Sally Campbell, Troubadour, Candlelit Church, St. Alban’s, Sunday, Aug 19, 7:30 pm

Sally Campbell, Troubadour

Sally was given her first guitar when she was twelve and discovered an attraction for story in song, which grew into a lifelong passion. She has been writing and performing for more than 30 years and seeking to make a positive musical contribution, with the understanding that music has a powerful effect on the soul. She is an active member of the Brampton Folk Club, performing at community events and festivals. She was awarded a Bravo Award by the Brampton Arts Council in 2011-2012, for Outstanding Concert Performance (solo/small ensemble). She trained in Royal Conservatory piano instruction and Vocal training from Joyce Britton of the Austin Opera Company.
 
Strongly influenced by the Singer/Songwriters of the ’60s and ‘70s, Sally’s experience with small group performance, concert presentations, special music for church, camps and conference presentations have been opportunities to hone performance skill and an understanding of “knowing one’s audience”.
Her newest project involves weaving story with themed musical presentation. Current available themes in this format are Traveler: The journey of life and growth (folk based presentation) and Abiding: Reflections on spiritual strength (faith based presentation).
 
Sally is currently the Contemporary Worship Director at Christ Church in Brampton.

Recommended – The Tone Dogs, Texas Rock ‘N Blues, Symposium Café Patio, Every Wednesday till end of Sept, 6-9 pm

The TONE DOGS

A bittersweet slice of gut-slammin’ Texas Rockin’ Blues with Twang!

The Tonedogs will shuffle their way into your soul right from the opening chord. The band is dedicated to the authenticity of its sound. What makes them different is the clean vintage sound they grind out of gear that is older than most people who come out to see them.

Even the bartenders and bouncers smile as if they have stumbled onto the hippest gig on the planet!

The Tonedogs are:
Alex Carter...  Guitar,vocals,harmonica
Bob Milne….. Bass Guitar,vocals
Joe Nufrio..… Drumkit

Get ready for a night of asphalt blues burners and good old Rock n Roll to keep your heart pumpin’ and your feet jumpin’ right till last call!

Steve Melville, Jazz Guitar, Uncorked on Main, Wednesdays at 6 pm

The soothing sounds of Steve Melville’s jazz guitar layered over his Country, Latin, Traditional, Ballad and Jazz tracks – relaxing musical backdrop to a tapas style meal balanced by a fine wine or innovative cocktail. All happening each Tuesday night at the fabulous Uncorked on Main, 6-9 pm (when you can actually walk right into Uncorked and grab a seat!). With just a hint of Lenny Breau, this is the lounge experience Georgetown has been missing.steve m

Steve picked up guitar at the age of 15 in his native Jamaica, and was encouraged by the expert hand of  legendary Ska pioneer Ernest Ranglin. (Photo L-R: Jamaica natives Monty Alexander, Ernest Ranglin and Steve Melville).

He also plays at local events, and has a weekly Saturday stint from 6-10 pm at Georgetown’s The Cellar Steak and Seafood fine dining restaurant. Having retired from Air Canada 20 years ago, Steve has since applied his time and energy to becoming the guitarist that showed so much potential as a youth. Air Canada’s gift to the local live music scene!

Jackob Franiczek, Jazz Guitar, Uncorked on Main, Thursday, Aug 23 at 7 pm

Jackob began playing the guitar at the age of 13. His early musical influences include classic Rock guitar heroes such as Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page as well as more modern musicians. While in high school his musical focus was directed towards different Punk Rock and Heavy Metal bands while at the same time studying with different teachers who showed him the importance of reading music and understanding theory.

Jackob now spends most of his time familiarizing himself with the Jazz tradition while playing and gigging with a band that plays a variety of styles ranging from Swing to Jazz Fusion to Hip-Hop. He is also playing dinner music/Jazz gigs with a variety of musicians that are studying in post-secondary Music programs in Ontario.
