  • Details : Tony McManus has come to be recognised throughout the world as the leading guitarist in Celtic Music. From early childhood his twin obsessions of traditional music and acoustic guitar have worked together to produce a startlingly original approach to this ancient art. In Tony’s hands the complex ornamentation normally associated with fiddles and pipes are accurately transferred to guitar in a way that preserves the integrity and emotional impact of the music. To find a unique voice on so ubiquitous an instrument as the acoustic guitar is quite an achievement: to do so within a centuries old idiom where the instrument has no real history is truly remarkable. Over the past two decades, multiple Juno Award winning artist Steve Dawson has become an indelible fixture on the North American musical landscape. Behind his seemingly endless stream of musical output, (he has produced, or played on more than 80 albums since the turn of the millennium) resides one of the hardest working musicians the country has ever produced. A clear labour of love, it’s easy to hear the blood, sweat and tears that went into creating ‘Solid States and Loose Ends’. Filled with beautiful melodies, memorable lyrics, killer grooves and exceptional playing, the album is sure to have fans both old and new tapping their toes and humming along well after the final track has spun.

Next to Normal

  • Place : LSPU Hall
  • Time : 20:00
  • Contact : Kyle McDavid
  • Details : Best Kind Productions is thrilled to present our 2016 mainstage musical production, Next to Normal. This contemporary musical is a powerhouse that will make you cry, laugh, love, and feel. They appear to be a typical family, living in your typical suburb: Dad's an architect; Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter and son are busy, bright, wise-cracking teens. Nice kids, nice house, nice car, and yet their lives are anything but normal. Winner of three 2009 Tony Awards including Best Musical Score, and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Next to Normal takes audiences on a journey exploring the heart, the mind, the family, and the things we love. Centering around Diana Goodman, a mother who struggles with bipolar disorder, this powerful musical examines the effects her mental illness has on her family and addresses issues such as grieving, ethics and treatment in modern psychiatry, and suburban life. Recommended for ages 16+ due to language and subject matter. ----------------------------------------------------- Starring: Kelly-Ann Evans, Philip Goodridge, Erin Mackey, Tim Caudle, Paul Wilson, and Jeff Simms.
