#ICANTKEEPQUIET

Echo Women’s Choir, celebrating 25 years, continues to provide unique offerings that bridge the classical and contemporary choral spheres while always maintaining a strong commentary on issues facing our world. Their concert “We Can’t Keep Quiet!” takes its name from the #ICANTKEEPQUIET campaign created by American musician MILCK based on her song Quiet. An artist that “finds comfort in discomfort,” MILCK created the campaign to be a rallying call to break cycles of oppression and fear. The song was performed by a guerilla choir during the Women’s March on Washington, DC, on January 21, 2017.

Featured artist this month is Jon Brooks.
“I write songs to calm those who’ve looked into, and seen, what is in their hearts.  I also write songs to terrify those who have not.” — Jon Brooks 
Nearing the end of a year of travel in 1997 throughout Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, and particularly, throughout war ruined Bosnia-Herzegovina, Jon Brooks discovered what kind of song he wanted to write. In 2005, he began writing and performing that song – the song that looks for the soul of things. In 2010 Jon became the fourth Canadian since 1975 to win the prestigious Kerrville (TX) New Folk Award. Founder of The Kerrville Folk Festival, the late Rod Kennedy, said of Jon: “(Brooks) speaks and sings words that need to be spoken and sung and he does it beautifully, perfectly, and with absolute finesse.” He has now been nominated four times for ‘English Songwriter of the Year’ by the Canadian Folk Music Awards (2007, 2009, 2012, and 2015). Jon’s fifth album, The Smiling and Beautiful Countryside, was released November 1, 2014 by Borealis Records and was nominated for two 2015 Canadian Folk Music Awards: ‘Contemporary Album of the Year’ and ‘English Songwriter of the Year.’

Panter’s Pub kicks off 3rd season Sep 17

Inline image 2

The third season of of our pub party in the old chapel here at Holy Trinity starts Saturday, September 17.
Doors open at 7:30. The show starts at 8pm.

My old band Merbecke is getting together to play through our old recording, a few other favourites and one new tune. We sounded pretty good when we got together privately last winter, so I have high hopes for a fun and rocking show. I know we’re up against TURF, but sometimes that’s the way it goes with hard to schedule events like a Merbecke reunion. The name was originally Merbecke Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, but since nobody knew who the heck Merbecke was anyway, we decided to shorten it.

There will still be an open mic portion at 8pm, so if you have a poem, song, or something else you want to try out with an audience, let me know so I can schedule you in.

I’m turning 50 on September 15. While there likely won’t be much in the way of official birthday activities here (and please don’t bring presents), this will likely be the closest thing to a party that I arrange.

Panter’s Pub is a semi-private party upstairs in the old chapel at Holy Trinity, 19 Trinity Square, Toronto where local singer-songwriters, poets and radicals gather to have a good time and maybe plot the revolution. It’s for members and friends. If you’re seeing this, you’re almost certainly a member or friend. 🙂 Feel free to bring your own friends too.

Open Mic at 8pm,
Merbecke (Judy Steers, Caroline Owen, Keith Nunn, Neil MacNaughton) at 9,
Dancing at 10.
Entrance by donation,
BYOB (We also have wine, beer and seasonal cocktails if you just want to show up).

RSVP appreciated, but not necessary.

There are many stairs, I’m sorry. I will have some more ground floor events soon.
