Whitehorse

Whitehorse Sat. Nov 9 8pm $45/53

Since their debut in 2011, Whitehorse has evolved from magnetic folk duo to full-blown rock band. Together, Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland’s searing Americana noir sensibility is distinguished by guitar wizardry (and instantly recognizable tone) and magnetic harmonies.  Now, the JUNO Award winning duo Whitehorse return to the early days of electric blues with The Northern South Vol. 2, the second instalment of a project that melds the grooves and melodies of the original selections with the band’s steamy, swampy, squalling approach. www.whitehorsemusic.ca Presented by Meaford Hall

Matt Mays with Skye Wallace Howl at the Night Tour

Matt Mays with Skye Wallace Howl at the Night Tour Sat Nov 2 8pm  $35.34/$46.64

After years alternating between sweaty rock shows in clubs and more organic semi-acoustic theatre gigs, JUNO winner Matt Mays is embarking on the Howl at The Night Tour this fall – bringing together both sides of the Matt Mays concert experience for the first time. Matt describes the show as “a journey through songs, old and new, an evening that will start off woody and mellow and finish electric and stormy. Without a doubt, it’ll leave everyone in the house howling at the night!” The Howl at The Night Tour follows a summer of electric shows with his full band and the acoustic Dark Promises Tour. Other recent highlights include US tour dates with The Gaslight Anthem, a set at the Outlaw Music Festival supporting Willie Nelson and Matt’s first headline concert at the legendary Massey Hall in Toronto. Special guest is Skye Wallace.  Presented by Inside the Music.
