Still merry after all these years, the Good Lovelies will be headed across Canada this November & December with their annual Christmas show.

Coming Soon… Colin James – Up Close and Personal


Performance: Wednesday, January 17
Doors: 7:00pm
Show: 8:00pm

Presented by Music by the Bay Live

From the prairies of Saskatchewan to the stages of the world, sharing his talent with some of the greatest and most influential musicians of all time, Colin James has quietly and steadily established himself as one of Canada’s greatest musicians.

For his 18th album, Blue Highways, Colin pays tribute to some of his long-time blues idols including Howlin’ Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Freddie King, Jr. Wells & Buddy Guy, Peter Green, Robert Johnson and William Bell to name a few. In the spring of 2015 after wrapping up his Hearts on Fire Tour, Colin was loving playing with his band and very happy with the sound they had created on stage. What better time to make a record! Especially the record Colin had been itching to make for years – a collection of some of his favourite blues tracks. In less than a week Colin was recording in The Warehouse Studios in Vancouver and in just two days, Blue Highways was born.

January 17th will be an amazing night of music with a Canadian legend and Chris Caddell, one of Canada’s treasured up and coming singer-songwriters who are both considered two of Canada’s finest guitarists.

Be part of the experience with Colin James – Up Close and Personal in Port Perry on January 17th!

Mary cannot forget the years she spent teaching at a residential school in Nova Scotia. She was so young then and the world was such a different place. A decade has passed since the school was shuttered; however, the young teacher remains haunted by what she witnessed there. Teetering on the edge of reason, Mary’s path from faith to uncertainty plays out before her eyes. Feeling consumed by her memories, Mary does the only thing her fiery soul will allow her to do: confess.

Cathartic, evocative and forthright, this play will take audiences on an emotional journey that may never be forgotten.
