John McDermott

John McDermott, Sat Nov 17, 8pm    $75/90

“Legend” is not a title John McDermott would readily embrace, but his accomplishments have become legendary in recording industry lore. He calls Toronto and Boston home, but he has also found a home as an international recording star and household name – known as much for his successful musical career as for his commitment to veterans’ causes. He is a long way from the man for whom singing was a hobby just ten years ago. John was discovered quite by chance, when working as a circulation sales representative for the Toronto Sun, he belted out an impromptu rendition of “Danny Boy” at a company party. “I grew up singing, but I thought everybody grew up singing. My dad and mom introduced us to music early on, and all of the McDermott kids could unleash a verse or two of ‘Scotland the Brave’ or ‘Green Isle of Erin’ on command. My song was ‘Danny Boy,’ and I sang it with pride, because even as a kid I knew what a powerful and emotive song it was.” www.johnmcdermott.com  Presented by Meaford Hall.

The regional collection consist of a series of portraits exploring some of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s most infamous characters. This project was done in collaboration with the Niagara Historical Society, with the intent of exploring some of the town’s most colorful legends, many of whose stories are largely unknown.

In addition to MacNeill’s detailed paintings, he includes works by his 4-year-old son, Declan, who interprets the same myths and characters in a more primitive style, which highlights the point that there can be many interpretations to these legends.
