You won't soon forget the engaging performance of Catriona Sturton. Whether she's playing heavy on her electric guitar, blowing sweetness from her harmonica or making you laugh and then cry, you'll leave wanting to hear a little more from this troubadour who calls Ottawa home.
Eniid brings a hush to a room when she starts to sing. She brings her own loving and tender touch to some of your best-loved Joni Mitchell songs and her own songs carry her heart too. Here's another performer we're lucky to call one of Ottawa's own...even though she lives up in the hills of Wakefield.
Shows to mark on your calendar, and better purchase tickets for ahead of time...

Ron Mills: Duff Road Album Release Party at Avant Garde, 135 Besserer St, Ottawa
It's been too long a wait for this wonderful album release. Shortly after completing the album last fall, Ron had an accident in the kitchen and cut his guitar playing hand. Time has been kind and his hand has finally healed. The music is bursting to pour forth.
He's a treasure of a singer-songwriter - witty, caring and humble, and he makes GREAT music!! This show is a must on your to-do list!!
The Avant Garde is a cozy little place so best to arrive early for this one!

Luke Nicholson with Ali McCormick opening, The Black Sheep Inn, 4:20 pm
Luke brings songs his soon to be released album to share with us, Shape and Sound. You may have heard the song, All Your Dresses on the radio. It's the first single from the new album and it's getting lots of airplay. Come here what else he has in store.
Ali McCormick melts my heart and lifts me up every time I see her performing. She's got a wonderful catalogue of original songs that gets deeper all the time. A little birdie told me there might be a couple of new Ali tunes finding the light of the stage at this show, if she's had enough time away from helping with the sheep sheering that is. Come see for yourself!
