Mother's Day Brunch with Jenie Thai- May 13, 2018

** 12:00-2:00 AND 3:00-5:00 BRUNCH EVENTS **

Born in Chiang Mai Thailand, and raised outside of Edmonton, Jenie Thai is building a musical presence throughout the country through the electric energy she displays on stage and the old soul that's conveyed through her songwriting. Her studying of music began at age five; she took private piano lessons for fifteen years. Through her classical training she spent her early school years performing difficult repertoire at various workshops, camps, and yearly round festivals receiving national accolade. 

Graduating at seventeen, she continued her musical development, studying classical piano at Augustana University. In 2008, Jenie diversified her education attending Grant MacEwan Jazz and Contemporary Music Program as a performance major. Upon graduation, Jenie was offered a part-time teaching position at Grant MacEwan University and gained acceptance into Paul McCartney’s international music school based in Liverpool.

In 2011, Jenie released her EP “Lady Flower”. With the titled track she received an “honourable mention” as a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition (ISC) under the performance category (a category of 13 finalists out of 16, 000 submissions from around the globe). With the EP, she has been heard on many festival stages including both the Edmonton Folk Music Festival (2011) and the Canmore Folk Festival (2012). 

Both solo and with her trio, Jenie has shared her songs across the country on festival stages, in blues bars, theatres, lounges, and living rooms. In spring of 2012, Jenie started the “Couch Concert Series”, a continuing project where she arrives on strangers steps to play a living room show in exchange for donations and a couch to sleep on. 

In April 2013, Jenie Thai released "Only The Moon" which is “a beautifully crafted nine-song album of original songs showcasing a voice that has warmth and beauty..." writes David Farrell, writer for Toronto's New Canadian Music. The organic and vibrant music has been unearthed through the stereos of CBC Radio 1, 2, and 3, CKUA, CJSR, and other various stations from coast to coast and internationally being aired in states such as Flordia and New York. With the album, Jenie was nominated for several Edmonton Music Awards (2013, 2014) for “Artist To Watch” and “Female Artist of the Year”. 

Furthermore, in January 2014, Jenie Thai represented Northern Alberta as a semi-finalist in the 30th International Blues Challenge held in Memphis. Most recently, she was nominated for a 2016 Maple Blues Award for "Best New Artist of The Year". 

Vocally, she has been compared to Eva Cassidy, but soaks in the musical influences of Tom Waits, Bonnie Raitt, Memphis Slim, and Nina Simone. .A performer, song-writer, singer, and instrumentalist: Jenie Thai combines her love of the traditional piano blues, sixties r&b, and great American songwriters to produce a unique charm as a roots and blues musician on the national and international scene.

Southern Supper with Harrison Kennedy- May 26, 2018

*** SATURDAY NIGHT SUPPER EVENT ***

Electro-Fi Artist HARRISON KENNEDY was awarded the 2016 “Blues Album of the Year” JUNO for his album “This Is From Here” at the 45th annual JUNO Awards (Canada’s Grammy) in Calgary, Alberta on April 2nd. This was the 6th nomination for the Hamilton, ON. based artist. 

Harrison grew up in a house filled with music and famous visitors such as Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday and Lonnie Johnson. In 1969 he took a hiatus from college to become a founding member of the million selling Detroit Soul Super Group “The Chairmen of the Board” with whom he toured the world, as well as appearing on Soul Train, American Bandstand and the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.

Since signing with Electro-Fi Records in 2007, Harrison Kennedy has released 5 internationally acclaimed albums and developed into one of the 21st century’s most insightful and original Blues singer/songwriters.

The JUNO winning album “This Is From Here” was co-produced by keyboard ace JESSE O’BRIEN, with Roots Guitar Master COLIN LINDEN guesting on several tracks. It has also won the prestigious Academie Charles Cros in France for 2016 Blues Album of the Year. Harrison will be touring Southern Ontario in April with the dynamic RUTHIE FOSTER, in addition to performing both solo and with his band throughout North America during the Summer Festival season. 

We can’t think of a better way to celebrate Electro-Fi Records 20th Anniversary and HARRISON KENNEDY’S 75th Birthday than to bring you another wonderful album from the man himself. The 2016 JUNO Award winner has raised the bar yet again with WHO U TELLIN’? Firmly established as one of the 21st Century’s foremost Blues singer/ songwriters, Harrison has enlisted the talents of JIMMY BOWSKILL (Sheepdogs, Blue Rodeo), Co-Producer ALEC FRASER (Jeff Healey band, Fraser Daley) and fellow Juno winners (Canada’s Grammy) JACK DE KEYZER and JULIAN FAUTH on the 12 down home originals and 1 cover “Patches”, which were recorded at Toronto’s Lincoln Park Social Club studio. 

Harrison’s dynamic vocal gifts, which have won him worldwide acclaim going all the way back to his days as a founding member of the million selling Detroit Soul Super Group the Chairmen of the Board in the 70’s, are aptly showcased here on the new album. LIVING BLUES magazine says it best “Harrison Kennedy is a modern Blues Master of True Substance”.'

Our special menu menu will include Country-Fried Steak with Cream Gravy; Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes; Green Beans cooked with Bacon and Red Potatoes; Buttermilk Biscuits; Lemon Icebox Pie; Sweet Iced Tea; & Cafe du Monde Chicory & Coffee.

Southern Supper with Paul James- Saturday, June 16, 2018

** FATHER'S DAY WEEKEND **

Paul James is one of the most exciting and energetic Toronto-based Canadian musicians – past, present and future.

Paul James has received many music awards during his long career in the music business. He is winner of a Juno Award, multiple Toronto Music Awards,‘The Maple Blues (Lifetime Achievement Award for Blues Music in Canada), the London Fire Hall Lifetime Achievement Award, and he has many more music awards to grace his mantle. However, winning the respect of his musical peers always rated more highly than winning any awards for Paul.

Bo Diddley asked Paul to open his show and to back him up over 100 times between the years 1973 and 2007. Paul co-wrote a song with Bo, recorded with him and helped him to create the whole soundtrack for the movie, ‘Diary of a Sinner’. Bo Diddley played on Paul’s first vinyl album,’ Almost Crazy’, and wrote the liner notes for his second album, ‘The Paul James Band’. In 1986 Bo wrote: “From the beginning of his young career, I predicted that Paul James would be a big star one day and that time is now! The man is a true professional and dynamic! Listening to Paul James is listening to the building of a new thing, and he is a new thing. Paul James is a great musician, He’s a great tribute to Rock’n’Roll.”

Bob Dylan sat in with Paul’s band, and came to see Paul perform on numerous occasions. In 1990, Dylan invited Paul James to play an acoustic set to open his show at Canada’s Wonderland. Dylan further invited Paul to sit in with his band many times in Toronto, London, Oshawa and Buffalo. In 1986, when they first met, Dylan advised Paul that if he would move to L.A. and just do what he does in Toronto there, he would make it big for sure. Unfortunately, Paul had to keep his home base in Toronto for family reasons.

In 1982, Willy DeVille asked Paul to join his New York based band, Mink DeVille. Paul stayed in New York living in Willy’s apartment in Greenwich Village for about a month while learning all the Mink DeVille material for an upcoming twelve country world tour. Paul also recorded with Mink DeVille while he was in New York before the tour. There is a Great DVD documenting that tour titled ‘Mink DeVille Live at Montreux 1982’.

Paul played lead and rhythm guitar for New York Bluesman John Hammond. They played about 100 nights together over a thirty year period, mostly in Toronto and also in Ottawa, London, Montreal and Edmonton. Paul played on one of Hammond’s albums, ‘Nobody But You’ and Hammond played on two of Paul’s albums,’Acoustic Blues’ and Rockin’ the Blues’.

Paul has played guitar for Texas guitar great Lightning Hopkins, and piano greats Sunnyland Slim, Johnny Johnson, and Dr, John.

Paul James was a trailblazer for the independent music scene in Canada, as he was an independent recording artist long before it was popular to be one. He released his first vinyl 45 RPM original single, ‘Joint Out Back’ in 1973, on his own label Lick’n’Stick Records. Paul proved he could be successful as an Indie artist and many others followed his lead thereafter. He probably was the first independent recording artist to play all ten provinces in Canada, traveling in his van with his band.

Paul was a Canadian Blues Crusader! He played the Blues in bars since 1968 when it was not nearly as popular as it is now and long before there were any ‘Blues Societies’ or ‘Blues Awards in Canada.’ Paul James kept the Blues flame burning in Toronto even through the late 1970s when the disco era caused so many live bands to give up.

Currently, Paul James is a Canadian cultural icon. He is a veteran entertainer who has seen all that this crazy music business has to offer. His talents as a guitarist, vocalist, band leader, stage acrobat, producer, songwriter, trailblazer, and owner of his own Indie record label have all allowed Paul to perform and produce the music he loves for close to five decades. Paul is not over the hill yet – in fact, he is still going up it!

Paul James is a real musician’s musician. He has been constantly surrounded by the world’s stage of big time players, such as Mink DeVille, Bo Diddley, Bob Dylan, John Hammond, Dr. John, Spencer Davis, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Jeff Healey, Honeyboy Edwards, Johnny Johnson, Jack Scott, and Sunnyland Slim, just to name a few.

Sometimes it does pay to play the clown. Just ask Toronto bluesman Paul James. Way back when, in 1986, James was hamming it up in his trademark style at a Nag's Head North gig. Wearing a crazy, ruffled, purple tuxedo shirt, James boogied over to the
bar. He was playing with one hand and drinking a beer with the other when, lo and behold, Bob Dylan jumped up right in front of him. Yes, that Bob Dylan. The legendary folk-rock star was impressed. James, a Dylan fan since he "first heard him," thought he was hallucinating. Dylan joined him on stage. "Just introduce me as the hitchhiker from Vancouver," he told James.

A few weeks ago, Dylan returned the favour -- summoning James to a concert at Buffalo's Midland Arena. Near the end of the show, Dylan announced that he had a friend in the audience. Would Paul James care to join him on stage?

"Uh, oh," James recalls saying to himself. "That's me." Together they performed Highway 61 and Like a Rolling Stone, then came back for an encore of Leopard Skin Pillbox Hat and Buddy Holly's Not Fade Away. After the show, Dylan told James he'd like to give him a call when he's recording his next album.

"Well, do it," said James, who's still walking around in a daze after his "dream come true." Kind of makes it hard, one would imagine, to go back to the dingy barroom circuit.

Our special menu for this Supper event includes....

Catfish, Shrimp, Sausage, & Okra Gumbo; Blackened Chicken Fillets; Coleslaw with Remoulade Dressing; Buttermilk Cornbread Muffin; Pecan Pie; Sweet Iced Tea; & Cafe du Monde Coffee & Chicory.
