Jimmy Pearson, Singer/Songwriter/Instrumentalist, Copper Kettle Pub, Sunday, Dec 17, 3-7 pm

It must be humble, sincere, crunchy and organic if it’s a song by Toronto Based Folk/Rock artist Jimmy Pearson. As a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, Jimmy strives to connect to thoughtful audiences with songs that embrace the pathetic and awkward facets of life.

Jimmy Pearson is a bona fide artist who crosses over several genres to reach the end goal – a connection with listeners – through expressive vocals, literary and thoughtful lyrics and a sound that is up-front and personal – in other words, Jimmy is real – Indie Spoonful

Watching Jimmy play is kind of like watching open heart surgery; it’s personal, complex, he keeps the rhythm going no matter what, and you can’t look away. With his voice, carefully crafted songs, guitar, and two kick pedals under his feet he left the audience with the feeling that there’s more going on than meets the eye. – Summerfolk Music and Crafts Festival

Jimmy has a talent for songwriting, as well as performing those songs. It’s this type of album that always gets me, as it shows the talent behind the artist when they can write songs that appeal to many genres, and this is the case for “Good Friends”. – Canadian Beats

Guess who’s playing at Time Out … our own Neil Cotton and Hawk’s Nest. Named after Rockabilly hero Ronnie Hawkins, the band proudly bears the Country Rock banner.

Neil took his first music lesson (lap-steel) when he was 8 years old but didn’t take up performing until he was 27. He has been with three bands over the years, and we’re lucky to call him one of our own. Pop in and tip your cap to a local music legend.
