May Performances - A Video Overview

by Michael Donley

May is set to bring us some of the best shows we've had at the cafe yet! A mix of old faces, new faces, famous faces, and happy to say their feet are attached.

James Lamb kicks off the month on May 7th.  James is a storyteller with unconventional compositions and lyrics that explore the most contemporary issues in our Canadian culture, often originating in personal experiences with humanity. He was one of the first performers at the cafe in June 0f 2009 and we are happy to have him back!

We are very fortunate to have William Fitzsimmons performing May 14th. William Fitzsimmons is touring in support of his new album "Gold In The Shadow"  and is a world class performer. This show is sold out to watch in person, but you don't worry you can still watch the show FREE, streamed live online.

Saskatchewan's Andy Shauf and Toronto's Abigail Lapell bring us their music May 21st.
Andy Shauf encapsulates Western Canadian indie folk. He has incredible vocal arrangements and his song writing is beyond his years. Shauf has performed at the cafe twice before and every time it has been amazing.

Abigail Lapell from Toronto draws from a deep well of folk, indie and traditional influences. Over the past few years, Abigail has toured extensively in Ontario and Eastern Canada, been featured at NXNE, Pop Montreal, Winterfolk (Toronto), Sappy Fest (Sackville, NB) and In the Dead of Winter (Halifax).

Jess Hill from Vancouver and Halifax's Jon Bryant performs at the cafe May 28th.
Jess Hill has been featured on CBC radio, performed at The Vancouver Folk festival, Vancouver International jazz festival, Artswells and numerous other festivals in BC. She has earned the title of being a phenomenal stage performer inviting her audience to join her in her own realm.

We've had the pleasure of hosting shows with Jon Bryant twice before and in the past year has been touring relentlessly throughout North America. After a successful first year, (ECMA, Music Nova Scotia and Covenant award nominations and two cross Canada tours) 2010 proved to be the first step towards a very bright future.

Looking a bit ahead to June 4th we are very happy to have Zaac Pick back at the cafe. His first performance in February of 2010 made a real impact on us, in fact we liked him so much we used one of his tunes as our show intro music. This is a show you don't want to miss!
