Approaching 20 years as a band, and with a storied catalogue including their seminal 2007 album “Set Yourself On Fire”, Montreal’s STARS have made a career telling the tales we keep in the darkest, and most hopeful parts of our souls. NAC Presents is honoured to welcome this legendary art-pop collective live in Southam Hall with the NAC Orchestra!
This holiday season join Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy, the award-winning fiddle virtuosos, in an intimate and unique Christmas concert series you will never forget. With the duo accompanied by an incredible array of talented session musicians – and their entire family – A Celtic Family Christmas will guide you into the wonderful world of a true Cape Breton Christmas celebration. “This tour is going to have an energy that goes beyond the duration of the show,” says Natalie MacMaster. “I want it to stay with our fans throughout the holidays, and beyond.”
From Romanian-jazz to flamenco and beyond, the award winning Sultans of String are Canada’s mutable masters of global string music. They return to the NAC to expand traditional notions of holiday music with their new, genre-hopping disc, “Christmas Caravan”. On it, they combine Quebecois fiddle tunes with a traditional Turkish string ensemble, re-imagine classic pop songs by the Andrews Sisters, go on a Himalayan sleigh ride, and much more. This is Christmas as you’ve never heard it, honouring countless global perspectives, and performed by some of the world’s most renowned players.
Blessed with titanic pipes and monumental spirit, Matt Anderson is without a doubt Canada’s crowned-prince of soul-infused blues-rock. Anderson lights up Southam Hall this season in support of his incendiary new album “Honest Man”.
The inexplicable magic, joy, and romance of Roma-swing jazz! Join Trio BBQ for a revelatory holiday show like no other. Vocalist Katerine Desrochers, percussionist Véronique Boucher, and the VoxA4 quartet add that swing to Christmas classics, and whisk you off to another time in faraway lands for a night of musical revelry!
NAC Presents is thrilled to welcome one of Canada’s brightest stars for two spectacular nights in Southam Hall, joined by the NAC Orchestra!
Johnny Reid has built up a ravenous audience worldwide with his irrefutable charm, smoky tenor, and formidable on-stage presence. Over an illustrious career spanning more than a decade, the JUNO Award winning singer-songwriter has amassed an extensive catalogue of hit songs, album sales totalling over 1.5 million units in Canada, countless awards and multiple sold out national arena tours.
Since their debut in 2008, RANT MAGGIE RANT has consistently won over audiences at festivals, folk clubs, town halls, churches, concert halls and symphonic stages. The original goal was to take traditional Celtic music as the foundation, then liberally and unapologetically colour outside the prescribed lines. In a nut-shell, have fun!
The product of a vast and complex roots, Nomad'Stones is a collective music project cobbled from universal dust. Drawing on African, Latin, and pan-national musical influences, Nomad'Stones' music is inimitable, unplaceable, but wholly familiar: borderless music for borderless times.
Country legends Doc Walker are releasing their new album, Weathervane, March 31. The first single from the new record, "Heart of the Heartland" pays homage to small town pride across the country. The single will be available digitally and on country radio on March 17, 2017.
Founded in 2011, Choir! Choir! Choir! has amassed a dedicated and passionate community of singers and a thriving international fan base on YouTube (15,000 subscribers and over 10 million views). The group has performed with renowned artists such as Patti Smith, Tegan and Sara, and Rufus Wainwright, and onstage at New York’s Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall with the likes of Debbie Harry and The Flaming Lips. Choir! Choir! Choir! exists to celebrate music and push the boundaries between practice and performance, artist and audience, offering therapeutic benefits with the ultimate side effect: a powerful community.
Born in a tent and raised in a cabin on the shores of a glacial lake in the Kluane region of Canada’s Yukon, country-roots artist Diyet is a seamless amalgam of cultures. Via folk music and Aboriginal forms, she channels her various linages (Southern Tutchone, Japanese, Tlingit and Scottish) into stories and melodies deeply rooted in her Indigenous world view, and northern reality. The owner of a formidable voice, she performs as a trio with husband/guitarist/collaborator, Robert van Lieshout, and multi- instrumentalist, Bob Hamilton. Diyet’s music is an adventurous show and tell, effortlessly balancing modernity and tradition.
The Ennis Sisters stepped into the spotlight in 1997 with the release of their debut album, Red is the Rose. 20 years later, with 12 albums, a Juno award and multiple music awards to their credit, Maureen, Karen and Teresa have toured all over the world, performing on some of the most prestigious stages and festivals.
A charismatic charmer and a smasher of pianos. A madman and an earnest poet. A strummer of
delicate chords and a lover of bent and broken melodies. Ben Caplan is not any one thing. As he
releases his second album, he's already gained a following in more than a dozen countries from
Australia to Europe and across North America. It's no surprise. Caplan is simply unforgettable;
with his huge beard and unruly mane, he is as visually striking as he is aurally compelling.
Recognized by his peers as one of Canada’s best performing songwriters, Lennie Gallant has released twelve albums (10 in English and 2 in French) of original songs which have won him a host of awards and nominations from the JUNOs, Les Prix Eloizes, and The East Coast Music Awards, including 2017 ECMA Entertainer of the Year.
