Fortunate Ones
Saturday, October 22, 2016
7:30 P.M.
Centre Street United Church

After generating impressive momentum on his own, Newfoundland’s Andrew James O’Brien found the perfect accelerant to add to his musical fire in vocalist/instrumentalist, Catherine Allan. Together, they are the Fortunate Ones. Andrew and Catherine’s earnest blend of acoustic folk/ pop and roots has been gaining them significant critical and popular praise. Bare-bones arrangements and delicate, quietly assured harmony, make their live shows so endearing and memorable. They perform with the open-heartedness of two people that live the songs that they sing; the vulnerability and closeness between Andrew and Catherine is palpable on stage during each and every performance, in effect positioning the audience as the Fortunate Ones.

Lion Bear Fox took over 30 years to find each other, but it only took 30 days for Christopher Arruda (lion), Cory Woodward (bear) and Ryan McMahon (fox) to realize they were meant to join their voices as one. In May of 2012, the three men set out on tour together promoting their respective solo acts. Over conversations in front of campfires, during long nights in cheap hotels and in cold cabins, an unshakeable bond began to form. Something that had come together so naturally, so organically; simply had to be re-visited. A year later in 2014, the band was announced as a Peak Performance Project finalist. Fast forward to today and hundreds of concerts later and Lion Bear Fox demonstrate an uncompromising devotion to their chosen craft. A collection of intimate moments lived through audiences every night. Stompy blues, rock grooves and howling, unbridled passion can suddenly give way to hushed folk passages woven together by three whispers speaking as one.

Centre Steet United Church

Award Winning Flamenco Guitarist Eric Harper creates not only a unique sound all his own but his music is melodically entrancing, virtuosically ferocious and harmonically soul-stirring to the core. At his show, you can expect to see floor-stomping, guitar-scraping, rhythm-beating madness combined with a powerful, honey-dipped voice that will leave you touched, moved and inspired. He has four CDs that reflect his many styles: The Best of Eric Harper, A Very Timely Christmas, Rompera Madrugada and Ribeira. Eric is the winner of multiple awards including: the Yamaha Young Performing Artists Award and the Guitar Mania Contest 2014, and a finalist in the Morton Gould Composer Award and the Lennon Songwriting Competition.

Jake's Gift

Centre Street United Church

Jake’s Gift is a surprisingly funny drama that tells the story of a Canadian WW2 veteran’s reluctant return to Normandy, France, for the 60th Anniversary of D-Day. While roaming the shores of Juno Beach, Jake encounters Isabelle, a precocious ten-year-old from the local village whose inquisitive nature and charm challenge the old soldier to confront some long ignored ghosts - most notably, the wartime death of his eldest brother, Chester, a once promising young musician. At its heart, Jake’s Gift is about the legacy of remembrance and makes personal the story behind one soldier’s grave. Since 2007, Juno Productions has toured this multi-award winning play to over 200 communities across Canada including international stops in the US, UK and to Normandy, France, for the 70th Anniversary of D-Day!
