Keith Glass Band
The sound of Keith Glass Band can best be described as rock and roll - with all that term encompasses: R&B, country, folk, blues, rock - all fused into Keith’s original songs.
Keith is an old friend of Greenbank audiences who has visited us before as a solo act as well as with another old friend and favourite, Lynn Miles. A singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist (guitar, mandolin, bass), producer, and a founding member, guitarist and songwriter of Prairie Oyster, he is a member of the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame.
Alistair Dennett was the first drummer in Prairie Oyster. He has been playing in bands with Keith since high school. Upon landing in Ottawa, Alistair has played with Brock Zeman, Sneezy Waters and His Excellent Band, Ball and Chain and Morningwood Trio. He is also an accomplished bodhran player/teacher
Steve Trecarten is one of Ottawa’s premiere tenor and baritone sax players, and an accomplished blues, jazz and rock keyboardist.
Mike Turenne is a consummate veteran bassist from the Ottawa area.
We are delighted that the Keith Glass Band can join us for our opening night of the season! Don't miss it!
"The KGB group is locked in tight and present Keith's best songwriting to date. As comfortable as slippers and satisfying as a good meal. Run, don't walk, to their next gig!"
Opening: Dennis O'Toole

Another favourite of Greenbank audiences returns by popular demand!
From the website:
"Francey's clear, simple songs speak volumes to his followers. After a decade in music, David Francey is known as one of Canada's finest tunesmiths and a champion of the Everyman, admired for his less-is-more approach to writing. It's amazing how he manages to address deep stuff with such spare ingredients" The Edmonton Journal

Boreal (Tannis Slimmon, Katherine Wheatley & Angie Nussey)
From the web site:
"This November and December, Guelph musicians Tannis Slimmon and Katherine Wheatley will be joined by their new bandmate Angie Nussey from Orillia to perform their show "Song's For The Snowy Season". The show celebrates the coming of winter and the spirit of the holiday season.
These three Canadian songstresses have dug up old songs and written new ones about the snowy season. Their lyrics conjure up vivid sights and sounds that every Canadian would fondly recognize: pine branches bending low, squirrels’ footprints in the snow, winter’s hush, the icy breath that accompanies shovelling, the sound of slap shots off the boards, the angel truck drivers who lead us home in blizzards.
Boreal's rapport, with each other and with the audience, is warm, friendly, and genuine. Their love of melodies and harmonies, their combined songwriting skills, their tour de force voices, and the joy they feel singing with each other all make for an unforgettable event. It is the perfect antidote to a cold winter’s night.

Danny Michel's thoughtful lyrics & charming performances have earned a devoted fan base, multiple nominations for Junos, The Polaris Prize, CBC’s "Heart Of Gold", and most recently winning the CFMA's "Producer of the year" and "Oliver Schroder Pushing the Boundaries" Awards. But Danny considers his career highlights to be the unique real life moments like performing for Jane Goodall’s 85th birthday party, touring with Stuart Mclean and working with charities close to his heart. “When I was eleven, I spent a month living in Khartoum, Sudan. It was there I was exposed to a very different world…and music beyond Rock & Roll”
”By this point, singer/songwriter Danny Michel must be a bit weary of being ranked as one of this country's undiscovered musical treasures. But it's true" THE TORONTO STAR
