    Foxwarren with Hannah Cohen

    Foxwarren's North American tour kicks off in their hometown of Regina, Saskatchewan on May 29th at their favourite old haunt The Exchange.

    Foxwarren’s backstory reads like a page torn from the manual of rock & roll authenticity, as this group of siblings and childhood friends originally formed more than a decade ago. Growing up in scattered small towns across the Canadian prairies, Andy Shauf (guitars/keys/vocals), Dallas Bryson (guitar/vocals), and brothers Darryl Kissick (bass) and Avery Kissick (drums & percussion) eventually found themselves in Regina, Saskatchewan. The initial sessions for their self-titled debut began in the Kissicks’ parents’ farmhouse while they were away on vacation. Upon their return, Foxwarren were forced to relocate and recording resumed back in Regina in a rented house where the members lived as roommates. The band's name comes from the Kissick brothers’ family home in Foxwarren, Manitoba.

    Foxwarren has a special guest on this tour. Hannah Cohen has arrived home. From the title of her new album to the depth and beauty of the music, the Woodstock, NY-based singer-songwriter’s third album, Welcome Home, displays a new level of confidence and comfort with the many creative tools at her disposal. Cohen’s remarkably evocative voice is surrounded by dreamy, swooning incantations. With Welcome Home, “I don’t feel I have to cover up anything, or not be able to share,” Cohen says. “There’s less to interpret, I’m more visible. And as to reflecting on the past when things didn’t go well, I’ve left that behind. It was all worth it, to make my way to this point.”

    Presale is on now! If you don't have the presale password tickets will go on sale March 1st.

    Bobby Bazini with Elliot Maginot

    Having spent the last year writing all over the world from LA to London and to Berlin with celebrated songwriters the likes of Martin Terefe (Jason Mraz, James Morrison) amongst others, Bobby Bazini is back with new music and new tour dates.

    Recently winning SOCAN’s Pop Music Award (Anglophone) for his timeless “C’est La Vie” the Quebec native is currently in the studio recording his fourth album and in his own words “I can’t wait to be performing them to you for the first time very soon!”

    Celebrated ever since his first album “Better In Time” up to his most recent album “Summer Is Gone,” the tour will see Bobby perform his most well-known songs and his new material. Travelling from his home state as far west as Vancouver and far east as Europe, the globe-trotting singer-songwriter has even been invited to perform as a special guest at this year’s Zermatt Unplugged festival, a historic festival taking place underneath the famous Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps. 

    With special guest, Elliot Maginot.

    David Francey

    David Francey is a Scottish-born Canadian carpenter-turned-songwriter, who has become known as “one of Canada’s most revered folk poets and singers” (Toronto Star). Born in Ayrshire, Scotland to parents who were factory workers, he moved to Canada when he was twelve. For decades, he worked across Canada in rail yards, construction sites, and in the Yukon bush, all the while writing poetry, setting it to melodies in his head and singing it to himself as he worked.

    A truly authentic folk singer, Francey is a documentarian of the working person who never imagined earning a living from his music. But when he was in his 40s, his wife, artist Beth Girdler, encouraged him to share his songs and sing in public. The reaction was instant. His first album Torn Screen Door came out in 1999 and was a hit in Canada. Since then, he has released eleven albums, won three Juno Awards and has had his songs covered by such artists as The Del McCoury Band, The Rankin Family, James Keelaghan and Tracy Grammer.

    "David’s straightforward songs tell honest stories of real people and real places. Poetic perception and a keen eye for the heart of the matter are trademarks of the man and his music. His songs and stories are a direct connection for audiences seeking depth and meaning in the day-to-day." Shelter Valley Folk Festival

    In concert David is a singer and a storyteller. His wry humour and astute observations combined with his openhearted singing style have earned him a loyal following.
