Concerts at the Kaleidoscope Gathering 2015
Austin Lawrence, June 2015
Cory Orr – Wednesday (July 29, 2015)
Cory Orr is a local musician performing all over Ontario. Last summer he quit his job as a cabinet maker so he could travel and play music. He spent two and a half months performing everywhere from the streets, beaches, festivals, cafes and bars! Currently he’s working at a skateboard shop and playing as much music as possible. This summer is going to be another great one! Let’s kick back relax and enjoy the tunes! You can follow him on Facebook and check out his music on SoundCloud.
Fiddlehead Soup – Wednesday (July 29, 2015)
Fiddlehead Soup is an Eastern Ontario trio transports listeners to Scandinavia, southern Europe, South America and beyond with a wonderful collection of folk songs sprinkled with a garnish of Scottish and Irish tunes and original music. Featuring veteran musician Douglas Hendry on cittern and 12-string guitar, and mother-and-daughter team Glenna Hunter and Ursa Meyer on fiddles (and other instruments that come to hand), this delightfully earthy trio provides a most pleasing pottage of international folk.
Tara Rice – Thursday (July 30, 2015)
Rice’s voice has been described as haunting and otherworldly, ebbing and flowing symbiotically with her propensity for bending genres. Throughout her music we can experience a heartbreaking vulnerability expressed in one moment, playful inquisitiveness or sensuality in the next and then the hiss of barbed vitriol. Yet somehow, it all seems to happen at the right time, delivered with emotionally wide-ranging lyrics and melodies that endure in the soul. You can find her work on the Gaia Gathering album “Songs of the Northern Tribes,” or check her music out on her website.
Mumbo Jumbo Voodoo Combo – Friday (July 31, 2015)
From the dark crossroads comes the classic rock and soul, New Orleans Mardi Gras, R&B, Zydeco, Voodoo and Latin Jazz Grooves of the hoodoo bretheren, the Mumbo Jumbo Voodoo Combo. The band has been around since 1991 after instigator Steve Lund (Vocals & Drums) worked the root on some talented musicians. With Steve, the band consists of Brian Magner (Sax, Vocals & Percussion), Grant Tomkinson (Vocals & Bass guitar), and Guido Guzzo (Organ, Piano & Vocals).
Jenny Robert – Sunday (August 2, 2015)
Jenny will keep your heart and soul activated with her velvety smooth vocals, her sweet and loving personality, and her undying passion for life. Jenny was born and raised in the small town of Timmins, Ontario Canada. She is always on a journey towards fulfilling her musical passion. (You may remember her from a Bardic Competition win a few years ago.) Check out her music on her website.
Ginger Doss – Sunday (August 2, 2015)
Ginger Doss is a spiritual seeker, performing songwriter and music producer from Austin, Texas, whose work spans multiple genres, including pop, rock, alternative and spiritual folk. Six years ago she gave up having a permanent home and began living the nomadic life of a highway hippy, seeking to unite, heal and uplift the human tribe by strengthening our connection to the divine and each other through music. She now performs her award winning music, a.k.a. Chakra Rock, internationally to a wide variety of diverse and spiritual communities where the focus is expanding human potential through the strength of community and the pursuit of enlightenment. (If we are lucky the talented bass player, Lynda Millard, may be able to accompany her. As when she visited us in 2013, she love to play with skilled local fest drummers.) Check her out on Facebook or buy her music on-line.
