We have an outstanding group of musicians coming in for the last show of our Season!
Chuck Leclair is a local Cornwall lad who marries his folk sensibilities with strong lyrical messages. He has graced many stages in and around Cornwall and SD&G and his passion for writing and performing is just one side of the coin - Chuck is also an active music promoter who has organized countless festivals, shows and open mic events in the region. We are delighted to finally get him to the St. Lawrence Acoustic Stage.
Tricia Brubacher plays guitar and ukulele and has spent much of her life singing - in choirs, with her trio Calisto, in Guelph's Ondine Chorus and as a fabulous solo musician. Toronto Moon Magazine describes Tricia's voice as "tender and sweet, yet crystal clear and precise." She released her first solo EP Crimson in 2011, plays regularly in and around Elmira and Guelph and has graced the famous Blue Skies Music Festival - she's going to absolutely charm our crowd!
Also making his way to Morrisburg from Guelph, Sam Boer began his musical career in elementary school when he became enamoured with the beautiful, shrill sounds of a plastic recorder. Since then, he has begun writing introspective folk songs for guitar and piano, is a graduate of Folk Music Ontario's youth mentor program and released his first solo EP, Audible Smiles in 2012. Sam is a very fun and energetic performer, we know our crowd is going to love him.
Emma Phillips, from Fergus Ontario, is a guitar, piano and ukulele-playing powerhouse. She has been singing, writing, and performing her entire life and is another grad of FMO's youth mentor program, where one reviewer said of her performance last year: "several industry veterans were seen wiping tears of joy by the end of her set." It's no small thing to bring music industry veterans to tears! Emma is currently working on her debut EP titled All The Extremes and when not writing music, she devotes her time to musical theatre.
Mandee Woods grew up in Ottawa in a musical family and now calls Cornwall home. She's played in numerous bands since her first live performance at age twelve at Ottawa's SuperEx and is due to release her first solo EP this year. Possessed with a beautiful voice and fantastic range, she's going to impress our audience in Morrisburg just as she does everywhere she plays!
Finally, Dan Barkley is a Morrisburg native who now lives in Ottawa. He graced our Stage several years ago as the bassist for the Derek Jones band and he’s recently released his first EP of original tunes. This multi-instrumentalist has several projects on the go, including playing with the band Furious Gord. His sound ranges from country and rockabilly to the more traditional singer-songwriter and we know the hometown crowd is going to love him.
