August: Trent Severn and Leah Mathies

Summer is nearly over as August comes along.  For a little pick-me-up to remember the carefree days of summer, come on out to see Trent Severn and Leah Mathies on Friday August 12.


Trent Severn is comprised of three very talented ladies on their own – Emm Gryner, Dayna Manning and Lindsay Schindler – but put them together and it’s an explosion.  Their songs are quintessential Canadiana. What does that mean? Well, with songs such as “Stealin Syrup” (about the big maple syrup heist in 2012) and references to Mulroney, the Bluenose, William Lishman (the guy who taught geese to fly with his ultralight aircraft), Steven Truscott (who was wrongfully convicted at the age of 14) and of course snowstorms, how could they be singing about anything but Canada?  Some of the ideas for the songs come from experiences with other Canadians and the communities that make up this great country.  They love hearing stories from all parts of Canada.  (Who knows?  Maybe Desboro will make it into their next song…)  They’ve even sung with Col Chris Hadfield!  Their songs are country and folk rolled together with banjo, guitar, bass, violin/fiddle, stomp box and three part harmonies. It’s going to be a fun time!  We’re very much looking forward to hearing their voices echoing through the Hall.

Leah Mathies is another bright light in the world of music.  She’s got a fresh, young voice that hails from a farm from the Owen Sound area.  She’s only beginning her career but is already a prolific writer.  You might have heard her song, “Mesmerized”, which she wrote when she was in Grade 10!  She’s what you might call “a rising star”.  Come out and support our local artists.  We’re excited to have her join us and show off what she’s been working on.

Don’t miss this night of fantastic harmonies, stories and fun.

So come on out on Friday August 12, 2016
