Burton Cummings - Up Close and Alone Tour

Tickets $85
SOLD OUT

Canadian  Rock Icon Returns to Kootenay’s for an Encore Performance

In  the Fall of 2017, Burton Cummings played to sold out shows right across B.C., and now, by popular demand, he is coming back to the Kootenay’s in October with his outstanding “Up Close and Alone" Tour 2019, much to the delight of Kootenay music fans who jammed both buildings to capacity two years ago, and both shows sold out in just a few days.

 Burton Cummings’ musical creations continue to resonate with fans in North America.. His voice is considered to be one of the finest and most recognizable in rock music history..He has continued to uphold his impressive reputation as a performer, singer, songwriter, and recording artist. With Canada’s original rock ’n’ roll superstars, The Guess Who, Burton scored an unprecedented string of international hit singles and albums, including These Eyes, Laughing, No Time, American Woman, Share the Land, Albert Flasher, Sour Suite, Glamour Boy, Star Baby, Clap for the Wolfman, and Dancin’ Fool, all written or co-written by Burton. Upon leaving the Guess Who to go solo in 1976, Cummings earned a gold record with his debut solo single, Stand Tall. Then came more than a dozen hit singles and albums including, I’m Scared, I will Play a Rhapsody, Timeless Love, Break it to Them Gently, Fine State of Affairs, You Saved my Soul, My own Way to Rock and Dream of a Child. That latter disc became the very first quadruple platinum-selling album by a Canadian artist.

Cummings is described as Canadian rock ’n’ roll royalty, a National treasure, and a living legend. It is no wonder, as he is a member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, Canadian Music industry Hall of Fame, Canadian Walk of Fame, Prairie Music Hall of Fame, a multiple Juno Award Winner, and the recipient of the Order of Canada, the Order of Manitoba, and Governor-General’s Performance Arts Award. Burton Cummings is indeed that rare artist who has transcended time, genres, and generations with a body of work that continues to resonate with fans both old and new. Audiences nightly, both those in the USA, and Canada are dancing in the aisles to the hits that defined a generation.

This is a show not to be missed, so fans are advised to get their tickets early to avoid disappointment.

Burton Cummings, "Up Close and Alone Tour" is a presentation of the Kootenay Concert Connection in association with the Drive 102.9.

The Young'uns

On the intimate Gallery Stage!

Teesside trio The Young’uns have always had the human touch. In the space of little more than a decade - and just five years after giving up their day jobs - they have become one of UK folk music’s hottest properties and best- loved acts.

Stockton Folk Club’s star graduates clinched the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards ‘Best Group’ title two years running (2015 and 2016) and the last years have seen them spreading the net, taking their unique act and instant audience rapport to Canada, America and Australia.

With their strong songs, spellbinding harmonies and rapid fire humour, they have achieved one of the trickiest balancing acts – an ability to truly ‘make them laugh and make them cry’, while cutting straight to the heart of some of our most topical issues.

A Simple Space: Gravity & Other Myths

Tickets: $45 Regular | $39 Big Ticket | $35 Big Ticket Plus
$55 VIP On Stage Experience

Seven acrobats push their physical limits without reserve; this performance is simultaneously raw, frantic and delicate. . A Simple Space evokes real responses in audiences, something visceral rather than cerebral. Supported by driving live percussion and presented so intimately that you can feel the heat, hear every breath, and be immersed in every moment.

A Simple Space evokes real responses in audiences, something visceral rather than cerebral. Instead of fine-tuning the performance with makeup, lighting and contrived theatrical overlay, the cast have deliberately gone the opposite way. The audience is brought in close to surround the stripped back stage. In that space the acrobats are pushed to the physical limit, breaking down their usual guards and introducing the reality of failure and weakness. With nothing left to hide behind personal narratives come through naturally. This honesty is the essence behind A Simple Space.

The Huron Carole is a seasonal music tradition spanning 3 decades touring from coast to coast to coast. Expect an evening of contemporary and signature Christmas music along with stories creatively crafted by Tom Jackson and his ensemble of musicians. The tour travels to 15 cities raising funds for local food banks and family service agencies. Many remark that it’s the perfect way to begin their Christmas season and get into the spirit of the holidays.

“If you told me in 1987 that I’d be committing to a lifetime of producing Christmas shows across Canada, I would have been overwhelmed and may not have even started. I am so blessed to have spent over 30 years on the road sharing music, meeting those we serve, embracing the caregivers, celebrating community leaders and working with corporate investors who are committed to changing the quality of life in their own backyard.”

Tom Jackson, founder of The Huron Carole Benefit Concert Series, is a musician, beloved TV personality (North of 60, Star Trek, Law and Order), and long-time champion for the marginalized. Having experienced life on the streets himself, he discovered music was a way to help others.

Serena Ryder's Christmas Kisses Tour to Stop at Cranbrook’s Key City Theatre in December

Serena Ryder first gained National recognition with her hit ballad “Weak in the Knees” in 2007, and is an accomplished songwriter, singer, and musician who possesses a three octave vocal range.

Ryder’s music has been influenced by genres ranging from R&B, jazz, folk, country, classical and blues. She says that her influences include Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Ella Fitzgerald, Roger Miller, Hank Williams, John Prine, Paul Simon, Lina Ronstad, Buddy Holly, Stevie Nicks, Neil Young, and the Rolling Stones just to name a few. In addition to her incredible vocal talents, she plays guitar, piano, mandolin, ukulele, harmonica, banjo, clarinet, drums, and bass.

In April of 2008, Ryder received her first Juno Award for Canada’s Best New Artist of the Year, and then in 2009 she won another Juno for Adult Alternative Album of the Year for her album “Is it Ok.” Again in 2010, a song from that album, “Little Bit of Red”, scored the Juno for Best Video of the year. Her career was well on its way to the top. That same year she joined the lineup of Lilith Fair and the very next year she toured with Melissa Etheridge right across Canada playing to sold out crowds.

Ryder’s song “Broken Heart Sun”, was performed as a duet, and a recording was released on her EP ‘Live" and she performed the song with Etheridge at the Juno’s that same year. Ryder released the album, Harmony, in late November of 2012. The first single, “Stompa”, was used in an episode of ABC television’s Grey’s Anatomy and it quickly climbed the charts, and became certified platinum in 2013.

Ryder became the very first Canadian artist to be Number one on CBC’s Radio 2 Top 20 Chart. “Stompa" was being played in four different radio station formats: Modern Rock, Hot AC, Top 40, and Adult Contemporary.

In July of 2013 she appeared on the Tonight show with Jay Leno, and just before that performed live at the Calgary Stampede. 2014 was another huge Year for Ryder. She performed O Canada at the NBA All Star Game, and she co-hosted the Juno Awards where she also won Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year.

In June of 2017, she released her sixth studio album “Utopia”. The first single from the album was the much acclaimed “Electric Love.” 2018 was another busy year for the Canadian songstress. She did a duet with Brett Kissel at the CCMA awards in Hamilton which was hosted by Shania Twain, and shortly thereafter she started hosting her own

radio program on CHFI-FM which was rebroadcast across Canada

In October last year she released her first holiday album called "Christmas Kisses" and that is the title of her latest tour for 2019.The tour will feature songs from that holiday album as well as a mixture of her popular hit music.

The Christmas Kisses Tour 2019 will be making a stop in Cranbrook on Sunday December 1st at 7:30 P.M. at Cranbrook’s Key City Theatre.

Epilogos is built around the art of rhetoric and the commodification of morality. The appropriation of moral codes and value systems has been used to exert control by dictators, politicians and royalty. In Epilogos, the performance on stage becomes a device of persuasion, persuading the audience to see the power of each value in the moral code and the strength of the characters within these values. For Epilogos, we base each performance from the moral code of Bushido, the way of the samurai: duty, integrity, compassion, courage, honour, truth and morality.

From the darkness of an unlit stage, two strangers meet, each with a chair and what appears to be the same task to complete: place the chair, then leave. Their encounter disrupts their awareness of ‘self’ and ‘purpose’ and propels them headfirst into an exhilarating discourse of understandings and misunderstandings.

With masterful physicality and quick-witted wordplay, James & Jamesy conjure answers to the age-old questions ‘Who are we?’ and ‘Why are we here?’ The result is laugh-out-loud hilarious and surprisingly illuminating.

"People often speak of 'the magic of theatre' , but this is truly magical...This is comedy at its profoundest and most essential"

Rockies Film Series:Wild Rose

Tickets $12

Sponsored by Ciao Tours

This British made film tells the complicated story of Rose-Lynn, a woman on a quest to become a country music star… Rolling Stones magazine touts it as a Ballad of a Honky-Tonk woman; the story of a Scottish single mother who dreams of country-music glory is fueled by one knockout performance!

Special opening performance by Maddisun of her new song “Wild Roses”
Maddisun is a Cranbrook girl, a musician and producer with dreamy soulful vocals and expressive lyrics. Her feel-good, Indie/pop music is written from the heart.

The song (Wild Roses) is elegant, heartfelt and a passionate slice of indie-pop. It is smouldering with emotion as it gently grooves along through a breezy world. It is catchy and infectious.

The Small Glories

Saturday October 5 at 7:30 pm
Tickets $35 | $29 Big Ticket | $25 Big Ticket PLUS

OPENER: THE PARSONS

Roots powerhouse duo The Small Glories are Cara Luft & JD Edwards, a musical tour-de-force partnership planted on the Canadian Prairies. Thrown together purely by accident for an anniversary show at Winnipeg’s venerable West End Cultural Centre, The Small Glories could almost make you believe in fate.

With a stage banter striking a unique balance between slapstick and sermon, these veteran singer-songwriters have a way of making time disappear, rooms shrink, and audiences feel as they are right there on the stage with the band — writing the songs, living the songs, performing the songs. It’s not uncommon for listeners to find themselves laughing, dancing, crying, or caught up in a good ol’ fashioned sing-along.

THE PARSONS
Don’t let the relative youth of Clayton & Joelle Parsons fool you—they are old souls with a sound that transcends time. Their genuine country-roots style is reminiscent of the ‘60’s American folk revival scene that birthed Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris, Pete Seeger, and Peter, Paul & Mary.

Clayton Parsons grew up with music as a constant and he counts his parents and seven siblings as his primary musical influences. Along with his dad’s rendition of James Taylor songs, Parsons also listened to plenty of Fleetwood Mac, the Beatles, Neil Young and Nickel Creek. He played solo and with numerous bands in his hometown of Cranbrook, B.C, before joining alt-folk band The Good Ol’ Goats, and meeting vocalist Joelle—and falling in love with her voice, and then the singer herself. Joelle was surrounded by song as a child, and began singing with church and school choirs, musical theatre productions and at community events. She was influenced by old gospel songs and traditional hymns as much as she was by classic rock and alternative artists. And when she and Parsons finally met, their chemistry—musical and personal—was undeniable. When their previous band went on hiatus, The Parsons emerged.

The deftness of their singing and songwriting has not gone unsung: the recently married duo were recognized by the Kootenay Music Awards with the Album of the Year for their debut release in 2016. Live, their sweet and soulful music is punctuated with stories behind the songs, inside jokes that the whole audience becomes a part of and true generosity of spirit.

Tickets $42 | $36 Big Ticket | $32 Big Ticket PLUS

Internationally acclaimed pianist Michael Kaeshammer returns to Key City Theatre for one show only Wednesday October 2. Accompanied by his professional band, Kaeshammer cooks up flavours of jazz, boogie woogie and blues with passion and verve. A spellbinding artist, this performance will take you on a journey you won’t soon forget. </br>

His new album, SOMETHING NEW, is a new musical adventure. Produced by Michael himself it features 10 original songs about love, life, travel and politics. Recorded at the historic Esplanade Studios in the heart of New Orleans’ Treme district, Kaeshammer along with Big Easy legends Cyril Neville (The Neville Brothers), George Porter Jr (The Meters), Johnny Vidacovich (Professor Longhair), Mike Dillon (Primus), the New Orleans Nightcrawlers Brass Band and Canadian bassist David Piltch (k.d. lang) create an eclectic sonic ride. Very special guests include Colin James, Randy Bachman, Curtis Salgado, Jim Byrnes, Amos Garrett and Chuck Leavall of The Rolling Stones.

It is easy to distinguish great music upon first listen, regardless of genre labels and titles. Kaeshammer’s passion for writing, performing and producing exceptional music is abundantly clear. Flavours of jazz, boogie-woogie and blues combined with passion and meticulous detail, Michael Kaeshammer is unafraid of crossing genre boundaries and uses his many influences to take the listener along on a memorable journey.

On The Other Hand: Two True Musical Tales of Choice

Saturday September 14 at 7:30 pm
Regular $23 | Senior $21 | Youth $17

Rated 14A - Some Adult content and language

Join Bessie and Ellie for an evening of two solo performances that dwell at the nexus of memoir and musical theatre!

Bessie Wapp’s story “Jesus Christ Superstore” (25 minutes) is a true tale about a surreal weekend in which birth control, the big box phenomenon and a cinematic cult classic collided. The real life events portrayed in Wapp’s story came on the heels of an 11th hour realization that she had “forgotten to have children”. This piece is an attempt to understand that challenging time - using humour, song, and one very large honeydew melon.

Ellie Reynolds’ brand new one-woman show “Matchmaker on the Roof” (70 minutes) is an intimate and often hilarious journey of the heroine’s flight from ‘Tradition’ and her home in England, across the Atlantic to the Kootenays - where she finds a surprising and ‘most unusual match’. Borrowing bits of the familiar and wonderful music from Fiddler on the Roof, Ellie tells her own musical tale of bold love, border crossing, and the (re)discovery of Tradition. Except this time it’s the omnipresent and playful Matchmaker, rather than a Fiddler, that forms the central metaphor.

“Amazing singing, very intuitive and powerful stage acting, impeccable writing, and just an overwhelming embodiment of grace and humour and rich goodness”
East Shore Mainstreet

SYNOPSIS

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well. 

In SCREENAGERS, as with her award-winning documentaries on mental health, Delaney takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can
empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.
