The Juno-nominated duo of Brenley MacEachern and Lisa MacIsaac has sold-out venues across North America and Europe, had the prestigious distinction of touring with Stuart McLean’s Vinyl Cafe, and has shared stages with contemporaries such as Chantal Kreviazuk, Ron Sexsmith and The Indigo Girls. Madison Violet won the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for their track “The Ransom” from their 2009 CD No Fool for Trying and also took home the 2009 Canadian Folk Music Award for Vocal Group of the Year, and were nominated for multiple East Coast Music Awards and a 2010 JUNO Award for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year. They followed that in 2011 with the critically acclaimed CD The Good in Goodbye.
Having spent last winter in studio recording their new record, Madison Violet is hitting the road for the rest of 2014 and 2015 performing new material for fans all over Canada, Spain, UK, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. Influenced by pop, electro, disco and folk, the new songs are a fresh direction for MacIsaac and MacEachearn, they have a batch of infectious songs that will speak to new audiences while showcasing the unique voices and amazing musicianship their fan base has grown to love. Our Morrisburg audience will be amongst the first to hear Madison Violet’s new sound – we could not be more excited to have Brenley and Lisa back at our Stage to help us close out our 2014/15 Season!

Opening for Madison Violet will be Toronto roots-rocker Sam Cash. As Hawksley Workman writes: "Sam Cash's songwriting captures a youthful angst, filtered through a compassionate eye... confident, natural use of simple, eloquent language that you'd expect from someone with many more years
behind them". Visit Sam's website here.
