, his acoustic guitar and sand-papery voice will both charm and haunt you with his often anecdotal narratives of love, life, lessons learned and the lines we must walk. It’s a refreshing take on an old idea that music is often enough. Visit Mike's website here.

Andy McKee is among the world’s finest acoustic guitarists. His youthful energy and attention to song structure and melodic content elevates him above the rest. He entertains both the eye and the ear as he transforms the steel string guitar into a full orchestra via his use of altered tunings, tapping, partial capos, percussive hits and a signature two-handed technique. He is considered one of the originators of contemporary fingerstyle guitar.
Andy’s crossover success has helped him to achieve millions upon millions of YouTube viewers, underscoring his emergence as one of today’s most unique and influential artists. He has been featured as a cover story in both Acoustic Guitar Magazine in the U.S. and Acoustic Magazine in the UK, and is also the figurehead of the unique Guitar Masters tours. Check out his video 'Drifting', here and his website here.
Andy’s tour dates have taken him through Europe, Asia, Australia and North America and he will be making his way to Morrisburg next November. Given the interest in this show, we have already opened up individual ticket sales (please note the change of date from the originally announced date of October 8th). If you regularly buy one of our season's passes, your purchase of tickets for this show can go toward the purchase of a pass. We will co-ordinate with you once we have our full season and pass prices announced - you won't miss out on an opportunity to see all of our shows at an overall reduced price, but we do want to make sure everyone has a chance to get these tickets now before they're gone - don't miss the incredible Andy McKee, in Morrisburg, next November!
**We will be announcing soon the details of a one-hour guitar workshop Andy will do the afternoon prior to the show**
