Leeroy will bring us his personal brand of revolution roots-rock. His 8th studio album, Truth Be Sold, was recorded during and inspired by the Occupy Movement events of this past winter. What better place for him to perform than at the Ottawa Jazz Festival on Canada Day – for FREE – at 5 pm on the OLG stage.
Many other bands are playing for free that day, including our friends, Erik Lind and the Orchard. Catch them at 3 pm at the OLG stage.
An authenticity runs through Canadian singer-songwriter Lynn Jackson’s music that reflects a deep commitment to telling stories that ring true with listeners. Her 6th studio album, Down in the Dust, sees Jackson using her ‘whiskey and honey’ voice to mix her timeless melodies. Ms. Jackson is coming to the Rainbow with Jesse Parent on Sat. July 6 at 4pm as part of their ‘Have Plaid Will Travel’ Ontario tour.
Support our local bands! 20 bands will be featured in the Landmark showcase competition over 2 nights this weekend at Mavericks. Tickets are $13, but I will be giving away a pair for the Saturday show. Keep this number handy: 613-562-5967.
