JamSchool's music education accents live performance as the key to developing a life-long love of music. We partner with JamSchool to provide performance opportunities for their students, not only to show support but also because we're impressed by the talent. You will be too.
Our Girls & Guitars finale showcases students from the winter 2020 songwriting course who will sing their original compositions for you. Come show your support for these artists and for the Girls & Guitars project, which is designed to address the gender imbalance in the music industry and to encourage female-identified musicians to write songs that speak of and to them.
Fred Penner is a gentle giant with an undeniable ability to make you feel good about yourself. We expect to see the full panoply of age demographics out for this show, from chubby toddlers to nostalgic seniors, and everyone in between!
No, the members of this band are not women. They’re guys from both Tokyo Police Club and Hollerado. The songwriting is brilliant: the banalities of life are shot through with original insights and lovely heart-sinking twists. Honest, catchy, rockin’ music for a Saturday afternoon in the City of Song. Part of Music Weekends in Downtown Guelph. This is a Pay What You Can event.
