On October 22nd, join us as we kick off the 3rd season of our Behind the Songs concert series.  We’ve got an incredible line-up of four songwriters who will make some beautiful moments happen on our stage!  Chris Henderson, Eric Taylor, Bre McDaniels and Jenny Banai are all talented artists in their own right. With all four of them sharing the stage, it’s bound to be magical.

Behind the Songs is a monthly concert series that features Canadian songwriters in a songwriters circle format. We take songwriters from various backgrounds, put them on stage, and encourage them to share with the audience their songs, the stories behind their work, and a bit about their writing process. This intimate format enables the audience to feel closer to the songwriters and to learn more about them and their creative process. You don’t have to be a songwriter to enjoy this; as long as you enjoy music, this event is for you!

Following the feature performance, there will be an open stage, where anyone is welcome to share one or two of their own songs. Join us for this special night of music and story-telling, and in welcoming these talented songwriters and performers to the stage… they will be on from 8:00pm to 9:30 pm, with our open mic session to follow.
