Whiskey Jack Presents Stories & Songs of Stompin' Tom
This will be our 5th Annual Stompin' Tom Birthday Celebration. Previous birthday parties have welcomed old friends of Stompin' Tom's...such as the Rt. Hon. Adrienne Clarkson, Gordon Lightfoot, JP Cormier and many more. This year will be no exception. Besides the new location, we'll have two very special surprises.
Whiskey Jack is: Duncan Fremlin, founding member, banjoist and raconteur; Duncan's years on stage with Tom is instrumental in adding authenticity to their interpretation of Tom's songs.
Douglas John Cameron: two time Juno Award nominee (Mona With The Children fame) and multi instrumentalist. Not to be missed is Douglas John's take on Leonard Cohen singing Stompin' Tom's "lady kd lang". A Canadian music perfect storm if ever there was one.
Five time National Bluegrass Fiddle Champion, Randy Morrison adds fiddle pizzazz to the proceedings. This Graham Townsend protege leaves the crowd shaking their heads in amazement.
Local jazz singer Jen Cook (leader and driving force behind Red Jenny & The Boys) rounds out this talented foursome with her soaring vocals and dynamic stage presence.
