Quebec’s Dave Clarke, Ellen Shizgal and Tod Gorr return to Folk Night. Striking original material and a fresh acoustic sound have made Steel Rail a favourite of fans and critics over the last two decades. The Quebec band’s three albums have received rave reviews. Dave, Ellen and Tod have also been acclaimed for their lush harmonies, Dave’s stellar picking – he’s been hailed as one of Canada’s best acoustic guitarists – and a sound that gets its sensibility from folk, and its soul from bluegrass and old-style country. Steel Rail played for us in March of 2007 in our very first Folk Night season. Welcome back.

Bill Staines

“He carries on where Woody left off – carrying on the tradition of stories and characters you wish you knew.” Nanci Griffith.

America’s acclaimed singer-songwriter has traveled across North America for 4 decades, singing his songs and delighting audiences. A New England native, he became involved with the Boston-Cambridge folk scene in the early 1960s. Singing mostly his own songs, he has become one of the most popular and durable singers on the folk music scene today. Many of Bill’s songs have appeared in school music books, church hymnals, and campfire songbooks, and he has eight songs published in Rise Up Singing Songbook. We are delighted and honoured to have Bill Staines perform at our 11th Merrick Jarrett concert, which remembers Kitchener’s icon of folk music.
